ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) _ Laughs mixed with tears as students, friends, and family gathered to remember University of Virginia student Hannah Graham, whose disappearance two months ago prompted a massive monthlong search that ended in tragedy and criminal charges. Nearly 1,000 members of the community attended a celebration of life ceremony Saturday at West Potomac High School, Graham’s alma mater. Friends shared stories of Graham’s sharp, dry wit. Her parents thanked the community for its support. She was reported missing in mid-September, and her disappearance drew national attention and prompted an intense search effort. Last month, her remains were found in Albemarle County, a few miles from where she had last been seen in downtown Charlottesville. Thirty-two-year-old Jesse Matthew has been charged with her abduction. Authorities have also linked him to other crimes.
