James Hetfield, frontman to Metallica, has teamed up with the FBI to help find a fan’s killer.
Hetfield recently made a public service announcement aimed at helping solve the murder of one of his band’s fans named Morgan Harrington. The 20-year-old was last seen alive in October of 2009, while attending a Metallica concert at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville.
According to the FBI, Morgan’s “remains were discovered the following January in a remote field on a farm in Albemarle County, Va.” The FBI has since discovered DNA evidence linking her murder to an unknown suspect that committed a sexual assault that occurred in Fairfax, Virginia, in September of 2005.
Authorities have now released Hetfield’s video, along with updated composite sketches of the wanted suspect. Currently, there’s a reward of up to $150,000 (Metallica is paying $50,000 of it) for information that leads to an arrest and conviction of the suspect that committed the young girl’s murder.
Fingers crossed we catch the person or people responsible!
