APPOMATTOX, Va. – On the eve of the third anniversary of Morgan Harrington’s disappearance, her case will be featured on the cable network television show, “America’s Most Wanted.” The segment will air at 10 p.m. Friday (October 12, 2012) on Lifetime.
Harrington disappeared Oct. 17, 2009, during a Metallica concert on the grounds of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. The remains of the 20-year-old Virginia Tech student were later discovered Jan. 26, 2010, in a field on an Albemarle County farm.
Later in 2010, the Harrington case was forensically linked to the attacker in a 2005 abduction and sexual assault of a young woman in Fairfax City. The Fairfax City victim was able to provide enough of
a description of her attacker for a composite sketch of the man.
The Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Appomattox Field Office, with the assistance of University of Virginia Police, Albemarle County Police, Charlottesville Police, Fairfax City Police, FBI and the Albemarle County Commonwealth’s Attorney, is still actively pursuing the investigation into Harrington’s disappearance and death.
