Metallica fan found dead

In mid-October a Metallica fan, Morgan Dana Harrington, went missing after a show has been found dead.

After many calls of support from the band who contributed $50,000 to information leading to her safety, the news was broke yesterday that police had discovered her body, one day after the family posted a blog still remaining hopeful.

Metallica posted the following:

Our most sincere condolences go out to the family and friends of Morgan Dana Harrington, the 20 year old Virginia Tech student who was last seen while attending our concert at the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville, VA. Sadly, Morgan’s body was found yesterday ending her family’s three month vigil hoping and praying for her safe return. Mere words cannot express the anguish and grief that we know her parents Dan and Gil are feeling, and our thoughts are with them.

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) 352-3467or

Our thoughts are with Morgan’s family and friends at this time.
