CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. – A death investigation is underway Friday afternoon at the Suburban Village Way mobile home park off Robious Road in Bon Air.

Chesterfield police, including the department's mobile command unit, were on the scene for about four hours.

Authorities were called after a friend stopped by the man’s home to check on him around noon. That’s when WTVR CBS 6 reporter Jon Burkett said the man was seen slumped over in a chair inside the home.

Neighbors said they thought something was amiss because they had not seen the man for the past few days. They said he normally walked to a nearby grocery store between 10 and 11 a.m. each day.

The medical examiner took photos of the inside of the trailer and a Saturday autopsy will determine the man’s cause of death.
