Morgan Harrington

ABOUT THIS STORY |  Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington, 20, went missing from a Metallica concert in Charlottesville in October 2009. In January 2010, her remains were found on a Virginia farm. In July 2010, the Virginia State Police said she may have been abducted and killed by a man who sexually assaulted a woman in Fairfax City in 2005. The news, which came after a DNA link, was the first major break in the case -- but the 2005 case, like Harrington's, remains unsolved.
