    There is so much evidence against him, but there is also other charges....so if they don't get him for her murder- they have him on enough that he's gonna do some serious time.

    I can't see this seasoned criminal admitting to anything. Seems he has an excuse for everything.

    And this is an interview with the guy who's house the jacket was planted at.

    I'm not sure about the abduction thing, but I got the impression that was from earlier in the investigation when they weren't sure what killed her, because it says authorities "believed" he abducted her. It was new info for us that came out in the court filings earlier this month, but I think that was from when LE knew they had been together and that he dumped her body but didn't know how she died.

    He made it so obvious from the get-go that he was involved with all his blabbering and bullshitting. Just another dumb criminal who can't keep his mouth shut.

    And hell yes he planted that jacket. He also planted the pieces of freaking debit card found in their neighborhood. And the clothes they found out in the boonies. I feel bad for the guy he tried to frame.



    Oh and he already pleaded guilty to the federal ammunition charges mentioned in the articles and will be sentenced in March.

    Wesley Hadsell, stepfather of AJ Hadsell, sentenced to 20 years in prison on ammo charge

    (Nov. 15, 2016)Wesley Hadsell was sentenced to 20 years in prison on Tuesday for illegally having gun ammunition.

    U.S. District Judge Arenda Wright Allen said Hadsell has spent the past 26 years committing crime after crime, and he needs to go to prison to make people safer and get his mind right.

    "This case isn't just about ammunition," Allen said.

    The judge gave context to her sentence on the federal weapons charge Hadsell pleaded guilty to a year ago. Hadsell knew he was a felon in December 2013 and had just gotten off federal probation 10 months earlier. Nevertheless, he bought ammunition for a Winchester .40-caliber and for a Luger 9 mm from Bob?s Gun Shop, which sits on Granby Street within sight of the federal courthouse, according to court documents. He also confessed to going to a gun range in Chesapeake and firing some of it.

    "That was so brazen," Allen said. "It's mind-boggling."

    Detectives found about 80 rounds of ammunition in March 2015 while serving a search warrant inside Hadsell?s hotel room, court documents said.

    The 38-year-old has a criminal history stretching back to age 12, including burglaries, a bank robbery and claims that he abducted and repeatedly raped his first wife during a two-week span years earlier, according to a court filing.

    Allen, agreeing with prosecutors, labeled Hadsell an "armed career criminal." With that legal designation, which requires at least three violent felony convictions, he faced 15 years to life in prison. Without it, he would?ve gotten 10 at the most, and his lawyer was pushing the court to send him away for 2 1/2 years.

    Prosecutors asked Allen for only the minimum 15 years, but the judge went higher, surprising Hadsell's lawyer.

    "It definitely caught me off guard," Jason Dunn said after court. "I'm disappointed."

    Hadsell will appeal the judge's decision to label him an "armed career criminal" in the next few days and take the issue to the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, Dunn said.

    It's an argument he's been making for months. Dunn said a burglary Hadsell committed nearly 20 years ago shouldn't count as a violent felony. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on a similar issue in June, seemingly bolstering Hadsell and Dunn?s chances with Allen.

    But federal prosecutor Andrew Bosse told the judge that the case before the Supreme Court dealt with Iowa's burglary law. Virginia's statute is different and should count as a violent felony, he said.

    Judge Allen sided with Bosse, who declined to comment on the case or Allen?s sentence. She listed 12 crimes Hadsell has been convicted of, which forced him to spend eight years behind bars. Then she noted 16 other times he'd been arrested over the past two decades on charges such as arson, rape, obstructing justice and maiming or killing an animal. She noted he wasn?t convicted in those because charges were dropped, dismissed or he was found not guilty.

    "My goodness," the judge said. "You're only 38 years old."

    Hadsell pleaded guilty to the ammunition charge in November 2015 and faces a state charge related to heroin found in his hotel room the following September. Police found it because Hadsell suggested his sister find and get rid of it during a jail phone call. His attorney argued the drugs were found months later in a police search after roughly 20 people had rented the room.

    Hadsell's 18-year-old stepdaughter, Anjelica "AJ" Hadsell, was found dead from acute heroin poisoning near an abandoned home in Southampton County in April 2015. The manner of death -- accident, suicide or homicide -- is undetermined.

    Hadsell still faces rape and kidnapping charges in Ohio. The case in Delaware County relates to a 2005 incident, according to court documents released in July. Hadsell has been indicted on two counts of rape, one count of kidnapping and one count of felonious assault.

    The crimes happened on Aug. 26, 2005, officials said in court documents. That's the same day Hadsell's then-wife, Michelle Hadsell, was reported missing by her father. The new indictment names the victim as "Jane Doe" and does not specify whether she was Hadsell's wife, but the timeline fits the one given by authorities after Michelle Hadsell went missing.

    Allen said she looks at defendant's childhood for possible explanations for their crimes. But she didn't find any with Hadsell. His father was a nuclear technician who traveled a lot for work. He died in 2010. His mother, who sat crying in the courtroom, is a retired nurse and homemaker, who must?ve been devastated as she watched her son cycle in and out of prison, Allen said.

    Meanwhile, his siblings have grown up to be productive, law-abiding people.

    "There's no doubt you had a fine family," Allen said.

    She encouraged him to hew back to the morals his parents instilled in him when he was younger. Stop doing drugs. Stop lying. Stop hurting people. Get help with your drug addictions and mental health problems.

    "You have been on a roller coaster ride since you were 12," she told him. "You have to be tired."

    The judge told him he wasn?t born to wear a jumpsuit and shackles. He wasn?t born to appear regularly in the newspaper and TV news. She encouraged him to go to prison, become a model prisoner and come out.

    But, she added: "There's no question in the Court's mind that we're safer as a society if you're not here for a while."

    Then she explained what she meant by "a while" and sentenced him to 20 years.

    All of this is just sad.
    I still have a lot of questions that'll probably never be answered.
    The mother has made a lot of conflicting statements when questioned about things. Makes me wonder if she knew more. I'm also wondering if she was using too.
    There's just so much shadiness w this whole family.
    A lot of things have come out over the years, hopefully the rest of it does.

    This says it was published a few hours ago but I think it's actually from March

    Unsealed search warrants name second person possibly connected to Norfolk teen’s death
    POSTED 3:43 PM, NOVEMBER 6, 2018, BY ALLISON MECHANIC,

    NORFOLK, Va. - March 2018 marks the three-year anniversary of Anjelica "AJ" Hadsell's disappearance.

    Weeks after she was last seen, her body was found behind a home in Southampton County. At this time, no one has been arrested or charged in her death and disappearance. Her stepfather, Wesley Hadsell, has been a suspect in the case, but new court documents mention a second person who may be involved.



    News 3 is not identifying the man because he has not been charged in AJ's death. He has been in Western Tidewater Regional Jail since July 2017. Documents show this man and Wesley Hadsell were housed nearby and likely interacted with each other at the jail.


    Newly unsealed search warrants say the inmate contacted investigators with two handwritten letters this summer. In those letters, investigators say the man claims to have helped Wesley in AJ's death and disappearance, but he did not say how or when. He also says that he knew Wesley and AJ personally, claiming that the two would come to his home in Suffolk in the months leading up to her death and disappearance.

    The man says he will tell investigators about his and Wesley's involvement in AJ's death, but he wants immunity first. Court documents say investigators want to make sure that he actually knew AJ and Wesley before going to jail. They believe they will find that information and any evidence of his involvement in AJ's death on his laptop.

    Documents say the laptop is already in police custody. It was seized after the man's arrest.

    Norfolk Police are unable to comment on the case and any information found in these search warrants. They are still asking anyone with information about AJ's death and disappearance to call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP (1-888-562-5887).

    The adoptive stepfather of a Norfolk teen found dead after being reported missing in 2015 has been officially indicted on first-degree murder charges.

    On Monday, a grand jury indicted Wesley Paul Hadsell, 40, on one count of first-degree murder, one count of second-degree felony murder and one count of a felony concealment of a dead body in connection to the death of his adopted daughter, 18-year-old Anjelica "AJ' Hadsell, according to the Norfolk Police Department.

    The indictments were sought by both the Southampton County Commonwealth's Attorney and the Norfolk Police Department.

    Police say Hadsell, who's serving a 10-year appealed sentence for illegally possessing ammunition, is in the process of being returned to Southampton County.

    Wow! So there must be evidence he forcibly injected her with heroin or purposely gave her way too much or something?

    I'll have to read Virginia's murder laws, because I'm not familiar with "second-degree felony murder." In most states, felony murder is part of a first-degree murder charge, or it's a separate charge with no "degree," like here in Georgia.

    I'm guessing the drug possession would be the predicate felony for the felony murder charge, but the two different murder charges are confusing to me.

    The murder trial for the man accused of killing his teenage stepdaughter is a week and a half away.

    Wesley Hadsell faces a murder charge for the 2015 death of teenager AJ Hadsell. She went missing while home in Norfolk on spring break from Longwood University. Police found her body a month later behind an abandoned home in Southampton County.

    Hadsell spoke to 10 On Your Side from behind bars about the upcoming trial. He says he’s anxious for the trial to start, remaining adamant he is innocent.

    “I don’t know why I’m here. Honestly I don’t. I’ve never hurt my daughter,” said Hadsell. “I know that I’m innocent. I have done nothing wrong.”

    There is key evidence in the case against Hadsell, such as the GPS tracking device in his work van. The GPS lead investigators to the abandoned home where they found AJ’s body.

    Hadsell claimed he had no idea how the device got to the residence.

    “I know I’ve never been to that house. I’ve made that very clear,” explained Hadsell. “The GPS they allegedly found is a handheld GPS. It’s not like it’s a GPS attached to a work van or something like that. It was a removable sort of device.”

    In the work van, investigators also say they found gloves, duct tape and a dirty shovel, items Hadsell says were used for work, not murder.

    “Yes, they did find gloves, they should have found multiple pairs of gloves. They should have found multiple rolls of duct tape,” he said.

    During the past year, Hadsell has fought hard for his defense, even trying to get the trial moved out of Hampton Roads. His lawyer argued the media coverage of the case will make finding an unbiased jury difficult.

    The judge didn’t grant the motion.

    “I mean, anybody with this much publicity would probably worry about jury contamination. I just want what everyone else gets as a fair trial. I want an unbiased jury.”

    The trial for a man accused of murdering his stepdaughter is now underway.

    Wesley Hadsell is accused of killing of his 18-year-old stepdaughter, Anjelica 'AJ' Hadsell. Investigators found Anjelica's body in April 2015.

    However, it took more than three years to bring charges against Wesley Hadsell, who will be tried for first-degree murder, non-capital murder and felony concealment of a dead body.

    A medical examiner determined that Anjelica died by heroin poisoning.

    Hadsell appeared in court for a pre-trial last month where his attorney claimed evidence that would be used in the main trial was false.

    Hadsell pleaded not guilty to all the charges last February and requested a trial by jury. He's already in prison after being convicted for a weapons violation that's unrelated to this murder case.

    A judge has also subpoenaed Governor Ralph Northam, who is set to testify in this case since he was Anjelica's primary physician at the time of her death.

    Anjelica was a freshman at Longwood University when she vanished during spring break in 2015. It took weeks for authorities to locate her body, which was found behind an abandoned home in Southampton County.

    A key investigator is set to take the stand on Tuesday and the case is expected to last up to three weeks.

    The judge in the case declared a mistrial Wednesday afternoon.

    Prosecutors had asked for the mistrial. The judge explained the mistrial was because the defense and prosecuting attorneys could not agree on what evidence the jury would be allowed to hear.

    That evidence involved what media recordings and criminal records could be used in the case. Wesley Hadsell’s lawyer, James Ellenson, said that changed a lot for prosecutors especially.

    “Because of that, the Commonwealth's attorney had to change a good degree of their evidence that physically could not be accomplished in a day. Now what we’ll have to do is have a bunch of pre-trial motions and argue probably every single phone call, every single piece of evidence,” said Ellenson.

    Ellenson said the mistrial is also because the two legal parties could not agree in court about a stipulation they had reached prior to the trial beginning. Ellenson said Hadsell changed his mind about the stipulations after his ex-wife, Jennifer Hadsell, took the stand.

    “We sort of had an agreement and then Wesley changed his mind and that’s his right. He heard Jennifer testify and Wesley sort of realized that parts of his criminal history would come out and he felt uncomfortable about that. He didn’t feel comfortable going on with the agreement the way that we had made it,” said Ellenson.

    The judge dismissed the jurors. A new jury will be seated once the defense and the Southampton Commonwealth's Attorney's Office agree on a date for the new trial.
