ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Court documents reveal new details in the case against DeAngelo Bonds, 22, for the dumping of a woman’s body in the Roanoke River.

During the early morning hours of February 14, officers were responding to a report of suspicious water leaking through an apartment and excessive blood outside and in the apartment at 3428 Bennett Dr. NW.

After receiving a search warrant, officers found large amounts of blood and cartridge casings, along with muddy tire marks in the grass that led to blood droplets. Crews established a crime scene around the complex there afterwards.

The apartment is rented to Bonds, who was dating Adreonna Keffer. She was known to drive a 2020 silver Mitsubishi with Virginia plates that read UMG-9377. Authorities have requested a search warrant for the vehicle.

Bonds was found at the Roanoke River Greenway Parking Lot at Brownlee Avenue SE and Bennington Street SE where he confessed to transporting Keffer’s body. A gun was also found visible on the right front passenger-side floorboard.
