VSP IDs Cumberland Co. murder victim; Continues search for missing woman


A spokesperson for Virginia State Police says search efforts by the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department are continuing for a missing 43-year-old woman who hasn’t been seen since Friday.  

Amy Renee Fabian has brown hair, brown eyes and is from Cumberland County.  

VSP says the sheriff’s office is continuing to follow up on several leads but is still urging people to call with any information on Fabian, or the man suspected in her disappearance, George W. Knisley of Carroll County, Maryland.  

Knisley was arrested over the weekend in North Carolina and is also a suspect in the murder of Matthew T. Broyles of Powhatan, Virginia.

According to VSP, deputies from Cumberland County responded to Mount Airy Lane about a homicide on Saturday at Fabian’s home. Broyles was discovered in the home dead, but Fabian was not there and has not been seen since.  

Kinsley is being charged with first degree murder for Broyles’ death.  

Late Friday evening, Knisley is suspected of having stolen a third vehicle in North Carolina.  

Later that night, he was involved in a pursuit with Raleigh, N.C. Police. Raleigh Police took Knisley into custody on the murder charge awaiting extradition to Cumberland County, Va.  

Additional charges are pending. 

The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office is asking for anyone with information about the whereabouts of Amy Renee Fabian and/or either of the stolen vehicles to call 911 or (804)492-4120 or the Virginia State Police at #77.
