Petition asks for surveillance video from night of Harrington disappearance
MEDIA GENERAL NEWS SERVICE
Published: June 17, 2010
An Internet petition has been started over surveillance video from the night that Morgan Harrington disappeared.

The website thepetitionsite.com lists the FindMorgan.com website, as well as "Friends & Concerned Citizens in the case of Morgan Harrington" as the petition's sponsors.

The petition calls for the University of Virginia and Virginia State Police to publicly release all surveillance video from the John Paul Jones Arena area from the night of Oct. 17, 2009. That is the night of the Metallica concert, where Harrington was last seen.

Previously, investigators have said that the surveillance video did not show Harrington.

Harrington's skeletal remains were found late January in an Albemarle County hayfield about 11 miles south of the arena.

Marking Eight Months Since Morgan Disappeared
Charlottesville, Va.
The parents of Morgan Harrington returned to Charlottesville Thursday to visit the memorial for their daughter.
The parents of Morgan Harrington returned to Charlottesville Thursday to visit the memorial for their daughter.

This is the eight-month anniversary of Morgan's disappearance.

The Virginia Tech student went missing after attending a Metallica concert at John Paul Jones Arena in October.

Her body was found several months later in an isolated field in Albemarle County.

Her parents, Dan and Gil Harrington, say they are frustrated more information about the investigation into Morgan's death isn't being released.

"They want to tie this thing up so tight, that when they do make an arrest, there's no wiggle room," says Gil. "It's just a balancing act that I also, as a mother and a parent, want him caught."

The knowledge that whoever took Morgan may still be out there scares the Harringtons, and they say they're concerned that there have been few safety changes in the area. Such changes might include adding more security cameras outside JPJ and more closely monitoring camera footage.

"We have this here as a daily reminder to people who are crossing the bridge that something significant occurred here, and the [University of Virginia], Charlottesville and Albemarle need to know we aren't going away," says Dan. "This will be here for the next 20 years until Morgan gets an arrest."

The Harringtons also say more needs to be done to alert the Charlottesville community that there is a killer on the loose.

Harringtons Frustrated With Investigation

Posted: Jun 17, 2010 3:03 PM CDT Updated: Jun 17, 2010 3:26 PM CDT
Strong words Thursday from the parents of Morgan Harrington. Dan and Gil Harrington say they are frustrated with the lack of information about the death of their daughter, and they are worried their daughter's killer will strike again.

Thursday the Harringtons made a trip back to the last place Morgan was seen alive, the Copeley Road Bridge. Publicly, this is the first time the Harringtons have come out swinging at investigators. They have frustrations. Some they would not share; some they would.

While they get weekly updates, the Harringtons admit there is not much information provided to them. That is because, they say, the Virginia State Police want to have an air-tight case once an arrest is made.

"They keep things very close to their chest and so the information they give us is really pretty limited," said Dan Harrington. "And obviously the information they give the public and the press is pretty non-existent."

The Harringtons are upset that it took police months to release the information concerning Morgan's Pantera t-shirt. It was found on 15th Street in November but the information was not released until five months later.

Virginia State Police denied a request for an on-camera interview about the case. A spokesperson did say the investigation is progressing, but there is still nothing new to report.

  Eight months: Harringtons mark anniversary with frustration, hope

On the eight-month anniversary of their daughter’s disappearance during an October 17 Metallica concert in Charlottesville, and nearly five months after her decomposed remains were found on a remote corner of an Albemarle County farm, Morgan Harrington’s parents, Dan and Gil Harrington, speak of their increasing frustration– not only with the lack of an arrest in the case– but with Virginia State Police and UVA administrators, whom both Harringtons criticize directly.

“They have not been on top of things when it comes to letting people know there’s a murderer here,” says Gil Harrington, standing on the Copeley Road bridge in front of Morgan’s memorial. A brand new banner hangs there with a message reminiscent of the billboard also erected this month on High Street: “Help us solve Morgan’s Homicide,” the banner reads, reminding passersby of the $150,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction. A collection of “Morgan rocks,” hand painted and etched stones created by those following the case around the world, now covers much of the concrete bridge wall.

Such kind gestures from strangers and from friends offer some comfort, says Gil. But true healing, both she and Dan say, can begin only after an arrest in the case.

Spokespeople for State Police and UVA had not immediately returned the Hook’s call at posting time.

The Harringtons say they are aware of people who feel their regular presence in the media is somehow unseemly and that the bridge memorial is macabre— “as if us drawing attention is a social gaffe,” says Gil, who insists she will remain undeterred from continuing her crusade to keep Morgan’s name in the public eye. “This place was a springboard for something hideous to happen,” she says, adding that if necessary, “We’ll be here for 20 years. We need an arrest.”
The Harringtons mention Joran van der Sloot, who allegedly killed a Peruvian woman on the fifth anniversary of Natalie Holloway’s disappearance and presumed death in Aruba, a crime that he is also widely suspected of committing.

“People don’t stop,” says Gil, who believes that whoever killed Morgan will kill again.

The Harringtons say they’re also “hungry for information” in the case and frustrated by the lack of it recently offered by police. They would like to see the video surveillance from the John Paul Jones Arena the night of Morgan’s disappearance, despite the fact police have assured them Morgan is not seen in any. One possible explanation for that seemingly inexplicable fact: “Our understanding,” says Dan, “is that the Arena doesn’t have as much surveillance as one might think.” Furthermore, he believes some of the cameras in the arena as well as traffic cameras in the area don’t record.

Mentioning a family beach trip they’ll be taking in two weeks without Morgan, and Morgan’s birthday on July 24, when she should have celebrated turning 21, Gil says time is not healing the family’s wounds. “It’s harder even then in the beginning,” she says. “We need an arrest.”

Anyone with information about the disappearance and death of Morgan Harrington should call the Virginia State Police tipline at 434-352-3467.

Morgan Harrington’s parents worry public becoming complacent

By TED STRONG
The Daily Progress
Published: June 18, 2010
The parents of Morgan D. Harrington, the woman killed sometime after leaving a Metallica concert at the University of Virginia in October, are worried that people are growing complacent.

“We keep coming to Charlottesville because we’re concerned for the community,“ said her mother, Gil Harrington. “Nothing else can happen to us. Our daughter has already been killed. But there are other young women there.“

The Virginia State Police continue to give the family weekly updates that are cautiously optimistic, Morgan Harrington’s father, Dan, said.

He said the state police have been upfront about the fact that they don’t have much to say during homicide investigations.

“This is not a group that gives much information out,“ he said.

As a result, he and his wife have been largely leading the charge for publicity, he said.

“It’s a dance between pushing attention and exhausting people’s short attention spans and trying to motivate the police and also not wanting to offend ... and also limited resources of time and energy that everyone has,“ Gil Harrington said.

She said that the parents feel a “moral imperative” to keep warning of the danger a killer could pose until there is an arrest.

They’ve also been speaking to groups, particularly about campus violence, and raising funds for a memorial scholarship in honor of their daughter and an educational building in Africa that’s to be named for her.

State police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said that tips from the public are still trickling in and that public awareness does help state police in the efforts to unravel what happened.

But she attributed the agency’s relative silence in recent months in part to the shift from a missing persons case to a homicide investigation, which happened after Harrington’s remains were found in an Albemarle County pasture in January. Police fear giving out details will make it harder to convict anyone they arrest, she said.

“Now we have a homicide investigation, so we do have to be more restricted and limited with the information,“ she said.

She added, “Unfortunately, that’s the nature of the beast when it comes to a homicide investigation.“

Gil Harrington’s thoughts from June 18th, 2010
  On June - 18 - 20102 COMMENTS

Dan and I went to Charlottesville yesterday to acknowledge the passing of 8 months since Morgan’s abduction/murder. We are getting so tired of beating this drum – trying to incite vigilance in the Charlottesville community where a psychopathic murder still walks.

This killer enjoys violence. He has worked his way up to the top of the predator food chain, killing humans for sport. The exhilaration and power he seeks through murder will not easily be satisfied by lesser crimes. If not caught, he will re-offend, hurt/kill someonelse’s daughter.

That belief makes me frantic for an arrest. Not a quest for justice, or closure, or even punishment, but so that some other sweet girl be spared his blood lust.

That’s a hell of a motivator. Even if we’re tired, even if people think we should get over it and go away, we persist. It is too late for Morgan, but I can’t give up on the next girl.

Gil Harrington’s thoughts from June 23rd, 2010
I am dancing around the realization that I have allowed the shadow of Morgan’s death to obscure much of the joy and reverence in my daily life. It is hard to dispel the darkness, but am I honoring our shiny girl with this pervasive gloom? I think not.

Every day we are alive is a gift (Just ask Morgan). Notice it, give thanks, plug back into the gratitude/positive circuit. Count the blessings as they present.

Because of the torrent of kindness and generosity we have received we remember that goodness will prevail and life is worth living. We reap such love from our community in the midst of pain that we believe and somehow continue on. Thanks to so many who carry us.

Gil Harrington’s thoughts from June 25th, 2010
  On June - 25 - 2010ADD COMMENTS

Morgan accomplished so much in her short life and had attained an impressive level of insight and maturity. Part of that growth occurred because Morgan had found her mentor/master teacher at VT, the elegant, talented Jane Lillian Vance.

Most of us need a mentor to inspire and guide us to order the chaotic thoughts and emotions of youth into a disciplined philosophy of living. I am so grateful that because of Ms. Vance, Morgan had experienced that quickening into maturity before she was murdered. It makes it somehow more acceptable, comforting, to me to think that Morgan had gotten what she needed and was “ready” to move on. We were not finished with her, but she was in a sense finished. A completed work, Morgan didn’t need any more lessons here.

Jane’s generosity to Morgan continues. The dedication of the film “A Gift for the Village” to the memory of Morgan Harrington is a huge tribute to our daughter; as is the transportation of Morgan’s essence on Jane’s current journey to Nepal.

It is staggering to see that Morgan’s spirit has gone as far as Zambia and now Nepal and beyond. This is a silver lining of sorts in the untimely death of a sacrificial lamb. The conceptual part of Morgan’s essence and her love persists, ever growing and disseminating, while her tangible, slaughtered, discarded body disintegrates into nothing.

Is this how love transcends and conquers all?
