Virginia State Police say they are now pursuing a link in the case of missing University of Virginia student Hannah Graham and the death of Morgan Harrington.
In a statement a state police spokeswoman says that last week's arrest of Jesse L. Matthew Jr. provided a significant break in the Harrington case with a new forensic link for state police investigators to pursue.
Harrington disappeared during a rock concert at the John Paul Jones Arena. Her body was discovered months later in a field miles from where she was last seen.
