Charged in Graham & Fairfax cases, will Jesse Matthew now be charged in Harrington case?

ABC 7 WJLA News - The Associated Press - Tue, 21 Oct 2014 17:58:45 EST

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - A hospital worker has been charged in the September abduction of a University of Virginia student and a 2005 rape that state police say has a forensic link to the five-year-old slaying of a Virginia Tech student.

Does that mean Jesse L. Matthew Jr. will now face charges in the 2009 killing of Morgan Harrington?

Harrington's mother said Tuesday she hasn't heard from Virginia State Police investigators on their next step in her daughter's case.

"I am always the last to find out about something," Gil Harrington said in an interview.

Harrington contrasted the stealthy state police approach to the tack taken by Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo, who has been the public face in the search for Hannah Graham, the U.Va. student who disappeared Sept. 13.

The 18-year-old sophomore from northern Virginia went missing after she ended up alone on Charlottesville's Downtown Mall after socializing earlier in the evening with friends. Matthew, 32, was the last person publicly seen with Graham.

Remains found within miles of where Harrington's remains were found were discovered on Saturday. The remains, also found in the wooded countryside outside of Charlottesville, have not been identified but police have notified Graham's parents.

Gil Harrington, who with her husband, Dan, has worked to keep her daughter's unsolved case in the public eye, said she has not been told by state police whether they will seek charges against Matthew.

"Virginia State Police are really a very closed shop," Harrington said. "Their culture and their approach is really different from Chief Longo. He's really collaborative in the way he utilizes and engages with the media."

A state police spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Criminal procedure experts said charges, if they are brought against Matthew in Harrington's slaying, will likely emerge from a grand jury.

"The evidence is mounting, so they'll just take the evidence to the grand jury," said Ronald Bacisal, a University of Richmond professor of criminal law. "He's already under arrest."

Albemarle County Commonwealth's Attorney Denise Lunsford, when asked Tuesday if she would seek a special grand jury to hear possible evidence against Matthew, responded: "I'm not commenting on the Matthew case."

Monday, Matthew was charged with a 2005 sexual assault in Fairfax County.

At a press conference, Fairfax County Commonwealth's Attorney Ray Morrogh was asked about the passage of time between Monday's indictment and the earlier established forensic link between the Graham case, the Fairfax rape and Matthew. Any delay, he said, was attributable to "just being thorough."

"It took a little while because we were investigating the crime," he said.

The same holds true in the Graham case, provided a medical examiner identifies the remains found Saturday as Graham's.

"What's happening now is they're collecting evidence from the crime scene," said Brian Moran, Virginia's secretary of public safety and homeland security "There's still a great deal of investigation going on."

Matthew's attorney, James L. Camblos III, said Tuesday he will not be representing Matthew in the Fairfax rape and abduction case. He also declined to say whether he told his client that the remains found Saturday are suspected of being Graham's.

Morrogh said he will seek a bench warrant this week requesting that Matthew be brought to Fairfax for an initial appearance. No court date has been set.

Matthew, who is jailed in the Charlottesville area, has his first court date in the Graham case scheduled for early December.

Waiting game continues ahead of autopsy results in Hannah Graham investigation

Virginia WJLA - The Associated Press - Tue, 21 Oct 2014 13:00:49 EST

FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - Authorities have brought additional charges against the man accused of abducting an 18-year-old college student in Virginia: the abduction, rape and attempted capital murder of a 26-year-old woman in a Washington, D.C. suburb.

A Circuit Court grand jury in Fairfax County on Monday handed up the new indictment against Jesse L. Matthew Jr., 32, who is already in custody in the case of Hannah Graham, a University of Virginia sophomore who disappeared Sept. 13.

At a news conference Monday, Fairfax County Commonwealth's Attorney Ray Morrogh declined to discuss any details of the case, but did say the victim is cooperating. Police had previously said that on Sept. 24, 2005, a 26-year-old woman was walking home from the grocery store about 10 p.m. on a Saturday night, when her assailant grabbed her from behind, dragged her into a wooded area behind some townhomes, and sexually assaulted her.

The man fled the area when he was startled by a passerby, police said.

Morrogh said he will seek a bench warrant later this week requesting that Matthew be brought to Fairfax for an initial appearance, and he expected that to be granted. But no court date has been set. Morrogh said he was not sure whether Matthew would be tried first in Charlottesville or in Fairfax.

"I'm willing to go first, last or whenever," Morrogh said.

Matthew's attorney has repeatedly refused to discuss his client, and a message on his law office telephone on Monday said he was not taking questions in the case.

After an extensive search for Graham, law enforcement officials found human remains on Saturday in a heavily wooded area that is dotted with farms, about 12 miles southwest of the Charlottesville campus of U.Va. They continued to search the area Monday for additional evidence or clues.

The remains were taken to the Virginia Medical Examiner's office in Richmond to be identified. A spokesman in the office could not say Monday when the results of the forensic examination would be completed.

Police let Graham's parents know about the discovery before they publicly released the information.

One of the officials who made the discovery said the remains were found just as he and his team were about to move on to another site.

"We were on our way back to our vehicle and I just decided to keep going," Sgt. Dale Terry of the Chesterfield County Sheriff's Department told WRIC TV. "So we swept a different area and luckily we just came upon what we came upon. ... Divine intervention is the only thing I can think of."

The remains were discovered roughly 6 miles from where the body of 20-year-old Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington was found after she vanished in 2009. Police have said forensic evidence connects Matthew to Harrington's killing, which in turn is linked by DNA to the 2005 sexual assault in northern Virginia.

In addition to the new attempted capital murder and rape charges, Matthew has been charged with abduction with intent to defile Graham. He is being held in the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail. He has not been charged in the Harrington killing.

As for the link between the Graham case and the Fairfax case, Morrogh would only say that "indirectly, that case was of value to the department in conducting its investigation" but declined further comment.

Fairfax City Police Chief Carl Pardiny credited his investigators with their work on the case, going back to 2005.

"We never gave up, not over nine years," Pardiny said.

Graham hasn't been seen since after a night out with friends. She had met friends at a restaurant for dinner before stopping by two off-campus parties. She left the second party alone and eventually texted a friend saying she was lost, authorities said.

In surveillance video, she can be seen walking unsteadily and even running at times, past a pub and a service station and then onto a seven-block strip of bars, restaurants and shops.

Weak tornadoes last week confirmed by National Weather Service

Weather DC WJLA 7 - Steve Rudin - Mon, 20 Oct 2014 20:30:00 EST

The National Weather Service confirmed Monday an EF-0 tornado touched down in eastern Fairfax County and the City of Alexandria. The storm hit during the noontime hour on October 15th. Estimated wind speeds are said to have been between 55 and 60 miles per hour. Skipping a path about one and one-half miles long, it first touched ground near Belle Haven in eastern Fairfax County and quickly moved north into the City of Alexandria. Within three minutes, rotation was no longer detected.

Damage was limited to a few downed trees and snapped limbs. No injuries were reported.

Another tornado was confirmed near Savage, Maryland in eastern Howard County. This storm also had winds clocked around 60 miles per hours and uprooted a large tree.

Some scrutiny had been placed on the National Weather Service for issuing a Tornado Warning that included a large and heavily populated area in the middle of the workday. The warned areas included parts of Fairfax, Arlington and Prince Georges counties along with Alexandria and the District.

Comstock-Foust congressional race heats up over key issues

ABC 7 WJLA Politics - The Associated Press - Mon, 20 Oct 2014 18:37:44 EST

LEESBURG, Va. (AP) - Here are the issues of significance in Virginia's 10th District U.S. House race between Democrat John Foust and Republican Barbara Comstock.

1. HEALTH CARE

Comstock says she would vote to "repeal and replace" the national Affordable Care Act. Foust has said he would not repeal the legislation, which he calls "a step toward what we need to accomplish in health care." He has said he supports improvements to the legislation.

2. TAXES and BUDGET

Comstock has pledged not to raise taxes, and signed a pledge stating so with anti-tax activist Grover Norquist. Foust has touted his record on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in balancing budgets, which has relied at times on raising property tax rates.

3. TRANSPORTATION

Comstock, as a Virginia state delegate, opposed a bipartisan transportation plan from Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell to increase transportation funding, which relied in part on raising taxes. Foust said he supported the legislation, which passed.

4. ABORTION

Comstock is anti-abortion, but says the Foust campaign misrepresents her position in ads that say she would outlaw abortion even in cases of rape and incest. Comstock's campaign says she supports congressional legislation that has limited abortion funding for cases involving rape, incest, and when the mother's life is in danger.

Foust, who is pro-abortion rights, says his campaign accurately characterizes Comstock's position. He says Comstock opposes the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision and supports "personhood" legislation in Virginia that would confer the full rights of a person to an embryo from the moment of fertilization.

5. MINIMUM WAGE

Comstock says increasing the minimum wage would result in the loss of 500,000 jobs nationally. Foust supports an increase.

Foust-Comstock House race to replace Wolf closely watched in Virginia and nationwide

ABC 7 WJLA News - The Associated Press - Sat, 18 Oct 2014 12:47:29 EST

McLEAN, Va. (AP) - Yes, it's an open seat in a swing district. But a big reason the race for Virginia's 10th Congressional District is drawing attention beyond its borders is a candidate with a lightning-rod past who has a special knack for getting under Democrats' skin and has been labeled a ":professional Clinton hater.":

Republican Barbara Comstock may not be well known to the average voter, but to political observers she carries status far beyond her short career in elected office as a three-term state delegate. She made her name in political circles in opposition research, digging up dirt on Bill and Hillary Clinton and Al Gore as a Capitol Hill staffer. Her work included aggressive investigations of the Clintons under GOP House committee chairman Dan Burton, and later for the Republican National Committee.

Her opponent, John Foust, a two-term Democrat on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, has made an issue of her past, calling her a partisan political warrior, the opposite of what is needed in Washington in an age when partisan sniping has led to constant gridlock.

":It's a part of the process that attracts some of the most extreme partisan members,": Foust said of Comstock's work as an opposition researcher. He described her efforts as a chief investigator for Burton as ":some of the most ugly things in American history, trying to demonize and personally destroy the president and his family and the people around him, and she led that effort.":

In fundraising emails, former Clinton political aide Paul Begala called her a ":professional Clinton hater": and said ":she will no doubt practice the same politics of personal destruction she and her ilk practiced in the Clinton days": if she wins.

Comstock points to her record in the Virginia General Assembly, where she says she focused on bread-and-butter issues such as promoting telework, combatting human trafficking and pushing legislation to support northern Virginia's technology and business communities.

":They're stuck in the '90s,": Comstock said in an interview about her critics.

Nationally, Republicans have suggested she is the kind of candidate who can help the GOP appeal to women. Gender issues have been a big part of the campaign. Comstock's campaign has attacked Foust for a remark that he doesn't think Comstock has ever held ":a real job,": portraying it as sexist.

Comstock pointed to her time as a working mother on Capitol Hill and later as a spokeswoman for the Justice Department as the kind of jobs that many voters in the 10th District hold.

":It shows his lack of understanding of the workforce in the area, and it's insulting and demeaning,": she said. ":It stems from his lack of ability to talk about anything he's done. He's spent his entire campaign attacking me personally.":

Foust acknowledged ":a poor choice of words,": but says his comments were taken out of context, and that he was speaking in the context of job creation.

":I think you can have real jobs in the political world. She has had some high-level jobs that were clearly real jobs,": he said in an interview.

Given Comstock's history as a Republican partisan, eyebrows were raised during her primary campaign when it came out that she had voted in the Democratic primary in 2008 - for Obama, no less.

Comstock says it was part of a strategy to boost Obama into the general election, where she felt he would be a weaker nominee than Hillary Clinton.

":I was wrong,": she said.

Comstock said she sees nothing wrong with crossing party lines to cast a strategic vote in the other party's primary, which is allowed under Virginia law.

":People do it all the time,": she said.

Bill Shendow, a recently retired political science professor at Shenandoah University in Winchester, said Foust's campaign has committed ground-game resources to the district that have been absent in previous Democratic campaigns. Yet he said a Foust victory would still be an upset, given that the district has sent a Republican to the House for the last 30 years in Frank Wolf, who is retiring and in recent years has been increasingly seen as a maverick within in his party.

The seat, in fact, hasn't been open since it was created in 1952. The district stretches through northern Virginia from inside the Capital Beltway out to the Shenandoah Valley.

President Barack Obama carried the district by 3 percentage points in 2008, and Republican Mitt Romney won it by a point in 2012.

Surviving the 'Murdered Child's Club'

WDBJ 7 National News - - Sat, 18 Oct 2014 15:17:54 GMT

Five years ago, Dan and Gil Harrington became members of a club they never wanted to join and one they can never quit.

The dues are more than steep. They are crushing. And yet, membership in this club grows.

The Harringtons belong to the Murdered Child's Club.

That's how they describe it, anyway. Their membership began Oct. 17, 2009, when their daughter, Morgan Dana Harrington, went missing in Charlottesville, Virginia, where she was attending a rock concert on the University of Virginia campus.

One-hundred-and-one excruciating days later, the 20-year-old's skeletal remains were discovered 10 miles from the concert arena, on a hillside of a sprawling farm in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Her death was ruled a homicide.

With each passing year, the Harringtons have had to work harder and harder to stay connected to their daughter. They keep her cell number active so they can call it and hear her voicemail message. They also have been mindful to keep grief from becoming their undoing, both as individuals and as a couple.

On Friday, the Harringtons marked the fifth anniversary of their daughter's murder the same way they have marked four others --- with a ceremony on Charlottesville's Copeley Road Bridge, the last place witnesses reported seeing Morgan alive. The family has used these annual milestones to try to generate new information on who may have killed Morgan and to warn young women in Charlottesville to be vigilant.

This anniversary brings with it new hope that Morgan's case will be solved.

Ironically, and many fear tragically, the disappearance almost five weeks ago of another young woman, University of Virginia student Hannah Graham, has offered the most promising lead yet. On Sept. 24, a patient technician at the University of Virginia Medical Center was charged with abducting Graham with an intent to defile. Police say DNA now links that man, Jesse L. Matthew Jr., 32, to Morgan's death. No charges in that case have been filed. In a statement, Matthew's lawyer, James L. Camblos III, said he has "not been provided with any evidence that links (Matthew) to either" the Graham or Harrington cases.

Although the developments may turn out to be the break the Harringtons have longed for, it is not one they are celebrating. "Our feeling is not joy," Morgan's mother says. "There is another missing girl, and we have tried really hard to prevent that."

The months that Morgan was missing, her mom says, were far worse than the years since her death. "It is debilitating to try to swing on the pendulum between hope and despair. You don't want to just sit in mourning because you don't want to quit on your kid. It really is easier to know that your child is dead. It is primitive. Once you have the body, you know that nobody is going to hurt them again."

Easier, maybe, but far from easy. The Murdered Child's Club comes with a lifetime membership. "Unless you belong to this club," Dan Harrington says, "you simply have no clue what it's like."

Staying connected

In the family room of their two-story brick home in Roanoke County, two hours southwest of Charlottesville, Dan Harrington works on a laptop marked with evidence tape. Sitting nearby is Kirby, Morgan's silky terrier.

Dan, 62, bought Morgan the computer to take to Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, where she was studying to be a teacher. Police returned the laptop after combing it for possible leads. The evidence tape has proved too stubborn to remove.

"I use it all the time," he says of his daughter's computer. It contains her coursework, pictures and thousands of iTunes downloads, featuring artists ranging from Jerry Garcia to Bob Marley to Metallica, the band Morgan went to see the night she died.

"I have to have these connections to Morgan," says her dad, who offers that he and his daughter traveled on the same wavelength. "We just got each other."

He brings up her cellphone account. "I hate AT&T but they will always have our business," he laughs. He then tears up after calling her number and listening to the lilting voice on her message.

Hi guys. This is Morgan. I can't talk just now but if you leave me a message, I'll call you as soon as I can.

"She always says that she'll get back to us but she never does," says her mom, 57, who has her own way of staying connected. Gil has taken to using the hand lotion in Morgan's bathroom sparingly. "I like to use it because Morgan's hands touched it but it's almost done. The stuff of Morgan, and the things that ran through her hands, are fewer and fewer in our lives. The ones that are there we like a lot. We find comfort in them."

What connects members of the Murdered Child's Club, and by extension, the Murdered Sibling's Club, to the people they grieve depends of course on the connections they had. After Morgan died, her brother Alex, 27, a fashion photo stylist in New York with Vogue, asked her parents for her duvet, eyeglasses and retainer. When he comes home, he sleeps in Morgan's bed.

"It is funny where you find comfort," says his mom, who has given some of Morgan's shirts and jewelry to her daughter's friends. "I like to see Morgan's clothes on other people. It lets me know that they think of her when they get up in the morning."

While the Harringtons have a hold on the past, they realize that, as a matter of practicality and necessity, they have to go on with their lives, too. That's why the cigar box in the living room, the one that belonged to Morgan's grandfather and now holds her ashes, is no longer always front and center on the coffee table. "We needed someplace to put the cheese plate," Gil says with a laugh.

Morgan's ashes also have been scattered where the family vacationed in North Carolina's Outer Banks and in a remote spot in the Himalayas, carried there by a college professor who taught Morgan and is now a close family friend.

Gil carried still more to Zambia, where she does relief work with the Orphan Medical Network International, a Roanoke-based organization that offers medical care and education to people in that southern Africa country. In 2012, the group opened the Morgan Harrington Educational Wing in the country's third-largest city, Ndola, which is on the border with the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

"The building came from a 'feeling sorry for yourself' moment," Morgan's mom says. "I thought, 'All I have are these freaking ashes.' Before we started building, I took some of them and rubbed them into the foundation area. Now I can say that Morgan's ashes made cinder block and built something."

Gil plans to travel to Zambia in November to see the school's next graduating class. "I find that very gratifying," she says. "What has made this terrible and tragic murder at all palatable to Dan and me is that we have squeezed and cajoled a whole lot of good from the fact that Morgan Harrington was and that her death has not eradicated her."

Building on heartache

The Harringtons may be better equipped than most to construct something positive from heartache. "What choice do we have?" Morgan's dad asks. "It is amazing what people can do if they have to."

He and his wife joined the Murdered Child's Club already knowing a lot about suffering and loss. Dan is the senior dean for academic affairs of the new Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine and Research Institute in Roanoke. He also is a psychiatrist. Gil is an oncology nurse. The couple is educated and experienced enough to know that the kind of hit they took shatters families. They are determined to keep it from shattering theirs.

That means respecting their son's wishes to remain out of the spotlight after his parents stepped into it in an effort to keep Morgan's case in the public eye. "Alex told us that he is proud of us and that he will do what we ask of him, but that he doesn't want to lead his life with this," his mother says. "We said, 'Honey, go and be wonderful.'"

She understands the self-inflicted wounds that being in the spotlight brings. "I'll be in Kroger and people will blurt out, 'Are you the mother of the dead girl?' Happens all the time," Gil says. "I always stop and talk. I've put myself out there. It still cuts a little bit." Others recognize her and avert their eyes, which may be even more painful. "Some people have said, 'When are the Harringtons going to get over it already?'"

The couple jokes about the mental list they have compiled of "things never to say" to the parents of a slain child, derived from things people have said to them in an attempt to be comforting. No. 1: Don't compare the loss of a child to the loss of a cat. No. 2: A child can't be replaced. "I had some guy hug me and say, 'You can always have other children,'" Gil says. "That would be remarkable given my age."

Her husband seizes on the opening. "I told Gil that if she gets off a plane from Zambia with a child, she better get a lawyer."

The Harringtons can be disarmingly irreverent and funny, which they recognize as a sign of healing. "We are not going to get closure. And we are not going to get over it," Gil says. "I do think you can get beyond it. I think you can recover. That makes sense to me."

Recovering means listening, really listening, to one another and cutting each other some slack. Gil tunes in intently as her husband describes his initial ambivalence at having some of Morgan's paintings hanging in the hallway outside his office at the medical school. Instead of viewing his comments as insensitive or an affront to their daughter's memory, his wife asks, "Do you want them taken down?"

"I don't know how I feel," he answers. "I am grateful that they are there but they are also a painful reminder that hits me in the face every day." In the end, gratitude won out and the paintings are now part of the medical school's permanent art collection.

Although a united front, each parent has limits. A soft-spoken, reserved man, Dan endures gawks and weird looks as he drives his Toyota Highlander around Roanoke with car magnets with the FBI sketch of Morgan's murder suspect affixed to the doors. "I have to admit it is a little embarrassing when I pull up to a stoplight," he says. But he hopes that among the gawkers is someone who recognizes the man.

Gil gave her car magnets to her brother. "I can't look at that face every time I get in my car to go to the grocery store," she says. "It totally throws me off my game."

The artist rendering came from the victim of a 2005 sexual assault in Fairfax City, Virginia. That woman, who survived her ordeal, provided police with enough of a description to make a sketch. Police at the time did not give the name of the woman and said only that "forensic evidence" linked her assault with Morgan's slaying.

Yes, the loss of a child, and especially the loss of a child to murder, can sink a couple, Gil says, or it can pull you closer together. "I think that we are really doing well," she says. "But you have to be willing to change and morph. We are not the same people that we were before Morgan was killed."

After Morgan died, Dan quit seeing his mental health patients. "It's not that I didn't sympathize with them," he says. "It's just that I'd always be able to say, 'Oh yeah, you think you have problems. My daughter was murdered.'" He recently began seeing a few patients again, another sign of recovery.

Both Gil and Dan have lost their parents. "We still think about them, and we miss them," Dan says. But "a murder, especially the murder of a child, does not get processed in the same way as a natural loss. Ten years out, I would think that Morgan's loss is still going to be acute."

His wife's continued anguish comes across on a family blog that she contributes to from time to time. She posted an entry this past June after police returned the signet ring that Morgan was wearing when she was killed.

"I see the flash of gold on my hand as I rinse out a teacup and I pray 'Please Morgan, help me see things more clearly.' I smile to realize that I now pray to you rather than for you, knowing you are beyond all pain and harm, -- angelic now...

"Wearing your ring, the one you were wearing when you were beaten, and your heart stopped beating, is my sacred honor and duty. The beauty of it, the pain of it continues to open me and whisper its teaching. I promise to listen so carefully and to stop grasping worry and fear and constructing barriers to wisdom. Hoping that acceptance and understanding will arrive eventually, I hear, learn, and choose to let the negative slip aside and instead allow growth to have its way -- untethered.

"Always and always,

"241

"Mama"

"2-4-1" is the family's code for "I love you too much, forever, and once more.

Trying to save the next girl

Before Morgan was killed. After Morgan was killed.

This is how the Harringtons date their existence as family. They have spent the past five years, the "after Morgan was killed" part, working to give their daughter's short life meaning.

"Those of us who are still breathing topside feel that, rather than be cut off at the knees, to be motivated to perhaps accomplish some of the things that Morgan was not able to do," her mother says. "People have said that Morgan's case has gotten a lot of publicity because she was a pretty blond girl. She was more than that. She was going to make a difference."

For years, Morgan worked with children who were victims of domestic violence and spent summers at Camp Easter Seals near Roanoke as a counselor for children with disabilities. The summer before she died, she interned at the medical school where her father works. "It probably sounds stupid but that was a life-changing time for her," her dad says. "Yes, she watched 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta,'" Dan laughs. She also grew close to two women at the medical school in top leadership positions, he says, which shored up her appreciation for the strength of women. The medical school faculty and staff have created a scholarship in Morgan's honor, funded in part by Metallica.

During the band's concert at the University of Virginia's John Paul Jones Arena, Morgan left her friends to go to the ladies' room. She fell and cut her face, witnesses told investigators. She somehow ended up outside, and staff refused to let her back in because of a "no re-entry" policy. The Harringtons have filed a multimillion-dollar civil suit claiming negligence against the company that provides arena security. The company, R.M.C. Events, did not return requests for comment. In court documents, it denied wrongdoing.

Especially painful and conflicting to the Harringtons is that Morgan's killing occurred in a place they thought of as Camelot. The tight-knit community of Charlottesville revolves around the University of Virginia, founded by President Thomas Jefferson and among the country's most prestigious colleges. It's where Dan was doing his medical residency when he met Gil, who was studying nursing. It's where both their children were born.

"There are predators even in Camelot," Gil says.

Investigators have long believed that her daughter's killer was intimately familiar with Charlottesville and the surrounding area because of where Morgan's body was discovered, on a remote and largely inaccessible hayfield of a 700-acre farm in south Albemarle County.

Gil says each fall now brings with it mounting anxiety. She confesses to being the owner of the lip prints that show up on the gray slate plaque honoring Morgan on the Copeley Road Bridge. "I put on a lot of dark lipstick and kiss the plaque because it makes it stand out," she says. "Every year, there's a whole new class that doesn't know the story of what happened to Morgan. Young girls are smaller, weaker, slower. That is what prey is. And if you are a predator, where do you go? College campuses."

With the arrest of Matthew in the Graham case, authorities have said they are studying other unsolved homicide and missing person cases in Virginia: In Campbell County, the sheriff's office is investigating a possible link to the case of Cassandra Morton, whose body was found in a wooded area near Lynchburg in November 2009: in Orange, police are checking for possible ties to the missing person case of Samantha Ann Clarke, who was last seen September 13, 2010: and in Montgomery County, the sheriff's office is looking for possible links to the unsolved 2009 shooting deaths of two Virginia Tech students, Heidi Childs and David Metzler.

In 2010, the Harringtons started "Help Save The Next Girl," a national campaign to educate young women on how to avoid becoming victims. Authorities have said that both Morgan and Hannah Graham had been drinking when they disappeared, which may have impaired their judgment. Witnesses saw Morgan hitchhiking.

The Harringtons say there's only one person responsible for their daughter's death: the person who killed her. Still, they want college students to be more alert and look out for each other. "I think Morgan was like all kids her age, like I was at that age," her father says. "They don't think bad things can happen to them. They take some chances they shouldn't."

There were six "Help Save The Next Girl" chapters before Hannah Graham's disappearance. With the publicity surrounding the case, Gil says, the number has doubled.

And even when Morgan's case is solved, she says, there still will be work to do. "Morgan's school in Africa. Her scholarship. Help Save The Next Girl. Those mechanisms of salvation already are in place. We want to engage in all these opportunities to create some goodness. That is how you trump evil."
