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…

No sign of forcible entry…does that mean a crime couldn’t have been committed?

Two nights before Morgan’s murder, there was a burglary next door to our house, (with a report by the Garfield County Sheriffs, and an investigation done) – with no sign of forced entry.  I would not have even known about it except for the fact that 45 minutes after the sheriffs had left our neighbor’s house, we called to report another stalking incident, and they told us it would take them awhile to return, as they had just arrived in Rifle, after being in our neighborhood because of a report of a robbery, and now they had to drive all the way back to our house.  The next morning we reviewed our cameras – the cameras had recorded the sheriffs, with their flashlights, looking all around on the ground outside our neighbors house, and then leaving.  Then our cameras caught one officer, that came back to our neighborhood after we called, looking on the ground outside Morgan’s bedroom window – then shining it up towards their wildlife camera (the one the sheriffs had mounted right in-between her 2 bedroom windows) and then he pointed his flashlight, momentarily, onto the roof…he then left.  Again, there was no police report about this stalking incident or patrol officer investigating it – why?

The house that had been robbed that night was the same house where the back door was found unlocked months earlier during Morgan’s stalking – our next door neighbor’s house. At that time the sheriff deputy, investigating yet another stalking incident at our house, decided to call out a warning, and then enter the next door neighbor’s house with his gun drawn. No one was in the house when he entered.  Our neighbor’s house was never left unlocked, so how was it now unlocked? How was someone getting in without any sign of forced entry?  Other empty houses in our cul-de-sac had doors locked, then unlocked during Morgan’s stalking – this was frustrating to the officers…no one knew who was doing this. This is true – this did happen, and this SHOULD be obvious to anyone that there was someone living in our neighborhood that could get into people’s homes without any sign of forced entry.

There were many attempted break-ins into our home during Morgan’s stalking and yes, I do believe her stalker(s) did eventually gain access into our home before her murder.  Even with all the security that celebrities have, their stalkers have gained access (without any signs of forced entry) into their yards, roofs, and homes.

If you do a search over the Internet for murder cases that have had no evidence of forced entry, you will find many cases.  There are also many, many cases of home thefts, with no sign of forced entry.  So ask yourself this…if a victim of an active felony stalking case (Morgan) is found dead, under suspicious circumstances, so an autopsy is ordered, BUT the sheriffs say they did not see any evidence of forced entry, even after many attempts that had been made to unlock our key-coded front door – does that mean it is impossible that Morgan was murdered?  No!  What a crock…

Here is another horrific murder that happened years ago in Colorado.  It is still unsolved.  There was no forcible entry into their home either, as well as a few other cases that law enforcement believe are connected to this same case.  They believe it was a possible serial murderer.  http://www.9news.com/news/crime/colorado-cold-cases-the-bennett-family-murders/400296946

Here is another story…Ex-boyfriend hiding in the attic stalking his victim in her South Carolina home. She “felt” someone was there, but her children thought she was delusional. She wasn’t – her intuition was notifying her loud and clear. Her stalker had been living in her attic for approximately 2 weeks. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/…/woman-finds-ex-boyfriend-li…

And another story…stalker hiding under the bed…A 32-year-old valet became obsessed and started stalking his victim. At some point, she left her keys unattended, and he swiped them and made copies. He then returned the keys without her noticing. So much for no sign of breaking and entering! Anyway, here is one news report about the arrest http://www.washingtonpost.com/…/…/12/01/AR2005120101592.html

Another stalker hiding in the attic in Modesto, CA. His victim had a restraining order against him, but that did not stop him. http://sacramento.cbslocal.com/…/sheriff-man-arrested-afte…/

So frightening – intruders living in someone’s home without being detected. Stalking victims are always afraid when they leave their homes, they fear that when they return their stalker may be there – and they have every right to worry. Here is a story from 2013 about J. Lo’s (Jennifer Lopez’s) stalker acting like a house guest. Ms. Lopez even had security guards at her home during the time her stalker slept on the coach in her pool house, did yard work and even posted on Facebook with pictures. Beyond frightening…if this can happen to a stalking victim that has security guards then people have to understand why stalking is extremely serious and this is why victims of stalking become hyper-vigilant. http://abcnews.go.com/…/alleged-stalker-john-dubis-found-li…

There were many ways someone could have gotten into our home, even with the 6 cameras we had outside – there were many holes in the coverage, and that happens.  We did not have any cameras pointing at our doors, because at that time we were trying to get a picture of someone approaching the house to get a clear picture of their face for a conviction.  If the cameras had been pointed at our doors then we would have had a picture of their backs entering our home – and in retrospect that would have been great, although it would not have saved Morgan.

The night of Morgan’s murder we did not have a picture of someone entering our home, but we do have a video of the person running from Morgan’s side of the house and ducking behind our neighbor’s truck.  I wish with all my heart we had just had an alarm system installed in our home at that time…most likely that would have saved her that night, but with stalkers you never know where or when they will strike so you always have to be one step ahead and hyper-vigilant.  It is not a sustainable way to live – that is why the law reads:
