Two years after remains found, Morgan Harrington’s killer still sought

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — There are still no substantive leads in the slaying of a Virginia Tech student last seen leaving a concert at the University of Virginia in 2009.

The parents of Morgan Harrington are marking the second anniversary of the discovery of their 20-year-old daughter’s remains in Albemarle County. She was last seen in October 2009 after leaving a Metallica show outside the John Paul Jones Arena.

Dan Harrington and his wife, Gil, returned to Charlottesville Thursday. He said that Virginia State Police have been consulting with the FBI on the case, according to the Daily Progress.

State police spokesman Corinne Geller said that the investigation remains active and ongoing. A reward of more than $150,000 is available for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the slaying.

Police have announced at least one break in the case, but it has not led to an arrest. In July 2010, they said the same man who abducted and killed Harrington may have sexually assaulted a woman in Fairfax City in 2005.
