RICHMOND, VA (AP) - Metallica has posted its condolences on its Web site to the family and friends of Morgan Harrington, a fan whose remains were found three months after she disappeared while attending the band's concert in Charlottesville.
The remains of the 20-year-old Virginia Tech student were found this week in a remote farm field about 10 miles from John Paul Jones Arena, where the band played Oct. 17. The cause of her death has not been determined.
In a statement posted Wednesday on Metallica's Web site, the band said it was "profoundly saddened" by the discovery of Harrington's remains and said its thoughts are with her parents, Gil and Dan Harrington.
Morgan lit up a room when she walked in. Her presence embodied love and light to all she met.
To honor Morgan and to show our support and love for Dan, Gil and Alex, there will be a candlelight vigil beginning at 7 p.m. Friday, January 29, 2010.
If you are in the Roanoke area, you are invited to join friends and family gathering outside the Harrington's home. And for others, please light a candle and join us in spirit and in thought, embracing the light and love of Morgan Harrington.
