Things are not looking good for Jesse Matthew. The Washington Post / Associated Press are now reporting he is linked to attacks on 4 women. Up until now, a lot of these connections were speculation on the part of 3rd rate media outlets. Now it’s coming from direct sources / police and FBI:
— Hannah Graham, 18. Matthew is being held on a charge of abducting with intent to sexually molest this University of Virginia student, who disappeared early Sept. 13, after witnesses saw them walking off together in downtown Charlottesville.
— Morgan Harrington, 20. Police said Matthew’s arrest in the Graham case provided a “forensic link” that represents a “significant break” in slaying of the Virginia Tech student, whose body was found three months after she disappeared at a Metallica concert on the Charlottesville campus in 2009.
— Unidentified 26-year-old woman. The FBI said in 2012 that DNA evidence matches Harrington’s killer with the rapist of a woman who was grabbed from behind while walking home from a grocery store in northern Virginia in 2005. The man fled when he was startled by a passerby, police said.
— Unidentified university student. Matthew was accused of raping a fellow student at Liberty University, where he played as a defensive lineman on the football team from 2000 to 2002. The prosecutor said the complainant declined to press charges.
