Indictments Obtained in Tanglewood Road Homicide

The Richmond Police Department obtained grand jury indictments today on the person who murdered Suzanne A. Fairman of the 4700 block of Tanglewood Road last May.

Thomas E. Clark, 59, of the 7100 block of Horsepen Road, Henrico has been charged with three felonies:

  • Murder
  • Rape
  • Abduction with Intent to Defile

Clark is currently being held in the Henrico County Jail on unrelated charges. He was picked up last May, a week after Fairman’s murder.

“Knowing Clark was taken into custody so quickly was a relief for everyone involved in the investigation,” said Major Crimes Captain James Laino. “I wish we could have shared that information sooner with the community, but we didn’t want to release his name until we had all the evidence collected to present to the grand jury.”

At approximately 11:07 p.m. on Thursday, May 9th, RPD officers responded to Fairman’s home for a welfare check. When officers arrived, they found her unresponsive inside her residence.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Anyone with information about this homicide is asked to call Major Crimes Detective J. Baynes at (804) 646-3617 or contact Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000 or at The P3 Tips Crime Stoppers app for smartphones may also be used. All Crime Stoppers methods are anonymous.
