    VA - Billy Maxwell, 17, Goochland County, 18 Sept 2010

    http://www.wtvr.com/wtvr--goochland-...0,675952.story

    Investigators say 17 year-old Billy Maxwell was found lying in the middle of the road

    *snipped

    Police say at approximately 3:00 a.m. Saturday, someone called police to report a body lying in the middle of Broad Street and Maidens Road in Goochland County.

    It is not exactly clear as to all of the circumstances surrounding the death of 17 year-old Billy Lee Maxwell III. Upon the arrival of emergency crews, Maxwell was found unresponsive with severe injuries. He would later succumb to those injuries at the scene.

    Investigators believe that Maxwell died between 1:30 a.m. – 3:00 a.m.

    The Goochland County Sheriff's Office and Virginia State Police are working closely together to determine the events that ended in this tragic loss of life. No vehicles or other people were at the scene when this incident was reported or when authorities arrived. They are not sure whether he was a passenger in a car earlier in the night, or a pedestrian who was hit and killed by a vehicle.

    Maxwell's body has been taken to the Medical Examiner's office for an autopsy to determine cause of death.

    Investigators are asking to hear from anyone who may have seen anything in the area of Broad Street Road between Oilville and Maidens Rd from 1:30am to 3am.

    OMG, poor boy. It sounds like it might have been a hit and run. Bless the person that stopped and called for help.

    Authorities seek clues to teen's death

    (*snipped)



    By: Laura Geller

    GOOCHLAND, VA (WWBT) - Goochland Sheriff James Agnew doesn't have many clues as to exactly how 17-year old Billy Lee Maxwell III died.

    "We are virtually going to be handicapped with no information until someone does come forward," he said.

    Friends tell us Maxwell was with them at a party earlier Friday night.

    When one friend wanted to leave, Maxwell said he'd get a different ride home.

    What a beautiful boy.

    We had a case a few years ago where a young man about 23 was found lying in the road. He bled out right there in the street. A drunk driver had hit him and kept going. He took a year for the guy to finally confess. He said at the time he thought he hit a dog. Didn't matter, he should have stopped to check. I guess his own hide was more important than anything or anyone he hit.

    I wonder if the ME will be able to find any paint or any other identifying marks that would lead them to a vehicle?

    17years old. RIP young man. Sending prayers for this young man's family.

    So sad. Billy Maxwell's dad begs for answers.

    It is extremely common to speed on these roads....and me thinks the timing may have a lot to do with probably partying at someone's house and then going home....many of the homes out here are so isolated that it wouldn't be a short drive home. A lot of people just stay the night at the house they are at - simply because it's just too far to go home (especially if drinking is involved). RIP Billy...hope they find some answers.

    PS - There are SO many deer here - if an inebriated driver heard a clunk, he would have assumed it was a deer. Since moving here from FL, I have to CONSTANTLY remind myself not to swerve...no matter what is in the road. That's horrible, isn't it? But many, many people have been killed trying to avoid a deer, dog, etc. on these roads...there isn't even a shoulder on a lot of them...just trees. The driver may have thought it was a deer. =(

    Yes, it's possible the driver might have thought it was a deer, but if you were driving on THAT night, on THAT road, at THAT time of night and hit something...well, now that you know it wasn't a deer, wouldn't you come forward? I know you would, I just can't understand why whoever did this, if it was done without realizing it was a person, they haven't come forward. The charges would probably be a lot less than if they wait weeks, months, years before they come forward.

    I totally agree...who knows if they have even seen the news....or have heard about it.

    FWIW, I was not defending someone if they thought they ran over a deer =( I haven't, but I sure as heck would go back and look. Hopefully this person wasn't so intoxicated that they have no memory...I'm hoping their car is pretty damaged (if it was a car) and that someone will put two and two together. I can't imagine what kind of person wouldn't come forward if they knew they did this =(

    Truthful Lies, I'm sorry. I wasn't insinuating that you wouldn't stop if you thought you had hit a deer. Now, being female, if it was a dark road I might not stop but I think I would call LE and tell them I hit something.

    "UPDATE: Person responsible for Goochland teen's death not coming forward"

    "The medical examiner has announced the cause of death to be a severe head injury and has been determined to be accidental."

    http://www.nbc12.com/Global/story.asp?S=13186504

    Read the comments....someone mentions a name and asks where that person's car is.

    I find it rather odd that the medical examiner is calling it accidental. Since they have no idea what happened, that seems like an awfully big supposition to me.

    You're right...I'm guessing they only said it because his injuries were consistent with a car hit, and not repeated blows, etc. =( But, what rules out the possibility that someone ran him down intentionally?
