DNA evidence links the suspect in the disappearance of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham to slain Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington
 
BY FRANK GREEN

DNA evidence links the suspect in the disappearance of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham to slain Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington, according to a law enforcement source familiar with the investigation.

Earlier Monday, Virginia State Police announced that the arrest of the suspect in the Graham case has provided a "significant break" in the investigation into the 2009 slaying of Harrington. She disappeared after leaving a concert at John Paul Jones Arena on Oct. 17, 2009. Her remains were discovered on an Albemarle County farm three months later.

"For the past five years, the Virginia State Police has been aggressively pursuing the investigation into the disappearance and death of 20-year-old Morgan D. Harrington of Roanoke," said Corinne Geller of the Virginia State Police.

"Last week, the arrest of Jesse L. Matthew Jr., 32, of Charlottesville, Va., provided a significant break in this case with a new forensic link for state police investigators to pursue. There is a still a great deal of work to be done in regards to this investigation and we appreciate the publicís patience as we move forward."

Geller declined to comment beyond her statement, but a law enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation confirmed to The Times-Dispatch that the DNA was a match.
