Harrington's Mother Blogs About Her Experience

Posted: Updated:

Virginia state police say the body of a woman found in Roanoke is not that of Morgan Harrington, despite rumors to the contrary. 

Spokesperson Corinne Geller says the search and investigation into the 20-year-old's October 17th disappearance continue.  Nearly 500 leads have come in on the case. 

Morgan’s mom Gil blogged about managing the emotions of her missing daughter, who has been missing for one month now. 

She says if you let the loss ruin your life you let the guys who snatched Morgan win, you let evil win, and that she cannot let that happen. 

Mrs. Harrington goes on to say that her planned circumscribed picture of a life has been fractured, but the shards can be rearranged into a mosaic. Different, but still beautiful and precious.
