A quadruple murder suspect wanted in a Virginia family’s slaughter has been captured in Buffalo, N.Y after a year on the run, authorities announced.
Alexander Hill Jr., 48, who had been missing since the April 19, 2014 murder of a family of four — including a 2-year-old boy — inside their Petersburg home, was arrested Thursday morning and charged with their murder.
Federal and local authorities, speaking at an afternoon press conference attended by the victims’ family, said Hill’s arrest came one day after a call was placed to a tips line.
Hill initially denied being the suspected killer but his identity was confirmed through fingerprints, U.S. Marshal Bobby Mathieson said.
Hill’s arrest comes almost exactly one year after Pauline Wilkins, her daughter Vicki Chavis Ansar, her granddaughter Tanique Davis and great grandson Delvari Chavis were all found dead inside the home located south of Richmond.
Two were killed by assault and two by setting the house on fire, authorities later said.
Hill was dating Vivian Chavis who lived at the home but wasn’t there at the time of the attack, WTVR reported.
