Important to focus on this: where did Graham and Matthew go after they left Tempo?

PX8314903USA-VIRGI_3049121bGraham and Matthew were last seen walking away from Temp restaurant at 1:45am on Saturday, September 13 toward the Downtown Mall. Did they turn left, in which case others might have seen them walking along the Mall, or did they turn right toward the Pavilion? Or did they continue straight up 5th Street? Also, might anyone have seen them at Lucky 7 on Market, the only place around the Mall open after 2am? I find it hard to believe that they left Tempo and walked toward the Mall and that no one else saw them after that. Spread the word! Did anyone see them after that? Speak up!

Exclusive from Coy Barefoot: The Hours Before LJ Met Hannah

Did you see Hannah Graham or Jesse Matthew on the DTM in the hours after 1:00am on Saturday, September 13? Please consider speaking up if you did. Here’s the most detailed account of the hours before Graham disappeared:

“He kept trying to put his hands on my legs, above and below the knee,” the young woman says. “He’d been way too aggressive all night, putting his arm around me, picking me up, putting his hands on my legs. I looked at him and told him to keep his hands off of me.” They were in Tempo Restaurant on Fifth Street in downtown Charlottesville. It was shortly after midnight, in the early morning hours of Saturday, September 13.

The woman is a 25-year old resident of Charlottesville. The man is 32-year old Jesse “LJ” Matthew, who was arrested September 25 in Galveston, Texas on a charge of Abduction With Intent to Defile in the case involving the still-unexplained disappearance of second-year University of Virginia student Hannah Graham.

Hannah was last seen by an eye witness walking with LJ Matthew in the early morning hours of Saturday, September 13. She appeared heavily intoxicated, the witness told me, slouched against him, not quite able to walk on her own. They were seen together outside Tempo, the same restaurant where just about an hour before, another woman had told him to get his hands off of her. I ask that young woman what one thing she remembered most about that night. She thinks for a moment and says with a steady stare, “That he creeped me the fuck out.” MORE

“I’ve been playing violin since I was 5…”

“I hate to say I’m 37 years old. I’ve been playing violin since I was 5, so if you do the math, I’ve been playing for 32 years. I started as a kid, and then I started playing professionally in college in New York City, and then at the University of North Texas. I’m here in Charlottesville performing with the Ashlawn Opera Festival, which is held at The Paramount.”
