rape case. >> matthew of course the suspect in the hannah graham case is now charged with attempted capital murder, abduction, and sexual penetration for an attack in suburban virginia. debra alfarone is following all the developments tonight in charlottesville. >> and another bombshell for jesse matthew. again, it was unt long after police took him in to custody because of the attempted abduction of hannah graham that we learned so much more about him. we learned about a forensic link potentially to this 2005 rape and attempted abduction and murder in fairfax. we also learned about a forensic link to morgan harrington, a virginia tech student found murdered in 2009. today a lot has happened. we found out from the fairfax commonwealth attorney that a grand jury ended up indicting him for other charges that could just make you sick. >> the victim is grateful to

the lead detective who stayed in touch with her regularly over the course of nine years and promised her he'd never give up and he never did and i wouldn't expect less from him. so i think it's fair to say that she's grateful that the case will go forward to whatever resolution it comes to. >> and back live here in charlottesville downtown mall area where hannah graham was last seen. saturday they found human remains about 10 miles from this spot. we're still waiting to find out what the medical examiner is going to say. certainly no new facts have come out about the case since that discovery. we're all waiting but to ease speculation we've been talk to a lot of people on twitter. i wanted to bring up some of those questions now. mike mcgregor asked if there was any indication that hannah graham or jesse matthew were in the area where the human
7:02 pm
remains were found. maybe there were pings from their cell phones. at this point the honest answer is we don't know. police are not answering our questions. they're really not getting back to us and when they do they say no questions until this forensic investigation is done. the tip, however, we've learned was called in by a landscaper that was working in that area. the next tweet i got today, loretta asked whether they would automatically initially refer to dental records to make a quick i.d. on the human remains or if they would later test the dna. that's another great question. basically we don't know at this point whether they did or didn't. the medical examiner also not talking at this point. it's all part of the forensic investigation. i will tell you that we have spoken to several forensic experts and they say that's basically what they do. they do look at dental records first to make a quick i.d. or to cancel someone out, then go to the dna. that dna could take weeks. we're still waiting on that. another thing i do want to point out, we did speak to people at the hannah graham tip line today.
