For those who aren’t familiar with the case, Morgan Dana Harrington was a 20-year-old Virginia Tech student whose disappearance on October 17, 2009 initiated one of the largest searches in Charlottesville, Virginia’s history. Sadly, her murdered remains were found 3 months later on Anchorage Farm in Charlottesville. It’s now been 3 years and the young woman’s homicide remains unsolved.

A Facebook user posted a status yesterday morning which said that behavioral and geographical crime scene specialists have convinced Virginia State Police and FBI that Morgan’s killer was familiar with the territory where her remains were found in a small clearing near a tree-lined creek.
“They did not feel they would be discovered in bringing her here,” A crime scene specialist said. “The location is not something a person unfamiliar with this area is likely to find on a whim.”
