Metallica Helps FBI Search for Virginia Killer
Metallica helps the FBI in their quest to locate a Virginia killer, according to the Associated Press. The band recently released a public service announcement, asking their legion of fans to come forward with any information they may have regarding the murder of Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington. The woman was last seen at a 2009 Metallica show in Charlottesville, Virginia. Her remains were later discovered at on a farm about ten miles from the venue.
“Remember, any information no matter how small you might think it is — could be that crucial piece investigators need to help solve the case,” James Hetfield says in the video.
In addition to the PSA, the FBI has released a composite sketch of the suspect, which has been plastered across the East Coast. The unidentified individual in the sketch is also a suspect in a 2005 sexual assault if Fairfax City, Virginia, which is roughly two hours away from where Harrington’s body was discovered.
Presently, the FBI and FBI and Virginia State Police have very few leads in the case, though they’re hoping the composite, as well as Metallica’s contribution, will help authorities with their investigation. Additionally, Morgan Harrington’s parents and Metallica are offering a $150,000 reward for information that ultimately results in an arrest.
