Police say a DNA connection has been found between the Morgan Harrington case and to a Fairfax woman who was kidnapped and raped in 2005.

This sketch is of a suspect wanted for a 2005 abduction and sexual assault in Fairfax, Virginia. Virginia State Police say forensic evidence has connected the crime in Fairfax to the homicide of Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington in Albemarle County.

Officials say they've found a link to the abduction and murder of Morgan Harrington, the Virginia Tech student who disappeared from a Metallica concert in Charlottesville more than a year ago.

Police say a DNA connection has been found between the Harrington case and to a Fairfax woman who was kidnapped and raped in 2005.

The Harrington family went to Fairfax Saturday to pass out sketches of a man now linked to the two cases.

Officials told ABC News that the DNA collected from a 25-year-old woman kidnapped and raped in Fairfax County is forensically connected to the Harrington case.

They warn that the man may have changed his appearance in the past five years, but they hope that someone can recognize him.
