This is where Harrington was last seen. Her body was found three months later on a farm in Albemarle County.
To this day, her murder remains unsolved.
After her death, Harrington’s parents became activists for crime prevention and changes in law enforcement procedure.
Recently the case appeared on America’s Most Wanted. Virginia State Police say they have received several new tips after it aired.
