The Metallica/ Virginia Tech shirt
It’s been four years since Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington disappeared from a Metallica concert, only to be found months later dead in a field less than 20 miles away from where she vanished.

Her killer remains at large, but efforts to bring the killer to justice endure.

According to reports, a T-shirt that Metallica had sanctioned has raised $61,000.

The shirt boasts the words “Enter Sandman” as well as the Virginia Tech logo. That money was donated in Harrington’s name to a medical scholarship fund at Virginia Tech.

It’s a scholarship that will go to a Virginia Tech Carillon student for the first time this year.

“I was overwhelmed and humbled that they chose to support us in this way,” says Harrington’s mother, Gil. “This is kind of how you triumph evil. People do the right thing, the generous thing, the wonderful thing. They have really been lovely to us.”

You can still get the $20 shirts here.
