crime scene

The Ashland Police Department is asking the public for help catching a killer or killers in the 2002 slaying of Truman Stanley.

Stanley, 58, was killed in his home in the 500 block of North James Street in Ashland between 10:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 25, 2002, and 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26, 2002.

“We are looking for individuals that may have information about the tragic murder of Mr. Stanley,” said Ashland Police Chief Doug Goodman.

“Mr. Stanley’s family has waited 17 years and still has not been able to receive the justice they deserve,” Goodman said. “We implore anyone with information to contact us immediately.”

According to a Richmond Times-Dispatch report, police said Stanley was found dead by a neighbor who called police after checking on Stanley and finding him deceased and the house in disarray.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Investigator Matt Hileman at (804) 412-0625 or Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000.

Callers can remain anonymous.
