Case Of Slain METALLICA Fan Spotlighted On TV Series 'Disappeared' (Video)

The case of slain Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington was spotlighted on Investigation Discovery's "Disappeared" TV series on April 18.

Her parents were interviewed for the program, as were investigators, and a woman who saw Harrington the night she disappeared.

You can now watch the show in three parts below.

Harrington, 20, of Roanoke County went missing from a METALLICA concert in Charlottesville on October 17, 2009. Her skeletal remains were found January 26, 2010 in an Albemarle County hayfield nearly 10 miles south of where she was last seen.

No arrests have been made.

Morgan's father Dan told local TV station CBS 6, "This may sound strange, but we have found some peace in [the discovery of Morgan's body]. It wasn't the outcome that we wanted but we know now where our daughter is and there is peace in that."

Her disappearance led to national attention and an extensive search. METALLICA offered $50,000 for information about her whereabouts, in addition to the $100,000 reward that had been offered by her parents.

In a statement posted at their official web site, called "The Loss Of A Fan," the band wrote in part, "We are profoundly saddened by the news of the discovery of Morgan Dana Harrington's body . . . Mere words cannot express the anguish and grief that we know her parents Dan and Gil are feeling, and our thoughts are with them."

The band's message added, "If you have any information at all about Morgan's death, please contact the Virginia State Police at (434) 352-3425 or the UVA Police at (434) 352-3467 or [email protected]"
