Morgantown Police Department - NEWS RELEASE
Her fb: Alexa Randolph
Interesting comments on MPD's Facebook post, however no news from LE or media.
I too noticed comments from friends/family- but find it odd that the police and news have yet to report anything corroborating the social media posts. Is this typical when an investigation is under way or unusual? My nephew lives in Morgantown and this story is rather shocking
There is typically a lag from when info may be coming out of social media but LE hasn't yet formally announced anything. Usually it's because LE needs to follow procedures, such as evidence collection (if it's a crime/suspicious death or the like) and to notify next of kin.
I see. It was so weird, started doubting the valiity of social media posts. Guess we will wait and see what LE says.
Wow Jesus, if the rumors are true... this poor woman.
UPDATE: Police locate body of missing Morgantown woman
LE has confirmed that her body was found.. I live in Morgantown and know some of her mutual friends. It’s awful.
This is horrific! I wonder who reported her missing and who she lived with. My heart goes out to her family and friends.
Alexa lost her Mom, now her son has lost his
Rest in peace, Alexa.
Morgantown Police Department

This is absolutely heartbreaking! I hope they solve this soon! I really want to know who she was living with and who reported her missing.
It is. So senseless. Why would anyone hurt her?
May she rest in peace.
Is there no thought of this being a suicide? Everyone on WS seems to assume homicide. Certainly would be an odd suicide scenario, just thought I'd ask!
Because of some specific things said in comments (linked earlier).
Man, I hate this. I always felt really safe in Morgantown. That poor girl.
She was found in a cargo area aka trunk. I don't think it was suicide.
When you google her street address, you can see that she lived in a pleasant, quiet residential area. I hope she had nosy neighbors.
