Morgan Harrington was last seen at a concert outside the John Paul Jones arena in Charlottesville, VA. It was October 17, 2009. Police say Morgan separated from friends when she walked out of the front entrance of a Metallic concert around 8:30 p.m.  Morgan never returned, and it was the last time she was seen alive. Investigators say she called her friends who were still inside and told them she was finding a ride home.

State police officials report Morgan was last seen by the ticket office on the University Hall side of the building and witnesses report seeing her hitchhiking close to the arena exit road. An intense search of the area yielded no new clues until three months later.

In January 2010, Morgan’s body was found on a farm in Albemarle County, Virginia. Investigators said her decomposed body could have been on the land as many as 100 days.

On what would have been Morgan Harrington’s 21st birthday, family and friends gathered to remember this beautiful college student.  Over the weekend, a homemade quilt was left for Morgan on the Copley Road Bridge, the last place she was seen, and 21 purple balloons were released into the sky.  Attached to each balloon was the sketch of the man police believe could be responsible for her abduction and possibly even her murder.

CASE UPDATE: What happened to Morgan?

Remembering Morgan (family photo)

Remembering Morgan (family photo)

As the world waits to learn more about Morgan Harrington’s official cause of death, the support for the Harrington family keeps growing.  On Friday night, many friends from the virtual world gathered in front of the Harrington’s home to honor Morgan with a candlelight vigil on Friday night.  Internet tools like Facebook, Twitter, and Morgan’s website were the same some of the places supporters organized an effort for Morgan and her family.  Many people who gathered at the Harrington household in the cold say they never met Morgan in person, only to know her by her beautiful pictures and words from her family and friends, but their souls were touched by her spirit.

Last week, police confirm remains found on a Virginia farm are in fact those of Morgan Harrington.  I spoke to State Police officials today, and they say they are working to determine Morgan’s cause and time of death.  I spoke with the Medical Examiner’s in Richmond last week, and they say in normal cases an autopsy to include toxicology reports normally take 24 hours, but in this case, it could take weeks.  State police investigators were at the ME’s office later last week working with the pathologists as they took x-rays and gathered information.  Authorities are on the farm for days conducting a grid search, and gathering as much evidence as they could.  Police say Morgan’s body could have been on the farm for as many as 100 days.
