CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (WWBT) - This Sunday marks the one year anniversary of Morgan Harrington's disappearance.

Harrington was last seen leaving a Metallica concert in Charlottesville. The Virginia Tech student's remains were later found on an Albemarle County farm in January.

Detectives say DNA evidence leads them to believe the suspect is the same person behind an assault in Fairfax five years ago.

On Sunday a plaque will be placed in Morgan's honor on the bridge where she was last seen. Harrington's parents plan to be there for the memorial.
