CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (WWBT) -Jesse Matthew, suspected abductor of University of Virginia sophomore Hannah Graham, is now in custody. Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo was joined by Special Agent Adam Lee from the Richmond field office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation to announce that Matthew was arrested in Texas, "by the grace of God and the good work of the Galveston Sheriff's Office." Longo said extradition from Texas is now underway, but said it's not clear why Matthew headed to that part of the country.
