Skeletal remains of what is believed to be Morgan Dana Harrington, the 20-year-old Virgina Tech student who went missing following a Metallica concert in Charlottesville, Virginia on October 17, 2009, have been found on a Virginia farm 10 miles from the concert venue.
The remains reportedly have blond hair and were clad in black clothing. Missing-person fliers for Harrington described her as blond and said she was wearing a black T-shirt with the word "Pantera" on it, a black miniskirt, black tights and black boots when she disappeared.
At a news conference, authorities said they were confident the remains are those of Harrington. "There were significant items and evidence" found to support the identification, Virginia State Police Superintendent Steve Flaherty said, although he would not elaborate. Police did not give any information about how she died. The body was being taken to Richmond for an autopsy.
The Harrington family offered a $100,000 reward for her return or information leading to the arrest of anyone involved in her disappearance, to which Metallica added another $50,000.
Metallica commented on the latest turn of events:
"Our most sincere condolences go out to the family and friends of Morgan Dana Harrington, the 20 year old Virginia Tech student who was last seen while attending our concert at the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville, VA. Sadly, Morgan's body was found yesterday ending her family's three month vigil hoping and praying for her safe return. Mere words cannot express the anguish and grief that we know her parents Dan and Gil are feeling, and our thoughts are with them.
"If you have any information at all about Morgan's death, please contact the Virginia State Police at (434) 352-3425 or the UVA Police at (434) 352-3467 or firstname.lastname@example.org."
