“Dying Message”

In a a final effort to identify her killer, Morgan summoned up every last bit of strength she had in her small body, and clenched her hands together…one hand she had clearly made a “K” and on the other hand was clearly a “N.”

Everyone who knew Morgan knew she could sign.  Morgan was not deaf, but just like her classmates, she learned it in school, and continued to practice it with her friends.  She went to the Deaf Camp in Old Snowmass to “talk” to the kids there.  Morgan loved learning new things, and then she loved becoming really, really good at them.  Morgan was leaving a very LOUD message with her last dying breath..  This message can not be overlooked.

These 2 letters were frozen in the clenched shape of her hands.  Experts that have seen the pictures of those hands are quite shocked at how they could possibly be overlooked…it was impossible!  Morgan’s hand were sending a message to law enforcement – she wanted her killer(s) caught, and she tried her best to help get justice…Morgan’s body was a body of “proof!”  Please don’t allow people that want Morgan’s case to just “go away” to get away with it.  We need justice for Morgan, and all others that no longer have a voice, because their voice, along with their lives, were taken from them.  Share her story, demand transparency & truth, checks and balances (the principals our country was founded on) and let’s get Morgan’s investigation opened.

We want those involved in her gang stalking, and murder to know they can not hide from justice – it’s coming.  Remember – there is no statute of limitation on murder, boys and girls.  It is no joke – her murderer(s) stole a beautiful young soul from all the people that loved her.  They took her away from all her dreams.  And those involved in the perpetration of the crime, as well as the cover-up, deserve to be investigated, and then a tried and convicted for their crimes.  It may take 6 months, a year, 2 years, 5 years, 10 years, or 30 years, but be assured we will never give up, so it will come.  Now they can start worrying about the “when,” just like they made us worry about the when during the stalking – they lived off the fear, stress and exhaustion they caused us, and ever since they have lived off the pain they have caused since they took Morgan from us, but now they can live with the worry about “when” their actions will catch up with them, because THEY WILL.


Accusing Innocent People?

Am I accusing innocent people?  I was there, through the stalking and murder, I lived it – I kept a timeline from the beginning, not knowing that it would be critical as the days unfolded.  I wrote down the “facts” about the incidents of stalking…in the beginning, not even knowing who was involved.

After our first photo capture of the stalker, Morgan realized who was probably involved – later on, after being followed, and seeing who the stalker(s) were, Morgan finally knew who it was, and told the sheriffs. Keenan VanGinkle was named as the main “suspect” in Morgan’s case and Brooke Harris was also mentioned, but her name was redacted because she was under 18 at the time – this can be seen on the police reports.

Steve & I were also victims of the same stalking – we are listed as victims in the police reports.  I am a victim – speaking my truth.  I am not accusing innocent people – I know who was doing the stalking, and I know Morgan was murdered…this is what I have stated.  I have also stated that given Morgan was murdered during an active investigation into her felony stalking, and given that only 2 days before she was murdered, the detective told me he expected the stalking to escalate, and was assigning additional patrols on our house – yes, I believe I know who murdered my daughter.  And yes, I believe her case needs to be investigated, if Morgan is ever to receive justice.  If that is all it takes to be an “accuser,” then when families know who the “suspect” is, they should never speak out or they will be considered an “accuser?” This is ridiculous – that is EXACTLY what criminals would like…everyone to stay quiet.  That is how evil wins.

I was there the whole time during this horrific, life-changing, soul-numbing 4 month period of time – Morgan, Steve & I were the only ones that lived through the stalking and her murder.  I lived it – Steve & I experienced the stalking, along with Morgan – no one else, except of course those involved in her stalking & murder…so I know for a fact this was a gang stalking, involving more than one person, as well as a predatory stalker.  I know who was involved and what their roles were in the stalking and murder.

Are you aware that Morgan saw Keenan VanGinkle face-to-face as he was engaged in stalking her?  It was at least 5 times that I am positive of – if you knew that fact would that fact change your mind? Or would you feel safer believing someone that wasn’t there, and never knew what really happened?

If people truly followed where the evidence (facts) of this case lead – they would follow it through to the truth, but too many people have a stake in the false reporting, as well as keeping Morgan’s case from ever being investigated.

I am not judge and jury – I want her case investigated, so someday there will be a judge and jury to decide who is guilty of murdering my daughter Morgan, as well as who the accessory’s were  the others who assisted in the stalking, false alibis, and murder.  I then want to see all those involved charged and sentenced.

Is that too much for a mother to want?



Morgan LOVED to Read, Research & Learn

Those who really knew Morgan knew that she loved to read, do her own research, and learn…she never stopped learning.  Steve found these 3 cards the other day, while looking through a box we had packed up after her murder…we both sobbed.  The pain of losing Morgan is still indescribable.

Morgan was such a kind, loving young woman – and so much more.  She had a passion for learning.  My throat constricts, and my heart feels like it is being crushed, when I think of not only what we lost, when Morgan’s life was cut short, but also what the world lost. How could a person or persons be so soulless, so lacking in human feelings, as to want to end another’s life?  I don’t think I will ever be able to understand it.  I know murderers live among us.  I know they look like ordinary people like us – but they are so very different…they lack feeling, they lack human compassion, and they still walk our streets.

In Morgan’s short 20 years she had helped so many, and brought happiness to many more…I know she would have continued to do so throughout her life…but that life was taken from her.  Morgan was murdered during an active investigation into her felony stalking.  I know some people don’t like to hear that – it’s upsetting and scary.  But no amount of candy-coating, from people that do not want her death to be investigated, can change that fact.  Morgan still needs and can receive justice for what was done to her.

If I had been the one killed, instead of Morgan, I guarantee you Morgan would have done all the research a lot faster, and a lot more thoroughly than I have.  She would have become a great women’s rights lawyer, fighting for justice, like she had planned.  All those dreams are now gone, but her fight for justice continues…through all of us.

I will also never ever understand how a victim of stalking, a stalking where the victim identified her stalker, and law enforcement knew who the suspect was (they have his name in the police reports listed as SUSPECT), a victim who is found dead, and her death deemed to be “suspicious” on the very morning her body is found – then no evidence is collected, no fingerprints taken, no rape kit done, suspicious “spots” on her chest are not tested – instead, that very morning, the detective tells us her death is a “mystery” until the forensic pathologist tells them what the cause and manner of death is.  THEN…the pathologist comes back with a determination of “Natural Causes,” so law enforcement says there is no need for an investigation…convenient for them – right?

And just so you know, Colorado law, at that time, clearly states that the contracted forensic pathologist, Dr. Robert Kurtzman, was completely responsible for the investigation – but he was never at the crime scene – he disregarded what her parents, Morgan’s doctors, and the physical and the scientific evidence and medical certainty, which is what he is supposed to listen to…instead he made his own decision, irresponsible based on pure speculation and then listed the false information all on his own.

In a different case out of Colorado, a case where Dr. Kurtzman (same forensic pathologist that did Morgan’s autopsy) ruled two little boys’ deaths as accidental, the case of the Jensen brothers, the Colorado Supreme Court would not allow Dr. Kurtzman’s PER, or his opinion to be heard by the jurors stating that, “It would only confuse the jurors.”  A doctor is supposed to state scientific certainty, not make up what he wants it to be, or is being told to say…facts are facts, the truth is the truth and sure, people in positions of trust, like a forensic pathologist, are given the benefit of the doubt because we are supposed to trust them, but some are not what they seem, and do not do the right thing.

THEN…8 months later, after the forensic pathologist, going against all the physical and scientific evidence that Morgan died at the hands of another, changed her Manner of Death to a “Suicide,” with absolutely no evidence.  This is such nonsense and yet it gets scarier every time I speak with an expert involved in these type of determinations.  The very educated top forensic toxicologists that run the toxicology tests and produce the documentation are frustrated as well…they say that some of these forensic pathologists misread the results and go off what they believe and NOT the scientific findings!  This is ludicrous – and yet it happens, and yes, it happened in Morgan’s case. The coroner would NEVER speak with us about Morgan’s death – not once.  The forensic pathologist, Dr. Robert Kurtzman (now working for the Medical Examiner in Montana) threatened me that he could change her manner of death if I didn’t stop having Morgan’s doctors and other experts contact him…and 8 months later he made good on his promise.

How can Garfield County get away with this?  I have asked myself that many, many times now.  So far they have gotten away with it.  But I don’t plan on it staying like that forever – the truth will come out.  Our family is not about to give up.  Morgan is worth all of our efforts to right this wrong, as are all the other victims of stalking that need our help.  #JusticeForMorgan



Do People Really Believe Teens Are Not Capable of Murder?

I would like to say to the small handful of sick people out on the Internet – the ones that keep posting false information, with their uneducated opinions about Morgan’s case…do you really believe what you keep saying about teens being unable to kill someone out of jealousy or obsession?

Skylar Neese was viciously killed, because her so-called friends decided they didn’t like her…false rumors were spread about the victim after her disappearance.  Again, as in Morgan’s case, trying to deflect guilt.  This was a planned murder, as was Morgan’s.

Young girls/women have been killed out of obsession, jealousy, anger, insult, or even just for being perceived to have taken something from another young person – I know, because I have been told by police and federal agents.  I also know, because I READ – don’t these trolls in Morgan’s case read?  If they did they would know all the things they are posting are lies, but maybe they already know they are lying and trying to deflect guilt.

No one has the right to end another persons life – and yes, teens sometimes have murdered.  They are just like any other messed up, sick murderer…it has nothing to do with their age.  In fact, if you do your research, you will soon discover, stalking and sometimes murder is often perpetrated by females and/or males in their late teens through their 20’s.

These “teenagers” even had the “knowledge” of how to try to make the body “disappear.”  Others have the “knowledge” of how to stage a crime scene, as in Morgan’s case.  In some cases (like this one) law enforcement and the coroner’s office can figure it out…other times they do not even try.  So a murder can go un-investigated, as in Morgan’s case, or if the victim’s body is disposed of it can remain a missing person case.

And yet, uniformed, uneducated people go on the Internet, as in our daughter Morgan’s case, and act like it is some kind of far-fetched idea that a young person could stalk and murder another young person…am I missing something here?  Do people really believe what these trolls are trying to convince them of?  Look at the smile on this murderers face (pictured above) – it reminds me of someone in Morgan’s case.

Skylar’s murderer was convicted, but I am so sorry for Skylar and her family,  they will never be the same.


Again, like I wrote in my last post, this murderer tried to act concerned and upset that the victim was missing, all the time knowing she murdered and hid the body…murderers rarely admit their guilt…usually they try to “deflect” it away from themselves – and that has always been the truth, more often than not.



Obsessed Stalker Murders College Student…

In 2011 – the same year Morgan was stalked and murdered, another obsessed stalker murdered, dismembered, and disposed of his neighbor, a fellow college student.

This young woman did not know she had a stalker.  She mentioned to her sister that she had noticed things had been moved around in her apartment, and thought some things were possibly missing, but she was so involved with her final exams she didn’t really think too much about it.  It is a fact that many times stalkers can gain access to their victim’s homes, without the victim realizing it.  They take things, they move things, the look through things, they record things…they are predators.

She was studying for the bar exams, and planning on moving soon afterwards – but she vanished.  Many times the thought of “losing” their victim, as in a planned move, will set off an obsessed stalker, and make him/her react.  We believe in Morgan’s case this was “one” of the motives for her murder.

This woman’s family, friends, as well as the police were searching for answers.  There was no sign of forced entry – her neighbor, later found to be her stalker, had used a master key to gain access to 27-year-old Lauren Giddings’ apartment.  And just like in the Lea Porter case, out of Colorado, this stalker/murder had been right there, to offer help in the search, acting (no, actually over-acting), like he was so concerned for her safety, all the while knowing he had killed her.  And just like in Lea’s case, this killer tried to dispose of her body (Lea’s body has never been found)…how can these young men (or should I say monsters) do this kind of thing?  Why do we have to continue to lose our precious young daughters to predators like this?

In Lauren’s case luck played a part in the police finding out that she had been murdered…part of her body was found in a trash bag in the dumpster after the scheduled trash truck was “running late.”  In many cases families never know what really happened to their daughter – many times their body is never found, so the murderer does not confess.  My heart goes out to Lauren Giddings’ family, as their lives will never be the same…how can they be?
