Gil Harrington’s thoughts from March 1, 2010
On March - 1 - 2010
March 1, 2010

I took some baby steps this week and started the breakdown of Morgan’s apartment at Virginia Tech.  It is a painful process to dismantle your child’s life, especially when I recall all the joy and expectation we had when we moved her in only 18 months ago.

Morgan’s apartment was great; comfortable, quirky and fun.  She was the girl who had everything: a great apartment, friends, intelligence and beauty.  The only thing she had in limited supply was life – what a short life.  What a tremendous waste.

Even thinking of that waste makes my breath choppy – I am only taking baby steps because it is so very difficult and also because I want to go slowly and savor this dismembering of the home Morgan had made.  You can learn a lot about someone when you see the environment they create and how they live in it.  It makes me happy and proud to see just how on top of things and how together Morgan’s way of living was.

I take my time; enjoy these glimpses of the person she was becoming.  Morgan was pretty special at the young age of 20, given the chance to actually grow up she was going to be absolutely phenomenal.  Why couldn’t it be?

Parents of Morgan Harrington make another trip to Charlottesville

It'll take several months for DNA tests to come back in the case of Morgan Harrington, the Virginia Tech student who was killed after she left a rock concert.

Meanwhile, Harrington's parents have made another trip to Charlottesville.

Her mom, Gil was wearing her daugher's bracelet.

"This bracelet has witnessed some unspeakable things. It conjures Morgan to me when I wear it," said Gil Harrington.

The bracelet one of the many reminders of their daughter.

Gil Harrington wore the bracelet as the Harrington's visited the bridge this week, where their daughter was last seen alive.

"I took out some of the old flowers, planted some new ones," said Dan Harrington.

"I've started cleaning out her apartment this week, and we're cleaning out the bridge for her," said Gil.

Gil said they are still looking for justice and she's confident her daughters killer or killers will be found.

Beyond the bubble
Katie McNally, Cavalier Daily Columnist

Life
March 2, 2010 0

As a U.Va. student, I have always felt fortunate to go to a large school that still has the close-knit feel of a much smaller one. When walking across Grounds, there is never a day when I don’t pass by people I know. They’re not even mere acquaintances, but rather, people who actually stop when they see me and genuinely want to know how I am doing. Even when I meet someone new, it is rare that we are not already connected in some way — we’ve had class together, they’re friends with my friend so and so, they live near me in Roanoke, etc. This creates a sense of community that I love but can perhaps be all too easy to become wrapped up in. Living as a student in Charlottesville, after all, I sometimes get the sense that we are living in our own sphere, separate and unconnected with the outside world. It is almost as if the University is surrounded by a giant, insulating bubble. I remember how during my first year, I was always so absorbed with what was going on at school that I was often way out of touch with the outside world. My mom would call me and bring up things that were headline news, and I would have no idea what she was talking about.

At the start of my second year, I got a lot better. I began keeping up with the news more and even started to remember there was actually a world outside of Charlottesville. Still, this world remained distant, and for a long time, the information that was broadcast into my apartment or that I read in the paper had that same distant feel to it. I saw people and places, but they were just words and pictures to me. I didn’t waste much time worrying about them because to me, the sad stories were just that — stories. I couldn’t see myself as connected in any way. A few months into the semester, though, that all changed.
When Morgan Harrington disappeared in October, I received a severe jolt of reality. She was more than just another picture that was broadcast into my living room. This was a girl that I knew really existed. She lived in my hometown; she went to my church. Our common background — a thread that frequently ties me to new acquaintances on Grounds — undeniably left me linked to this girl. Her tragedy shattered the invisible bubble that I used to feel around me at U.Va., not because it happened on Grounds, but because I knew we had something in common. I could not pretend that hers was just another far-off story.

Since Morgan’s disappearance, I have started to look at the news with a different eye, and this viewpoint is one that I encourage my fellow students to adopt. The names we see in print and the pictures on television are of real people and events. Just as we can so easily discover that we share things in common with new people we meet here, we will always share some link between us and the faces we see in the news. Take the recent events in Haiti, for example. Both the depiction of the earthquake in news stories and the sheer distance between that country and Grounds is enough to make that tragedy seem unreal to us. If we look a little bit harder, though, we can find the many readily apparent links between us and the Haitian people. There were many members of the U.Va. community in Haiti at the time, and we lost one of our most promising members in Stephanie Jean-Charles, a Batten student, College alumna and Haitian native.

With these ties in mind, students should remember that we are linked to the people we see in the news — not just in Haiti — but all around the globe. That invisible bubble we feel around Charlottesville is not a barrier against connections with the outside world. If we fail to look beyond its walls, then we risk becoming apathetic to all the news that doesn’t affect us here and now. But if we continue to search for connections beyond the bubble, then maybe we can begin to create a community with the wider world like the close-knit one at our school.

Morgan Harrington: an unsolved murder and the need for answers
March 2, 6:41 PMPrivate Investigations ExaminerAnn Flaherty


The Morgan Harrington missing person case became a homicide on  January 26, 2010, when Harrington’s remains were found on a farm outside of Charlottesville, VA.  As you recall Harrington was the Virginia Tech student who went missing during a Metallica Concert, which launched a worldwide effort to find her.  Ever since that dreaded day in January, when Morgan’s body was found, the need for answers has been a mission for law enforcement, Morgan’s family, and the community.  The Find Morgan website is still going strong, posting information and soliciting leads in the hopes of identifying some clues to the perpetrator of this horrible crime
 

Recently I was contacted by Bobby Weaver aka “Baad Bobby” who is an active participant in the Find Morgan forum.  Weaver reported to me new information that has surfaced pertaining to the possibility of a serial killer in the Charlottesville area. The “threads” pertaining to this angle of the investigation are informative and appear to have some merit.  Read what Bill Thomas wrote:

Folks, you have to do more research. My name is Bill Thomas; I am the older brother of Cathleen Thomas, one the first two victims, together with Rebecca Dowski, in the Colonial Parkway Murders which claimed 8 young people in the Williamsburg area from 1986-1989. There are a lot of unsolved murders within two hours of where Morgan Harrington was killed-- the Colonial Parkway Murders, the Route 29 Stalker case including Alicia Showalter-Reynolds (note where Morgan's body was found-- off Route 29), the Williams/Winans killings in the Shenandoah National Forest in 1996, the murder of the young Virginia Tech couple in August 2009 (very similar to Colonial Parkway) and now Morgan Harrington in October 2009. I am not even naming them all. Many of the Route 29 cases happened quite close to where Morgan was found.

It is time for the Governor Bob McDonnell and the Virginia State Police BCI, together with the FBI, to form a Task Force to solve all of these unsolved murders.

Bill Thomas
Brother of Cathleen Thomas

 

On January 7, 2010 the FBI/Norfolk issued a statement regarding the Colonial Parkway murders that Thomas spoke of and their efforts in re-examining all investigative reports and forensic evidence, from these crimes. The FBI press release can be found at:

http://norfolk.fbi.gov/pressrel/pressrel10/nf010710.htm

 If you have any information relevant to the Colonial Parkway murders that occurred during the 1980s, please e-mail the FBI at: Colonial_Parkway_Murders@ic.fbi.gov.

Another poster on the Find Morgan forum, known as “DebbieM” gives detailed information on some recent unsolved murders and missing persons in Virginia:

Sexual and Domestic Violence Services
Morgan Harrington


All of us at the U.Va. Women’s Center wish to express how moved we are by the courage of Morgan Harrington’s family, and the compassion with which our Charlottesville community responded to their call for support and help during Morgan’s disappearance. Some of us participated in the search, or were involved in the campaign for her recovery; we all hoped for a positive resolution. Our deep condolences go out to Morgan’s family and close friends at this difficult time. We hope that the joy that she brought you in her brief life will eventually bring relief to your heart. In her memory, we will recommit ourselves to our goal of working toward a world free of violence and oppression. We join others in working to shape a world in which women and children and men all can live lives full of possibility, joy, and fulfillment.

We are acutely aware of how Morgan’s disappearance and lonely death have left a pall of fear and helplessness over our community. In particular, women in Morgan’s age group, who see themselves in one way or another reflected in her life, feel unbalanced and worried that the University of Virginia is no longer the safe haven that it had been.

But U.Va. and Charlottesville have never been as safe as many believed. The fact that the person or persons who murdered Morgan may live among us only underscores that we cannot know the darkness that exists in the hearts of others, even our neighbors.
This does not mean that we should become suspicious of everyone around us, but it does point to the fact that trust must be earned, even by our peers. We were born with an instinct for survival, and it is vital that we pay attention to what our inner voice tells us: that it is definitely okay to be impolite if it means attending to our own safety, even if that means feeling embarrassed or inconveniencing someone or walking away from someone we like. Women, know that you have tremendous strength and resilience, and that you are capable of defending yourselves when threatened.

Ultimately, reinforcing safety means taking care of one another. Watch out for your friends and keep their safety at the forefront, especially if they are incapable of making sound decisions. We live in a culture that promotes individuality, but in truth we are part of a community. Harm against one person results in harm against all. Violence damages the threads that bind a community together: trust, compassion, respect, and responsibility to one another.

It would be nice to be able to offer a list of simple safety strategies and claim, “follow these and you will be safe.” But this would only promote a lie. Women have been resisting violence for centuries, and yet violence against us persists. Resistance is critical. Taking care of your friends is crucial. Protecting yourself by listening to that inner voice is deeply important. But even these practices do not always change the conditions that promote violence against women.
The responsibility to end gendered violence is not ours alone. We honor the men who stand up and speak up in the face of abusive sexism. May other men join you: Commit yourselves to speak out about violence against women. Pay attention to circumstances that foster violence and change them. Participate in the kind of social justice work that can lead to the dismantling of sexism, racism, homophobia, and other oppressions that allow people to view others as less than human. Sexist violence, whether committed by one university student against another in an apartment bedroom; by a predator against a vulnerable, lone woman; or by an army against the women of a community; are pieces of a continuum of violence that tears the world apart. The power to end gendered violence is largely in your hands.

Gil Harrington’s thoughts from March 3, 2010
March 3, 2010

Several of us from the OMNI team have started packing the 3,500 pounds of medical supplies we will take to Zambia, Africa on our April medical trip. Anticipating the trip has me both excited and anxious.  The separation from Dan is always painful, even more so this year because Morgan’s death has left both of us vulnerable and raw.  Despite the challenges that being apart will bring, I am more resolute than ever to make my journey to Africa.  I was not able to save my precious child, but know that I will be able save other children’s lives in Africa.  Every bobble headed baby with malaria we rehydrate and every burn we clean and dress negates some of the EVIL that is afloat in our world.

My pain will be les sharp knowing I have made a practical and direct difference in our patient’s and our students’ chances for survival. This brings me much comfort.  I keep trying to do my best to tip the scale in the direction of love.  I do believe love is greater than hate and love will win in the end if we do our part to help it along.
