The Ashley Fallis case – another case I have been following out of Colorado. Ashley was murdered one month after Morgan. This case is out of Evans, CO, not Garfield, CO, but is similar in many ways to Morgan’s murder, as it is an alleged cover-up by the police.
A Weld County Sheriff’s Deputy, Steve Reams, has been suspended amidst an internal and criminal investigation into whether that deputy withheld information about the alleged 2012 murder of Ashley Fallis by her husband, ex-Weld County jail deputy Tom Fallis. This came just hours after an updated lawsuit revealed Ashley Fallis’ parents believe the alleged cover-up extended to the Sheriff’s Office.
Ashley’s death was ruled a suicide only 3 days after her murder, and no further investigation followed. This was even before the autopsy & toxicology results came back. Her parents say it was a rush to judgement. The police would not listen to her parents, but after an investigative reporter from Fox News got involved a new investigation in a different jurisdiction took place. A Grand Jury was convened and 3 days later, after reviewing the evidence that the Evans Police Department had refused to accept, the Grand Jury came back with a decision that her death really was a homicide – not suicide.
The suspect was extradited from another state, arrested & is now awaiting trial. 48 Hours did a great job showing what really happened in this case. You can watch it by clicking on this link: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/the-death-of-ashley-fallis-suicide-murder-or-accident/
We are now waiting for Morgan’s investigation to become an open investigation along with indictments. We believe Colorado cares so please keep up the positive thoughts – we are moving in the right direction and hopefully Morgan’s case will be the next case to have justice in Colorado in the near future!
