Police say they are confident that skeletal remains found on a Virginia farm are likely those of a Virginia Tech student who vanished after attending a Metallica concert in Charlottesville.
State Police Superintendent Steve Flaherty says an autopsy will be conducted to confirm that the remains are those of Morgan Harrington, who disappeared on Oct. 17.
The 20-year-old Roanoke woman became separated from friends after she left a concert arena and was denied re-entry.
The skeletal remains were found Tuesday morning by a farmer surveying his farm. The farm is about 10 miles from where Harrington attended the concert at the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville.
State Police crime scene technicians arrived at Anchorage Farm and are searching for evidence using a grid mapping technique.
