The same man who abducted and killed Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington after a rock concert in Charlottesville last year may have sexually assaulted a woman in Fairfax City in 2005, state police said Thursday.
The link between the two cases provides the first significant break in the Harrington case, which made national headlines.
State police said there is a forensic link between the two cases. Sources said the cases are linked by a DNA match. Both are unsolved.
In September 2005, a Fairfax woman was abducted and sexually assaulted as she walked home from a Giant supermarket. City of Fairfax detectives created a composite sketch based on the victims description of the suspect. However, the suspect may have changed his appearance over the past five years, state police cautioned....
