Confirmed: Remains Are Metallica Fan Morgan Harrington

One tragic chapter closes, another begins. Virginia State Police on Wednesday confirmed that the human remains found in a Virginia hayfield earlier this week have been conclusively identified as belonging to Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington, 20, who went missing from a Metallica concert in Charlottesville on Oct. 17.

Her parents, Gil and Daniel Harrington, now say whoever did this to their daughter must be captured and tried in court.

"At least we now have some peace and we're able to have some closure today," Daniel Harrington said Wednesday, reports The Washington Post."We now need to find the person who did this, and we will not stop until that person is brought to justice."

The Harringtons believe their daughter was abducted from the concert by someone familiar with the area, and said that the condition of Morgan's remains show that she probably died shortly after she vanished. "This is not a random place that someone came upon accidentally. This is known to someone here," Daniel Harrington said.

"For the first time in 101 days, I am not thinking every minute, 'What is he doing to my daughter now? What is he doing to her? What is she having to endure?' " he said. "She was a long time in that field. I am happy that she was not alive long, enduring unspeakable things."

Authorities have yet to determine how Harrington died or even if she was murdered, though law officers are treating the case as a homicide.

Among the ways Harrington's parents hope to remember their daughter, they said, is by possibly initiating a national campaign to safeguard college campuses. "We can figure out how we can honor Morgan and remember Morgan, and maybe make it a safer place for all," said her father.

On the Metallica Web site, the band extended the following message: "Our most sincere condolences go out to the family and friends of Morgan Dana Harrington ... Mere words cannot express the anguish and grief that we know her parents Dan and Gil are feeling, and our thoughts are with them."

Who killed college student Morgan Harrington?
By Mike Celizic
Someone abducted and murdered her 20-year-old daughter, police believe, but Gil Harrington doesn’t really care about punishing the perpetrator. She just wants a killer taken off the streets before he can cause another parent the pain she has felt.

“I am concerned and determined that he be caught for safety reasons, because this was not the first bad thing that this man did. Abduction and murder is not your entry level into a life of crime,” Harrington told TODAY’s Meredith Vieira Friday via satellite from her home in Roanoke, Va. “He’s done bad things before. He’s upped his game, and he’s likely to do something bad again unless we catch him.”

‘Horrific three months’
Gil and her husband, Dan Harrington, were speaking out three days after the skeletal remains of their daughter, Morgan, were discovered in a pasture some 10 miles from Charlottesville, Va. Three months earlier, on Oct. 17, 2009, Morgan had gone to Charlottesville with friends to attend a Metallica concert.

A desperate search is still underway for Harrington, who was last seen near the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville, Va., at a Metallica concert on Oct. 17.

Her parents held back tears as they pleaded for the return of their youngest child and only daughter.

"If Morgan is out there and hears us," said Harrington's father, Dan Harrington. "Please come home."

Harrington and her friends arrived at the University of Virginia campus from Virginia Tech Saturday for a Metallica Concert.

The first opening act, metal band "Lamb of God", took the stage at 7 pm. Police say just before 8:40 pm Harrington left the concert to have a cigarette outside, but left her ticket inside.

Friends in the arena phoned her and she said not to wait up for her and that she'd find her own ride home.

That was the last time anyone spoke with Harrington. Her parents reported her missing Sunday afternoon.

Word of Harrington's disappearance has left students shaken.

"It's just kind of a shock to realize that somebody's actually gone missing," student Ania Griffin said to CBS News.

Metallica released a statement last night asking fans: "If you or anyone you know shot video footage or took photos of the concert or audience, please check to see if there is anyone in your photos who might resemble Morgan."

A candle light vigil is planned for Morgan at her former high school in Roanoke, Va. on Thursday.
