Crime & Punishment: New evidence in the Hannah Graham case may not mean new hope

The man who police believe was the last person to see missing UVA sophomore Hannah Graham is now behind bars. Investigators say the arrest of Jesse Matthew led to a "significant break" in the 2009 death of Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington. She vanished after attending a Metallica concert on the UVA campus. Jean Casarez looks at what is being described as a "new forensic link" between the two cases.

The Hannah Graham case has brought new attention to other cases of missing young women. Randi Kaye looks at two who disappeared within 60 miles of each other.

    Not sure why the media have so widely used the computer generated sketch of the suspect from the 2005 rape. The original, hand drawn composite from the Fairfax assault that has been tied to Morgan Harrington seems to also raise questions as to resemblance to Matthew. Here is the 2010 article from when the Harrington and Fairfax cases were first connected. http://www.readthehook.com/67132/morgans-killer-fairfax-case-connection-offers-hope-fresh-fear
