A 21-year-old Lorton man is facing charges related to the double homicide on Dolsie Grove Drive last week. According to the Fairfax County Police Department, Kelsey Jordan McCrimmon, 21, of Dogue Indian Circle in Lorton, was arrested Monday, July 31, by Fugitive Squad assisted by members of the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force.
McCrimmon was apprehended around 4:30 p.m. in the area of the Cosmopolitan Apartments on Lorton Station Boulevard, on an unrelated robbery charge. The robbery occurred on Sunday, July 2. A man placed an online advertisement for a cell phone for sale. He met a potential buyer and at some point during the transaction, the buyer put a handgun in the seller’s face and robbed him of the cell phone.
The Commonwealth’s Attorney for Fairfax County authorized felony warrants charging McCrimmon with two counts of second degree murder in relationship to the double homicide on Dolsie Grove Drive on July 26. Detectives have determined that it was a drug-related incident.
