updated news flash image

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

September 3, 2020


Today marks the fifth anniversary of the murder of Jason Lee “Jay” Shifflett. Jay was murdered in the early morning hours of September 3, 2015, during a home invasion robbery at his residence in the 1500 block of Carlton Avenue. 

An eyewitness described three masked intruders, one of which demanded money and then shot Jay at close range. All three fled the scene and possibly entering a white SUV of unknown make and model.

Over the course of the past five years, detectives have interviewed numerous individuals who have provided extensive information and leads. While their cooperation is greatly appreciated, it has not led to an arrest. 

Detectives are convinced there are other individuals who have information that will aid in solving this murder. For the sake of his family, we ask them to be courageous and to come forward with any information that will finally deliver justice for Jay Shifflett.

Jay Shifflett was a beloved son, brother, and father who is survived by family and friends who desperately seek answers to his senseless murder.

Anyone with information regarding Jay’s homicide is encouraged to call Det. Sgt. Ronald Stayments of the Charlottesville Police Department at (434) 970-3280 or Crime Stoppers at (434) 977-4000.
