Virginia Student’s Body Found
Farmer finds skeletal remains in a field, most likely those of Morgan Harrington.
Morgan Harrington, 20, an education major at Virgina Tech, went missing last October 17 after going to see a Metallica concert where she was separated from her friends after going to use the restroom. Still, her parents hadn’t given up hope that they would find her sometime soon.
Morgan’s mom, Gil Harrington, wrote on her blog last weekend: “Despite the length of time Morgan has been gone I remain hopeful. Part of me is waiting to be surprised. Waiting for God to pull the rabbit out of the hat and bring Morgan home. I cannot imagine that all the water of Morgan’s potential is to run down the drain and be wasted.”
Sadly, Mrs. Harrington’s wait has come to an end. A farmer in Charlottesville, Virginia found bones in a private hay field 10 miles from the concert arena that police believe belong to Morgan. Although test results are not in yet, there was evidence found along with the body that matched Harrington’s case.
“I looked down and saw what looked like a human skull,” the farmer told CNN. “My first thought was that it was Morgan Harrington.”
“This is a horrible day,” Morgan’s father, Dan, said. (CNN)
