Remains discovered last weekend were confirmed to belong to missing, 18 year old University of Virginia student Hannah Graham. She had been missing since September 13. Authorities have been searching for her for weeks now, and they also have a suspect, Jesse Matthew, in custody who they believe to be involved with her disappearance. The remains were found last weekend on an abandoned property eight miles from where she was last seen on security camera footage.

"When we started this journey together we all hoped for a happier ending," the parents said in a statement. "Sadly that was not to be, but due to the tenacity and determination of (Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy) Longo, Hannah is coming home to us and we will be eternally grateful to him for this.

"We are devastated by the loss of our beautiful daughter," they added.

No charges have been filed against Matthew regarding her death, but he has also been forensically linked to the death of Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington in 2009, and on October 20th, was indicted on several charges linked to a 2005 sexual assault case. Investigators even believe that he may be linked to a string of murders and are currently looking to see if he is connected to other missing girl cases..

"The focus of the investigation now is to determine what charges will be brought and the appropriate time to make those charges," according to a statement from the office of Albemarle County Commonweath's Attorney Denise Y. Lunsford.

PopWrapped sends its condolences to Hannah Graham's family and friends.
