I’m Mollie Halpern and this is Wanted by the FBI.
The 20-year-old was last seen after a Metallica concert in Charlottesville, Virginia back in 2009. Her remains were later found outside of the city in a remote field. Captain Timothy Lyon of the Virginia State Police says this case has been a priority since day one.
Timothy Lyon: This crime we feel was horrific in nature and what we want to do is bring closure to Morgan’s family. We want an arrest and that’s what we’re committed to doing.
Halpern: Morgan’s case is linked by DNA to a 2005 sexual assault in Fairfax City, Virginia.
Two enhanced composite sketches of the suspect are available to the public. Alasdair Mackenzie, the FBI’s Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the Richmond Division says…
Alasdair Mackenzie: We’re asking for the public’s assistance if they recognize the composite, be sure to call law enforcement. We want to take this individual off the street and keep him from re-offending in the future.
