BREAKING THIS MORNING. The following statement was released this morning at 607a by Albemarle County Sheriff Chip Harding, the man who pioneered the creation of Virginia's DNA Databank.

Hannah Graham – Another Unnecessary Victim

I have been advocating for several years that Virginia should expand our
DNA Databank to include all criminal convictions. Currently our databank mostly includes convicted felons. Every day we wait to expand the Virginia’s DNA Databank, we risk one of our loved ones falling victim to an attack from a violent predator that could have been prevented and a person wrongly convicted sits in prison.

New York State Governor Cuomo recently championed the initiative and it allowed his state to be the first to have an all criminal conviction databank. He pointed out that: In the 5 ½ years since petit larceny-the pettiest of crimes-has been a DNA eligible offense in N.Y. State , convicted offender samples have helped solve 965 crimes, including 51 murders, 222 sexual assaults, 177 robberies and 407 burglaries. DNA samples taken from individuals convicted of second-degree criminal trespass have been linked to 30 homicides, 110 sexual assaults and 121 burglaries, among other crimes.

On average, offenders linked to crimes in N.Y. State had three prior non-qualifying convictions before finally being convicted of an offense that required a DNA sample to be taken. My observation over my past 40 years in Virginia’s Justice System is the same. One can check the record of almost any Virginia serial predator and see the same –some examples are:

* Hannah Graham would have never met her accused abductor Jesse Matthew if his DNA had been collected when he was convicted of criminal trespass in Charlottesville in August of 2010. His DNA would have generated a “hit” at that time in the databank to the 2005 sexual assault in Fairfax. (Washington Post reports lab certificate on file in Fairfax Court) If convicted of that attack he most likely would have been in a jail cell at the time Hannah was walking on the Charlottesville Downtown mall.

* One of Charlottesville’s most notorious serial rapists in the past 30 years is Shannon Malnowski. Malnowski had a felony assault reduced to a misdemeanor in 1992 and a felony breaking and entering reduced to a trespass charge in 1994. In 1996 he raped a UVA student who was out jogging and in 1997 a 78 yr old professor’s wife in broad daylight in some bushes near the Culbreath Theater. In 2000 a student was raped on the Charlottesville High School track. Malnowski became a suspect and we obtained his DNA. It “hit” in all three cases. He was sentenced to life plus 50 years. If a DNA sample had been taken for the misdemeanors, he would have been caught after the first rape and the latter two rapes would have never occurred.

* If Nathan Washington had contributed a DNA profile when convicted of a misdemeanor in 1998, he never would have been the notorious “Charlottesville Serial Rapist” who raped at least 7 women over a 10 year period .His DNA would have “hit” from a rape in 1997 of a woman in Waynesboro. I would not have had to go into one of his victim’s homes and see blood spattered over three walls where he had beaten and raped her for hours. His 6 Charlottesville rapes would have never occurred.

* The famous “East Coast Rapist” who had 18 known victims. Half those victims would have been saved on Nov. 11, 2003 when, Aaron Thomas was convicted of a misdemeanor Assault and Battery. The 3 teenagers out on Halloween night in Dale City, VA would never have been assaulted.

I hope that all Virginian’s will consider contacting their representatives in the General Assembly and advocate for databank expansion. The time is now to allow DNA technology better protect our loved ones.

J.E. Chip Harding
Sheriff, Albemarle County, Virginia

Virginia college student's cause of death withheld
November 18, 2014

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The Virginia medical examiner's office says it is withholding the cause of death for a University of Virginia student.

The agency said Tuesday that the Charlottesville Police Department requested that 18-year-old Hannah Graham's cause or manner of death not be released yet.
 

The man Graham was last seen with, 32-year-old Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr., is charged with abduction with intent to defile Graham. Authorities said DNA evidence linked Matthew to a 2005 sexual assault case in Fairfax. DNA evidence in the Fairfax case has been linked to the 2009 disappearance and death of Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington.

Coy Barefoot As I said on CNN last week, we must all take a moment to recognize the courage of the Fairfax victim- after having been raped and nearly beaten to death, she voluntarily subjected herself to a rape kit test: she was scraped, swabbed, poked, prodded, and her entire body photographed. It's a grueling, invasive process that can take up to 4 hours. But she did it. Too often, victims are silenced by fear and shame. But that did not happen here. And the evidence she brought forward may in fact be the evidence that convicts a serial killer.

DNA expert will help attorneys for Jesse Matthew, suspect in Fairfax City sex assault

By Justin Jouvenal January 9 

A DNA expert will assist the defense of the man accused of abducting University of Virginia student Hannah Graham when he stands trial on unrelated charges in a 2005 sexual assault in Fairfax City.

A Fairfax County judge on Friday granted the request by attorneys for Jesse L. Matthew Jr., 32, but dismissed a second defense motion to place a gag order on both sides in the high-profile case. The judge also granted another motion to seal the case file.

Public Defender Dawn Butorac argued that the expert was necessary because the DNA evidence is crucial to the prosecution’s case. She said authorities had conducted 17 DNA tests on eight suspects during the investigation.

“The only piece of evidence the commonwealth has linking this defendant [to this case] is DNA scraped from underneath one fingernail of the defendant,” Butorac said in court.

After the hearing, Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Raymond F. Morrogh declined to comment on Butorac’s characterization of the evidence, saying it might jeopardize the defendant’s right to a fair trial.

 

Matthew was indicted on charges of attempted capital murder, abduction with intent to defile and object sexual penetration in the case in October. A subsequent DNA comparison between Matthew and material collected from beneath one of the victim’s fingernails concluded that there was just a “1 in greater than 7.2 billion” chance the DNA belonged to anyone besides Matthew.

The defense also argued that the case file should be sealed and a gag order placed on attorneys involved to avoid poisoning the jury pool, since the case is receiving intense media attention. The judge granted the first motion but rejected the second.

 

The defense motions come one day after Fairfax County Circuit Court Judge David Schell also denied a media request for cameras to be placed in the courtroom for the trial. He said state law forbids cameras in the courtroom during proceedings in sexual assault cases.

Authorities have also said that the Fairfax assault case has a forensic link to the case of college student Morgan Harrington, who disappeared and was found dead in 2009.

Prosecutor: No link between Jesse Matthew and Alexis Murphy
Posted: Jan 23, 2015 1:14 PM EST
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (WWBT) -

Nelson County prosecutors say DNA tests show no link between the suspect in the murder of Hannah Graham and the victim in a similar murder case, Alexis Murphy, reports NBC29.

The DNA tests found no link between Jesse Matthew and the Nelson County teen, according to a post on Twitter by Henry Graff of our sister station in Charlottesville.

Randy Taylor was convicted in Murphy's death, but in September his attorney asked prosecutors to compare DNA found in her car with Jesse Matthew's profile. Murphy's body has never been found and Taylor has maintained his innocence. Prosecutors have said they didn't think there was a credible connection between Matthew and Murphy.
