Morgan’s case was my first experience reading a police report, and let me tell you what jumped out at me, first it was how little the reports compared to what was really happening at the time (where were all the missing reports?), and then, how many times Keenan is named as a “suspect” in the police reports, as well as in the supplemental reports, in JUST our daughter Morgan’s felony stalking case, he is mentioned over 270 times in sixty skimpy pages. If you take out the pages with everything Morgan or I sent them, as well as Keenan’s hours from City Market, that’s how many pages are in their reports – only 60 pages. Never mind those reports actually report on about one-in-five of the incidents they came to investigate. So my question is, how do those reports so thoroughly miss what was happening?
Here is just one page out of the police reports, which are public record – and yes, Steve & I are listed as victims of the stalking as well.
So how in the world can anyone ever act like there was no stalking, and no suspect? We requested, but did not receive the police reports until the new District Attorney intervened, on our behalf, and facilitated that for us in 2013.
We have been told the police reports have been put on some websites over the Internet (we ourselves have not shared them yet – we only have this website www.morgansstalking, this blog on the website, our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/morgansstalking, and our Twitter site https://twitter.com/morgansstalking), but if people are sharing these reports, don’t they read them?
Keenan Vanginkel was listed as a suspect in Morgan’s stalking case (with her case number) on August 25, 2011 – Just over three weeks into her stalking, on the NICS (national instant criminal background check system) AKA his “Global Jacket,” the sheriffs had reported him to all law enforcement, At that time Morgan did not even know Keenan was living in our neighborhood, Morgan did not know him, only saw him once before that, and had heard only bad things about him. We were not told at that time that he was a suspect. But without our knowledge, he was obviously already a suspect.
In emails from Det. Glassmire, I have his statement that he designed, and distributed “flyers” to all GarCo sheriff patrol officers, as well as Carbondale police officers, with Keenan’s picture, a picture of Keenan’s car, and information about the ongoing felony stalking case, involving Morgan as the victim. This was so they could keep an eye out for the suspect, and know if something was reported, that it was her case. Would you do this if you were a felony stalking detective that didn’t have a suspect? I have retained many emails, text messages, and voice messages from the detective. I even have emails where we ask, and were answered, about Morgan’s request to get a protection order against Keenan!
In the police reports: Brooke and her father James Harris, only days before Morgan was murdered, were interviewed by Det. Glassmire and “warned” that the following week the detective would be collecting Keenan’s hours, as well as doing an on-camera interview with Morgan.
Might criminals worry about the sheriffs getting closer to making a possible arrest?
The morning we found Morgan’s body, Brooke’s father, James Harris, called his client (a Pitkin County sheriff’s wife) to cancel his appointment with her. He left a voice message on her machine admitting that the police knew his daughter’s boyfriend was his neighbor’s stalker… just quoting what was put in the police report.
It is also noted in the police reports that the detective even collected all Keenan’s work records to compare to the incident reports, unfortunately he didn’t pick them up until after Morgan was dead. Why would he obtain only Keenan’s work records if Keenan wasn’t a suspect?
Det. Glassmire’s email 3.12.2011 – conversation talks about TACTICS for his next interview with KEENAN. AND comparing STOLEN JEWELRY KEENAN HAD PAWNED at a Cash for Gold Store with JEWELRY ROBBED FROM MORGAN the night she was killed.
In the police report supplement #18: On March 25, 2012, over 3 months AFTER Morgan is murdered, Det. Glassmire again interviews Keenan, and tells Keenan that he is still a viable “suspect.”
So you tell me – do you really believe there was no suspect?
