Police seize cab owned by suspect in missing UVA student case

The man at the center of missing University of Virginia student Hannah Graham's disappearance and charged with her abduction has been linked to at least one other unsolved case.

A source with knowledge of the investigation confirms to CNN that police recently seized a cab owned by Jesse Matthew. As previously reported, Matthew was working as a cab driver the night 20-year-old Morgan Harrington disappeared.

Police say the cab was found on a local farm, which could be meaningful. Harrington's remains were found on a farm outside of Charlottesville three months after she vanished and police have forensic evidence that also links Matthew to her case.

This is significant because Matthew is the last person to be seen with Hannah Graham who disappeared nearly three weeks ago.
Jean Casarez has been following the story and is Outfront.
