UVa student disappearance suspect possibly connected to other crimes

The lawyer for the man charged in a University of Virginia student’s disappearance says police haven’t told him what evidence they have against his client in that case or another young woman’s disappearance and death.

Jesse Matthew is charged in the disappearance of 18-year-old Hannah Graham, who remains missing.

Virginia State Police said yesterday that Matthew’s arrest provided a “forensic link” to the death of 20-year-old Morgan Harrington, who vanished while attending a rock concert five years ago.
