Missing Teen Suspect Telling His Side of the Story

Posted: Updated:

More details are coming to light in the Alexis Murphy case.

As investigators begin their 12th day of searching for the Nelson County teen, Randy Taylor, the man accused of abducting the 17-year-old, is telling his side of the story through his attorney, Mike Hallahan.

Murphy was last seen Saturday, Aug. 3, at a convenience store in Lovingston. Taylor is the prime suspect in her disappearance, but Wednesday night, Hallahan told investigators they need to be looking for someone else.

Hallahan says his client admits to seeing Alexis the night she disappeared, but claims he wasn't the last person with Alexis on Aug. 3, but says he knows who was.

Taylor described him as "a black male, mid- to late 20s, cornrows and a 20-year-old burgundy Caprice with 22-inch wheels," Hallahan said Taylor told him.

The FBI is not commenting on the details from Taylor.
