In Depth: The Morgan Harrington Investigation

Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington was last seen near the University of Virginia in October 2009.

Police say she left her friends to use the restroom during a Metallica concert at John Paul Jones Arena. When she did not return, her friends called her. She told them she was outside and could not get back in because of its re-entry policy. Witnesses later saw someone matching Harrington's description walking along Copley Road Bridge.

Her remains were discovered Jan. 26, 2010, on Anchorage Farm in Albemarle County. Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr. is facing first-degree murder and abduction with the intent to defile charges in connection to her death.
