NELSON COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) – Nelson County Commonwealth’s Attorney Anthony Martin said the search for 17-year-old Alexis Murphyhas not stopped with the arrest of Randy Allen Taylor, age 48, of Lovingston, Virginia.

Martin said he could not comment on Taylor’s arrest because he was “ethically prohibited” from making pre-trial statements that could impact an eventual trial.

“I am reminded once again how close and tight knit Nelson County is,” Martin said during a Monday morning press conference. “This has been and continues to be a great example of multiple law enforcement agencies working together.”
