Concerned in Ivy

Charlottesville, VA

#1 Feb 18, 2010
First, I want to express my sincerest condolences to the Harringtons for their tragic loss of their beautiful daughter, Morgan. Words cannot convey the pain I feel for your family.
Secondly, In light of Dans statement that a killer is still among us, I feel it is of the upmost importance that LE comes forward to the comminity to confirm this as fact and stress precautions. They need to stop downplaying that a murder took place in our community and be honest with us. We are a strong community and won't wilt under this fact. We are not babies. LE owes us a press conference.
I, for one, am sick of the cryptic pressers. Come right out and tell us what you need and what we need to do.
We all need to be extra cautious...I know I'm one who never locked my back door until Morgan was found. Now it stays locked right along with my front door.

To the editors...
Please lean on LE to give this community the press conference they need. We need reassurance of some sort...give us something, anything, please.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Harringtons; such a tragedy.
"Concerned in Ivy" touches upon a point that has bugged me from day one: the apparent lack of information to the public surrounding the facts about exactly had happened. Information trickled out slowly and metered - valuable time went by as this incident profile began taking shape. I think a lot was known early, it just wasn't made available to the public in a straightforward/expedient fashion.
A killer among us ? What the he(ll) are they waiting for to expand on this ; hold a press conference already -- TALK - COMMUNICATE - DO SOMETHING - UPDATE US.

Has the police investigated the Farmer who found her. Something about him doesn't seem right.

The police aren't saying because the police don't know. There is no crystal ball folks and unless the killer talks, which is unlikely, the chances of an arrest are slim to none. Again, make something positive come of this. Start enforcing harsher penalties on those convicted of violent crimes. Start collecting DNA from all felons. Stop early release which puts violent offenders back on the street. START PUTTING THE RIGHTS OF SOCIETY BEFORE THE RIGHTS OF THE CRIMINAL.

Maybe the facts of the case would be "disturbing" to readers. Every time there is a tragedy discussed in this forum someone writes in to say we should be more considerate of the family and that the survivors feelings might be hurt by the observations and questions presented. From what I gather, this very unfortunate tragedy would not have occurred in the absence of irresponsible behavior by the victim, who may have had a history of irresponsible behavior. People die of accidental overdose, alcohol poisoning, and accidents while "partying", so I am not even totally convinced there is a killer on the loose amongst us. Maybe if the facts had been presented candidly someone who does know what really happened would step forward, as it is to do so would be inviting a murder charge so I doubt anyone will. I would like all the facts to be made public, that is our right in a free society, even if the total candid truth might be ugly and painful to some.

I just spoke to Joe Rader this evening when I seen him here in town, I inquired about the fire and any connection, he says they got my email, and they did look at a connection, but none was found, it was strictly coincidental that they happened hours apart. He did say they have alot of pieces to the puzzle, but they need more information to solve it. Which in a case like this will take some time to put it all together.

I understand that the detectives and the police are doing all that they can do however there are soooo many people here in crozet that are talking about what happened that it seems crazy that they are not being investigated. There are actually sick people that are here talking about how they were involved and no matter how many tips they get it seems like nothing is being done to investigate it. These people are sick and the scary thing about it is that they live in the same house with a lot of teenage girls.

Wow. You should tell the police about this if you haven't already, might be more pieces of the unsolved puzzle.

I already have called in the tip so hopefully that will help out. It just makes me sick to think that the people he lives with continue to allow him to live in their house knowing that he is either involved or knows what happened to that girl!

In your comments, are you referring to the students that were living in the house that burnt down? I'm not thinking you are. Correct? The students associated with the house fire came forward in these forums to their own defense. And they have nothing to do with living with teenage girls as aforementioned on this thread.
Clarify?

Everyone is a suspect until the "perp" confesses. If you are a cyclist who frequented the area in which Morgan was found - you are a suspect. If you are someone who was "out" that night in the Charlottesville area - you are a suspect. If any of your family members were "out" that night- they are suspects. If you were in the news anytime during the time span from the night she went missing - you are a suspect. If you are a taxi driver who may have picked her up - you are a suspect. If you are a UVa basketball player - you are a suspect. If you are one of the local police who patrols the area in which she was found - you are a suspect. If you do a lot of commenting about this and/or show a lot of interest - you are a suspect.

Okay. That said, what's the big deal in being a suspect if you're innocent, right? Why exactly are you sick of Crozet?

Why not give a psyhic a shot they do work for the FBI and CIA why not try? At this point they might not have nothing to lose.

Evidently LE is convinced. And it is a bit of a stretch to think that Morgan died of an OD or alcohol poisoning and then dumped her own body. While I suppose it is possible that her body was found at a site used by trespassers for parties, nothing in the media supports that idea, and certainly a "party site" would have yielded a mother lode of information.

I am not convinced that 'there is a killer on the loose amongst us' either.

I agree on a few of you opinions, but not all. Too much prtying? Maybe. But, someone placed the body where it could not be found, probably hoping animals would dispose of it.

I didn't say that no crime was committed. I am saying that due to the lack of information being made available to the public, we have no real basis to form an opinion as to whether there is a remorseless killer on the loose looking for their next victim. It may be that there was a field party or house party and she wandered off drunk, or was dumped, and either way that is a crime but it is not premeditated murder. Someone may have supplied drugs that killed her, that is manslaughter but not premeditated murder. If the evidence points to abduction, we have the right to know and if it points to death due to stupidity we have the right to not be as worried about a serial killer amongst us.

1st- Notify Virginia State Police

2nd- What exactly are these people saying happened? How can you be sure that they just don't have a sick sense of humor?
