Morgan Harrington’s parents mark anniversary of daughter’s discovery in Albemarle farm


January 26 marks one year since the body of Morgan Harrington was discovered on a 750-acre Albemarle County farm. To commemorate the occasion, Dan and Gil Harrington, parents of the slain 20-year-old Virginia Tech student, will meet tomorrow with reporters at various significant sites—from the Copeley Road bridge, where she was last reportedly seen alive, to a remote corner of Anchorage Farm, where her body was found more than three months after she disappeared.

"This will be the first time Dan and I have been allowed on the site," writes Gil Harrington in an e-mail, "and we are grateful for the opportunity." Temperatures tomorrow may reach 50 degrees, a marked difference compared to last year’s chilly temperatures and light snowfall on-site.
