Person of Interest Identified in the Double Homicide in Burke
West Springfield District – Detectives from our Major Crimes Bureau continue to investigate a double homicide in the 6100 block of Eagle Landing Road in Burke. Officers responded at 8:15 a.m. for a welfare check at the home after the caller had not heard from the occupants for several days. Officers entered the home through an open window and discovered two women deceased inside a bathroom. Autopsies to confirm the identities of the women are underway by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
Preliminarily, the investigation revealed there were no obvious signs of forced entry into the home. Detectives believe these homicides to be domestic-related and not a random act of violence. A third resident of the home, Bradley Lister, 33, is unaccounted for at this time. Lister is considered a person of interest as detectives believe he could have more information as to the circumstances that led up to the homicides. Additionally, detectives want to locate him to check on his welfare. A car related to the home was missing from the driveway but has since been recovered and detectives will be processing the car for evidence.
