    JLM: Morgan Harrington/Fairfax Rape Victim - *Forensic Link* to MH #2

    I'm going to open a thread specifically for Morgan Harrington and the Fairfax rape victim since there is so much interest. Should DNA rule him out, we will close the thread. In the meantime, post relevant information here.

    Is anyone else feeling completely overwhelmed by this? I slept for about 4 hours last night as my mind was racing. I just feel like my mind is completely blown by this. I always held a bit of hope that when they ran JM's DNA they would find a match with what they had from Morgan and the 2005 rape, but I just couldn't let myself believe that they would be linked. Now I'm just stunned. Five years of hoping that the creep who slaughtered Morgan would trip up and make a mistake. And he has! Seriously, I just can't believe this has happened.

    I was 99% convinced he was guilty of HG's disappearance but was definitely on the fence regarding MH/Fairfax. I too am stunned. Not that I find it so inconceivable that someone could be guilty of multiple offenses, it's just.....I hate to say it, but he looks so normal. With someone like RAT, he looks like exactly what he is but JM....it's frightening because he looks friendly and clean-cut and average. I'm sure he used that to his full advantage.

    I know looks have nothing to do with any of it, but apparently I'm more susceptible to that myth than I thought, which disturbs me.

    I haven't been keeping up with all Hannah's threads currently as I just don't have the time, but I just read all of this one. Maybe this kind of info has been covered elsewhere though. Does anyone else wonder about the circumstances just prior to when their paths intersected with JLM? I may have missed stuff about why Hannah was away from her friends and running around, seemingly in distress at some point. Similarly, Morgan was acting strangely also, it is suggested from a head injury. Was their circumstances, some other misfortune like an injury for Morgan or maybe emotional upset for Hannah just a coincidence that made them additionally vulnerable? It is probably a long bow to draw that he could of set their circumstances in motion earlier in the evening but when I think about how Bundy operated he was just as happy giving things a go as actually completing the murder. It is like window shopping vs trying things on vs buying something, they are all satisfying to some degree, and while buying is the pinnacle there are downsides not associated with the scoping and anticipation.

    Has it been revealed why Hannah was off on her own, after twice being with friends (if I recall correctly, at her place and at a party)?

    (that should read I read all the last thread, it closed as I posted in the last one, so I pasted it here and I can't edit it as the edit box is broken when I try)

    Yes! I am feeling overwhelmed and barely slept myself. My mind has been racing as well. I can not begin to imagine what Hannah's family and Morgan's family must be going through. I have gone through many emotions since learning of the forensic link. Glad he's behind bars, and relieved somewhat for the Harrington's because I know they needed to have Morgan's killer brought to justice. Their mission for the last five years was to stop this monster so another young woman wasn't taken from her family. Then my emotions shift to sadness for Hannah because this doesn't bode well for her or her family. She is most likely gone like Morgan. I am also angry because this guy has been living in plain sight all along - right there in Charlottesville - didn't anyone suspect him? I have read too many articles where friends of JMs have come out and said things like - I'm paraphrasing here...but things like "We joked with JM when the composite sketch came out and told him he was a spitting image of that sketch" and further went on to say that "JM grew his hair out after that and shaved his beard." In one interview one of his friends said that JM would go out on the prowl - I think even calling him "a prowler" or whatever and seek women out who were vulnerable to "increase his chances" or something to that effect. I mean....HELLO. Like I said in the last thread...no one wants to believe one of their friends could commit such a horrible crime...but goodness....there he was - right there! I don't know about most people...but if there was a brutally murdered girl in my town and I had a friend who very much resembled a composite sketch, who had a history and "prowled" around for vulnerable women - I would not hesitate to call in a tip to LE!!!

    I have such a different opinion of him. He doesn't look clean cut at all to me and looks like a big mean ****. I know you shouldn't judge people for the way they look....but with his size and the way he looks....I'd be scared to death of him. Maybe in the earlier pictures of him he doesn't look so mean...but the newer pictures of him....yikes.

    Here's another 'abduction with intent to defile'.
    He had a chemical and a cloth in his car.
    Interesting.

    I don't know if JM is a sociopath but sociopaths from what I've read are actually attractive, charismatic people.

    A staffer at the Trading Post, a convenience store on Monacan Trail Road less than two miles from where Harrington’s remains were found at Anchorage Farm, said patrons had seen Matthew in the store after Graham disappeared. The store’s owner could not confirm whether Matthew had been sighted in the store recently.
    Early Monday, two people announced that Matthew’s “friends and supporters” set up an online fundraising site for his defense. Several hours later, the organizers asked in an email that their names be removed from information about the crowdfunding site, which had a goal of raising $50,000.

    “I have received threatening and menacing emails, and do not feel comfortable having my contact information available any longer.” one of the organizers wrote.

    Monday evening, a comment on the site stated that the campaign had been suspended “due to inappropriate behavior, including threats and menacing behavior.”
    Neighbors said Matthew’s mother moved him to the country to keep him out of trouble. He did not cause any in the several years he lived there, they said.
    There is a fair amount of new info at this link

    I'm just shaking my head. I think I lead a sheltered life. This dude was a manager of a super market, so I suppose many people would think he was ok.

    It might have been addressed already and I didn't catch it, but was there any follow up on the tip that came from Washington and Lee University ( Lexington ) about the MH suspect being spotted ?
