CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WTVR)–Paresh D. Patel was walking right in front of the surveillance camera in front of his RaceWay gas station and convenience store on Jeff Davis Highway when he was abducted early Sunday morning, but police haven’t released that footage or said much else about the case.

RICHMOND, Va (WTVR) — There are still a lot of unanswered questions surrounding a body found along the slave trail at Ancarrow’s Landing early Thursday evening. The area where the body was dumped is along the James River where there is one way in, and one way out.

From September 2012:
The Chesterfield County store owner who was abducted and found dead last week was the plaintiff in a civil lawsuit expected to go to trial this week...
The lawsuit had been seeking $350,000 in punitive damages and at least $500,000 for lost profits and damaged inventory and supplies...
A two-day jury trial was set to begin Wednesday in the civil case. Montgomery said the case has not been dismissed but that Patel's attorney has moved to have the case "continued generally."
Investigators told us Monday the store owner was grabbed by the arm and put into a dark mini-van by unidentifiable, hooded suspects. "It looks like they went for Mr. Patel specifically," explained Major Crimes Capt. Emmett Williams. The van went south toward Chesterfield. The next piece of evidence police have is at Anncarrow's Landing, where Patel's body was found four days later.
"That timeline is still very hard to put together," Williams told us. He says detectives are working to figure out what happened during those four days. They don't know at this point when in that time Patel was killed or even where, meaning there's no murder scene from which to collect evidence...
"We've been able in the last year to move forward one small step at a time," Williams said. One of those small steps has been looking into why Patel may have been targeted. "Right at that time period there was a taskforce that was investigating cigarette trafficking up and down the interstate corridor there, Richmond, Chesterfield and Henrico and that very much is one of the issues that we looked at," Capt. Williams detailed.
