Sterling Homicide Victim Identified

Loudoun authorities continue to seek information in the case.

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office has released the name of a homicide victim found in a white Mercedes Benz SUV on Dec. 27 near Great Trail and Trail Run terraces in Sterling.

Jovaughn J. Johnson, 30, of Sterling, was found dead in the vehicle by deputies after someone who apparently spotted the victim placed a call to the sheriff’s office to check on him.
