Taj Rashad Bullock, the Henrico, VA., man who went missing on June 10, has been found dead in a wooded area in the eastern part of the county. He was 25.

Police have not released any other information at this time.


Bullock’s father said the 25-year-old was seeking a new direction, turning from drugs and getting back to work.

“I don’t understand what’s going on,” Bullock’s father said Monday night.

The body has been sent to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to determine cause of death.

In 2014, Bullock was arrested in connection with an armed robbery at a gas station convenience store that occurred in 2013.

In 2013, Bullock entered the Petrol gas station store at 901 Winston Churchill Drive, confronted employees with a handgun and escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash. No injuries were reported.

Hopewell Police arrested Bullock in connection with the robbery. He was convicted of armed robbery, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. h/t
