CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WTVR)–Marcia Powers first heard about  the body found at the Chesterfield recycling center on the news.  At that time, she had no idea the body found was her oldest brother, Mark Henshaw.

“It’s hard to get the image out of my head,” Powers said Monday.

“Can’t imagine what the workers who found him thought,” she said. “Or anybody who would do that.”

Marcia Powers knew her brother Mark, a homeless veteran, would often seek shelter under the Boulevard bridge.

“Very difficult to understand that someone would throw him away like trash,” Powers said.

Never did she think he’d be found in a heap of recyclables, his body badly decomposed, in a Chesterfield recycling facility off Old Stage Road, just over 20 miles away.

“He was just a simple guy,” she said. “No college education-just do what he had to do to get by.”
