PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, Va. — A man is being sought after police say he stabbed a loss prevention employee to death when he was caught shoplifting from a Burlington Coat Factory in Woodbridge.

On March 4, a suspect was spotted shoplifting inside the store located at 2700 Potomac Mills Circle. Police have identified this suspect as Jamel Carlos Kingsbury, 35. They say that Kingsbury was confronted by two loss prevention employees as he left the store and accuse him of fatally stabbing one during the ensuing confrontation.

Kingsbury apparently fled on foot. Police searched for him, to no avail. They eventually identified him due to a previous unrelated domestic call earlier that morning.

The victim of the stabbing died after being transported to the hospital. He has been identified as Larry Drumgole, 44, of Rappahannock.

Jamel Kingsbury is a black male, 6’2″, 190 lbs with black hair and green eyes. He is wanted for murder. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact police at 703-792-6500 or Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS.

This is Prince William’s third homicide of 2017.
