A message from #TeamMorgan

I received the comment below from a supporter that read about Morgan’s case right here on this blog, many years ago.  She has been following our quest for justice this whole time and she is one of the many who I call “TEAM MORGAN!”  The love and prayers we have received over the years have kept our family pushing forward, and I thank every single one of you – all those who have stuck with us throughout these 6+ hard years.

I also would like to thank those, as she said, “Good people who are working hard for justice.”  Those people she is referring to, are amazing people – people who have worked in law enforcement their whole lives, because they want to make a difference.  They want to help find justice for the victims of murder, and they want to catch the “bad guys.”  Our family has been extremely blessed to have these angels, who wear badges, on our side.  I hope one day I will be able to name them, but for now they say they do their best work behind the scenes, and that is exactly what they are doing.

COMMENT TO THE BLOG: “When 19 yr old Morgan Ingram’s mother, Toni, began keeping notes on the stalker incidents and calls to the Garfield County, CO Sherriff in 2011, she never dreamed it would turn into this story that would still see her adding to it 7 years later. Morgan would be 26 now, and most certainly would be a happy and successful young woman…instead, a psycho stalker took her away from her loved ones. That man is still walking free today. Toni and Steve, her parents, have worked tirelessly every single day since December 2, 2011 to try to change that…there is no reason in the world that the man who took their youngest daughter away from them should still be walking the streets of Colorado, or ANY street, for that matter. The only place he should be walking is in the halls of a prison, or pacing in a prison cell.”

“I have prayed for justice for Morgan since 2012. Please read her story http://morganingram.com/wordpress/?p=389, and please pray for Toni and Steve Ingram…pray that light continues to shatter the darkness, and that those good people who are working hard for justice, may continue on and be successful. Morgan deserves nothing less!!!!”

Where Murders Go Unsolved…does this sketch look familiar?

Does this sketch remind you of anyone?

The the national “clearance rate” for homicide in 2015 was 64.1 percent. Fifty years ago, it was more than 90 percent.

https://www.npr.org/2015/03/30/395069137/open-cases-why-one-third-of-murders-in-america-go-unresolved

University of Maryland criminologist Charles Wellford says, “Americans should also understand that while the national rate is in the 60’s, the local rates vary widely. But because the FBI doesn’t publish local agencies’ numbers, these differences are often invisible to the public.” So local law enforcement’s reporting of their homicide stats is not always correct https://www.publicsource.org/why-is-the-fbis-count-of-local-homicides-wrong-some-police-departments-arent-properly-reporting/

And even with those homicide stats being under reported there are many more homicides, like Morgan’s murder in Garfield County, Colorado, that never get listed, because they are never investigated as a murder – because of staged crime scenes, among other reasons.

If our country is going to get ahead of the murder crisis in this country and get murderers off our streets, there needs to be a governing agency overseeing local law enforcement – one that can look into suspicious deaths that local law enforcement, in some cases, refuse to investigate.  There needs to be an over-site committee, one that citizens can contact with evidence that a suspicious death could be a possible homicide. Then that committe can make a qualified decision as to why a suspicious death hasn’t been investigated and if an investigation is needed.

 

In this world there is much more good than bad…

People wonder how I can still believe there is much more good in this world than bad.  Sometimes I wonder that myself.  There have been days that the pain and grief from losing Morgan is just too much, and I feel like I can’t go on another day, then I realize giving up is something that isn’t in my blood – I can’t and won’t ever give up. Is it because a mother’s love is so strong that it transcends death?

So many times I want to scream and lash out, but my heart reminds me that that won’t change anything – only the discovery and illumination of FACTS will lead to justice for Morgan. So no matter how depilating the pain is that I feel I need to push through it and continue on. I know this world can be very cruel at times, but no matter what has happened in the past, I keep running into amazing, caring people who want to help – so many people in all walks of life; in law enforcement, the judicial system, forensic experts & criminologists, private investigators, other co-victims who have lost a loved one, writers, people in the media, parents I have never met, young adults who I have never met, other victims of stalking, folks in the military, Morgan’s friends, my friends, relatives, #TeamMorgan, and all those reading this blog (over 7 million to-date), and strangers I run in to on a weekly basis…people are upset and saddened about what happened to Morgan and they all want to see justice.

All those people are the reason I can still get up in the morning to fight another day…my gratitude for all these wonderful people can never be put into words – if you are one of these people please know you are all in my heart, and I will never forget that you all are the force behind the push for #JusticeForMorgan – our family could never do it without your support.

And that is why I believe there is more good in this world than bad…because of all of you!

 

Her name is Morgan – please don’t forget her…

Morgan was always finding beautiful and happy things to photograph, wherever she was…she loved life and we all miss her terribly!
