Slain Va. Tech Student's Mom Sues Security Company

Morgan Dana Harrington

The mother of a Virginia Tech student who was killed after she attended a Metallica concert at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville is suing a security company.

Gil Harrington filed the $3.5 million lawsuit last week in Roanoke County Circuit Court against Regional Marketing Concepts Inc., doing business as RMC Events. RMC provided security at the Oct. 17, 2009, concert.

Morgan Harrington, 20, disappeared after she left the John Paul Jones Arena and was denied re-entry. Her remains were found in January 2010 in a hayfield in Albemarle County.

RMC Events President Dan Schmitt told The Roanoke Times http://bit.ly/npcyAK that he couldn't comment on the lawsuit, but he said the “no re-entry” policy is common practice for events like the Metallica concert.
