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!!!

How to describe #Homicide

murder

According to Cornell University Law School, “Homicide is when one human being causes the death of another”.  Cornell University adds that while murder is one type of homicide, but not all forms of homicide are murder.

Homicide includes murder, manslaughter and accidental, justifiable or excusable homicides.  Morgan’s death was without doubt at the hands of other human beings so it should be considered a homicide.  Now I believe Morgan’s murderer has contacted me, as well as contacting another person, to try to say Morgan deserved to die, so in their warped perception of life they feel that justifies her death… I really don’t believe that is what the law meant when it says, “justifiable homicide” – nope, just because the demented mind of a sick murdering individual that says their victim deserved to die does not make the murder justifiable.

It is so macabre, sick  and twisted to experience how far victim blaming and bashing will go. I see it continually in not only Morgan’s case but also in the many others who reach out to me with their own stories. I am continually receiving messages from people I do not know… from all over the world.  These messages have a similar theme – they want me to continue fighting for justice for Morgan and to never give up.  Just this morning I received more messages:

Comment: I HOPE MORGAN GETS JUSTICE!!! MANY PEOPLE HAVE NOT FORGOTEN ABOUT HER OR THE WRONG DOINGS OF THE JUSTICE SYSTEM.
Comment: I just wanted to say I am so sorry that justice has not been served in this case for you and your beloved daughter Morgan. You must miss her everyday and to have to fight for justice is just awful. Stay strong xxx
Comment: Dear Mr. and Mrs. Ingram First of all.. I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine the pain and sorrow that fills your heart on a daily basis. I am so so very sorry. I believe that the fight for justice will be rewarded and I thank you for the examples you set in the battle for Morgan’s justice. That we as parents must not give in to the authorities but keep on fighting for our children. Afterall, we know our children and therefore also know when something is wrong! I would gladly offer you all my help and support but sitting in Denmark there’s very little I can do. The time is 23:35 pm here I DK and I just watch your tv-appearings on the ID Channel. I do believe that when the time is right justice will be served. You are in my prayers. May you all be blessed.

All these wonderful souls, from all over the world, keep us strong.  We will always continue our fight to have Morgan’s case investigated and her legacy on earth restored with arrests made and justice attained.  Our entire family is committed to stay the course no matter how long it takes.

Be assured we are here for the long run and for Morgan, there is NO statute of limitations on murder.  Once the entire story of serial gang stalking and violence is torn from the places it is kept tightly stashed away among the other skeletons in the closet of Garfield County Colorado, Morgan will at least have her justice!

We would like everyone to watch this show if they can, or set your DVD.  It is very important to us to get the message out there that we want this case open, we want justice for Morgan and we will NEVER give up!  Morgan deserves justice & all victims of stalking need to be taken seriously.  Stalking is devastating and oftentimes deadly, as it was in Morgan’s case.

The episode is called “Edge of Insanity”

Toni Ingram resides in a quiet town with her husband Steve and their 19-year-old daughter, Morgan. But the peaceful neighborhood is shaken with fear after a series of local robberies. Soon after that, the Ingram family experiences a suspicious character circling their home, and Morgan becomes the next target. Threatening behavior quickly escalates into stalking, and Morgan battles to keep hold of her sanity as her hooded tormentor closes in. Location: Carbondale, Colorado

 

 

It is the ‘Right of the People’

When a any form of Government, even a coroner or a sheriff become destructive to the people it is the ‘Right of the People’ to alter or abolish that government and institute a new government.  The people of Garfield County and all people of Colorado need to step up and insist that the ‘officials’ that do not follow the law, by their actions break the law, and go against the rights of the ‘people” be impeached and arrested.  Why should they be above the law?  I  believe the good people that wrote the Declaration of Independence knew that – they gave us our freedoms…let’s not be apathetic and allow our freedoms to be taken away.  Blessings to all you warriors of freedom out there 🙂
