Young Father’s Body Found Days After He Tried Walking Home in Snowstorm

Young Father’s Body Found Days After He Tried Walking Home in Snowstorm

What a sad story to start the new year.


A young father – only 34-years-old – got into a small car accident during a bad winter storm and he decided to try and walk the six miles home and he died on the way.

His family tried to get the police to find him, but they claim the cops handled the situation all wrong. Some family members are blaming police, saying they lefy him out there to freeze to death.

They didn’t find his body for three more days.

The New York Post reported that a Virgina man who tried to walk home in a snowstorm last Monday after he crashed his car was found dead three days later, a report said.

The body of Jacob Whaley, 34, was discovered by a search party Thursday about 200 yards from the location in Louisa where his family had told authorities he may have been after he first disappeared, WRIC reported.

Whaley was trying to walk the six miles to his home in the wintry conditions, the report said.

When he stopped responding and never made it home, his relatives alerted the sheriff’s office and reported Whaley could possibly have been near Greene’s Corner Road.

Deputies responded to the site, but did not initially find him.

Whaley’s relatives said police should have found him alive.

“I’m so angry with this county,” Whaley’s mother, Shannon Whaley, told the news outlet.

“All they had to do was go out and holler for him.”


The man’s sister, Angela Whaley, added: “Louisa County let him freeze to death.”

The Louisa County Sheriff’s Office issued a statement mourning Whaley’s death.

“Our heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends of Mr. Jacob Whaley,” the office said.

“Missing Persons cases are always a top priority for the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office and we share in their grief and sorrow.”

I feel so bad that this man died, for him, his family, and his son.

I wish he would’ve stayed with his car and waited for help.
