As NCL first reported Monday afternoon , two Nelson men remain behind bars without bond, charged with the 1st degree murder of 73 year old Opal Page of Afton, Virginia. Earlier Tuesday, Nelson Sheriff David Brooks confirmed to NCL that he was confident the murder weapon used in Mrs. Page’s homicide had been recovered in nearby Waynesboro, Virginia.
This afternoon Sheriff Brooks confirmed more evidence had been gathered. “This greatly strengthens our case again the two individuals charged with Mrs. Page’s murder,” said Sheriff Brooks. Though he would not elaborate on exactly what was found, the sheriff told NCL the pieces of evidence found are of high value in the case against Griffin pictured above, and 18 year old Christopher Meeks charged with the same crime.
