Virginia State police said on Monday that forensic evidence has linked a man suspected of kidnapping University of Virginia freshman Hannah Graham to the disappearance of another college student.
Morgan Harrington, 20, was a student at Virginia Tech when she disappeared after attending a Metallica concert in 2009. Her body was found several months later on a farm in Albemarle County.
Her kidnapping and death have been unsolved, but now police believe Jesse Matthew, 32, had some kind of contact with her, WTVR-TV reported.
Matthew was arrested in Texas last week on suspicion of kidnapping with intent to defile 18-year-old Graham, who went missing earlier this month. Police identified Matthew as a man seen walking with her on surveillance video; she disappeared shortly after.
