CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Police say they are confident that skeletal remains found on a Virginia farm are likely those of a Virginia Tech student who vanished after attending a Metallica concert.
State Police Superintendent Steve Flaherty said Tuesday an autopsy will be conducted to confirm that the remains are Morgan Harrington. Authorities say they found significant items and evidence at the scene.
The 20-year-old Roanoke woman became separated from friends Oct.
17. after she left a concert arena and was denied re-entry.
The remains were found Tuesday morning by a farmer about 10 miles from where Harrington attended the concert at the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville.
