Fraud investigation in York County

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A man claiming to raffle off cars for the Colonial Parkway Victims Fund is now at the center of a fraud investigation.

Family members of the unsolved murder victims got suspicious of Fred Atwell's fundraiser last month and filed a complaint with the York County Sheriff's Office.

Wavy.com reports Atwell surrendered Tuesday and is charged with one count of fraud.

Authorities say there were never any cars to raffle off.
