There is a vicious "dog" on the loose. I hope that he is caught soon so that he will never hurt or murder again. I feel so bad for the parents of the victim. They need closure so that they can move on.

The FBI says it is a murder. They do not have to release what they know that tells them this. They don't say "person of interest." They say "murder suspect."

It truly is pathetic that people would make this brutal murder a joke. You also do not pay attention. VSP and FBI have repeatedly said they believe the killer to be in this area. Pay attention and stop being soon grossly immature.

Exactly what I was saying. Charlottesville is asleep and I pray this monster does not get another girl because of this complacency.

I think there is this feeling that the Harringtons are those parents we all know, the ones whose child is never to blame when the group gets in trouble. It's much easier to sleep at night if they can blame Mortan's murder on RMC, UVa, and even the people of Charlottesville, since we must be hiding the killer. Maybe they've allowed the friends to sleep better at night, too, but shifting the responsibility of taking care of their friend to the ticket takers at JPJ. The big question is, who was most responsible for keeping an eye on Morgan and saving her from herself?

Bet they would have sued RMC if the arena had Morgan arrested that night for being drunk in public, or if they detained her for the remainder of the concert and did not let her take her seat.

Either way, how are they responsible for Morgan's poor choices -- from drinking or drugging to excess, for leaving despite warnings she could not return, for refusing help from many who offered it, for asking complete strangers for rides, for leaving the security of the arena and venturing onto the bridge, and for thumbing a ride?

I think people wd gladly turn the uiy in to get the $$$ or just because it's the right thing, but maybe no one knows about it but the bad guy. he will turn out to be a quiet neighbor who kept to himself, or even a friendly guy none would have suspected. The cops may be too fixated on finding a Cville connection. I hope they keep an open mind about people from neighboring states, or maybe from far away if he's a trucker.

Actually, "this monster" or what the REAL monster is in reality: drugs, alcohol, and stupid behavior, will continue to "get" young women and men as long as this type behavior continues. And other than your shrill "THERE'S A MONSTER OUT THERE! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!" sheep bleating hysteria, what, exactly, soccer mom, can you show us that states there is in fact a murderer? What else would the police call an unsolved death like this? Death by stupidity? Of course they are going to call it a homicide or murder until they are proven either right or wrong. But remind yourself between bites of your tofu salad; nothing has been proven. And until then, many perfectly compassionate, concerned, rational people such as myself will continue to believe that there is no "vicious animal" or "dog" or boogeyman lurking in the alleyways looking for his next victim.(Other than the usual bogeymen lurking in the alleyways.) There are indeed bad people out there, and if you and your posse would take your blame blinders off for five minutes and devote even 10% of your psychobabble to discussing the REAL issue; drug and alcohol abuse and casual hookups by college students, perhaps we could make some actual progress. Until then, I'll continue to get in your face when I read your self-serving drivel.

Yeah I said that 3 years ago and the reactions were mostly near hysterical. It was a tragedy. But it happens to a lot of young people, most never nearly as much attention from the press (especially if the victim is black and poor). The Harringtons are not special or exceptional, Morgan was not special or exceptional. There was nothing exceptional about her that qualified for special recognition from that state legislature except that maybe her dad is politically connected. Recognition for what, doing something that any 20 year old ADULT should know is exceptionally stupid?

Obviously some of you only pay attention to what you DON'T agree with. The Harringtons are fully aware of the poor choices their daughter made. Choices so many college students make every day, and is why they inspired the "Help Save the Next Girl" campaign, which educates young women and girls about smart decisions and practices. They've involved colleges, high schools and Girl Scouts in this endeavor. The October 17th Bridge Ceremony simply marks an anniversary, reminds, remembers and warns of the lurking dangers everywhere. You've just not recognized the other 364 days of education.Pay attention.

To be fair, you never hear Gil actually say that Morgan made bad choices. The whole campaign is designed to paint the next girl as a victim who must be saved. They didn't name it DON'T BE THE NEXT GIRL. The implication is that everyone failed to save Morgan that night. There's even a law suit to try to blame the venue.

And, if DNA samples were required of everyone convicted of a felony we would have this solved by now. If you don't want to give your DNA sample don't commit crimes. It is time for the rights of society to come before the rights of convicted felons.

This guy is not (yet) a convicted felon, so would not help this case. And they probably don't have enough to convict him in Morgan's case. Maybe for Fairfax if he doesn't plea down.

Point is, he may not even end up being convicted of a felony. It happens, right?

In Virginia, DNA samples are taken from everyone arrested for a violent felony and run through the database. Even if you are not convicted and the dna identifies and connects you with another case, the dna hit can be used against you in that other case.

Gotta agree with Albemarle. The guy who did this is not a novice. He is a career criminal who has been arrested before. Maybe his first murder, but certainly not his first felony.

Closure? She passed away, nobody has confirmed a "murder" even occured, only a person of interest.
"Dan and Gil Harrington always hope this will be their last trip to Copeley Road without a killer behind bars, but say it won't be the last time you see Morgan's face. "We are trying to make a positive legacy for her."
That would be a good thing, the more details that come out, the more you learn how she contributed to her own demise.
"Yawn", I truly hope you are not as evil and heart less as you try to seem because if you are than you are almost as bad as the animal that MURDERED the Harrington's child becuase it takes a mind set like that to do such evil. It doesn't matter if Morgan contributed to her own demise or not, no one has the right to kill a person's child despite the cercumstances for which she finds herself. Please find yourself some help. You honestly need it.

I think no one is talking because everyone is looking down the wrong avenue due to the sketch. It's my opinion the sketch is totally off base. I'm not sure if hypnosis works or not but the first victim should try it. That and any other type of treatment that might trigger a vision or memory. Maybe even "Eye Movement Therapy" or whatever else anyone can think of to assist the first victim in giving more information about this man. I'm sure she if anyone wants him off the street and behind bars almost as much as the Harringtons do.

So once again, a perfect example of the pervasive Tickle Me Elmo mentality; "if you don't believe that Morgan was brutally murdered by a savage animal, you are (a) evil,(b) somehow complicit in her demise,(c) you need help; (d) all of the above.

I'm flattered. But perhaps you could educate me, have there been appearances by the ShriekyMom where she focused on the dangers of her daughter's behavior, and not on the behavior of others?
