    JLM Charged in Morgan Harrington murder

    Here's a new thread specifically to discuss the Morgan Harrington murder.

    Evidence links Graham-Harrington cases, woman who worked with suspect Jesse Matthew ‘shocked’

    Harrington’s remains were found on a remote farm the following January. Investigators eventually linked her case, through forensic evidence, to a 2005 unsolved sexual assault in Fairfax. Chan said she was 15 years old and living in Fairfax when that incident occurred.

    Investigators once again used forensic evidence to create a link — this time to the man charged with abducting missing UVa. student Hannah Graham.

    “We never really heard back from any of those cases and just to hear that connection existed it was really hard to hear,” Chan said.

    We know that Morgan's shirt was not found with her body and it sounds like that is the case for Hannah too. I need to go refresh myself on MH's murder, but IIRC her shirt was found first, then her body. Correct?

    Correct. Shirt was found in November 2009, Morgan was found end of January 2010.

    Correct. Morgans shirt was found a few weeks after her disappearance in Charlottesville @ 15th and Grady IIRC.

    Yes, but the shirt was not confirmed as Morgan's until the following April. (I will go back to find link).

    Given today's charges in the 2005 Fairfax rape case, & the previously established forensic link with MH's murder, might it be safe to speculate that more charges may soon be forthcoming (re MH)?

    I think it's just a matter of time. Since the person that killed Morgan and the Fairfax rapist were the same person, we just need to wait untile they charge him also for Morgan's death.

    Edit: grammar correction

    I was just wondering about when JM might be charged in the MH case. Seems like the Fairfax case could come first. I can't imagine the logistics and how stressful it must be for LE and the prosecuters to do everything perfectly so JM doesn't get off on some technicality.

    Just jumping in. I followed MH case daily and joined the website created by her family back in 2009-2011. I am not so sure it will be that easy to prove JLM murdered Morgan. Since he drove a cab during that time he can always claim he gave her a ride somewhere and that could explain away presence of his DNA. I think a murder charge for Hannah Graham will be easier to prove since he is caught on video as the last person with her. Just hoping there is good solid DNA evidence with Hannah to put JLM away for life. What a relief he is off the streets, but so sad for at least 2 families we know who have lost their only daughters and sisters.

    Unless they found new evidence in his apartment, such as Morgan's jewelry.

    If a=b and b=c, then a=c.

    I'm keepng my fingers and toes crossed that will apply here through the forensics, DNA primarily.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    I keep coming back to this. JLM seems to be a collector so it honestly wouldn't shock me if he did have her jewelry since it wasn't found with her body. Maybe I watch too much Crime TV but I can't shake the thought of MH's jewelry being found with HG. It's weird but ever since we learned of the forensic link between JLM and MH I can't get that scenario out of my head.
