Suspicion Surrounds Teen's Death

Thirteen-year-old had history of running away

MANASSAS, Va. -- Thirteen-year old Alexis Glover's death has been ruled a homicide, say Prince William County police. 
The teenager was last seen in the parking lot at the Central Library in Manassas on Wednesday.  Friday, her body was found eight miles away in a creek bed along Asdee Lane near Old Hickory Golf Club in the Woodbridge area.
Alexis, also known as "Lexie," had run away from her mother.  Alexis' mother said the girl was adopted and suffered from severe developmental and emotional disabilities because of past abuse.
Because Alexis had a history of running away, she had been fitted with a GPS bracelet.  It was found near the library.

Police conducted an extensive search using K-9 units, bloodhounds, helicopters from Fairfax and Virginia State Police, and a reverse telephone call system to contact residents and ask them to look for the girl. Manassas City police, Manassas Park police and the Prince William County Sheriff’s Office have been assisting the search. Police asked residents to check around their homes, including sheds, dog houses and other small places a child could hide.

Anyone with information about the case should call police at 703-792-6500.
