Jesse Matthew arrest prompts renewed look at 2009 Cassandra Morton murder

ABC 7 WJLA News - - Tue, 30 Sep 2014 14:17:42 EST

LYNCHBURG, Va. (ABC/AP) - The Campbell County Sheriff's office said Tuesday it is investigating a possible link between Jesse Matthew Jr. and Cassandra Morton.

Morton disappeared in October, 2009. Her body was discovered a few weeks later in a shallow grave on Candlers Mountain.

The Campbell County Sheriff's Office and Lynchburg Police have been looking for her killer ever since. Investigators said their leads have gone cold.

Meantime, Matthew's lawyer says police haven't told him what evidence they have against his client in the case of missing University of Virginia student Heather Graham or another young woman's disappearance and death.

Attorney James Camblos said he met with his 32-year-old client for about 2 hours Tuesday but still doesn't know what police have on him.

Matthew is accused of abduction with intent to sexually molest the 18-year-old Graham, who remains missing.

Virginia State Police also said Monday that Matthew's arrest provided a "forensic link" to the death of 20-year-old Morgan Harrington, who vanished while attending a rock concert at U.Va. in 2009.

Dead body found in Clifton park is that of Fairfax teen Cara Golias, reported missing

Virginia WJLA - Jennifer van der Kleut - Tue, 30 Sep 2014 11:10:11 EST

FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. (WJLA) - Just hours after City of Fairfax police reported 16-year-old resident Cara Lynn Golias missing Monday, her body was found in a Clifton park.

City of Fairfax police said Cara was last seen near Manassas Park Middle School Sunday afternoon. She reportedly walked away from the school voluntarily and into nearby woods, and was not seen again.

The teen was reported missing late Monday morning.

Around 1 p.m., Fairfax County police discovered the body of a young female in the 13200 block of Yates Ford Road at Hemlock Overlook Regional Park in Clifton, not far from the Virginia Railway Express (VRE) tracks.

The body was later identified as Cara's. City of Fairfax Police were called in to assist with the investigation.

Foul play is not suspected at this time.

"The Office of the Medical Examiner will determine the cause and manner of death, however, detectives do not suspect any criminal activity nor public safety threat involved," Fairfax County police said in a statement Tuesday morning.

VRE service was disrupted Monday evening due to the investigation's proximity to the tracks.

Morgan Harrington's mom makes plea to Jesse Matthew: Please tell where Hannah Graham is

ABC 7 WJLA News - The Associated Press - Tue, 30 Sep 2014 10:53:28 EST

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - They both were walking alone, separated from their friends late at night on or near the University of Virginia campus. One was found dead nearly five years ago. The other is still missing.

And now police believe they have found a link between the 2009 slaying of Morgan Harrington and the Sept. 13 disappearance of Hannah Graham: Forensic evidence found in the arrest of a hospital worker and former taxi driver who fled the state when he learned police wanted to question him about the Graham case.

Jesse L. Matthew Jr., 32, was arrested on a beach near Galveston, Texas, last week and was brought back to Virginia to face a charge of abduction with intent to defile - or sexually molest - the 18-year-old sophomore from northern Virginia. If convicted, he could face up to life in prison. His bond hearing is set for Thursday.

Virginia State Police said Monday that Matthew's arrest provided a new forensic link for investigators to pursue in the Harrington investigation. In a written statement, they called it a "significant break" but did not elaborate on the precise nature of the evidence and said they would make no further comment. Charlottesville police and Matthew's attorney, James Camblos, did not return messages.

Harrington's mother, Gil Harrington, issued an appeal to Matthew on Tuesday morning during an appearance on NBC's "Today" show.

"I would like to appeal to him to please give the family information where Hannah is. We need to find Hannah," she said.

She said police have not given her family any information that has not been publicly released.

Since their daughter was slain, Dan Harrington said the couple has worked to prevent crimes against young women by promoting personal safety.

"It is sad and we're sad that this has happened," he said, referring to Graham's disappearance.

He said Graham's case might help prevent future occurrences in Virginia.

The latest development may also help solve a 2005 sexual assault of a 26-year-old woman in Fairfax City, since the FBI previously said DNA from Harrington's attacker matched that of the person who committed the sexual assault. On Monday, police spokeswoman Natalie Hinesley said that in order to maintain the integrity of their investigation, they are not going to comment on whether the developments in the Graham and Harrington cases affect their case. Leading up to Matthew's arrest, police had searched his car and home and removed items, including clothing, they consider evidence. The items were sent to the state crime lab for testing, but Charlottesville police have not divulged any results. Harrington, a 20-year-old Virginia Tech student from Roanoke, attended a Metallica concert at John Paul Jones Arena on the Charlottesville campus on Oct. 17, 2009. She left during the concert and vanished. A farmer found her remains three months later in an Albemarle County hayfield, which was among the places searched shortly after Graham disappeared, police have said. At the time, Matthew had a license to drive a taxi, according to the state Department of Motor Vehicles. Graham disappeared after meeting friends for dinner and attending two off-campus parties. She left the last one alone and was captured on video surveillance walking or running past a pub, a service station and onto Charlottesville's Downtown Mall, where police say witnesses reported seeing her with Matthew at a bar. Graham had sent friends several text messages, including one saying she was lost. Clint Van Zandt, a former FBI profiler, said he was struck by the similarities between the two disappearances. He said both women were separated from their friends in areas they apparently did not know well, and perhaps were offered assistance by a predator. "Their looking for help was turned against them," he said. He also said he was not surprised by the new evidence. "Since this most recent victim disappeared, I said time and again that if they could find out who was responsible there was a good chance the same person would be responsible for Morgan Harrington and a number of others," he said. He said he was "not trying to indict the guy" but added that police likely will investigate Matthew for other crimes against women, including the 2005 sexual assault. At least two other women from the Charlottesville area are missing. Police previously said they had no reason to link those cases to Graham's disappearance. Matthew was a defensive lineman on the Liberty University football team from 2000 to 2002. He was accused of raping a student on campus, but the charge was dropped when the person declined to move forward with prosecution, Lynchburg Commonwealth's Attorney Michael Doucette said Friday. Matthew, who was returned from Texas late Friday, is being held without bond at the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail. He is scheduled to appear via a video link for a bond hearing in Charlottesville General District Court on Thursday.

DNA links man to 2 missing Virginia women

WDBJ 7 National News - - Tue, 30 Sep 2014 14:20:06 GMT

DNA evidence links Jesse Matthew, a suspect in this month's disappearance of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham, to the death of Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington, who disappeared in 2009, a law enforcement source told CNN Monday.

Virginia State Police had said earlier that the two cases were connected by a "forensic link" but did not elaborate. Almost from the start, speculation was raised about the possibility of a connection between Graham's disappearance and Harrington's death.

"Certainly the question has arisen. It's certainly a legitimate question," Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo told reporters last week.

Harrington was a 20-year-old Virginia Tech student when she went missing after attending a Metallica concert in Charlottesville in October 2009. Her remains were found on a farm months later.

No arrests have been made in Harrington's case, and the cause of her death is still under investigation.

Graham, a student at the University of Virginia, was last seen Sept. 13 in an area of Charlottesville known as the Downtown Mall. Police have asked owners of large parcels of property in surrounding counties to search their land and report back.

Authorities are offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the safe return of Graham, 18, who was a second-year student at the university.

Investigators say they believe Matthew was the last person with Graham. He is charged with abduction with the intent to defile in the case, according to Charlottesville police.

The last major development in the Harrington case came in 2010, when her slaying was connected to the kidnapping and sexual assault of another woman in Fairfax Virginia, in 2005.

That woman, who survived her ordeal, was able to provide police with enough of a description to make a sketch. That sketch is the closest thing to a resolution that Harrington's family has had.

Police at the time did not give the name of the woman who gave the description and said only that "forensic evidence" linked the two.

The revelation that Matthew may be linked to Harrington's death, and the fact that Harrington's death is linked to the kidnapping and rape of the woman in Fairfax, raises even more questions. Police have not publicly connected the dots except to say that Matthew's arrest has given them a break in the investigation of Harrington's death

Matthew was being held in isolation in a Virginia jail cell.

Mitt Romney to visit McLean, Va. for Barbara Comstock fundraiser

ABC 7 WJLA Politics - The Associated Press - Tue, 30 Sep 2014 04:37:09 EST

McLEAN, Va. (AP) - Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney is coming to northern Virginia to help an old ally in her congressional campaign.

Romney is headlining a fundraiser Tuesday night in McLean for Barbara Comstock, who served as his Virginia campaign co-chair in 2012 and was one of his more prominent surrogates in that race.

Comstock, a Republican, is running against Democrat John Foust in Virginia's 10th District, which stretches from McLean neighborhoods inside the Capital Beltway west to the Shenandoah Valley.

The longtime incumbent in the district, Frank Wolf, is retiring after more than 30 years in office.

The race has been one of the most closely watched in the nation, featuring an open seat in a district that has supported Republicans and Democrats.

The fundraiser will be closed to the press.

Manassas wounded warrior, Jay Briseno, gets new home

Virginia WJLA - Rebecca Cooper - Mon, 29 Sep 2014 22:37:13 EST

MANASSAS, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: A local wounded warrior and his family received a life-changing gift on Monday.

For the past 11 years, Jay Briseno&rsquo:s parents haven&rsquo:t had much time to cry: they have simply been too busy caring for their son, one of the most severely injured Army veterans to survive the Iraq War. Though Briseno is partially brain damaged, blind and paralyzed by the bullet that was shot through his head, he is still able to communicate his feelings.

On Monday, there were plenty of tears as Briseno&rsquo:s family&mdash:including his Army veteran father, Joseph&mdash:expressed gratitude for the new custom-built home they received and the mixed emotions of leaving their former home behind.

&ldquo:There&rsquo:s a lot of great memories in that home &hellip: and not-so-good memories,&rdquo: Joseph Briseno said, choking up.

Every day is a struggle for 31-year-old Jay Briseno, a former Manassas Park High School track star, and his caregiver parents. His youngest sister, Mallory, says the fully donated custom-built home will bring joy with even basic things, like finally being able to lift her brother from his special chair, so he can take his first real bath in 11 years.

Led by Helping a Hero and two local Virginia nonprofits, Azalea Charities and the Quality of Life Foundation, a total of 80 businesses and organizations helped build the Brisenos&rsquo: new home. Dumfries Boy Scout Troop 35 planted the grass and did all the landscaping.

As the Brisenos were handed the keys to their new home, Lee Greenwood sang &ldquo:God Bless the U.S.A.&rdquo: for the crowd of national media, local neighbors, friends and family. Greenwood teared up telling ABC 7 News why every wounded warrior is special, but none more so than Briseno.
