On Thursday, February 22, 1990 between 3:30 and 4:30 pm, Anunciacion Imperial, Asian Female, was working alone as the evening clerk at the Fil-Am Grocery Store when she was brutally murdered. Robbery appears to be the motive. The Fil-Am Grocery Store is located in the 900 block of Kempsville Road in the Providence Square Shopping Center in the Kempsville section of Virginia Beach. A black male between 30 and 45 years of age was seen in the area a short time before and after the victim was found. He was described by witnesses as standing about 5’ 10’’ tall with a thin muscular build and a weathered look. He was wearing a brown or tan colored uniform.
Mrs. Imperial was a 56 year old Filipino female who had brown eyes, black with some gray hair. She was 4’ 11’’ tall weighing 147 pounds.
