AMELIA, VA (WWBT) - The Amelia Sheriff's Office says a body found on May 4 beside a private driveway is 19-year-old Shy'Nisha M. Walker, of Richmond.

Walker's body was found in a private driveway in the 17000 block of Patrick Henry Highway off U.S. 360 around 5 a.m. Wednesday.

The sheriff said Walker had a head injury.

Latisha Walker, Shy'Nisha's mother, says:

"Shy'Nisha was a very special person who everybody loves. She was never the type to bother anybody and would gave you her shirt off her back if you needed it. She had mad love for her son and her family. I don't know what would make anybody hurt her and I hope and pray that whoever or whomever done this will pay. So if anybody knows anything please please come forward."

The Amelia Sheriff's Office is asking for anyone who may have information to call (804) 561-2118 or the Amelia Crime Solvers at (804) 561-5200.
