Undeniable Facts AND “Consciousness of Guilt”

Michelle M. Garcia, Director, Stalking Resource Center said, “Stalking is a pervasive, dangerous, and – far too often – lethal crime.” And it was in our daughter Morgan’s case – Morgan lost her life to her stalker(s).  
This was not a case of “Ding Dong Ditch,” like so many people associated with her stalkers would like to characterize it as.  No, it was the systematic terrorization of our family, that ended in the murder of our daughter!  
Morgan was murdered during an ACTIVE INVESTIGATION into her FELONY STALKING.  Only 4 days before she was scheduled to appear for an in-person, on camera interview, with Detective Megan Alstatt of the Garfield County Sheriff Department, at the same time that suspect Keenan Vanginkel’s work hours were scheduled to be collected – and the suspects knew. We were told that the sheriffs were getting close to making an arrest in the stalking case…but this is always the most dangerous time for a victim of stalking, and for Morgan it was lethal.
These are FACTS, not fiction…these are not accusations – it is the truth about what really happened. 

Ever since the stalking starting in August 2011, we have heard the denials by her stalker(s).  Their denials have been constant, always changing, and totally disgusting, but not unexpected.  This is what criminals do to try to take the “heat” off of themselves.  
First it was the main suspect, Keenan Vanginkel, telling the detective that he didn’t even know who Morgan was, and wasn’t stalking her…what a shock (sarcasm) – he lied – he knew who she was, and he was the main suspect in the police reports.  The sheriffs knew it was him before we ever knew it was him.  Then after Morgan’s murder he changed his story multiple times, from, “I wasn’t one of the ones that did this to her” to “I wasn’t even in the state when it happened” (but he was – read the police reports that show he clocked into work at 2:00 am the night she was murdered, after she was already dead, then stating, “I was at work at the time, so I couldn’t be involved,” then he went full circle again, telling everyone, “I wasn’t even in the state when it happened.”  Now why would he constantly change his story?
Then the other suspect in the stalking case, Brooke Harris, stated in-person to us, that her “boyfriend” (Keenan) had been exonerated, and there was video evidence…this was right after our video cameras caught a female (who looked like Brooke, and both Morgan & I believed it was Brooke) on the “alibi walk around,” as we called it, when Keenan was out of town.  At the same time she was telling us this, she was looking at her two friends, who were standing next to her, demanding, in a whisper for them to “Shut UP.” And if you are wondering, yes, we told Detective Glassmire about this encounter at the time, but it’s not in the police reports – it’s missing, like so much more.
I just recently learned about something called “Consciousness of Guilt.”  It is a type of circumstantial evidence used in criminal trials by prosecutors, suggesting that the defendant knows he or she is guilty of the charged crime.  Here are a few of the most common types of consciousness of guilt:
*False statements and lies  
*False alibi
*Concealing or destroying evidence
*Witness intimidation
All 4 of these I know the suspects have engaged in – so why, along with all of the stalking evidence we had, along with all the medical & scientific evidence we have, will the Garfield County Coroner & Sheriff never allow Morgan’s case to be investigated?   That is the real question here…

The Voice & Giggles of Love…You Can Hear Morgan’s Voice

I can still hear Morgan’s soft, sweet voice, as well as her laughter.  Here is a short recording that I found on her laptop, after she was gone – it was recorded during the stalking.  Throughout that horrific 4 months, we all kept trying our best to keep going, to have a life, and do all the things we used to do…it was hard, but the 3 of us tried.  Why?  Because we loved each other and didn’t want anyone or anything to change us.  But they did – they ended Morgan’s life, which changed us all forever.

This the recording Morgan made herself on her cell phone.  It is just a short recording of us goofing off.  She wanted to record me saying, “I Toni Ingram…,” but we kept laughing so hard I couldn’t finish what she wanted me to say.  You can hear Morgan say, “Alright, come on…” and then laugh.  We could never finish it because we were both laughing so hard.

I miss those times so much and it hurts…but I am so happy we had them.  I would never exchange all those moments, in the short 20 years that Morgan was in my life – never for anything else in the whole world.  I love her and miss her so much – life is, and never will be the same.  How could it be?  It never could.

When you have a child that has been taken from you forever, there will always be a hole in your heart that can never be filled – this is why there will never be closure for us – yes, we will continue to push forward for justice for Morgan, but closure…that will never happen, the pain will stay with our whole family forever.
