My heart goes out to her family. This is a time where the businesses need to rethink their rules especially when it comes to females that can be harmed. It wouldn't have hurt for the concert hall to allow her re-entrance and to show her stub if unable to do so than have her escorted to her vehicle. UVA and the Down Town Mall area is not as safe as people make it out to be.

And it's the first time I've ever agree with XD357Sig. I had always opposed the death penalty, on moral/religious grounds, until many years ago a high school friend and his girlfriend were murdered and their bodies hidden by a lunatic in the mountains. After going through that, and watching his parents and big sisters and little brother suffer through the search, discovery, and long goodbye, I've been all for capital punishment for that kind of crime, provided the proof of guilt really is made beyond a reasonable doubt (in my friend's case, it was easy, as the sicko killer helped the police find the kids' remains). Here's hoping the police competently manage any real leads they have in the Harrington case, and that they don't feel compelled to blurt things out and blow it just to appease the public's wish to be informed. It's not always good to give the criminals an idea of how close they are to being found out and captured, and achieving that closure will be very important for Morgan's family and friends.

My heart goes out to the Harrington family as i know their hearts are broken into. I know you will truly have closure when the person/persons are punished for doing this heinous crime to your daughter. May God Bless you!

At the same time, what happens if someone you let re-enter comes in with a gun, knife, or some other type of weapon? Yes this is a sad situation but, you can't fault jpj for their policies. The rules are there for a reason. Safety for all. It's just sad it ended this way.

I am not sure why reentry is prohibited. It does not make sense at all citing security reasons. Just have them searched again when they come back. It is not rocket science.
The killer has to be someone in the Redhill area or someone who knows that area well. I don't think a random person would end up picking that spot to dump the body.

My main gripe is that police don't take sexual predators seriously enough. Up north a certain county (I won't mention its name, but it might begin with a "Staf" and end with a "ford") doesn't even like to do rape kits. Then you hear things on the news like the Federal government has to give out money to states to process rape kits because the states can't afford all of them.(Why so many? In my mind, that's what happens when you don't catch rapists, they just keep on raping.) And THEN you hear that even though the states have all this Federal money, they STILL don't process rape kits! What the ....? What kind of crime is more important than rape, other than murder? How do cops have time to lock kids up for smoking a joint, or time to write traffic tickets, when there are rapes and murders out there unsolved?

You don't investigate one rape, that rapist doesn't even have a record to make people suspect him. He can rape again and again, maybe even murder here and there for YEARS before he's caught. A good case study of this is the guy Huckabee lost the primaries because of, the rapist Dumond who later died of cancer in jail. Remember the commercials that a private citizen paid to have aired, to warn them about Huck -- the one with Ms. Shields' mother saying her daughter wouldn't be home for Christmas because the rapist Dumond murdered her daughter? Just google it.

I'm sure they'll catch the guy(s) who murdered Ms. Harrington because everyone is focused on the case. But my point is, would she still be alive today if other cases had been solved first? That's why it's important for the sake of ALL the women in the community, not just the cute kids who make it onto TV.

I wonder if the owner has ever let anyone "hunt" on this property? That's something to look into.

There has to be a connection to that farm. Not the owner, mind you, but someone who hunts or rides ATV's on that property. I have traveled 29 South for years and would have no idea that the farm road would lead to such a remote area that can only be accessed by a four wheel drive tractor. Someone was familiar with that area and had been there before. My bet is some country boy from Red Hill, North Garden or Covesville knows something about this.

Yes, my heart goes out to the Harrington familiy also - I have 3 sons and I cannot imagine the pain of losing one. BUT why blame JPJ Arena. I've been to the Arena on two occasions -- there is no way to confuse the restroom doors with the entrance doors. She had to know she was going outside. It was a poor decision, but a poorer one to walk on out into the night.

"Country boy"...wow, how judgemental. I would think it would more likely be "UVA party animal" as I heard there were parties held on that land.

rapist get away with raping because rules are not followed, child molestors get custody of their children (and I've seen this happen in Greene County) the guy is now living in Madison is a registered sex offender can not be alone with his other 2 children from a previous relationship but can have custody of his 2 and 4 year old court of Greene gave them to him. This is a great country we live in if your a criminal. We need more caring innocent people to pay attention and get involved to stop the criminals because the police can't do it theirselves but we also need to get the crooked judges out of the system that give innocent babies to molestors and put rapist on the street.
