In 2009 Morgan Harrington was separated from her group of friends and went missing following a Metallica show in Charlottesville, Virginia. Her body was recovered four months later in a field near the venue. She was last seen hitchhiking on a bridge October 17th 2009.
At the time Metallica offered $50,000 reward to help find her attacker, that reward has grown to $150,000 and as James Hetfield states in this youtube video "any information, no matter how small you think it is, could be that
crucial piece investigators need to help solve the case."
The FBI says DNA evidence links her case to an assault in Fairfax, Virginia four years earlier, and the bureau released an enhanced sketch of the a possible suspect in her killing. The suspect is described as an African-American male with black hair and
facial hair at the time of the 2005 attack. He is about 6 feet tall and was
believed to be between 25 and 35 years old at the time of the attack, making him
32 to 42 now.
