Joanne Harris used to live in New York City in an apartment complex next to Stefan Salvatore. One day she was killed, and her brother Jason Harris, assumed Stefan to be the killer. In his hunt he discovered that her killer was a vampire, and not Stefan, but his older brother Damon Salvatore.

She appeared exclusively via flashbacks in the A Darker Truth webseries produced by the CW as a prequel to The Vampire Diaries in 2009.
