Police discovered what they believe are the remains of missing Virginia university student Anjelica “AJ” Hadsell who has been reported missing since March 3.
The remains were discovered Saturday April 10 in a vacant residence situated 45 miles south west of Norfolk and sent for analysis to the Southampton County Chief Medical Examiner’s Office in order to state the cause of death.
The police will most likely continue investigations at the vacant home in the following days in hope of finding some clues. Norfolk Police Officer Sam Shenouda made the following statement:
“We’ll be out here for a couple of days. The property is overgrown, mostly wooded. They’re literally going to be combing through every inch of this property searching for evidence.”
Anjelica “AJ” Hadsell was an 18-year-old-student attending Longwood University. She was last seen on March 3 at about 5.30 a.m. EST. USA Today reported that the day before her disappearing she had spoken to her adoptive father Wesley Hadsell about aquiring some money.
But the messages were odd, or at least that’s how her parents thought they were. Her mother, Jennifer Hadsell explained:
“The conversation, in my opinion, was kind of off. I can’t be 100% sure I know that was my daughter I was texting.”
Searches for the missing girl have been ongoing, with friends and family joining the police in hope they would be more efficient.
ON March 21, during as the search was in process, the father, Wesley Hadsell was arrested after he had illegally entered a home. He justified his action by sayin he though he had found Anjelica’s jacket behind a couch. He was charged with “obstruction of justice and resisting arrest, breaking and entering, and possessing ammunition as a felon”. He was denied bail.
Now Wesley’s family is starting to doubt the man’s innocence. She made the following statement:
“At one time, I didn’t think he was involved, but now I don’t know. In my heart I don’t want to believe he did, but there are things that when you start seeing on TV, places they are looking. I’m his sister – you never want to think that anybody in your family could ever do anything like this.”
FBI is also contributing to investigations. Authorities are now waiting to see the results regarding the found remains.
