T-shirt found, confirmed as Morgan Harrington's
Virginia State Police said Thursday that a T-shirt found in Charlottesville in November has been confirmed as that worn by Morgan D. Harrington, 20, who disappeared during an October Metallica concert at the University of Virginia.
The shirt with "Pantera" in tan letters on the front was discovered by a local resident on 15th Street near Grady Avenue, less than three miles from where Harrington, a Virginia Tech student from Roanoke, last was seen walking and hitchhiking on the Copeley Road bridge near Ivy Road in Charlottesville.
Harrington's body was found in January in a field by an Albermarle County farmer.
Her death has been ruled a homicide but the time and cause of her death has not been determined, state police said. The site of the concert was roughly midway between the points where her body and the shirt eventually were found, local maps show.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Jefferson Area Crime Stoppers at (434) 977-4000. A reward of $150,041 is still available for anyone with information that leads to a resolution of this crime.
Calls can also be made to local police or the Virginia State Police Tip Line at (434) 352-3467 or e-mailed to the State Police. Anonymous tips are welcome.
