RICHMOND, Virginia – A television show's segment on the slaying of Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington is generating tips for investigators.
WRIC-TV says Virginia State Police received six new tips after"America's Most Wanted" aired the segment on the investigation Friday.
Harrington was last seen in October 2009 after she left a Metallica show in Charlottesville. Her remains were found in January 2010 in a hayfield in Albemarle County.
The FBI has said a suspect in a 2005 sexual assault in Fairfax County has been forensically linked to the Harrington case.
Metallica recorded a public service video as part of a law enforcement publicity blitz to try to catch the man.
