RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The chief medical examiner's office in Virginia has determined that Morgan Harrington's death was a homicide.
The office said Tuesday that it has no further information on how the 20-year-old Virginia Tech student was killed.
Harrington disappeared Oct. 17 from a Metallica concert she was attending at the University of Virginia. Her remains were found Jan. 26 on an Albemarle County farm about 10 miles south of where she was last seen.
In the months after her disappearance, hundreds of volunteers and law enforcement officials searched the surrounding area. Investigators said they had not searched the pasture where the remains were found by the property owner.
