Vigil planned for Richmond father killed in double homicide

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

The owner of a popular Richmond towing company was gunned down in a double homicide. Family members are now pleading for answers.

James Nash and George Redmond, Junior were found shot to death outside a South Richmond home late Saturday night. Nash's family is speaking out for the first time. They are planning to hold a candlelight vigil for Nash on Thursday evening.

The incident happened along Labrook Drive. 31-year-old James Nash was a proud father and Richmond business owner.

"He pick up his kids everyday from school," said friend India Smith with tears in her eyes. "And if you knew him well enough you knew that. So how could you take him away from his kids?"

Nash's cousin D'Andre Kearney is taking the death especially hard.

"I'm crushed right now," said Kearney. "My cousin was a loving man. He cared about people."

Loved ones are at a loss and police have few leads. It is still not clear why two men sitting on their porch were gunned down.

"People hear these type of stories and think automatically this is a bad guy," we noted.

"What do you say?" we asked Kearney.

"I say only God can judge," said Kearney who says his cousin was a family man. "His friend was a truck driver. He drives trucks. These are working men who provided for their families."

James, also called Clock Mane, spent his spare time making songs at his Southern Hustle Entertainment Studio.

Nash's studio partner, Eric Collins, is still coming to grips with his friend's violent end.

"That's the last thing I ever thought I was going to hear about this man right here," said Collins.

Family and friends are asked to bring candles Thursday evening. The vigil starts at 6pm. It will be held at Nash Towing and Recovery located at 5241 Old Midlothian Turnpike.
