AJ HADSELL: Virginia vs. Wesley Hadsell for murder of step-daughter

    This happened near me. I would imagine they are waiting to charge him when he gets out for her death. With the GPS it's pretty clear who put her body there. He may not have physically killed her but she probably got the heroin from Wesley Hadsell.

    Isn't that pathetic? Parents giving their kids drugs? Breaks my heart.

    Hard to prove except if his GPS took police right to where her body was obviously he gave her the drugs.

    Agreed. He obviously knew about her death and location of her body because his GPS showed he went there. Why would he try to conceal her death unless he had something incriminating to hide? :mad:

    I'm thinking that he figured by the time they found her body evidence would be gone but forgot about the GPS.

    Investigating death of AJ Hadsell, police search for evidence on stepfather's Playstation

    Nearly four years ago detectives searched a Norfolk hotel looking for clues in the disappearance of a college freshman who was later found dead 50 miles outside the city.

    In recent months, Norfolk officers filed a search warrant seeking electronic evidence from an item they found during that 2015 search that could link the teen's stepfather to her death.

    On March 11, 2015, police searched a hotel room at the America's Best Value Inn where Wesley Hadsell was staying because his wife had become upset about his cocaine use. Officers took "a number" of items from the room, including a Sony PlayStation Vita gaming system that AJ Hadsell's mother identified as belonging exclusively to Wesley Hadsell, court documents state.

    Recently, police took out a search warrant for the gaming system. They seized electronic records looking for evidence — like pictures, videos and emails — that might link Wesley Hadsell to his stepdaughter's disappearance, according to court documents.

    "It has been my experience that individuals often communicate with their victims via e-mail and through other computer-based programs," a Norfolk officer wrote in a search warrant. "In addition, a suspect's electronic equipment often has digital evidence of crimes committed by the suspect."

    Norfolk police declined to comment on the status of the investigation, and Wesley Hadsell has not been charged with AJ Hadsell's death.

    He is currently in jail on a federal weapons charge. He told 10 On Your Side that he broke into a home to investigate his stepdaughter's disappearance and found her jacket.

    Unsealed search warrants name second person possibly connected to Norfolk teen’s death

    March 2018 marks the three-year anniversary of Anjelica "AJ" Hadsell's disappearance.

    Weeks after she was last seen, her body was found behind a home in Southampton County. At this time, no one has been arrested or charged in her death and disappearance. Her stepfather, Wesley Hadsell, has been a suspect in the case, but new court documents mention a second person who may be involved.

    News 3 is not identifying the man because he has not been charged in AJ's death. He has been in Western Tidewater Regional Jail since July 2017. Documents show this man and Wesley Hadsell were housed nearby and likely interacted with each other at the jail.

    Newly unsealed search warrants say the inmate contacted investigators with two handwritten letters this summer. In those letters, investigators say the man claims to have helped Wesley in AJ's death and disappearance, but he did not say how or when. He also says that he knew Wesley and AJ personally, claiming that the two would come to his home in Suffolk in the months leading up to her death and disappearance.

    The man says he will tell investigators about his and Wesley's involvement in AJ's death, but he wants immunity first. Court documents say investigators want to make sure that he actually knew AJ and Wesley before going to jail. They believe they will find that information and any evidence of his involvement in AJ's death on his laptop.

    Documents say the laptop is already in police custody. It was seized after the man's arrest.

    Wesley Hadsell charged with murdering his adopted daughter, A.J. Hadsell

    Nearly four years after the weeks-long search for missing college student A.J. Hadsell ended when police found her dead in a ditch, her adoptive father was charged with murdering her and hiding her body.

    Wesley Hadsell was indicted Monday by a Southampton County grand jury, Norfolk police said in a statement. He's charged with first-degree murder, second-degree felony murder and felony concealment of a dead body.

    Wesley Hadsell pleads not guilty, request jury trial for charges related to AJ Hadsell’s death

    Wesley Hadsell pleaded not guilty to three charges when he was arraigned in court on Tuesday for the 2015 disappearance and death of his stepdaughter Anjelica "AJ" Hadsell.

    Hadsell was charged after a grand jury meeting in Southampton County indicted the 40-year-old on one count of first-degree murder, one count of second-degree felony murder and one count of felony concealment of a dead body.

    A motions hearing was set for May 21st, which is when a trial date will be set.

    Hadsell is asking for a trial by jury.

    It's been a long time since he was arrested. He was their number one suspect from the beginning.

    AJ Hadsell autopsy report reveals new details on how her body was found

    AJ's autopsy paperwork was recently released, and through it we've learned more about how her body was found.

    As 10 On Your Side's reported before, AJ's body was discovered at an abandoned house off Smiths Ferry Road in Southampton County.

    The autopsy case summary says her body was found concealed, lying face down, under a piece of plywood board at the edge of a muddy creek adjacent to a shed behind that home.

    A medical examiner determined the 18-year-old died as a result of homicidal violence and acute heroin poisoning.

    The paperwork says that she didn't have a drug use history or detectable needle marks.

    Autopsy documents say although the death was attributed to heroin poisoning, asphyxia by smothering or strangling could not be ruled out.

    Hadsell is expected back in court for a motions hearing May 21.

    Trial dates set for stepfather charged in AJ Hadsell’s murder

    A man accused of murdering his adopted stepdaughter is now scheduled to go on trial next February.

    Wesley Hadsell is charged with murder in connection to the 2015 disappearance and death of Anjelica “A.J.” Hadsell. A grand jury indicted Hadsell on first- and second-degree murder charges last November.

    Hadsell appeared in court Thursday morning with his new lawyer. He maintained his innocence and also waived his right to a speedy trial.

    Hadsell has not pleaded guilty to the charges and requested a trial by jury. A two-week trial is slated to begin Feb. 24, 2020.

    The trial date was set during a hearing Thursday morning in Southampton County. A motions hearing was also scheduled for Aug. 15.
