Pastor Ricky Baldwin of Riverstone Community Church in Jacksonville didn’t know that Richardson was under investigation.

He said, “Never in a million years would you ever thought that was possible. That’s why it’s so hard to believe now. I don’t know what all is going to come out, or what is yet to come out. I don’t know any of that. But we loved him and we love his family and plan to stick by his family.”
