While a frantic search continued in central Virginia for 17-year-old Alexis Murphy, the FBI began investigating whether the man charged in her abduction is connected to a long string of disappearances centered around the Charlottesville area.

The FBI and Nelson County prosecutors on Aug. 12 announced the arrest of Randy Allen Taylor, 48, in the disappearance of Alexis, who left her home for Lynchburg to get her hair done and vanished Aug. 3. Her car was found abandoned Aug. 6 in Charlottesville.

    Murders where the body is hidden are rare. There's only one time where it happens consistently, where the victim was forced to make an ATM withdrawal and the killer hides the body to delay the card being reported stolen. This link is to an article about a very specific crime pattern called the "Express Kidnapping" which is basically an abduction and forced ATM withdrawal. It explains the details of how the crime pattern plays out, how to expose the data and most importantly, the details of how political corruption keeps the pattern from being tracked by the police. If you or someone you know was the victim of such a crime, read this and share it with everyone you know. Then send it to your local newspaper, news station, banker and legislator. Get them to investigate it. This applies worldwide, not just in the US. http://atmsafetypin.wordpress.com/2013/07/19/8/
