A security company is being sued by the mother of a Virginia Tech student who was killed after she attended a Metallica concert in Charlottesville.

Media outlets report that Gil Harrington filed the $3.5 million lawsuit last week in Roanoke County Circuit Court against Regional Marketing Concepts Inc., doing business as RMC Events.

RMC provided security at the Oct. 17, 2009, concert.

Twenty-year-old Morgan Harrington disappeared after she left the John Paul Jones Arena was denied re-entry. Her remains were found in January 2010 in a hayfield in Albemarle County.

RMC Events President Dan Schmitt told The Roanoke Times that he couldn’t comment on the lawsuit. But he says the ‘no re-entry’ policy is common practice for events like the Metallica concert.
