Search warrant reportedly reveals link between Jesse Matthew, Morgan Harrington


A new search warrant filed in the Jesse Matthew investigation reportedly reveals new links between the suspect and murdered Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington.

The search warrant for all of Matthew's cell phone records shows a Pantera t-shirt worn by Harrington the night she vanished had multiple DNA stains, according to NBC29, and says police used a woodent tip from a cigar butt in Matthew's wallet to link him to her.

NBC29 reports the warrant lists charges of first and second-degree murder against Matthew, though he has not yet been charged in the case. He's currently behind bars facing sexual assault and attempted murder charges in a 2005 rape in Fairfax and an abduction charge in the case of Hannah Graham, the University of Virginia student found dead earlier this year.
