A Year Later, VT Student's Murder Remains Unsolved



    Famous Showdowns Between Outlaws and the Law

    Sunday will mark one year since the disappearance of Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington, and her murder remains unsolved.

    Harrington vanished after going to a Metallica concert at the University of Virginia. She got separated from her friends outside the arena and planned to find her own ride home, but never made it.

    Her body was found three months later in a remote field near Charlottesville.

    Three months ago, police tied DNA evidence from the crime scene to a 2005 sexual assault in Fairfax County.

    Harrington's parents were on the Today Show Thursday morning. "The case really has not moved much beyond what we found out when the forensic link was made," said Dan Harrington, Morgan's father. "We know that the case from 2005 is somehow connected to Morgan."
