Lovingston
Nelson County, Virginia

Two years ago we had the sad and unfortunate task of breaking the news regarding the disappearance of Nelson teen, Alexis Murphy.

After a massive search and subsequent arrest, Randy Taylor was convicted and sentenced in July of 2014 in that case. He is currently serving two life sentences for her murder.

Lt. Billy Mays with the Nelson County Sheriff’s Department (the lead investigator in that case) told our media partner over at CBS 19 that a search continues for any remains of Alexis, but time has worked against any new evidence.

“Trying to corroborate and verify what’s being said today, it is difficult to do because we’re talking about a two year period,” said Mays. “Any video or any sort of surveillance that may have been out and about of the vehicles that they’re claiming they saw is no longer there.”

Lt. Mays tells BRLM, regardless, any and all leads continue to be followed in hopes of providing any new information.
