The Dr. Phil episode of Morgan’s Stalking aired this week in Australia. No Forensic Psychologists wrote in to us this time, so those who did share their thoughts can’t testify in court about their opinion, but they can certainly have one. And once again everyone thought that B.H. either was – not being truthful, had something to hide, was involved, or some combination of all three.
Steve was always amazed that we went on the show and really presented no evidence at all. Yet the overwhelming conclusion of viewers not related to K. J. VanG. Who wrote into the blog or submitted a tip over the tip line was that – that girl on the show, B.H. was guilty of something, it was obvious to all.
A real trial with witnesses and evidence is of course a bit more complex, but I’d have to say I too was surprised that just the demeanor of B.H. on stage was enough for most everyone to make their decision. I wonder what will happen when they watch her being cross-examined before a judge and then they have to decide. Steve and I have to think actual confrontation on the false statements will tip the scales quite a bit more for Morgan.
This very possibility of “looking bad”I would think drove the decision of K. J. VanG.’s lawyer to not let him appear on the show. Wasn’t that great by the way? The 20 second clip of their statement that they regretted not being on the show. Well wait, wouldn’t the truth for not being on the show be that you feared the potential criminal exposure of your client(s). Wouldn’t that be the truth? And if you haven’t done anything wrong, why do you fear potential criminal exposure, still have not figured that part out. Really, how does that happen?
Back in the states the favorite statement B.H. made was “where’s the proof”, wow did that set everyone off. She was completely slammed in making, repeatedly, I guess, what was a clear indicator of guilt. I guess if you had thought you committed a crime and it was a perfect crime, no proof, no chance of ever being caught, a statement like that would make sense.
But then maybe there is no such thing as the perfect crime. I don’t think the detectives were fooled, they were told to stand down by superiors and they obeyed. Victims we were long before Morgan’s death, but after she was killed the word victim took on a horrible new meaning. Our Sheriff Lou Vallario conceded that we were the real victims, and I really hope he meant Morgan too, because she was the biggest victim of us all. Horrific stalking, a horrible death, life snatched from her at age 20, and then to be labeled a suicide, when everything she believed in, and everything she stood for was quite the opposite of someone who would commit suicide. Evidently an entire story is all right there in the lab results. There just has not been anyone in Garfield County willing or able to read it yet.
Meanwhile, I calmly as I can wait and agree with a group of doctors from many related specialties who say my daughter’s death was anything but natural causes, and certainly not a suicide. They say it and I just could not agree more. The most revealing thing about this, and I say it with all the sarcasm I can muster, is that the doctors who have these opinions actually have reasons, they explain why in detail as to what they based their opinion on. And then they are in agreement with one another’s opinions – all agree that is, except for Dr. Kurtzman, some have tried to talk with him about his opinions, he just won’t answer, and now if you are not a forensic pathologist he won’t talk to you at all, because, well lets just leave it at that. It’s really quite sad, the corner he paints his profession into. Aren’t forensic pathologists supposed to figure out the cause of death, and then if it is suspicious at all then put the manner down as undetermined until it can be investigated?
Things are not as complex as he is making them, they seem very simple taken one at a time, once they are really explained, for instance the amount of Amitriptyline in Morgan’s blood was a huge, overkill, lethal amount, but the Amitriptyline in her gastric fluid is not even enough to be lethal, and in Dr Kurtzman’s opinion, when he changed her manner of death to suicide he stated that the Amitriptyline in her gastric fluid was the lethal amount that killed her – this is not what killed Morgan.
Dr. Kurtzman (8 + months after Morgan was murdered) changed her manner of death from natural causes to suicide based on a new test with Morgan’s gastric fluid. He stated the Amitriptyline in her blood was insignificant on the first PER, but then changed her to suicide after the gastric fluid was tested, but get this, the Amitriptyline that was in her gastric fluid wasn’t enough to kill her. Morgan supposedly killed herself by intentionally taking 18 – 25mg. pills. First, we now know you can never tell how many pills someone took. Nobody can calculate that number. So why do we have a guess as to how many pills she took? What was the reason? Then is gets better, 18 – 25mg pills is 450 mg., simple math 18 X 25 = 450. And it is not a lethal dose, yes you read that right, 450 mg. is not a lethal dose. Once again I welcome you to find a qualified expert who will testify that 450 mg. of Amitriptyline is a lethal dose. You’ll have better luck trying to find a qualified expert that believes, and will testify that you can’t take 18 pills and not regurgitate at least part of them back up. Yes, that is just another issue in Morgan’s death. So he says she took 18 pills when no one can say how many pills anyone took, did not regurgitate any of them back up, as is most common with Amitriptyline, and she had the full 450 mg., which is not a lethal dose, and that is how she supposedly committed suicide, according to Dr Kurtzman.
Ever hear of the body of evidence? Morgan’s body was cremated, but guess what? They have all the samples that were taken at autopsy and tested, and we have the results of those tests. Doesn’t matter if the test results were read incorrectly at the time – there are experts that can and have made sense out of them, and they are part of Morgan’s body and they are evidence, and they do tell a story…a story of murder.
