Morgan Dana Harrington, 20, disappeared in October 2009 while attending at Metallica concert. It was held at the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville. Nine months later, state police announced that forensic evidence tied her death to a 2005 case in Fairfax County involving a 26-year-old woman. A man named Jesse Matthew was eventually charged in Harrington’s murder.

Because he has been denied a plea, Randy Taylor will not cooperate with the investigation.

Alexis’s family had refused any plea because they wanted to prevent any other victims. Because of their sacrifice and because they still want answers, they are all the more dependent on tips or leads from the public.
