Charlottesville, VA– Just passing the month mark, the disappearance of Morgan Harrington from the John Paul Jones Area located on the UVA campus, leaves us with more questions than answers. Part II

The Faces of Her Facebook

Help Find Morgan Harrington was developed by a few concerned individuals interested in spreading the word about Morgan’s disappearance and boasts over 30,000 members. Not all posts are welcome.

NelsonIn particular, a member by the name of Nelson Kane was recently banned for posting very detailed hypothesis scenarios that sparked a firestorm of interest in the self-appointed athlete scout. His posts were deleted at the request of Law Enforcement who admit tasking two officers with monitoring the web for such activity in Morgan’s case.

Additionally, Mr. Kane reached out to several individuals on facebook as well as the Harrington family’s site in attempts to speak to the family directly and request an interview. The Harrington’s were made aware of the concern for such requests by sources close to the investigation.

 He has recently changed his facebook drastically. Nkoldfacebook

Mr. Kane, a member of the family owning the longtime furniture store of the same name in Charlottesville is also a UVA alumni and season ticket holder. In addition to UVA, Kane also claims to have attended Virginia Tech on many of his many social networking profiles. He also fancies himself as somewhat of a Rock band critic.

On his site, which he has maintained Nkane1since 2001, Kane chronicles his trips to scout mostly High School basketball and football athletes. In an effort to make his site more interesting (his words) he details the travel experience, routes, times and in some cases photos of his visits to High Schools mostly within a few hours driving distance.  

Very early on in Morgan’s case, explored the idea that perhaps the double murder of VT freshmen David Metzler and Heidi Childs on August 27th should be investigated as a possible link to Morgan’s case simply because they attend the school and Morgan and Heidi bare a remarkable resemblance to one another.




As far as very odd coincidences go, the location of Nelson Kane’s scouting foray the evening of the August 28th could not be more relevant.


Kane scouted the game at Jefferson Forest High School. The very Kane0828School Heidi Childs graduated from a year earlier. Unlike most of Kane’s other journal entries of his athlete accolades, there is no mention of his travel experience to or from Forest High School so it is unclear where he left from, when he got there, or when he returned home. 

This is in no way an accusation that Mr. Kane had any involvement whatsoever in such a heinous crime, of course, but given his proclivities for leaving at all hours of the day and night his keen attention to travel detail and familiarity with the area: Perhaps he saw someone or something amiss in his trip that could help investigators.



On Saturday October 17th, Kane scouts a game, listens to the UVA football game on his way home and is home in plenty of time to make the concert.


Blink how do you know he was at the concert you ask? I do not. I do know he knows alot about security at the JPJ Arena, how to navigate the different lots near Uhall, and of course that there are blue portable lavatories next to Lanigan Field.

    hmm: That is interesting. And look at RP’s FB “pages”:

    * Interracial Dating
    * Let’s Find Morgan Harrington’s Killer(s)

    I recall early on looking at NK’s fb page and he also said he was interested in interracial dating. I think you’re onto something.

    I didn’t want to post this on the new thread and turn the conversation backward-Blink-I have been thinking alot lately- (since Morgan was found with broken Bones) about NK scenario of playful hitting turning very bad- Please tell me that I am reading too much into it again- and this person has been thoroughly checked out –

    No need to post this unless you choose to- but I would appreciate a confirmation that I am making a big deal out of nothing… Thanks Blink hope you are feeling better.

    While I do not think it likely that NK is directly involved, to my knowledge, nobody has been ruled out, however, and I am of the opinion that more than a few individuals know who was “rumored” to be involved, so I don’t think I can answer you any differently than that.

    Thank you Blink- I wish I could say you squashed my fears but instead you have led me to more- If you can- tell me if I am interpreting your response correctly- The persons who are responsible for Morgan’s death, could have been aware of this scenario and/or several others- and possibly/likely objected Morgan to things that were talked about in these scenarios?- Is it your belief that Morgan was not killed quickly on the night of her disappearance?

    Again Blink, no need to post this and I understand if you can not answer – I can only imagine the thoughts that run through your mind, thanks for fighting the good fight Blink, may your dreams be peaceful.

    *subjected* not objected-

    I gave it a shot- thanks for answering what you could Blink- I am left to ponder these thoughts- Hopefully LE is on the trial and Morgan will have her justice- 241

    See you on the new thread-
