DNA Testing Done to Help Find UVA Student's Killer
The parents of a Virginia Tech student who disappeared after leaving a concert at UVa’s John Paul Jones Arena say DNA testing is being done on their daughter’s remains.
Twenty-year-old Morgan Harrington was last seen in October, hitchhiking on the Copley Road Railroad Bridge in Charlottesville after leaving a Metallica Concert. Her body was found in a pasture last month in Albemarle County. Gil Harrington, her mother, said that experts have enough tissue to perform toxicology and DNA tests and that’s happening now.
Her father, Dan Harrington, asked for people in the community to continue to help police find his daughter’s killer. He said a number of tips have been received and police are still conducting interviews. Recently the FBI put out a call for bicyclists who ride in the area where the remains were found to contact them.
