Popeye's murder victim on camera minutes before murder

By Evrod Cassimy – bio | email 

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) – We have video of Richmond's latest homicide victim taken moments before her murder.

Twenty-six year old Barbara Stinnett was shot and killed during an attempted robbery Wednesday night at the Popeye's on Chamberlayne Avenue. The victim's father was too distraught to go on camera but says that his family needs a lot of prayer right now.

Barbara's former boss showed us video of her less than an hour before she was killed. Surveillance video captured the twenty-six year old at work Wednesday night, the same night she was found gunned down in a car at Popeye's. Not even her co-workers knew it would be the last time they saw her.

"Everyone around here misses her a lot," said Reda Mohammad, Barbara's former boss. "She was the go to girl. She knew the customers, she knew exactly what they wanted."

Mohammed worked with Barbara at the Citgo on Darbytown Road in Henrico where she was known as Bobbi. He recognized the shot out car when the story broke.

"I said that looks like Bobbi's car!" said Mohammed.

It was the same car he showed she got into before the murder.

"I picked up the phone to call her and it went straight to voicemail and I said something ain't right," said Mohammed.

Barbara walked through the gas station doors to go home like she normally does for the last time Wednesday night around 8:30 p.m. Just under an hour later she lost her life.

The surveillance video also shows the other person shot in the car that night. Family spokesperson Alicia Raisin remembers seeing Barbara always hard at work. She believes there's only one way to prevent another life from ending in violence.

"They're going to have to put these guns down!" said Raisin. "They're going to have to put these guns down!"

Police have arrested 18-year-old Kevin Scott and another underage female in connection with the murder.
