Now that I have seen a picture of this Eric Howell, all I can say is, if he stopped and offered a car ride to Morgan, I could see that she would have accepted, he is her age and good looking, and appears harmless. I'm shocked at the charges against him  And I'm even more shocked that he lives so close to where Morgan was found.

Local forensic scientist offers insight into homicide investigations

While the discovery of Harrington's remains have ended the mystery of her location, it's just launched the investigation into who, how and why she was killed.

News7 spoke with a Radford University Professor about what happens when a missing person case turns into a homicide investigation.

Doctor Tod Burke explains the place where a body is found or dumped is key.

Every bit of forensic evidence speaks volumes for that victim.

We want to make sure everyone understands Doctor Burke is in NO way involved in the Harrington investigation.

The remote site where Morgan Harrington's remains were discovered is the only crime scene police have right now. It's from here - they'll have to piece together the rest of the story.

"Where the body is dumped doesn't necessarily mean where the crime occured," says RU Criminal Justice professor Tod Burke.

But Doctor Burke, explains, it tells plenty about the victim and the suspect.

"The dumping ground becomes critical because that probably means that the person is familiar with the area and because it's a remote area maybe they felt comfortable that their chances of getting caught are slim."

Weather, environment and even animals can affect the crime scene, but Burke says investigators typically start at the place where the body was found and work their way out, searching for any forensic evidence.

"Was there drag marks? That would tell you if the body had been moved prior to or if this was the exact location. You want to look for grass stains. Does it look like there's been a struggle?"

Although it's been three months since Harrington was seen alive, Burke reminds us that forensic evidence lasts a lifetime.

"There have been murders solved minutes after a crime. There have been murders solved 50, 60 years later."

Burke says solving this type of crime is typically not easy for investigators and they will likely rely on tips from the public.

What a beautiful young girl she was with her whole life ahead of her. This  is tragic , my prayers are with the family for their healing.  I did a search on perps in the area and for some starnge reason this guy sticks out. HE looks like the type you would see at a concert lurking. Just intuition. I may be wrong and this is just my opinion. I will try to post a link with a pic.

Harringtons brace for investigation in daughter’s death
With yesterday's confirmation that remains discovered in a hayfield are those of missing student Morgan D. Harrington, her parents found closure, they said, as they steeled themselves for the investigation into her death.

Harrington's parents addressed the media at the Copeley Road railroad bridge -- the last place their daughter has been reported alive -- hours after police announced that dental records provided positive identification.

"For the first time in 101 days, I am not thinking every minute, 'What is he doing to my daughter now?'" Gil Harrington said.

She said she thinks her daughter was dead by the end of the Oct. 17 Metallica concert from which she went missing. Police have said the case is most likely a homicide.

A farmer found the skeletal remains of the Virginia Tech student Tuesday as he inspected a fence line in a remote hayfield.

"It's not something you could drive up to or park or walk alongside," Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said of the site.

Dan Harrington said he thinks that means someone local knows about his daughter's death.

"My understanding is that this is not a random place that someone came across accidentally," he said.

Police don't have any suspects, Geller said.

Police have said they believe Harrington, 20, left the John Paul Jones Arena at the University of Virginia during the concert and was unable to get back inside.
Police believe, based on tips, that she was on the Copeley Road railroad bridge at about 9:30, trying to hitchhike.

"At this point, the trail still goes cold there at 9:30 p.m.," Geller said.

Even as the Harringtons spoke on the bridge, investigators were combing the farm where she was found, looking for clues to how her remains came to be there.

Geller said officers used a grid search to look for forensic evidence. They examined the area where the body was found and walked the farm, she said.

A new spate of tips began coming in Tuesday night, after police announced the preliminary identification of the body as Harrington's, Geller said.

In the meantime, the Harringtons are waiting to receive their daughter's remains, which likely won't be released until next week, Dan Harrington said.

Morgan Harrington likely died quickly
Police think Morgan died the night she disappeared. Her parents believe the perpetrator is local to Charlottesville. The investigation is focusing on the cause and time of her death.

By Rex Bowman | rex.bowman@roanoke.com | 777-3523
Thursday, January 28, 2010
CHARLOTTESVILLE  -- For 101 days the parents of Morgan Harrington agonized over the unknown, tormented by thoughts of the "unspeakable things" a predator might be visiting upon their young, missing daughter. Wednesday, the day after her skeletal remains were found in a hayfield, Dan and Gil Harrington said their minds are, at last, at peace.

The Roanoke County couple now believe their daughter was killed the night she disappeared.

And for the first time since Morgan's disappearance on Oct. 17, said Gil Harrington, she is not imagining her daughter as a captive a frightened captive brutalized by a predator, day after day.

"I'm not thinking every minute, 'What is he doing to my daughter right now? What is she having to endure right now?' "

I know most of the posting is going on over at BOC. I read there but rarely post. Easy to get lost there.

I am so angry today and wanted to get this off my chest.

How dare this miserable son of a bitch rob Morgan of her life. For what? A cheap thrill? His own personal satisfaction? Because he is a low-life loser who doesn't have a way with the ladies? He wanted to feel powerful? Wanted to feel like a "man"? WHY? What gave him the right?

He should be AFRAID. He should fear what is coming to him. It is coming. His lies will not save him now. 

But then again nothing could ever even begin to make this right. It doesn't balance out no matter what. Morgan is gone. Even if he dies a horrible death, it's still not right. Even if he spends his life in prison, it's still not right. I suppose nothing in THIS WORLD will balance it out. Perhaps in the next it will be made right.

I am in no way blaming the victim. So, please don't take this in that way. I will say from personal experiences as a teen -- alcohol is trouble. You will find yourself in situations and with people you would never have found yourself with sober. Some men WILL take advantage of you if given the chance. Trust me, I know. I have been there. And I have observed them in bars watching and waiting for their victim, the girl who is too drunk to stand, the girl who goes off by herself. Yes, these men exist in any and every place in the world. Some of them will rape you or worse. Young women need to know this before they drink. And if you choose to drink, you need to make sure you have real friends around you -- the kind who will not leave you somewhere or allow you to wander off intoxicated. My opinion -- again based on MY experience not this case.

I totally agree with goodnmad regarding the alcohol and girls.  That is so true.

Thanks for explaining what BG is, I have been trying to figure that out myself.  I read at BOC as well, but do not post much and it is easy to get "lost"   lol 

I have another question, do I understand that the general consensus is that this is an ex boyfriend or something.  I am a bit confused as to who the poi is.
