A woman found dead in a Stratford Hills home Thursday has been identified by Richmond police as Suzanne A. Fairman, a 53-year-old administrator at Virginia Commonwealth University.

Police responding to a welfare check in the 7400 block of Tanglewood Road just after 11 p.m. found Fairman unresponsive in the home. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Fairman was the operational administrator for Virginia Commonwealth University’s academic learning transformation lab and graduated from the VCU School of Business, according to a university website.

Police did not say how she died but described her as a victim. The medical examiner will determine the cause and manner of death.

“After speaking with family members, detectives hope providing a photo of Ms. Fairman will prompt people to come forward with any information they may have on this case,” said Major Crimes Capt. James Laino in a written statement. “Any information, no matter how small the detail may be, could assist in solving this case.”

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000, visit www.7801000.com, or use the P3 Tips Crime Stoppers app on a smartphone.
