Jesse Matthew linked to 5th alleged crime

Jesse Matthew linked to 5th alleged crime

More shocking information is coming to light about accused kidnapper Jesse Matthew.  While he was a student at Christopher Newport University in 2003, he investigated for sexual assault.  The alleged incident occurred shortly after he left Liberty University, where he was accused of sexually assaulting a fellow student in 2002.

Cops say DNA links Matthew to the brutal October 17, 2009 murder of Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington, and that DNA links Harrington's murder to an unsolved 2005 sexual assault.  Now, police across the state are investigating the possibility that Matthew may be linked to several cold cases.  They're questioning his involvement in the murder of 23-year-old Cassandra Morton, who was last seen in Lynchburg, VA a week before Harrington's murder.  Morton's body was found in pieces months later, buried in a shallow grave off a mountain trail.  Police are also looking into the possibility that Matthew is connected to the murders of Virginia Tech students Heidi Childs and David Meltzer.  The couple was shot to death with a rifle near the Virginia Tech campus on August 27, 2009.

Who murdered 8-year-old Hiawayi Robinson?

Who murdered 8-year-old Hiawayi Robinson?

Police in Alabama are searching for a child murderer who remains on the loose.  8-year-old girl Hiawayi Robinson vanished after leaving her family's Prichard apartment on September 16 around 4:30 p.m. to go see her cousin, who lived just a flight of stairs away.  Around that same time, Hiawayi was captured on surveillance video buying candy at a convenience store 3 blocks away.  Investigators believe that was the last time the little girl was seen alive.  Her body was found 2 days later behind a nearby abandoned building.  An autopsy revealed that she was suffocated.

Though the 3rd grader's family reported her missing just hours after she disappeared, no Amber Alert was issued.  Police claim the guidelines were not met, specified that there must be belief that an abduction has taken place in order to issue an Amber Alert.

Did Jesse Matthew kill Morgan Harrington?

Did Jesse Matthew kill Morgan Harrington?

Police announced that they have found a forensic link between the man accused of kidnapping University of Virginia student Hannah Graham and the 2009 murder of Morgan Harrington.  Harrington, a 20-year-old Virginia Tech student, vanished after leaving a Metallica concert on the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville.  Her body was found a few months later in a nearby field.  Her killer was never found, but investigators did link DNA evidence in her case to an unsolved 2005 sexual assault.

Could 32-year-old Jesse Matthew have perpetrated all 3 of these crimes?  The nursing assistant is currently behind bars, charged with kidnapping Graham with the intent to defile.  She was last seen leaving a bar in downtown Charlottesville with Matthew on September 13.  Could this well-regarded member of the community be a serial rapist and murderer?
