VICTIMS & THEIR FAMILY & PETS BECOME FURTHER VICTIMS…

AEQUITAS

They work hard to hold offenders accountable & promote victim safety

“Typically the perpetrator harrasses and attacks the victims and victim’s family
Often the Offender’s family members and friends attack (they say don’t snitch to others),”  This has all happened in our case and to this day we are still being attacked.

“When members of the criminal justice system do not respond appropriately to intimidation and fail to correct system deficiencies that enable opportunities to intimidate they become inadvertent accomplices to the intimidators.”  This is also very true in our case – very sad, but very true…

“The victim, victim’s or witness’ immediate family, including spouses, children and pets become targets.” AEQUITAS, https://aequitasresource.org In our case even supporters of justice for Morgan have become targets…extremely outrageous behavior by the people involved in the murder and cover-up of our daughter’s murder!

Changes need to be made – #JusticeForMorgan & #JusticeForAllVictims

TUESDAY, September 25, 2018 – Today is National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims

National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims was designated by Congress to honor and remember homicide victims and the devastating impact their tragic deaths has had on their families, friends, and communities. Today we commemorate these victims through national recognition. Communities across the country gather together to pay tribute to victims whose lives were taken, support their surviving family members, share stories, pictures and memories in order to provide comfort to those who lost a loved one.

The Day of Remembrance is a special day, but it’s important to support victims and their families every day. They need to know they matter and that their loved one is not forgotten. Victims do not have enumerated rights in the U.S. Constitution nor 15 state constitutions. That’s why Marsy’s Law has significantly expanded the rights of victims in the states that have adopted this law – states that now have Marsy’s Law have added permanent protections for victims and their families – basic rights that they deserve, ensuring crime victims and their families are treated with compassion and respect by granting them rights equal to those of the accused.

Marsy’s Law was named after Dr. Nicholas’ sister, Marsalee (Marsy) Nicholas. Marsy was a University of California Santa Barbara student, who was stalked and killed by her ex-boyfriend in 1983. Only a week after Marsy was murdered, Dr. Nicholas and Marsy’s mother, walked into a grocery store after visiting her daughter’s grave and was confronted by the accused murderer. She had no idea that he had been released on bail. https://marsyslaw.us/about-marsys-law/marsys-story/ 

Please support our efforts to help raise awareness of stalking, murder and the rights of victims and their families. Whether it may be sharing your own story, simply spreading the word, or lending your support, you will be assisting these crime victims and their families.

Morgan is never forgotten – we think about her every minute of every day of every week of every month of every year since her death in December of 2011….this is the same thing for every family of a murdered loved one…they never forget.

Morgan loved all life…

Morgan’s puppy, Wylah May, summer of 2011

Anthony D. Williams said, “When we LOVE all the life we see, we see the LOVE in all LIFE.”

Morgan loved everyone in her life – she loved humans, nature and all animals…Morgan LOVED LIFE.  We honor Morgan every day by being grateful for our life, every day of every week of every month of every year that we are gifted life.  A continued life that Morgan was cheated out of by those who are responsible for her murder.

We remember that Morgan never hesitated every day to let the people she loved know that she loved them.  Remember to always tell those you love how much you love them, because tomorrow is never guaranteed. Much love to you all!

 

Familial DNA helped solve a gruesome cold case…just like in the recent Golden State killer/night stalker case

We have all seen crime shows on TV – the ones that use DNA to solve some of the most difficult murder cases.  It’s pretty amazing.  Investigators that use their gut instincts and won’t give up, using great investigative skills, in combination with DNA, this all adds up to be an amazing combination.  The following link shows what it took to solve a case from 2002. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2017/01/23/the-daring-dna-hunt-that-cracked-france-s-gruesome-cold-case.html?via=desktop&source=twitter

I love reading stories like this – stories that show families that never gave up.  Stories that give us hope that justice will someday happen.  I would like to praise the investigators that stuck with this case.

I hope familial DNA will start being used in many unsolved cases – cases where the murderer does not have their DNA in CODIS. It could be a HUGE breakthrough in solving so many cases, and could help to stop serial murderers as well.

In a more recent case,

Another big step forward in solving murders In this country would be the implementation of a national database of cold cases.  It’s hard to believe, but it’s true – we have no national database of cold cases in this country.  There is no way to link crimes in different states to the same MO/murderer.  if the killer is arrested for another crime in a state like Colorado, where all felons must be tested for DNA, a match will be made, but very few states have this requirement.  For example .if DNA was found in a murder investigation in one state, unless the murderer’s DNA is in CODIS .  If they have never been arrested their DNA would not be in CODIS. And her is the problem…law enforcement is not required to report murder cases – so to think that a skilled and persistent detective could solve a murder if the murderer kept moving around while still

We need to get in front of more crimes happening to innocent victims and familial DNA and implementing a national database of murders (that law enforcement is required to report murders to) would be a huge step forward.

A match was made from the DNA profile from the Bennett and Smith cases. It has been determined that it was the same murderer.

Authorities also said there’s no signs of forcible entry at the home – this is the same reason the Garfield County Sheriffs used to say that Morgan’s stalker(s) could not have been in our house…what a bunch of BS – there are so many murders, rapes & kidnappings that have no visible signs of forced entry, does that mean a crime didn’t happen?  Nope – it does not!  In Morgan’s case her stalker(s) tried multiple times to punch in our front door code to gain access to our house.  Our house was empty between 6 pm – 8 pm the night Morgan was murdered.  Our dogs were locked up in the laundry room and I believe her stalker(s) came into our house and hid in Morgan’s closet until everyone went to sleep…then he attacked her, while she was asleep.  The act of a total COWARD!!!

Unsolved homicide…Garfield County Colorado’s dirty little secret…

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 confoundinghttp://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
