NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - A woman found dead in a Norfolk home Monday night is a victim of homicide, according to police.
Chris Amos with the Norfolk Police Department said officers were dispatched to the 2400 block of Middle Avenue just after 9 p.m. Monday for a medical situation. Once on scene, officers found the body of Pamela Darlene Clark, 50, inside her home.
WAVY.com spoke to neighbors who say the affectionately called her "Mom Pam."
"She was like the momma of the block. If you didn't have it, she had it. If you didn't know, she knew. She was just sweet," recalled Sharita Green who lives nearby. "You'd see her walking through. My kids played with her grandson when he came."
Several people reported hearing a loud argument and seeing a woman pushed in front of the home where Clark's body was found just a few hours before first responders arrived.
"I would love to know what happened to her and why," said Green.
Officers originally classified Clark's death as suspicious and later reclassified it as a homicide, Amos said.
Two suspects were detained at the scene for questioning and were later charged with murder in connection to Clark's death. Amos identified the suspects as Robert Vernon Bruton, 59, and Thomas Lee Pamp, 49.
Amos said the three knew each other. Officers are not releasing a motive at this time.
