The beautiful, shiny, loving Morgan Dana Harrington was a true original. She brought much joy and fun to family and friends for 20 years. Her light and potential were extinguished when she was abducted from a Metallica concert 10/17/09 in Charlottesville Virginia.
Morgan’s skeletonized body was found at Anchorage Farm, Albemarle County on 1/26/10. The person(s) responsible remain at large, presumably still in the Charlottesville area. We ask that any information that might help in the investigation of this case be directed to: Virginia State Police tip line (434) 352-3467.
Our family has developed several educational projects that honor Morgan and provide service to our community, our world:
The Morgan Harrington Educational Wing , OMNI Village, Ndola , Zambia has been completed and was officially dedicated in a joyous ceremony 12/1/2012. Fundraising efforts moving forward are centered on equipping a library/computer space for the school.
