Jesse Matthew, the suspect in custody for the abduction of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham, has been indicted on charges related to a 2005 rape in Fairfax.

Forensic evidence links Jesse Matthew to the 2009 disappearance of Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington in Charlottesville, which had previously been linked to the Fairfax rape, officials said.

Meantime, the man who called in a tip that led to the discovery of human remains behind an empty house in southern Albemarle, says that it was the sheer number of vultures that caught his eye.  Hawes Spencer reports.

    I don’t understand this interview. The interviewee saw 30 or more vultures and he knew there was a massive hunt going on for Hannah Graham, but he didn’t call 911 right away? Did he not know how close this spot is to the farm where Morgan Harrington’s body was found? If I recall, it was vultures that caused the farmer to go investigate a remote hayfield, thinking there might be a dead cow, in the Harrington case. What could be so important in the interviewee’s life that he would wait hours and hours to call in the vulture sighting? Did I miss something?
