The Farmville murders occurred in Farmville, Virginia in September, 2009 – the quadruple bludgeoning homicide of Mark Neiderbrock, his estranged wife Debra S. Kelley, their daughter Emma Neiderbrock and her friend Melanie Wells.
Emma Neiderbrock shared a relationship with Richard McCroskey, a troubled aspiring rapper. Together, Emma Neiderbrock, McCroskey, her mother and father, along with friend Wells, attended a horrorcore concert the week before. When Wells' mother could not locate her daughter, she alerted police, who discovered the murders.
McCroskey, 20 years old, was subsequently arrested, later convicted of the murders and sentenced to life in prison. He is serving his sentence at Sussex I State Prison in Waverly, Virginia.
