Samantha Rachel Robinson

The FBI Richmond South Piedmont Violent Gang Task Force is working with the Lynchburg Police Department to solve the murder of 28-year old Samantha Rachel Robinson earlier this year, according to a press release issued by the FBI. FBI Richmond is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for the identification, arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the murder of this young mother. 

On January 21, 2021, officers with the Lynchburg, Virginia, Police Department were dispatched to the area of 12th Street near Pierce for a report of shots fired, according to the FBI. Responding officers found Ms. Robinson behind the wheel of her white Hyundai sedan suffering from a gunshot wound. Witnesses in the vehicle reported hearing what sounded like a rock hitting the sedan as they passed the C&C Mini Mart on 12th Street. Ms. Robinson died from the injuries she sustained from this incident. An FBI Seeking Information poster has been placed on the FBI’s webpage.

"No bit of information is insignificant to any investigation," an FBI statement on the case reads. "Persons with information that may help investigators solve this crime may provide tips to the FBI via tips.fbi.gov or (804) 261-1044."
