Letter from Virginia Tech’s President on Morgan Harrington
VT News Release

Below is an open letter from Virginia Tech President Charles W. Steger regarding the loss of Morgan Harrington:

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

To the university community,

For more than three months, the entire Virginia Tech community, along with thousands upon thousands around the world, has held out hope for the safe return of Morgan Harrington. Sadly, today’s news from Albemarle County has put an end to that hope, and once again, we find our strength and resilience tested in the face of profound grief and loss.

Amidst this overwhelming sadness, perhaps the most important work we can do is to turn our efforts toward the support of Morgan’s family, her friends, and those in our community who may well struggle to cope with this terrible tragedy.
There can be little doubt that many here and elsewhere will be deeply affected by today’s sad news, and, as we have done in the past, I am confident that we will be sensitive and aware of both our own needs, and those of our colleagues and fellow students around us. Please turn to others and seek help if at all necessary, and encourage others to do likewise. Those who seek solace or desire counseling support may contact:

So sad...my thoughts and prayers are with Morgan's family, and all of those who loved her.

I stand with the girl, Natalee Holloway.

"I can look back over the past 10 years and there were no steps wasted, and there are no regrets,'' she said. "I did all I knew to do and I think that gives me greater peace now." "I've lived every parent's worst nightmare and I'm the parent that nobody wants to be," she said.

Report: Police believe remains are those of missing Va. Tech student
By Maria Glod
Washington Post Staff Writer

On Jan. 12, Gil Harrington posted this thought: "I remind myself that this is not in my hands and that the truth cannot be hidden forever -- it will out. I pray that the truth of this crime shows itself while Morgan is still alive. I have no interest in recovering a body. I would rather not know and always have some morsel of hope."

Morgan Harrington was close to her parents and visited their Roanoke house often. She also had a brother, Alex. Her family said Harrington had a close circle of friends. She loved to curl up with books. And she spent her high school summers working with children who have witnessed domestic violence.

Gil Harrington last saw her daughter the morning of the concert. Morgan Harrington tried on several outfits for the concert, with her mother offering fashion advice. They settled on a black Pantera T-shirt, black miniskirt, black tights and knee-high black boots. Harrington talked to her father by phone.

The 20-year-old bounded out of the house about noon, saying goodbye to her mother using the family's traditional greeting: "Two, four, one, Mama." Shorthand for: "I love you too much, forever, and one more time."


My thoughts and prayers go out to this family.   an angelic monkey

Most bodies are found Not by professional search teams but by average people who just happen upon the remains of the deceased individual..

Again, this has happened in this case.

I suppose the hope and prayer is that average people will happen upon all the missing people in our nation and around the world.

Thank God this man found Morgan.

“Red Hill local January 26th, 2010 | 2:26 pm
Assuming it was Morgan, no way could she have taken “shortcuts” to arrive on this farm. There are no shortcuts down 29 other than mountains.
I’m familiar with farm from 30+ years ago as a kid. This wasn’t a drive-by dumping as there’s really only one way into the farm if in fact the body was found behind the house. Whoever placed the body there is familiar with the farm, either as someone that lived on the property, worked there, visited the old homeplace for parties, or possibly even hunted there. They had to know it was “safe” to go there in the dark without drawing attention.
The big house in the pic was the sight of many big parties so lots of people would have been familiar with the isolation of the area. It is such a sad situation but if it is Morgan, at least the family will have some closure.”

“Red Hill local January 26th, 2010 | 3:33 pm
CVIllified - just giving my opinion being familiar with the place. Yes, it’s “remote” and right off 29,but you have to drive past a house to get to the location they appear to have found the body.
The house is rented, or was, by students and parties were held there frequently. I would think that someone being familiar with the place and knowing if they drove past the house in the pic towards the new house at the back of the property, no one in the first house would be concerned. If it’s Morgan she may have been more likely to get in a car with a younger, safe-looking person of similar age…maybe a student that had partied there. Things went too far, he panicked and ended up at the most remote place he knew. Just a theory.”

Thanks Lovin.
Oh no. I wonder if she went to a party there that night

I've waited and waited to hear word of this beautiful girl.

What an amazing life she had before her.

I hope to God that those who caused her death are found, prosecuted to the fullest, and eventually understand what they have taken from all of us.

There is a 20 year old violent sexual predator (rapist specifically) that lives where the main road intersects with the Anchorage Farm Road which is not actually identified on google. And he works at a plumbing company within a mile or so of the arena. Bet if he was raised in the area, he would know how to get where her body was found.
    I just saw this on WS, have no idea if this is true or not, but found it very interesting.

Harrington Case Becoming A Criminal Investigation.
Posted: Jan 26, 2010 8:48 PM Updated: Jan 26, 2010 8:48 PM

The Morgan Harrington case is shifting from a missing person's case to a criminal investigation. That's the word from investigators after a body believed to be that of Morgan was found on a small farm in Albemarle County Tuesday.

State police remain steadfast that this is a homicide investigation. They are asking how this body ended up in a remote farm field, and who is responsible for it being there.

Seven hours after investigators started searching the 700-acre southern Albemarle farm there was a somber announcement from state police.

Virginia State Police Superintendent Colonel Steve Flaherty said, "We make the following announcements with heavy hearts. We are fairly confident at this time that the remains are those of Morgan Dana Harrington." 

The owner of  Anchorage Farm, located off Route 29 South near Red Hill Road, found skeletal remains early Tuesday morning in a remote hay field. The farm is about seven miles south of where Morgan Harrington was last seen on October 17th leaving the Metallica concert at the John Paul Jones Arena.

Virginia State Police Lieutenant Joe Rader says tips never led them in to Tuesday's discovery. "Just because a body is found in a particular location doesn't mean that it would have been prudent to search that particular location at that time."   

Investigators would not pinpoint exactly what evidence they found at the scene to make them believe the body is Harrington's.

Colonel Flaherty says, "There are significant items of evidence that makes us fairly confident that scientific procedure will confirm the ID."

Morgan's parents, Dan and Gil, were called from their home in Roanoke to Charlottesville to help identify the remains as their daughters.

Now the state medical examiner in Richmond will examine the remains, using dental records and DNA to positively identify them.

Lt. Rader says, "This is an important step for us in this investigation. We now have something to look at to lead us in a new direction. We still proceed as if this is a homicide and most likely will be a homicide. We have a perpetrator or perpetrators at large that we certainly intend to catch and to prosecute."

Albemarle County Commonwealth's Attorney Denise Lunsford declined to comment on her office's involvement in the investigation. State Police are hoping this discovery may stir up some new tips in Harrington's disappearance. The tip line number is 434-352-3467.

A positive identification from the medical examiner could come as soon as Wednesday.
