Justice for Morgan!


If I hide my head in the sand does that mean nothing bad ever happened?

Sadly at times this is so very true ūüôĀ ¬†It’s hard for me to understand why people don’t want to see the obvious truth that lies right in front of their eyes, but I guess many people have studied the “why” and have come up with their own studied ideas about this occurrence.

Nietzsche (below) was one of Morgan’s favorite philosophers. ¬†He said people need their illusions.

‚ÄúSometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed.‚ÄĚ Nietzsche

Below is a¬†good article¬†that explains why some people would rather believe a lie than look at the ugly reality of a situation. ¬†It’s very sad to me that people feel like this, but some do. ¬†Many times the truth hurts, and most people would rather live a lie than have to face the truth. ¬†I am not sure how they do it. ¬†For me I would have loved to believe our precious daughter Morgan had died from natural causes vs. being sexually attacked, beaten and bit, then murdered…but then the truth to me was more important than being spared that pain. ¬†So when the evidence and the facts started to reveal that she was in fact murdered, I allowed that searing pain in, then sucked it up, and pushed forward to make sure Morgan will receive justice someday. ¬†My husband Steve & I continue our push to have justice served to the ones that did this to her, and we will never give up.

‚ÄúViciousness is part of the world we live in, some of us choose to ignore it with the rationalisation of wanting only positivity to flow our way. How selfish we have become! That the pain of others has become a hindrance to the fulfilment of our positive selves.‚ÄĚ ‚Äď Aysha Taryam

No suspect…really?

Morgan’s case was my first experience reading a police report, and let me tell you what jumped out at me, first it was how little the reports compared to what was really happening at the time (where were all the missing reports?), and then, how many times Keenan is named as a “suspect” in the police reports, as well as in the supplemental reports, in JUST our daughter Morgan’s felony stalking case, he is mentioned over 270 times in sixty skimpy pages. ¬†If you take out the pages with everything Morgan or I sent them, as well as Keenan’s hours from City Market, that’s how many pages are in their reports – only 60 pages. Never mind those reports actually report on about one-in-five of the incidents they came to investigate. ¬†So my question is, how do those reports so thoroughly miss what was happening?

Here is just one page out of the police reports, which are public record – and yes, Steve & I are listed as victims of the stalking as well.

So how in the world can anyone ever act like there was no stalking, and no suspect?  We requested, but did not receive the police reports until the new District Attorney intervened, on our behalf, and facilitated that for us in 2013.

We have been told the police reports have been put on some websites over the Internet (we ourselves have not shared them yet – we only have this website www.morgansstalking, this blog on the website, our¬†Facebook page¬†, and our Twitter site¬†, but if people are sharing these reports, don’t they read them?

Keenan Vanginkel¬†was listed as a suspect in Morgan‚Äôs stalking case (with her case number) on August 25, 2011 – Just over three weeks into her stalking, on the NICS (national instant criminal background check system) AKA his ‚ÄúGlobal Jacket,‚ÄĚ the sheriffs had reported him to all law enforcement, ¬†At that time Morgan did not even know Keenan was living in our neighborhood, Morgan did not know him, only saw him once before that, and had heard only bad things about him. ¬†We were not told at that time that he was a suspect. But without our knowledge, he was obviously already a suspect.

In emails from Det. Glassmire, I have his statement that he designed, and distributed¬†“flyers”¬†to all GarCo sheriff patrol officers, as well as Carbondale police officers, with Keenan’s picture, a picture of Keenan’s car, and information about the ongoing felony stalking case, involving Morgan as the victim. ¬†This was so they could keep an eye out for the suspect, and know if something was reported, that it was her case. ¬†Would you do this if you were a felony stalking detective that didn’t have a suspect? ¬†I have retained many emails, text messages, and voice messages from the detective. I even have emails where we ask, and were answered, about Morgan’s request to get a protection order against Keenan!

In the police reports: Brooke and her father James Harris, only days before Morgan was murdered, were interviewed by Det. Glassmire and “warned” that the following week the detective would be collecting Keenan’s hours, as well as doing an on-camera interview with Morgan.

Might criminals worry about the sheriffs getting closer to making a possible arrest?

The morning we found Morgan’s body, Brooke’s father, James Harris, called his client (a Pitkin County sheriff’s wife) to cancel his appointment with her. ¬†He left a voice message on her machine admitting that the police knew his daughter’s boyfriend was his neighbor’s stalker… just quoting what was put in the police report. ¬†

It is also noted in the police reports that the detective even collected all Keenan’s work records to compare to the incident reports, unfortunately he didn’t pick them up until after Morgan was dead. Why would he obtain only Keenan’s work records if Keenan wasn’t a suspect?

Det. Glassmire’s email 3.12.2011 Рconversation talks about TACTICS for his next interview with KEENAN. AND comparing STOLEN JEWELRY KEENAN HAD PAWNED at a Cash for Gold Store with JEWELRY ROBBED FROM MORGAN the night she was killed.

In the police report supplement #18:¬†On March 25, 2012, over 3 months AFTER Morgan is murdered, Det. Glassmire again interviews Keenan, and¬†tells Keenan that he is still a viable “suspect.”

So you tell me – do you really believe there was no suspect?



Morgan Ingram Scholarship for Theatre @ CMC

Just wanted to share with you all again, the Morgan Ingram Scholarship for Theatre, that was set up right after her death. ¬†This year’s application deadline is over, and now I am waiting to hear who was awarded this year’s scholarship. ¬†Education was a HUGE thing in Morgan’s life and she was always trying to encourage others to stay in school and try to go to college…so this is important to Steve & I as well.

Below was the beginning of the Morgan Ingram Memorial Scholarship. ¬†I would like to thank again, everyone who has donated to this Scholarship since it’s inception. ¬†It means a lot to us and I know it means a lot to Morgan <3 ¬†I will let you all know who this year’s recipients are as soon as I am notified. ¬†Thanks again!
