Vigil to be held in memory of Va. Tech student

By Washington Post editors

A candlelight vigil will be held on Friday at 7 p.m. in memory of Morgan Harrington, the 20-year-old Virginia Tech student whose remains were found earlier this week.

Her parents, Daniel and Gil Harrington, think that Morgan was the victim of a predator who knows the area well.

"This is not a random place that someone came upon accidentally," Daniel Harrington said in an earlier interview. "This is known to someone here."

The vigil will be held outside the family home in Roanoke.

Morgan Harrington disappeared Oct. 17 after attending a Metallica concert at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. Her remains were found Jan. 26 on a farm southwest of Charlottesville.

Police ask that anyone with information about Harrington call Virginia State Police at 434-924-7166 or e-mail
