Nelson County, Virginia

As NCL has been telling you since we first broke the story of 73 year old Opal Page’s murder [2], police are still on the search for her killer(s). Mrs. Page’s car was found Thursday in Waynesboro [3]. Police think the murderer stole the car after crime then abandoned it in Waynesboro. Friday Nelson County, Virgina Sheriff, David Brooks, released more information about possible suspects in the case.

“We had a witness turning from Chapel Hollow Road north onto Route 151 around 5 AM Wednesday morning, the day of Mrs. Page’s murder. That driver reported seeing two suspicious males near the driveway of Opal Page’s driveway,” Sheriff Brooks tells NCL. The first male is described as 5’9″ to 5’10” in height wearing a red hooded zip up sweatshirt. The other male was described as slightly shorter wearing a dark colored zip up sweatshirt and darker colored bluejeans. The witness could not tell the race of either male.

The sheriff continues reviewing video surveillance recordings from area businesses along 151 in hopes of being able to pick up on anything that may help with additional clues in the case. Investigators continued canvassing the neighborhood Friday where Mrs. Page’s car was abandoned in Waynesboro.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Nelson County Sheriff’s Department at 434.263.7050.
