Whenever I have been invited to be on a Podcast I have always been given a chance to talk about stalking in general in order to raise awareness. That it would revolve back to my daughter Morgan’s stalking and death is unavoidable and I believe it is very helpful in order to raise awareness about the dangers of stalkers.
The mistakes and shortcomings in Morgan’s case should not be lost in the effort to help others in similar situations. In telling her story as accurately as I could it has already helped countless stalking victims throughout the world, and while it is painful at times, I have no regrets, and I take pride in the accomplishments. Thanks to all of you who listened to these Blog Radio Shows and I encourage you to support victims of stalking, as it is a devastating crime.
As I read some of the comments from the last show that I was on I saw some familiar “anonymous” people making the same false claims they have been making for years. This is a reality that exists, they give no real identity, because if it is the mother, family or friends of the prime suspect in Morgan’s case, then the mistruths would become all that less believable. A website that we are now working on is growing to address all the real truth about Morgan with the REAL documents, I do work full time as a victim advocate, and while Steve helps me immensely, we only have so much time, and this is a big project. Our names will be on this website and we will stand behind everything that is printed on it, unlike the anonymous “others” making false statments out on the Internet.
It seems that Porphyria was the popular subject that evening, The FACT is our daughter Morgan was tested for many different things after being exposed to Carbon Monoxide, which hurt her health. One of those many things she was tested for was Porphyria, twice, long, long, ago and both tests were negative, and both tests were “possibly compromised,” so we discounted them. So, when the contracted forensic pathologist, who is responsible for Morgan’s autopsy, came up with Porphyria I asked him if this claim was due to something he found medically at autopsy, or through testing, his answer was no, he said, “She was tested in the past for it because she had it.” I am still mystified by his blind insistence. He told me that she was talking amitriptyline for her Porphyria, which proves she had it. Well (A) I told him she was most definitely NOT talking Amitriptyline, (B) I did not know Amitriptyline was even for Porphyria (it is not), and (C) she was never diagnosed with Porphyria. His answer was that amitriptyline was found in her blood, so she was taking it. Unbelievable! If he understood toxicology (we consulted an esteemed, highly regarded forensic toxicologist back east who could see from the results that she HAD NOT been taking it and it was a one time massive dose). The pathologist then admitted he did not know that much about Porphyria, so he would be open to talking to someone from a large hospital out on the coast that would see this condition far more often than he would. This became an exercise in futility as a doctor who treated Morgan became involved and tried to send him medical documentation showing she did not have Porphyria. An absolutely brilliant, and ever-giving doctor, as well as a professor many times over at the UCLA Medical Center Children’s Hospital, tried unsuccessfully to explain that Morgan could not have died in the manner the contracted forensic pathologist thought she had. He never listened to one word she said…so much for his being open to speaking with someone with more knowledge then him.
Other of Morgan’s doctors, and specialists jumped in, and all were unanimous in that this manner of death was wrong. Nothing changed, and later when I was threatened with a change in regard to the manner of death from natural causes to suicide, if I did not give up, I was assured by doctors that the contracted forensic pathologist could not do this. So, I was plenty shocked when he actually did change her manner of death from natural causes to suicide 8 months after his first false conclusion of natural causes. As a very concerned mother and parent I will traverse the trail before me until there is truth, because Morgan did nothing to deserve a complete lack of fairness, respect and dignity following her murder. And I did nothing to deserve the intimidation that is running rampant – I have always given facts and the truth about what really happened and no amount of intimidation will keep me from using my voice.
If you are interested the subject of Morgan’s “manner of death is covered more completely in this post. – http://wp.me/p2wvjS-14Q
