VA Police: Remains Likely Missing Virginia Tech Student

State Police Superintendent Steve Flaherty says 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, Virginia, woman became separated from friends October 17th 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 in Charlottesville.

    Security has to watch out for the people that are in the concert. They are still busy even after everyone has entered the arena. The bottom line is she should have known she couldn't get back in. There is no way the arena or the band is at fault with this. People with your kind of thinking are what is wrong with America. You feel that rules don't apply. Well, they do. If the sign says no re-entry--that means--NO ONE CAN COME BACK IN. Get it? This was not a 5 year old separated from her parents. This was an adult. No one could have predicted this outcome but the evil person(s) who did this. Quit blaming the arena and band.

    To the family and friends of Morgan, I am so sorry for your loss of a loved one. I pray that faith will get you by in your time of grief and sorrow. I pray that through all your tears you can find happiness in the good memories of times gone by with her. I pray you find comfort in each other to stay strong and faithful. In the darkness of evil upon this world, may the light of Christ find us and guide us. My sincerest and deepest condolences for your loss.

    She was an adult that could read. She shouldn't have exited if she wanted back in. There will be no policy changes. No one will sue and if they do they will lose. The arena, security and band have no blame or fault in this. It is a tragic case that will likley never be solved and it is sad but it is unreasonable to blame the arena or anyone associated with it.

    The Venue didn't kill her and she was an adult.. it's HER fault she didn't follow the rules! Get real! The only person to blame is the sicko that ended this girls life entirely too early! As far as Metallica.. they put up a 50K for her return or information leading to it.. what have you done?

    ok SARS, most likely the band was playing and most likely there wasn't a large crowd lined up down the street waiting to get in. I think the arena personnel/security were being difficult to deal with. Hey, if she didn't have a stamp most likely she did have half a ticket stub showing that she paid to get into the concert arena. They'll change their policy somewhat due to the high profile case. Would you let her back in after you checked her bags etc.? Who in their right mind would ignore the fact this girl didn't need to be separated from her friends and remain outside where danger & criminals thrive?

    It is no ones fault except for the sicko who did that to her. You can't blame the band nor the concert's security. EVERY SINGLE concert I have EVER been to had a strict no re-entry policy- it's not just Metallica's policy. Im sure no one was thinking, "Oh, we're not going to let this girl in and some deranged person is going to come and hurt her." Come on WITN commenters- seriously?

    OutsideLookingIn & US citizen- The article doesn't say anything about a hand stamp. It states at that arena there are numerous signs posted that you cannot re-enter. This has become the policy at most arenas, ball parks, etc. Most places do some form of security checks now upon entering. These people have more to do than check & re-check people because they keep coming in & out. It doesn't sound like the arena nor the band are at fault. She was a VT student so I'm sure she could read the signs. The fault is solely that of the evil person(s) that did this.

    Ah yes ... let's sue someone. The American way to all our shortcomings.
  • by US citizen for now Location: Washington on Jan 27, 2010 at 11:17 AM
    I agree OutsideLookingIn, whomever wouldn't let her back inside especially with a stamp on her hand should be held accountable. or better yet the management at the arena. I'd be knocking their socks off in a lawsuit if I were her parents.

    This is not the fault of the band or the venue! This is the work of an evil person and I hope they will caught and held accountable.
