Sadly, 13-year-old Alexis "Lexie" Glover was found dead yesterday afternoon in a creek bed about 8 miles from where she was last seen. It is believed she was murdered. As reported by the Washington Post,
Police said last night that they are treating Alexis "Lexie" Glover's death as a homicide but declined to provide details about the condition of the body for fear of jeopardizing the investigation. Police said that it is unclear how Lexie ended up in the creek or how long she had been in the water but that it is highly unlikely she found her own way there.
Our deepest sympathies to Alexis' family and to all who loved her for their tragic loss.
Rest in peace, Alexis.
