Harrington was 20 years old when she was last seen in October 2009 after leaving a Metallica show in Charlottesville. Her remains were found in January 2010 in a hayfield in Albermarle County. The FBI said a suspect in a 2005 sexual assault in Fairfax County has been forensically linked to the Harrington case.

Metallica recorded a public service video as part of a law enforcement publicity blitz to try to catch the killer.
