Metallica’s James Hetfield Still Aiding the Search for Morgan Harrington’s Killer
The tragic deaths of concert-goers can very understandably hit close for bands, and the October 2009 loss of Metallica fan Morgan Harrington has the group still doing their part to find the killer.
For those who don’t remember, Harrington went missing shortly after attending a Metallica show. When they heard about the case, the band used their public platform to aid in search for the missing college student. A little while later, Harrington’s remains were discovered.
Though two years have passed, the group is still aiding in the search for the killer. Singer James Hetfield has just filmed a video plea seeking further information as the killer is still at large.
In his clip, the singer states, “Back in 2010, our band offered $50,000 to help catch the person who was responsible for murdering Morgan Harrington. Since that time, authorities uncovered new evidence linking her killer to a similar assault to a woman in Virginia.”
The video shows a police sketch of the suspect, as Hetfield asks that anyone who recognizes the person or has information regarding the case to call the local police or submit their information online.
He adds, “Remember, any information, no matter how small you might think it is, could be that crucial piece that investigators need to help solve the case.”
At present, there’s up $150,000 reward for the capture of the killer. Hetfield urges anyone with information to contact the Virginia State Police tip line listed in the video.
