    VA - Lewis, 51, & Roicana Casper, 17, shot to death, Richmond, 1 Jan 2006

    Slayings of father, daughter probed
    Case is described as double homicide; pair said to have been close
    Roicana Casper, 17, and her father, Lewis Aaron Casper Jr., were best friends.

    They watched football games together, teamed up to play video games, and had routine father-daughter conversations.

    "There were just so many different things they did. He did things with her better than what I would do," said Patsy Casper.

    This Jan. 30, she would have celebrated her daughter's 18th birthday and her 16th wedding anniversary.

    I had just read that article and was going to post it Prayers. It appears that Richmond police have their hands full.

    yes they do.


    I remember when I started following Taylor Behl's case, I was posting some statistics on how dangerous Richmond was. There seemed to be a dispute about how dangerous the city actually was, but statistic show that for the size of the city, it is one of the most dangerous cities in its population range in the country. I feel for them and for the safety of the people who live there.
    It's a beautiful town, but something needs to be tightened up a little bit there.

    Here's a slightly updated story
    http://www.timesdispatch.com/servlet...=1045855934842

    Friday had been the couple's wedding anniversary AND the daughter's birthday. I feel so bad for the mother.
    I wonder if the murder was random or not.

    Richmond has really been in the news lately. So sad. I live near Richmond and work here. I feel really bad for this family, and the other families that have had tragedy here recently.

    Does anyone think that this is related to the family murder in Richmond? Very odd coincidence, if not

    From the Richmond Times Dispatch, Jan 8

    http://www.timesdispatch.com/servlet...=1128769183075

    ". . . Monroe said Dandridge and Gray are not suspects in the New Year's Day shooting deaths of Lewis Aaron Casper Jr. and his 17-year-old daughter, Roicana Casper, in their Terminal Avenue home.

    "We have strong leads and will bring this case also to a successful conclusion," Monroe said. . ."

    Casper funeral overflows with people and emotion

    A South Richmond church was overflowing with both people and emotion yesterday afternoon for the memorial service of 17-year-old Roicana Casper and her father, Lewis Aaron Casper, shot to death in their home New Year's Day.

    More than 400 people squeezed into the Zion Baptist Church, where the Rev. Robert L. Pettis Sr. delivered an impassioned eulogy urging community members to do more than espouse support for the police, but also to "live with Christ" and make sure others do as well. "The sins of a few can bring judgment" on all, he said.

    I was thinking they are related. You don't know what to think with what LE says any more, they are doing a good job of misleading me that's for sure!

    The map showing the other two family slaying locations show them to be not very far away from the Casper home. I think the Richmond police originally said the other two family slayings were not connected so it's hard to trust what they are saying now.
