Make no mistake, Morgan’s death is an unsolved homicide. Our family wants one thing, and one thing only…justice for Morgan!
Every year introduces at least 5,000 more unsolved murders – and these statistics don’t even take into account the many murders, like Morgan’s, being disguised as accidental or suicidal deaths, these suspicious deaths that are “staged” to look like something other than murder. https://www.economist.com/news/united-states/21656725-police-fail-make-arrest-more-third-nations-killings-getting-away
Another interesting fact, that I had no knowledge of previously, is that even though cities and counties are suppose to report their crime statistics to the F.B.I. they don’t always do it (I have been told it is an unenforceable law) – in many cases they can just decide it isn’t a crime, and then they don’t report it…Garfield County records show that in the 10-year-span leading up to, and including Morgan’s murder, they had NO murders, many suicides and accidental deaths, and of course, natural causes, but no murders.
Amazing, especially after finding out that Garfield County contains the Piceance Basin which has some of the highest oil and gas activity in the state. https://source.colostate.edu/garfield-county-air-quality-study-results-presented-to-public/
So how can states like North Dakota have such a spike in crime that comes with the fracking and yet Garfield County, CO has nothing? Reminds me of… “Curiouser and curiouser!” Alice was so surprised by the strange circumstances she found herself in that she (and Carroll) made up a word, according to the Oxford English Dictionary. The expression is still used to mean that something is getting increasingly confounding. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/04/12/dark-side-nd-oil-boom-meth-heroin-cartels-all-part-growing-drug-trade-1418696252.html
Just another “interesting” fact – sometimes you just have to keep these facts in the back of your mind until sometime later on when some more pieces of the puzzle come into focus. I am sure there are people somewhere that benefit from counties looking safer than they really are…
From Police Magazine “When purposely committed, the impetus for such statistical “errors” may be a strategic feint, an attempt to create an illusion of vulnerability, or strength, depending on one’s agenda. Within law enforcement agencies, that feint can be the illusion of success, particularly in metropolitan areas where a desire to attract the dollars of citizens, visitors, tourists, and businesses trumps concerns over the welfare of that patronage.” http://www.policemag.com/channel/patrol/articles/2013/10/what-s-really-going-on-with-crime-rates.aspx
