Sales of shirts by Metallica have raised tens of thousands of dollars for the Morgan Dana Harrington Memorial Scholarship

The shirt has "Enter Sandman" on the front, a reference to the band's hit song, and "Jump VT Jump" on the back.

Proceeds from sales of the shirts have so far generated $56,000 for the memorial.

Harrington was last seen alive four years ago at a Metallica concert at the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville. Her remains were found on an Albemarle County farm in January 2010. No arrests have been made in the case.
