Virginia remains identified as those of missing college student

Human remains found in Virginia were identified on Friday as those of missing university student Hannah Graham, and prosecutors are focusing on more charges against the suspect in her disappearance, authorities said.

Graham, a University of Virginia sophomore, was last seen on Sept. 13 in Charlottesville, site of the university. Searchers discovered the remains on Oct. 18 on abandoned property near the town, and Jesse Matthew Jr., 32, of Charlottesville, has been charged in her disappearance.

The disappearance shook the college town in central Virginia and drew national attention, especially after Matthew, the last person seen with Graham, was linked to sexual assaults and the disappearance of another woman.

The Medical Examiner’s Office in Richmond “has confirmed that these are the remains of Hannah Graham, 18, of Fairfax, Va.,” the Albemarle County Police Department said in a statement.
