“This investigation began with a call to the Pittsylvania County 911 center, the morning of Dec. 12, 2021, of which a neighbor reported a structure fire,” Pittsylvania County Sheriff Mike Taylor said in a press conference. When firefighters went in the home, they found the victims.

On Dec. 13, 2021, a medical examiner ruled the manner of death for both bodies as homicide and the cause of death as gunshot wounds. The victims were identified through fingerprint examination as 25-year-old Onesimo Fermin Silva-Garcia and 33-year-old Victor Garcia-Mayorga, according to the Pittsylvania County Sheriff’s Office.

Police investigated and named Guevara-Rodriguez as a suspect.

Pittsylvania County Commonwealth’s Attorney Bryan Haskins declined to answer if other suspects were being sought or what may have motivated the shootings.


“If I say anything about this, then people start forming their own opinion about this case before this man has a fair trial,” Haskins told the Danville Register and Bee.
