RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - We now know how Farmville detectives knew to look for suspect, Richard McCroskey.

The 20 year old was arrested at Richmond International Airport last Saturday, one day after four bodies were discovered inside the home of a Longwood professor.

Farmville police confirm investigators were tipped off by a "horrorcore" rap artist in New Mexico.
