Remains Of Hannah Graham Positively Identified

On September 13, University of Virginia student Hannah Graham disappeared after being seen in downtown Charlottesville, VA.  Although a suspect named Jesse Matthew Jr. was arrested and charged with abducting her with intent to defile, her whereabouts and whether she was still alive remained unknown.  Today, human remains were found this past Saturday on an abandoned property in Albemarle County, VA were identified as belonging to Hannah Graham.

As horrible as the above story is, it gets worse.

In 2009, a Virginia Tech student named Morgan Harrington was on the University of Virginia campus, attending a concert at the John Paul Jones Arena.  Afterwards, she went missing.  Her body was found about 5 miles from where Hannah Graham's remains were discovered five years later.  Police reportedly have evidence tying Matthew to Harrington's murder, as well as to a sexual assault which took place in 2005 in the city of Fairfax, VA.  Matthew has been indicted in that case.
