Police take multiple knives from Solomon’s vehicle

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The search warrant for the Chevy Malibu of suspect Michael Solomon was returned by Richmond Police this afternoon and revealed many new details into the investigation into the murder of Tameka Claiborne.

According to the search warrant, a witness told police that on the day Claiborne disappeared, they saw a gold-colored car -- believed to be Solomon's Chevy Malibu -- parked near the stoop of her home on Blandy Avenue with the trunk open.

Also according to the warrant, police took DNA swabs, white tennis shoes, a knife and sheath, a piece of duct tape, two pocket knives, red substance samples, rear seat cushions, swabs of red stains and a piece of a purple glove among other items.

Prosecutors Monday filed a charge of child abduction against Solomon, the primary suspect in the murder of Claiborne. Investigators say Solomon abducted then abandoned Claiborne's son, Malik Ellison, 3, last Tuesday. 

Sources have said that Claiborne was stabbed to death. Claiborne's body was found on the shore of a home in Charles City County Friday after a three-day search.
