According to VA § 8.01-345(b), jurors are selected by jurisdiction, so in this case propertyholders of the incorporated town.

So what happens if I start a town, establish necessary public bodies and court system, but everyone is friends with each other, and a vistor comes along and a local kills him, but there all friends, making it incredibly difficult to prosecute. Does the murderer most likely get away with it?

No.

And we do not entertain hypotheticals on this forum.

No. State and county law enforcement would and should take over and make it impossible for the perp to get away with it.
