A woman who was reported missing last week has been found, her body located inside a car at a Walmart parking lot in West Virginia.
According to a press release from the Morgantown Police Department, 32-year-old Alexa Randolph was reported missing Thursday night after no one could reach her or locate her white 2018 Ford Escape.
