Arrest Warrant Issued for Jesse L. Matthew for Traffic Violation, Person of Interest in Case of Missing Hannah Graham
An arrest warrant has been issued for Jesse L. “JL” Matthew, the person of interest in the disappearance of missing UVA student Hannah Graham. The arrest warrant is not for his connection with the case of missing Hannah Graham, but instead for a traffic violation for reckless driving. Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo said at a news conference Sunday that Virginia State Police have issued warrants for Jesse Matthew on a charge of misdemeanor reckless driving. Police Chief Longo went on the say, “I believe Jesse Matthew was the last person she was seen with before she vanished off the face of the Earth because it’s been a week and we can’t find her. I’ve made no mistake about it. We want to talk to Jesse Matthew. We want to talk to him. We want to talk to him about his interaction with this sweet, young girl we can’t find.” 18 year old Hannah Elizabeth Graham has been missing since September 13, 2014 in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Jesse ‘LJ’ Matthew, POI
An arrest warrant has been issued for a person of interest in the disappearance of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham, but he is not being sought for anything to do with the case.
Charlottesville, Va., police said today they are looking for Jesse L. Matthew, 32, on two counts of reckless driving, because he sped away from the police station Saturday after showing up there and asking for a lawyer.
Police say Matthew was seen driving at a high rate of speed, before he evaded capture by authorities monitoring his whereabouts.
Matthew is still a “person with whom we would like to talk to about the whereabouts of Hannah Graham,” Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo said.

Charlottesville police have identified the person of interest in the case of missing University of Virginia student Hannah Graham as Jesse ‘LJ’ Matthew. In a press conference on Friday, police revealed they had identified a person of interest in the case, but they did not release his name at that time. Police call him a person of interest, they have not referred to him as a suspect nor is he charged with any crime related to the Hannah Graham case. Police say they have had contact with him but formal questioning has not taken place.
Jesse ‘LJ’ Matthew has confirmed he met the 18-year old in Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall and bought her drinks, but says she never got in his car. She went her way and he went his. Hmm, sounds an awful lot like he just left her on the beach, doesn’t it?
