Murphy And Harrington Families Want To Catch A Killer

Members of a missing Nelson County teenager’s family have joined forces again with the parents of Morgan Dana Harrington. The mother of 17-year-old Alexis Murphy says she came to a Saturday rally at a Lynchburg park to show solidarity with the family of Jamisha Gilbert. Gilbert is the 18-year-old whose body was found last week in a wooded area of Lynchburg. Dan Harrington, whose daughter was murdered in 2009, says he and his wife Gil have a bond with the Murphy and Gilbert families. He has told Lynchburg area media outlets when people are picked off and murdered, it’s a loss for all of us. When Dan and Gil Harrington visited their daughter’s memorial at the Copeley Road Bridge in October (pictured), they added pictures of Alexis Murphy.
