UPDATE 5 p.m.:  Virginia State Police have not identified the body found in Goochland yesterday but they are now calling Quick's case a death investigation.

Officials say participation from the public has been "incredible."  Investigators are still actively pursuing leads and tips.  Additional charges and arrests could be forthcoming, officials said.

One felony count of gang participation has been added to the charges against three people arrested in connection with Capt. Kevin Quick's case. The suspects were arrested outside a Prince William hotel Thursday night.

GOOCHLAND CO. -- Two men and a woman were charged Friday in Goochland County as principals in the second-degree of a capital murder during an abduction, court records show.

Police have indicated the three suspects are charged in connection with the death of Kevin Quick, 45, of Rockfish, a Waynesboro reserve police captain missing since Jan. 31.

On Thursday, Virginia State Police announced the discovery of a body on the Goochland and Fluvanna county line during the search for Quick.

A press conference is scheduled for Friday at 4 p.m. in Waynesboro, police said.

A phone call to the Goochland County Sheriff’s Office seeking mugshots of the three suspects was referred to the Virginia State Police, who are in charge of the probe into Quick’s disappearance.

Goochland County General District Court records show the following individuals have been charged as principals in the second degree of a capital murder during an abduction: Leslie H. Casterlow, of Manassas; Anthony D. Stokes Jr., of Manassas; and Uhuru Halisi, of Danville.

In an email sent Friday morning, Virginia State Police said the charges mean “these individuals are not being charged with Quick’s homicide but in association with his death.” This is the first confirmation from state police that Quick is dead.

On Wednesday, police arrested two suspects in connection with Quick’s stolen SUV, which was found earlier this week abandoned in Louisa County. Mersadies Shelton, 20, and her brother Daniel Mathis, 18, were arrested and charged with possession of stolen property connected to the theft of Quick's 1999 Toyota 4Runner, police said.

Mathis was also arrested on four felony warrants and three misdemeanor warrants issued by the Louisa County Sheriff's Office in connection with an armed robbery and shooting investigation following a Sunday night incident, police said.

His other sister, Shantai M. Shelton, 24, was arrested on an unrelated outstanding warrant issued by the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office, authorities said.
