Human remains found while investigators search for missing Virginia student

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Police say they have found human remains that could be those of a University of Virginia sophomore who has been missing since Sept. 13.

Police Chief Tim Longo and others told a news conference Saturday afternoon further forensic tests would be conducted to confirm that the remains are those of Hannah Graham

Thousands of volunteers had searched for the 18-year-old Graham in the weeks since her disappearance.

Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr., 32, has been charged with abduction with intent to defile Graham.

Virginia State Police have said Matthew's arrest provided a "forensic link" to the 2009 unsolved murder of Morgan Harrington, a 20-year-old who also went missing from Charlottesville.
