Roanoke Police Still Seeking Black Male in Abbot Street Homicide

May 13, 2013

The Roanoke Police Department has made an arrest in a homicide that occurred on May 7, 2013. Officers responded at 8:37 p.m. to the 1400 block of Abbott Street in reference to a shooting. Upon arrival officers located two adult males. Both had been shot. One male was located lying in the road and was pronounced dead at the scene.

He is identified as Wilson Lenin Abarca-Mejia, age 30 of Roanoke. The other male was also located outside and had a gunshot wound. He was conscious at the scene and was transported to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital.

Through the course of the investigation officers were able to identify a suspect. That suspect identified as Anita Otey, age 19 of Roanoke, was arrested by Roanoke Police on May 11, 2013, at a residence in Roanoke.

She is charged with murder. No additional arrests have been made. The investigation into this incident is ongoing. Officers are seeking a second suspect described as a black male, between 19 and 20 years of age, approximately six feet tall, weighing approximately 150 pounds.

Anyone with information regarding this suspect or additional information regarding this crime should call the Roanoke Police Department at (540) 853-5959 or Crime Line at (540) 344-8500. Crime Line may offer a monetary reward for any information leading to an arrest in a crime.


Crime by Race in Virginia

In 2014 I pulled the incidents below from the Roanoke police for January to the first week of June. I was surprised by the number of blacks - Roanoke is about 26% black.

In the ones where race was identified as 14 black, 4 white, 4 unknown. When I used the 2012 State Police crime report they revealed there's no criminal category for Hispanics so their high crime rates inflate the white rate because they are counted as white - so white here is white/Hispanic and really everyone else. Asians by far have the LOWEST crime rates.

Blacks are about 20% of the Virginia population, Hispanics about 8%.

Blacks per capita commit 10.3 times the murders of whites in Virginia.

Blacks per capita commit 3.45 times the rapes of whites. There were 231 more white victims of rape than white offenders but 184 more black offenders than black victims. National stats show white on black sexual assaults are virtually zero. Do the math.

Blacks per capita commit 15 times the robberies of whites in Virginia.

Blacks per capita commit 4.6 times the assaults of whites in Virginia.

Blacks per capita commit 3.6 times the burglaries of whites in Virginia.

Conclusions: while the above figures are rough but they correspond closely with arrests and subjects in Roanoke. Likely the 4 unknowns are also black.
