Stalked everywhere you go…even leaving work

Stalking has serious impacts on victims!

Most people need their jobs to survive and are reluctant to tell co-workers, and/or their employer about their stalker – they want to pretend he/she will eventually stop. They have no idea why it started in the first place. We must all realize stalking is serious and can have fatal consequences

This young man obsessed over a girl from his high school for many years before he finally struck and ended her life…and there were many red flags, but they were ignored. We all need to take stalking seriously. Civil lawsuits are an option for victims and co-victims.

One Family’s Civil Suit

On October 15, 1999, New Hampshire resident Liam Youens, shot and killed Amy Lynn Boyer, a young woman he had been stalking for several years. Her family sued a company for giving out her employment location information to her stalker and won.

Another Real Fact…Not Fiction

Here is another real fact…in Garfield County, whether you call the Dispatch number or 911, it really doesn’t matter, as they both go to the same call center with the same operators. This is a FACT. We were told this fact in the very beginning when the Garfield County Sheriffs became involved in our case and they gave us the number for Dispatch to call when we had an incident of stalking. In a 4 month period we called over 50 times, but there were times that we didn’t call as we fell into the trap many victims of stalking fall into…minimizing what was happening, trying to pretend it will just go away and thinking if we just ignore it then it will stop…this is a tombstone mentality and I hope, through Morgan’s story other victims of stalking will know not to fall into that same trap.

I have read on the Internet some “uniformed” people commenting on why would we call Dispatch instead of 911 if we were so worried about a stalker…seriously, they really did question even that piece of information. For them this was just another reason why the stalking couldn’t have been that bad…they were once again, dead wrong!

So today I remembered that old saying. Don’t confuse them with the FACTS…some people just want to be right, no matter how wrong they are. So sad 🙁


I Was Never Given A Choice…

I wasn’t given a choice, so I had to be strong…and now I want to create hope for the future. Change can be made, so another young woman like Morgan, and another family like ours, won’t have to suffer the same devastating pain that all of us have had to endure. 

The day I found Morgan’s body I begged for a re-set button, but of course I wasn’t given one. When reality sunk in, and I knew Morgan was really gone forever, I had to make a choice…should I curl up into a ball and give up on life all together? That’s exactly what my body wanted to do…I felt that I had failed her,  and I was not going to be given a second chance to get her far, far away from her stalker(s). I was weak and tired and nothing really mattered any longer.

As a parent you go through life with an intense desire to keep your children safe from harm, and when you fail to keep them safe you carry that guilt for the rest of your life, because it was your job, and you failed. No one in this world can talk you out of that feeling of guilt.

The second option I had was to try to figure out all the missing pieces of what had really happened to my daughter – did she really die from natural causes as the pathologist kept insisting, or was she the victim of a homicide, as other experts thought, or did she commit suicide, because she felt helpless to stop her stalker(s) and could no longer handle it?

The easiest path for me as a parent was to blindly accept the pathologist’s finding of natural causes and ignore all the false statements and red flags, especially after being threatened to “back off” from questioning natural causes or else it could be changed to “suicide.” But that wasn’t my choice. Then after not backing off and seeing the change to “suicide” it would have been easier to just accept that manner of death, as even that was easier than the thought that my daughter had been terrorized, sexually assaulted and violently murdered – no parent wants to believe that…but unfortunately that was what the facts kept showing me – it made me sick to my stomach to keep having to face it every day, but considering what Morgan went through I was not about to feel sorry for myself.

Of course now, after reading this blog from the beginning, you know the path I chose was to never give up in my search for answers and justice.

 It would have been so much easier to curl up and become a ghost, but I couldn’t do it…I had to find answers. So, yes it has been excruciatingly painful to wake up every morning for 7 years and investigate my own daughter’s murder, it is horrifying to look at pictures of her dead body and see evidence that the officials decided to overlook and cover-up in what I now believe was a capital crime, but that is the path I chose, and amazingly, because I chose that path, I have been given so many indisputable facts over these 7 years that I now believe the pain was worth it…I know there will be justice for Morgan…when and where I do not know, but I know it’s coming.
