Harrington Suspect Sketch Circulated in Connection with Missing PA Woman
New developments in the disappearance of a Pennsylvania woman could mean a step forward for the Morgan Harrington case. The sketch of the man believed to be the top suspect in Harrington's murder is making the rounds in connection with 21-year-old Kortne Stouffer, a missing Pennsylvania woman.
Kortne Stouffer vanished from her Palmyra, Pennsylvania apartment July 29. A police officer was one of the last people to see her, after being called to the apartment for a disturbance.
The sketch is being circulated in the Harrisburg area by a bounty hunter who thinks he can help with the case.
We spoke with Morgan Harrington's mother Gil, who found out about the sketch circulation Monday morning.
"This is a serial offender, if not a serial murderer. We have said that for years and I have also been adamant that I didn't want to sit back and just wait for the next body. I believe there are more bodies, I do," she said.
Gil Harrington says this latest information demonstrates that the suspect is cocky and comfortable, and she believes that someone is helping him. She also says she is afraid to put too much hope and credence in this latest information.
"We arrest him, my Morgan is as dead as she was the day before. It doesn't make it okay, but it does mean when we get an arrest, that perpetrator will not be harming any other young women," she stated.
Law enforcement is not making any connection between the two cases right now. Virginia State Police says it has no evidence to link the Harrington case to the Pennsylvania disappearance. The department went on to say, at this time, the only crime the Harrington case is connected to is a 2005 sexual assault that occurred in the city of Fairfax, Va. The sketch has been circulating on Facebook and within the Palmyra, Pennsylvania community.
