NBC29 In Depth: The search for Alexis Murphy

Alexis Murphy was last seen on Aug. 3 at a gas station in Lovingston, Va. An extensive search was conducted, but Murphy was not found.

Authorities arrested Randy Taylor on Aug. 11, and charged him in relation to the case. Taylor admits to being with Murphy on Aug. 3, but points to another person.

After a 5 day trial, he was found guilty of first-degree murder and abduction and sentenced to two life terms. At his sentencing he asked for a 20-year sentence in exchange for information leading to Alexis Murphy. Both the prosecution and her family declined.
