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."

When Marc Klaas's 12-year-old daughter Polly was abducted from her bed in Petaluma, Calif., in 1993, he seemed to be coping well – until the second night after she went missing. "I got up and quietly left the hotel room, walked across the boulevard to a vacant supermarket parking lot, got down on my hands and knees and started screaming to God. I was out of my mind," he says. One of the few sources of comfort he had during those 64 days before his only child's body was found was David Collins, whose 10-year-old son vanished from a San Francisco street corner nine years earlier. Collins's support is something Marc has never forgotten. "I glommed onto him," Marc, 58, said. "He could relate to me. He never found out what happened to his son, but he was still standing nearly 10 years later, and that was huge."
