STAFFORD On Thanksgiving, it will be six years since Bobby Heflin was found in his Stafford County driveway. Someone killed him, police say.

That day, Nov. 25, 2004, Ralph Claud “Bobby” Heflin, 57, suffered blunt force trauma to the head. Stafford deputies arrived at 7:10 a.m.

Police say Heflin was killed early that morning or late the night before.

But now, this cold case still needs solving, according to the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office, and there is someone out there who can help. The sheriff’s office has never stopped investigating the crime, police said, but are asking for the public’s help.

“We know someone out there has information that could potentially solve this homicide,” said Stafford County Sheriff Charles Jett in a released statement. “We would like anyone who may have information pertaining to the case to call the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office. We need the public’s assistance in helping us bring to justice the person or persons responsible for the murder of ‘Bobby’ Heflin.”

Call the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office at (540) 658-4450 or Stafford Crime Solvers at 540-659-2020 with any information that will assist in this case.
