Morgan wakes up in the morning and we talk about her “bubble” from the night before. The bubble means she hit the text button on her phone and her phone sent me a bubble so I would know the exact time she heard the noise for my timeline and for the sheriff’s – I always thought it looked like most of these things happened at certain times of the night – with the occassional change of showing up in the yard dressed in black, following her in a car, and showing up on our front porch to punch in our code dressed in a hoodie at 4:30 am. A rock hit her window at 10:57 pm last night, according to the bubble. This morning at 5:10 am the alarm goes off. It was directly coupled with a video taken at that same time. A figure is caught on video running across Rhonda’s driveway (our next door neighbor on Morgan’s side of the house. The sheriffs department had the only copy because of a computer crash, and I wish I had not given up the only copy. A computer expert could not get the copy back, but Steve assures me he will be able to go back through the computer backup files and get another copy. I warned him you will not be understanding if he fails.
Morgan tells us that Keenan posted a 554 # and keeps sending FB messages back to her friend, and threatening him, and telling him to back off. Keenan is very vociferous about where the blame for the stalking belongs evidently. He is saying that the stalking was over 5 months ago. This of course is not true, because it started three months ago, that we know of. But then after reading stalking advice it could have started over five months ago, and he is right on the money about timing, but he is not right that it ended…it is still ongoing. We only know when we think it started. Only I would have loved to have been able to ask him how he knew all this. He is also saying the “cops” excluded him because he works all night, every night, and he is in Texas right now. (What he said about the ‘cops’ excluding him is absolutely false…as you can read on every post, since the beginning in August 2011 – his work hours, taken from the police reports, show the time of the stalking incidents compared to his work hours, showing he was not at work at those times…criminals lie and that should not be a shock to anyone).
OK, fact check, yes we have heard he is gone this week, from two different sources, and the detectives are at present telling us they are 100% sure he is the stalker and Morgan knows Keenan is the stalker. We are troubled by the sheriffs believing it is only Keenan, because Steve strongly believes that there are at least three different stalkers/terrorizers/bullies. He really wishes he knew who they all were, but he is only willing to say at this time that Keenan is one of them.
According to Morgan, Keenan has also recently told her friend that at the time of the stalking he was dating Brooke Harris. A private investigator that was volunteering his time had assured us the Keenan and Brooke had never really stopped dating in his best estimation – I guess it was just convenient for him to move out at that time since the sheriffs had been coming by her house to interview him. He had avoided them up till then and I guess it made sense to make up an excuse, like they ‘broke up’ so when he moved out suddenly no one would be any wiser… That very same investigator sat Steve and I in the back seat of his SUV, a while back, and said OK, I will now take you to the back door of City Market in El Jebel, where our man in question (Keenan) works – and then he did. After arriving he picked up his cell phone and mockingly said “Hey Jeff, out back having a puff, let me back in.” And he slapped his phone from hand to hand and winked at us. Steve and I thought we were being walked down a possible trail, and we looked at each other. “Simple”, Steve told me. “This makes perfect sense, now what?” And how are we supposed to convey this to the detectives?
But back to the past, Keenan was not finished with his version of events. He then went on to tell Morgan’s friend that if he had to guess it was Wiley, the kid that lived next door to Brooke, because the stalking started 3 days after he moved in. How would Keenan know the date the stalking started? We had not called the sheriffs until days later…no one, except the stalker, should have known at that time.
Another fact check is in order here, Wiley does not in the least bit match any images of the stalker, male or female, as yet caught on video or camera, and he moved into our neighborhood at least a month after the stalking started. Oh, and Keenan pointed out that Wiley had a “criminal record.” Not sure about that, Wiley always seemed like a nice kid, and perhaps Keenan should look in the mirror, eh? It is always interesting how guilty people are always trying to point the finger at someone else – they seem to think everyone else in the world is stupid, and can’t figure out that they are lying…I think it is sometimes called a characteristic of a psychopath. https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/wicked-deeds/201401/how-tell-sociopath-psychopath
Morgan thought this was very odd that Keenan told her friend about how he heard there was a video showing someone around the house on Tuesday night – the night he was gone. Keenan reminded her friend that “I was on my way to Texas on Tuesday.” I looked at Morgan and told her that this was just way too much of a coincident. As luck would have it, Steve and I had just not had the time to review all the cameras and update the information for the detectives at that time, so really, and I mean really – nobody should know about possible videos unless perhaps they were part of creating the video. Now the ‘march’ without noise, completely avoiding Morgan’s side of the house makes perfect sense. In case I haven’t told you yet, Morgan’s side of the house has a few surprises around it and that were avoided completely, made perfect sense to Steve. Someone knew what was there, and did not think they could make it down that side of the house without becoming ensnared. Stalkers, because they are always surveilling, always know what you are doing to try to catch them, but sadly, in most cases, they are always a step ahead.
Steve looked at me and said, “So Keenan, while on his way to Texas, knew all about the Tuesday incident? Right!”
Now I really feel strongly believe that it was nothing more than a set-up for an alibi for him, and of course he knew about it – what he doesn’t realize is that it was so obviously a set-up, as you could tell the person caught on the cameras was female, not male, and didn’t fit the description of the previous photos, and she was obviously texting back and forth behind the berm to someone before she started the last leg of the “march” around our house in order to get caught on every camera angle, as well as leaving the next mornings footprints – she was texting to ask if she should abort the mission as it had started to snow. This was a staged alibi and she was probably told that she had to still go through with it…unfortunately her footprints in the snow were still visible the next day and guess what? They came right out of the back door of her (Brooke’s) house and proceeded to our house and followed the path of the person caught on our video camera…so it’s not rocket science to know who is shown on that “alibi” walk.
We couldn’t wait for Detective Glassmire to get there, we knew his cameras would have had to have captured a full face shot or two of this person, and Keenan was so sure he had fooled everyone, he couldn’t wait to talk about it. Too bad we had not had a chance to tell anyone about how it actually happened yet. It turns out my sudden decision to not tell Elliott is going to pay big dividends. But then, for the first time, the detective had to delay coming over and then when he finally did come to check his cameras he said the batteries were dead – in both cameras – they didn’t capture any pictures! How does that happen? Lucky stalkers or ???
Email from Garfield County Sheriff Detective Glassmire on November 4, 2011 – this is in response to Morgan seeing Keenan, in broad daylight, waiting for her as she is driving down the hill from her college classes – she was so traumatized over this that one of her male classmates started to walk her to her car after class.
Subject: RE: case #11-20197
I do know that a little over a year ago Keenan’s father did have an address over in that area. I don’t know if that is where Keenan is living. We didn’t see his car there last Sunday. We should know more in the weeks following the pretext phone call. After the phone call I plan to start interviewing everybody close to Keenan, including Keenan.
Let me know if anything else comes up. Don’t hesitate to call dispatch and let them know what you are hearing outside your windows, that you are going to bed (if you are sleeping or getting ready too go to bed). And that if a deputy has time could they do some directed patrol in the area. That will probably prevent them from coming to your door or calling you, but they will hopefully patrol the area and/or walk around the house. The patrol deputies have also been asked to search local areas for suspicious vehicles too. You can always let me know of the details the next day.
Also, I am going to send the same flyer to dispatch (Carbondale Police too) that i sent to patrol so they can also be aware of the investigation and hopefully head off the idea of you having to explain to them every time what is going on.
Thank you for the updates. Rob
Today is October 21, 2012 – And as part of the ongoing investigation we ran through Morgan’s Facebook up until her death. This was the first time in a long, long time. Steve had to walk out of the room, it is still too fresh of a wound for him. He said he thought she was going to call on the phone any moment now and he could not take it. And then he apologized to those at the house, sifting through the evidence. It’s so tough for me at times too but, you all give me such strength, and we have to be strong… for Morgan.
A phone number that had no real consequence a year ago has suddenly turned up to have real consequence. And another amazing thing has happened – Leesa, our lovely daughter-in-law, had long ago volunteered to be the responsible person for Morgan’s new FB page, Morgan’s Stalking. Steve thought it was too much for her, and didn’t want her to take the responsibility. I wanted to close the page down because after a nice start, it was attracting such negativity, and I was so busy with everything else I didn’t have the time for it. Only now, some friends of Leesa’s & Morgan’s have set up a plan with Leesa to manage the page, and continue to raise awareness, and honor the memory of Morgan. They are all so wonderful, and I can’t thank them enough.
As Steve and I move into the end of the story of Morgan’s life on the blog, and move into what came next, I can’t imagine any more load to carry. Thank you all so much for what you are doing, and you all know who you are…
