Minor League Baseball pitcher Blake Bivens mourns the deaths of his wife, son, and mother-in-law after they were brutally murdered at their home in Keeling, Virginia on Tuesday, 27th August.

Police arrested Bivens' teen brother-in-law after finding him the major suspect of the ma s sacre. The boy, who ran naked across the streets, led the police through a chaotic chase before they nabbed him.

Pittsylvania County Public Safety had issued a warning to residents urging them to look out for Emily's brother, Matthew Bernard. Matthew, who had fled after the crime, emerged naked near a Keeling Baptist Church.

In a video captured by WSET, Matthew can be seen circling a police officer multiple times before he approached a man in the parking lot of the church and placed him in a chokehold. After a few minutes long chase, police arrested him near the woods.
