Items seized in a search of the apartment belonging to a man under investigation in the disappearance of Virginia Commonwealth University freshman Taylor Marie Behl include fabric from a mattress that might be stained with blood, a cell phone that might belong to Taylor, women’s clothes and a .32-caliber gun cartridge, court documents released yesterday show.
Police refused to comment on the seized items, citing the ongoing investigation.
Richmond Police spokeswoman Kirsten Nelson went on to elaborate on the about the designation of Ben Fawley as a former “person of interest.”
“We are not calling him a person of interest because he is not a suspect, but we are still looking at him very seriously.”

videotapes, bags of clothes, a hatchet, a hammer and three pairs of underwear from an outdoor garbage can; a beaded necklace with a cross and a watch from an outdoor supercan; a black brassiere, white panties, tissues and tampon wrappers, several VCU student IDs — which might include one belonging to Taylor, copies of student IDs, a box of bones and five skateboards from inside Mr. Fawley’s apartment.
Also seized were several fitted bedsheets, a futon cover, a bra and hat and a vacuum cleaner bag.
