Fairfax assault suspect linked to Va. Tech student's murder

July 1, 2010
By Rex Bowman

State investigators trying to solve the murder of Roanoke County woman Morgan Harrington said today they have linked her case to the 2005 unsolved abduction and assault of another woman in Fairfax County.

In a written statement, Virginia State Police said: "In September 2005, a Fairfax woman was abducted and sexually assaulted and City of Fairfax Police detectives were able to create a composite sketch based on the victim’s description of the suspect. However, the suspect may have changed his appearance over the course of the past five years."

Police said they linked the case to Harrington’s murder through forensic evidence.

According to a Sept. 27, 2005 article in the Washington Post, the Fairfax case involved a 26-year-old woman who was sexually assaulted as she walked home from a nearby grocery store.

The woman told police she was walking in the 3700 block of Jermantown Road after she left the store about 10 p.m. when a man grabbed her, dragged her to a wooded area and assaulted her, police said at the time.

The man fled when a passerby came upon the attack, according to the newspaper account.

Harrington, a 20-year-old Virginia Tech student, disappeared from a Metallica concert in Charlottesville on Oct. 17. Her body was found Jan. 26 in a remote field of an Albemarle County farm, about 10 miles south of the arena where the concert was held.

Virginia State Police have said they suspect Harrington’s killer is someone intimately familiar with the Anchorage Farm area where her body found.

July 1, 2010

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Virginia State Police say there is a forensic connection between Morgan Harrington's disappearance and death and an unsolved 2005 sexual assault case out of the City of Fairfax.

Investigators are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect in the Fairfax case based on a composite sketch of the man. Police sent out a composite drawing of the attacker in the 2005 Fairfax case, in which a woman was sexually assaulted. The sketch was put together shortly after the crime based on the account of the victim.

"We're at a stage when we felt, at this point, let's go public. Let's see if anyone in the Charlottesville area or even in Northern Virginia may recognize this individual," Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said.

However, police warn that the suspect may have changed his appearance over the course of the past five years. According to the wanted poster, the suspect in the 2005 case is a black male between 25 and 35 years old, about 6 feet tall and with a medium build.

Harrington, 20, of Roanoke, Va., went missing from the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville during a Metallica concert on the night of Oct. 17, 2009. Her remains were discovered Jan. 26, 2010, on Anchorage Farm in southern Albemarle County, just south of Charlottesville. Her death is being investigated as a homicide.

David Bass, the owner of Anchorage Farm, said he does not recognize the person depicted in the sketch. Police say that the location where her body was found is still critical to the investigation. They say that Harrington's killer had to be familiar with the area, but it is unclear where the suspect resides.

Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Appomattox Field Office, University of Virginia Police, Albemarle County Police and the Charlottesville Police are working with the City of Fairfax Police in regards to both criminal incidents.

Those with information about the man featured in the wanted poster may contact City of Fairfax Police Detective Mike Boone at (703) 385-7959.

Anyone wishing to provide information in the Morgan Harrington case is encouraged to call the Jefferson Area Crime Stoppers at (434) 977-4000 or Virginia State Police at (434) 352-3467 or email State Police at bci-appomattox@vsp.virginia.gov. A reward of $150,041 is still available for anyone with information that leads to a resolution of the Harrington crime.

July 1, 2010

The parents of Morgan Harrington were briefed by Virginia State Police this afternoon and described their emotions on what has been the most significant day in this murder investigation.

It's been a long eight months for Dan and Gil Harrington. They have spent a lot of time traveling to keep their daughter's memory alive.

The Harringtons have made several trips to Charlottesville to make sure their daughter's death stayed in the public eye. The Harringtons spent Thursday in their Roanoke County home.

State Police investigators handling the investigation briefed the family about the new developments. The Harringtons said they have been looking for any piece of hard evidence. Now, they have renewed hope of solving the case.

"There's a killer among us. Now, there's a face to it, which makes me very angry when I see it, because it's concrete," Dan Harrington said. "Before, it was abstraction, but now there's a person, there's actually a face."

"When I first heard they had a DNA link to a previous crime, It's hard to say you're happy about such an obscene thing," Gil Harrington said. "We were, in fact, happy because the likelihood of getting an arrest and a conviction increased astronomically."

Now, the Harringtons said they are much more confident there will be an eventual conviction in the case.

State Police Asking For Public's Help In Identifying Assault Suspect Linked To Morgan Harrington Homicide

July 1, 2010

Charlottesville, Va. – State and local investigators are pursuing a forensic connection between the disappearance and death of Virginia Tech student, Morgan Harrington, and an unsolved 2005 abduction and sexual assault in the City of Fairfax. Investigators are asking for the public's help in identifying the suspect in the Fairfax case based on a composite sketch of the man.

Forensic evidence recovered during the course of the Harrington investigation has confirmed the link to the City of Fairfax assault. In September 2005, a Fairfax woman was abducted and sexually assaulted and City of Fairfax Police detectives were able to create a composite sketch based on the victim's description of the suspect. However, the suspect may have changed his appearance over the course of the past five years.

Harrington, 20, of Roanoke, Va., went missing from the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville during a Metallica concert on the night of Oct. 17, 2009. Her remains were discovered Jan. 26, 2010, by the landowner of Anchorage Farm in southern Albemarle County. The skeletal remains were located in a field on the 700-acre property. Morgan Harrington's death is being investigated as a homicide.

Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation's Appomattox Field Office, University of Virginia Police, Albemarle County Police, and the Charlottesville Police are working with the City of Fairfax Police in regards to both criminal incidents.

Police link Virginia student slaying, 2005 sex assault
By the CNN Wire Staff
July 1, 2010 9:05 p.m. EDT

(CNN) -- Forensic evidence links the cases of a University of Virginia student believed slain in October and the kidnapping and sexual assault of another woman four years earlier, state police announced Thursday.

The surviving victim was able to provide a description of her attacker to police, and detectives have begun circulating anew a sketch developed from her recollection. Investigators have asked the public to help find the suspect in that abduction, which took place in 2005 in Fairfax, Virginia, outside Washington.

The announcement is a new turn in the 2009 killing of Morgan Harrington, a 20-year-old student at the University of Virginia, and her parents told HLN's "Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell" that they had mixed emotions about the news.

"It's hard to say that you're happy about an obscenity," her mother, Gil Harrington, said Thursday night. "But in effect, we were happy that we were one step closer to finding and apprehending this vicious predator and getting him off the streets."

Harrington's father, Roanoke psychiatrist Dr. Dan Harrington, said the emergence of a suspect's sketch has made him angry, "maybe for the first time."

"Obviously, we know Morgan was murdered, but it was an abstraction," he said. "There was no one that you could put a face to. But today, there's the concrete picture of this man, and it seems to me that for the first time, anger became way more of a prominent emotion for me."

Harrington disappeared October 17 after a rock concert at the college's Charlottesville campus, and her skeletal remains were found by a nearby farmer in January.

Virginia state police did not disclose details of the forensic evidence that links her case to the attack in Fairfax, about 80 miles away. But the Washington Post, citing unnamed sources, said the cases are linked by a DNA match.

Police warn that because the sketch is five years old, the person it depicts may have changed his appearance.

Gil Harrington, a nurse, said her daughter's case shows that "the social framework that views women as prey" needs to be changed.

"It is something that I think you have to start from young ages with children, that you're training them not to beat up and not to act out," she said. "But you would think in 2010 that we would be working on issues of cherishing and upholding each other in relationships rather than can we just stop hurting each other. But unfortunately, that's where we're stuck. We have to disallow it."

Is it just me..or does anyone else think this guy looks very neat and professional in that sketch?

A neatly trimmed beard and mustache, neatly trimmed hair...he just looks like someone that takes care of his appearance..not some street thug.

Could he be a professional in LE, fireman, EMS or even college professor?

RICHMOND, Va. - Virginia State Police say there could be a big break in the murder of a Virginia Tech student. Morgan Harrington disappeared last October in Charlottesville after attending a Metallica concert. Her remains were found in late January on a remote farm in Albemarle County.

Investigators say there is a forensic link from that crime to an unsolved sexual assault and abduction in Fairfax City back in September of 2005.

In that case, police say a 26-year-old woman walking home from the grocery store was grabbed from behind as she entered a townhouse community on Rock Garden Drive. The man carried her to a park near a swimming pool. Police say he sexually and physically assaulted her.

That woman survived and gave police a description of her attacker. Now they are hoping someone will recognize that suspect from the sketch.
