On October 17, 2009 the Harrington’s lives were forever changed when their beautiful daughter, Morgan, came up missing from a Metallica concert she attended in Charlottesville, VA. The country took notice, assistance poured in from all over, but her lifeless remains were not found until January, 26, 2010 in a remote field in Albemarle County, VA on Anchorage Farm. Morgan was taken from this world just as she was becoming a woman recognizing her potential.
Crime Wire welcomes Dan and Gil Harrington for the hour to discuss the progress in Morgan’s case, and to let listeners know how they can become actively involved in preventing the next tragedy. Join the show for Part I of a two part series with the Harringtons.
For some, it might be the end of the story, a resolution, but until those who took Morgan Harrington’s bright light from this world are brought to justice, the Harrington family will continue to seek that the scales of justice to be balanced. In the meantime, they carry on in Morgan’s name, carving her legacy into a world which will never know all that she had to offer.
The Harringtons are building a legacy in Morgan’s name in several ways. A scholarship has been set up at Virginia Tech where she attended, an educational wing is being built in Zambia by Orphan Medical Network International (OMNI), and a multi-media campaign titled “Help Save the Girl Next Door” to raise awareness about the vulnerability of young women to predators and to offer support to other victims’ families.
Help Save The Next Girl is aimed at educating young women about personal safety, encouraging community vigilance & providing resources for victim families.
