    A volunteer police reservist from Virginia, who had been reported missing a week ago, is dead, police said Friday. News4's Chris Lawrence has the latest details.

    Police have arrested another person in connection with the death of volunteer police reservist Kevin Quick in Virginia.

    Anthony L. White, 22, of Mineral, Va., was arrested in Louisa County and charged with one felony count of gang participation.

    Seven people are now under arrest in connection with Quick's death.

    Halisi Uhuru, Leslie Hope Casterlow and Anthony Darnell Stokes have been charged with being principals in the 2nd degree to the crime of murder. Virginia State Police Spokeswoman Corinne Geller said the suspects have not been charged with murder, "but in association with [Quick's] death."

    State Police have claimed they were members of a street gang.

    Last week, a brother and sister from Albemarle County were arrested and charged in the theft of Quick’s silver 1999 Toyota 4Runner, which was found Feb. 3.

    Mersadies Shelton and Daniel Mathis are charged with possession of stolen property and grand larceny.

    Another sibling, Shantai M. Shelton, 24, was arrested on an unrelated outstanding arrest warrant from Louisa County. Mathis was also arrested on four felony warrants and three misdemeanor warrants issued by the Louisa County in an on-going shooting investigation.

    Quick, 45, of Rockfish, Va., was a 25-year veteran of the volunteer reserve officers of Nelson County and had a 4-month-old daughter. His father was also a police officer.

    "The Quick family has been an institution here for 30 years," Waynesboro Police Sgt. Brian Edwards said. "Kevin was an amazing, kind individual."

    Quick had been missing since Jan. 31. Police say Quick left his mother's Afton, Va. home around 10:15 p.m. that night, and was reported missing when he never arrived at a friend's house for a surprise party in Albemarle County.

    Quick’s SUV was recovered outside a home in Feb. 3 in Mineral, Va. Police found rubber gloves, swabs, a wallet and a green, leafy substance inside. 

    Then, police found Quick's body in a remote part of Virginia. His remains were officially identified Friday.
