Familial DNA helped solve a gruesome cold case…just like in the recent Golden State killer/night stalker case

We have all seen crime shows on TV – the ones that use DNA to solve some of the most difficult murder cases.  It’s pretty amazing.  Investigators that use their gut instincts and won’t give up, using great investigative skills, in combination with DNA, this all adds up to be an amazing combination.  The following link shows what it took to solve a case from 2002. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2017/01/23/the-daring-dna-hunt-that-cracked-france-s-gruesome-cold-case.html?via=desktop&source=twitter

I love reading stories like this – stories that show families that never gave up.  Stories that give us hope that justice will someday happen.  I would like to praise the investigators that stuck with this case.

I hope familial DNA will start being used in many unsolved cases – cases where the murderer does not have their DNA in CODIS. It could be a HUGE breakthrough in solving so many cases, and could help to stop serial murderers as well.

In a more recent case,

Another big step forward in solving murders In this country would be the implementation of a national database of cold cases.  It’s hard to believe, but it’s true – we have no national database of cold cases in this country.  There is no way to link crimes in different states to the same MO/murderer.  if the killer is arrested for another crime in a state like Colorado, where all felons must be tested for DNA, a match will be made, but very few states have this requirement.  For example .if DNA was found in a murder investigation in one state, unless the murderer’s DNA is in CODIS .  If they have never been arrested their DNA would not be in CODIS. And her is the problem…law enforcement is not required to report murder cases – so to think that a skilled and persistent detective could solve a murder if the murderer kept moving around while still

We need to get in front of more crimes happening to innocent victims and familial DNA and implementing a national database of murders (that law enforcement is required to report murders to) would be a huge step forward.

A match was made from the DNA profile from the Bennett and Smith cases. It has been determined that it was the same murderer.

Roy and Patricia Bowden murders (no signs of forced entry)

Couple gunned down in own home

Authorities also said there’s no signs of forcible entry at the home – this is the same reason the Garfield County Sheriffs used to say that Morgan’s stalker(s) could not have been in our house…what a bunch of BS – there are so many murders, rapes & kidnappings that have no visible signs of forced entry, does that mean a crime didn’t happen?  Nope – it does not!  In Morgan’s case her stalker(s) tried multiple times to punch in our front door code to gain access to our house.  Our house was empty between 6 pm – 8 pm the night Morgan was murdered.  Our dogs were locked up in the laundry room and I believe her stalker(s) came into our house and hid in Morgan’s closet until everyone went to sleep…then he attacked her, while she was asleep.  The act of a total COWARD!!!

When A Suspect Lies…

This was the supplemental report that went along with the recording shown on the Crime Watch Daily 4-part series https://crimewatchdaily.com/2017/10/24/suicide-or-murder-what-happened-to-morgan-ingram/

This interview was done on March 25, 2012 – over 3 months after Morgan’s murder.  They were still investigating the “stalking” at that time, not her suspicious death, because the pathologist listed her Manner of Death as Natural Causes, so there was NO investigation by the sheriffs.

Keenan Vanginkel was still the SUSPECT because he was involved in Morgan’s stalking – he had NEVER been cleared, and yet he still insists to this day, that he was CLEARED as a suspect in the stalking, right in the beginning of the investigation, before the murder…obviously that is another lie.  Morgan had identified him numerous times to the sheriffs and he is in the police reports as the “SUSPECT.”

When the Garfield County Sheriffs closed the stalking case in May of 2012 we were told if a suspect lies to them there is nothing they can do…seriously, we were told that by Detective Glassmire!  Can you imagine what the crime statistics in this country would look like if every law enforcement officer/detective believed that?  If that were the case there would be no need for jails, as most criminals do not admit to their crimes – it is the duty of law enforcement to investigate and prove that the suspect did the crime, not drop the case because the suspect won’t admit their guilt.  In this case we had more than enough evidence for the sheriffs to build a solid case, but the detective said they were told to close the case by their superior…I wonder who the “superior” was he was referring to and what was the reason that “superior” needed to have this case closed.  That same detective pounded on his chest and said, “It doesn’t matter what Detective Alstatt and I believe in here – we have to do what we are told.”

If you haven’t already – please click on the blog link below, “Do parents cover for their children – even when they murder?  Keenan, as well as both his parents, and stepfather, and others have gone on to LIE about where he was the night of December 2, 2011…why?  His story keeps changing. At first he told others that he was out of state – but now we have his work hours from the police report, so we know that was a lie.  Then he has said he was at work when she died – another lie.  Morgan’s body shows she was murdered BEFORE he got to work at 2:00 am in the morning on the 2nd.  He says he has proof he worked that night because the City Market cameras show he was at work…another twist on the truth.  I am sure the cameras show him at work after 2:00 am, but not before…so again, there goes his alibi.  Ask yourself – why would an innocent person have to change their story over and over again, and have others lie for him as well?

 

Do parents cover for their children – even when they murder?

And now, I’d like to tell you the FACTS about how Brooke’s parents tried to cover for their daughter, who was also involved in Morgan’s stalking, and I believe she had a part in Morgan’s murder as well.  There are a lot of FACTS that go along with this, so I will make it a separate blog…stay tuned, I will try to get that blog out as soon as possible.

Easter Memories: Morgan Coloring Eggs…Happy Colors

eastereggs

Wishing everyone a very happy Easter…this is a picture Morgan took of the colored eggs we all did on her last Easter on this planet.  Morgan really loved celebrating Easter – I never really wondered why it was her favorite holiday, but now I think I know.  Here is the last Easter post she posted…

4-24-2011

It’s about truth.

It’s about being honest with the individuals that were blessed to be in your life because they deserve it. Hurt them, let them down, enlighten them, as long as you were honest you couldn’t have been more perfect because when you’re not, when you try to protect someone from the truth or try to gain something from their ignorance, you’re robbing them from their own truth, from their own chance at finding the things in this world that make them even happier than your illusion, you’re building a life of lies not just for yourself but for everyone around you.

If things don’t work out between two people, if they don’t go as you want or had planned, that is infinitely better than leading a life of senseless mental slavery.

This world is beautiful and unfolding and the only thing you control in it is how honest with yourself that you are.

Happy Easter, beautiful children.

 

 

Colorado Needs a Criminal Justice Revolution!

THIS IS WHAT COLORADO NEEDS – A criminal justice revolution!

Transparency that will lead to accountability – no more flying-blind…victims will see more justice.

The Florida Legislature has passed a bill that would bring unprecedented levels of transparency to the criminal justice system.
