Harris was a graduate student Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia, where she studied clinical counseling, according to her mother. She'd recently returned from a trip to Budapest as part of a college course.

The mother of Harris told WUSA-TV that her daughter's death was "ironic" given that the boy who jumped from the overpass is likely one of the children that Harris was training to be able to help. She previously graduated summa cum laude from Towson University. She had an affinity for the outdoors and loved hiking, he said.

Police said a male individual had been a pedestrian on Cedar Lane and then landed on a vehicle traveling east on I-66.
