When Morgan was growing up she only wanted to see the good in people…she was not naive by any means, but she was a kind and gentle soul, and was very trusting of people. She wanted to see only the beauty in the world, so she did ignore the dark side, she thought by staying away from sketchy people she would be able to avoid their dark side. I only wish now that I could have shown her, that in reality evil people that are capable of doing horrible things, things like were done to her, do live among us, and they do sometimes look like our neighbors, and they can still cause great harm…
Ponder this for a moment. More than 211,000 homicides that have been committed since 1980 remain unsolved – a body count greater than the population of Des Moines, Iowa. That figure is not readily apparent in the U.S. Department of Justice’s annual estimate of killings considered cleared through arrest, but if you do a little digging you will read that Scripps News reveals it. And the sad truth is that homicides are less likely to be solved today than they were 40 years ago. So unlike the TV shows that are so popular today – you know the ones that show murder cases solved in 60 minutes – in reality that does not happen very often – in fact if it does happen it is front page news.
There are states that don’t even report their homicide statistics to the federal government so those numbers are not in the statistics. In fact, in 2015 a serial murderer was finally arrested…he had been actively killing since the 1990’s. Now that is the reality that this country faces. We need law enforcement agencies and all states to accurately report their homicide cases and we need a national database so we can have a fighting chance of catching these monsters.
Our beautiful, sweet Morgan was then gone without a case – a victim that died during an active felony stalking investigation, her death said to be a mystery the day she died by the sheriffs, and yet there was NO actual investigation other than a autopsy with false information, false information that was never corrected when brought to the coroner’s attention. So Morgan’s murder is not even a number in the cold case statistics, but the evidence proves she was murdered, so how many REAL cold case murders are there in this country? It could be even more staggering than the statistics show.
I believe this is how murderers get away with murder, and this is why we have so many unsolved cold cases in this country – with the number growing greater every year. And don’t think for one moment in time that all murderers are older, creepy looking men…no, they come in all ages, genders, and looks. They can even be the innocent looking teenage girl down the street.
