GOOCHLAND COUNTY, Va. – A total of five individuals are now facing charges in connection with the disappearance and death of Kevin W. Quick, 45, of Rockfish, Va. Quick disappeared Friday night (Jan. 31, 2014) while en-route from Nelson County to Albemarle County. His personal vehicle was recovered Monday (Feb. 3, 2014) at a residence in Louisa County. Quick has served as a captain in the Waynesboro Police Department’s Police Reserve Unit for many years.

Two Albemarle County siblings, Mersadies Shelton, 20, and Daniel Mathis (aka Shelton), 18, both of the 2600 block of Barracks Road West in Albemarle County, Va., were taken into custody without incident Tuesday (Feb. 4, 2014) night. The arrests took place at a City of Alexandria hotel at approximately 11 p.m. They are each charged by state police with possession of stolen property/grand larceny for the theft of Quick’s silver 1999 Toyota 4Runner. Shelton and Mathis are still being held at the Central Virginia Regional Jail on no bond.

Tuesday night a third sibling, Shantai M. Shelton, 24, was also taken into custody at the same Alexandria location on an unrelated outstanding arrest warrant issued by the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office. Shelton lives at the same address as her siblings.

Thursday night (Feb. 6, 2014), with the assistance of the Prince William County Police, state police took three more individuals into custody without incident.
