As we have been updating most of Wednesday evening, local and state authorities are on the scene of a suspicious death at 7275 Rockfish Valley Highway in Afton, Virginia. That’s just north of the Greenfield Community in Nelson County. Earlier police released a description of a dark green Chevy Malibu they are on the lookout for. The car belonged to Opal Page who NCL can now confirm is the 73 year old woman found dead by a neighbor late Wednesday evening. Authorities notified the next of kin earlier Wednesday night.

  8. I am shocked at the news of this tragedy! Mrs. Page was a sweet and wonderful aide at Rockfish in the years that I attended. She was also a sweet and loving grandmother and always spoke so lovingly of her family. I am just disgusted that someone could be so evil to have done this. My thoughts and prayers go out to Mrs. Page’s family.
