Late last night, Richmond, Virginia police tweeted a miracle message. Missing Kaiden Burnside, age 2, had been found safe following an Amber Alert and a frantic search for him throughout the area. Kaiden was found abandoned in a stolen SUV on Jennie Scher Road in Richmond. He was reunited with his frantic mother minutes later.
Police have apprehended Jamal Louis Clemons. He is charged with robbery, robbery with a firearm, abduction, and use of a firearm in connection with a felony by a convicted felon. The stolen SUV had been left running with Kaiden in his car seat in the back.
Police believe the white 2012 GMC Terrain was stolen as a getaway car following the murder of a man and a woman in Richmond’s Church Hill neighborhood. The couple has not been identified by police, nor has Kaiden’s relationship to them, if any, been made clear. A Richmond police spokesperson stated that it is not believed that Clemons knew there was a child in the back of the vehicle.
Richmond Police are hard at work this morning looking for an additional suspect. An investigation continues.
