VIRGINIA- ‘God wanted’ them to find what they found.

The Chesterfield Sheriff’s Department sergeant who discovered human remains while searching for missing University of Virginia student Hannah Graham sat down with our sister station WTVR.

Sgt. Dale Terry told them his team had been searching when something came over him to check nearby properties. “I don’t know how else to explain it. Something inside me just told me to continue to look.”

Human remains were found behind a vacant home in a dried-up creek bed.

The discovery comes 35 days after Graham was last seen, on several surveillance cameras, in Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall area. That footage showed her leaving the Tempo Bar at around 2 a.m. on September 13, as well as a man — later identified by authorities as Jesse Matthew, 32, — following her.

On September 24, Matthew was taken into custody while camping on a beach in Galveston, Texas, some 1,300 miles from Charlottesville. He is the only person detained in connection with Graham’s disappearance, charged with abduction with the intent to defile.
