At least two additional sheriffs' offices in Virginia are reviewing old murder cases to see if they are connected to the suspect in the disappearance of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham, ABC News is reporting.

Virginia State Police have already confirmed that they found "a new forensic link" between the 2009 murder of Morgan Harrington and Jesse Matthew, 32, who has been arrested and charged with abduction with intent to defile in the case of Graham's disappearance last month.

Investigators in the Campbell County Sheriff's Office and the Montgomery County Sheriff's office are checking if two open murder cases have any connection to Matthew.

Cassandra Morton, 23, was reported missing in Lynchburg on the same night that Harrington, 20, vanished in Charlottesville in October 2009. The two young women were approximately 60 miles apart. Morton's remains were found on Candlers Mountain in November of that year, while Harrington's remains were not found until January.
