The Pursuit of Police Transparency and Search for Justice

‘SURVIVORS’ is available for order in both paperback and Kindle formats. I was honored to be a contributor to this book – you can read about Morgan’s story in Chapter 7.

‘Survivors’ was released on August 1, 2010, only 3 weeks ago, and it is still the #1 New Release on Amazon under Criminal Evidence, with all 5-star ratings. Yay! It’s a great read and hard to put down. I would encourage you to read it if you have the chance.

I am so very grateful to Dennis Griffin for all his expertise and hard work that he has put into this book, as well as his dedication to the families/co-victims of all these under-investigated cases. The Washington Post did research on only REPORTED cases of homicide, (like many of these stories in the book, so many suspicious deaths that are real homicides go unreported because they have been misreported) and The Washington Post stated, “Out of 54,868 homicides in 55 cities, over the past decade, 50 percent did not result in an arrest.” In my opinion, in this day and age, this is not acceptable. This is “murder with impunity!

“The survivors of victims of murder and suspicious death are often victimized twice—first by the loss of their loved one and subsequently by the system they rely on for justice. In pursuit of police transparency and search for justice, retired investigator Dennis Griffin takes us inside the world of real crime cases to expose the shocking truth behind the alarming number of unsolved murders and suspicious deaths classified as accidental, self-inflicted, or natural—with little to no investigation.” Listen here to ImaginePublicity on Air on Blog Talk Radio doing an interview: Dennis N. Griffin and SURVIVORS Anthology.

Another Staged Crime Scene?

This was not a case of stalking, but just like in Morgan’s case – it appears to be another staged crime scene. A murder ruled a suicide, but lividity is scientific evidence that doesn’t lie, and just like in Morgan’s case, this young woman’s body appears to have been moved and staged to look like a suicide after she was murdered!

As in the case of the photos I have recently seen of Morgan’s back, the marks on Sheena’s back are evidence her hanging was staged. This is according to Forensic Pieces, which has used the case to teach law enforcement investigators about how murders can be staged as suicides. Any law enforcement agency should be trained on how to detect a staged crime scene…this is imperative, otherwise why bother to investigate at all? If all the staged crime scenes in this nation were actually recorded as what they really are…murders, then the actual number of unsolved murders would be far in excess of the

In 2017, the FBI reported the crime and arrest data from 16,000 law enforcement agencies across the country and found that only 61.6 percent of reported murders were “cleared.” AND that is only the reported murders, staged crime scenes are usually misreported as suicides or accidental…not murders, as in Morgan’s case as well as Sheena’s case. That also means that 38.4 percent of the 15,657 murders reported nationwide went unsolved — 6,012 in all, according to FBI data. This also means those murderers still walk among us, so this is a huge public safety issue!

If you are a family, like ours, going through something similar to this, then I would like you to know some things to keep in mind that can possibly help:

*Keep in contact with the investigators handing your case.

*Keep detailed notes, and copies of all documents, emails, voice messages, everything.

*If you are having trouble communicating with your law enforcement agency contact a victim advocacy organization to intervene on your behalf.

*Always research the laws in your state – they are all different from state to state. Find out what the statute of limitations to file a civil wrongful death lawsuit is in your state and find out what records you are entitled to see and how to obtain them. If law enforcement refuses to release them, stating it is still an ‘active investigation’ find out what they are actively doing on the case. Try speaking to your county attorney’s office as well.

*Don’t be frustrated, although you will be….don’t give up, keep on top of things and continually move forward. It sometimes takes a long time, but those answers, and puzzle pieces will continually be revealed as long as you keep pushing forward.

Please take stalking serious. Our stalking, with our youngest daughter being the main target, lasted only four months, and we had no idea that it would end with our daughter’s murder. Know what you should do if you are being stalked – educate yourself in order to be safe. Don’t become another statistic. Much love & light to you…the more we know and the more we share our awareness the safer we become. #JusticeForMorgan #JusticeForAllVictimsofStalking

Like Eckhart Tolle said, “Awareness is most certainly the greatest agent for change,” and that is exactly what I am trying to accomplish…change. We need to change the ‘playing field’ for victims, as well as co-victims (the families and friends left behind after a horrific murder). Right now that field favors the perpetrator, not the victim, as sad and unbelievable as that sounds. In so many cases families, such as ours, are not given the evidence that law enforcement has, for many years, and not without heavy intervention, even when there is no active investigation at the time. The families have every right to have that evidence and conduct their own investigation, if law enforcement does not. One father is still fighting for justice for his daughter and in the meantime he has raised awareness and changed the law in his state – the new law is called “Molly’s Law” and every state should have a “Molly’s Law.” This is the type of change to the ‘playing field’ that I am trying to facilitate.

Listen here to the Lynda Cheldelin Fell on ‘Moments of Hope’ and the ‘Grief Diaries’ on a Facebook live interview with Larry Young talking about his daughter Molly. As Lynda says, “This is a shocking true story about one father’s pursuit of police transparency and justice.”

An Excerpt Shared From The Book ‘Survivors’

Dennis N. Griffin, with the Transparency Project, shared the following on Facebook on Friday, August 16, 2019.

An excerpt from Chapter 7 of the SURVIVORS book, the Morgan Ingram story written by her mother, Toni Ingram: We reported incidents of stalking over 70 times in four months. We had photographic, video and eye-witness proof of the stalker. We kept a detailed timeline of the incidents. The main suspect is named over and over in the police reports, emails and text messages, with his accomplice, who was somewhat protected (and redacted from the reports), as she was still a minor. According to the deputies, they both had extensive criminal records which we would never see because their records were sealed.Then, on the morning of December 2, 2011, we found our daughter dead in her bed. This was only four days before she was scheduled to give her on-camera statement to the sheriffs for an impending arrest of the suspect in her stalking case. The detectives had told the suspects this detail only days before her murder.Her room was the scene of an obvious struggle. Her panic button, which was hidden by her bed, and would summon her father with a baseball bat if pushed, had been torn off and tossed across the room. Her cell phone, which she always kept in bed next to her as she slept, was found under her bathroom door. Her pants were unbuttoned and unzipped, her bottom bed sheet was missing, her pillow cases and the pajamas she had worn to bed, were gone as well. There was blood on her forehead, lips and teeth, her nose looked smashed, she had a fat lip, tangled hair, abrasions on the top and bottom of her right hand, three torn nails on her right hand, and amazingly, her hands were frozen in rigor, “signing” the first and last letters of the stalking suspect’s name! The sheriffs dismissed all this evidence, called her a slob, and her death was ruled to be from natural causes.

This book is #1 on Amazon under new releases in criminal evidence – with all 5-star ratings so far! Yay 😀 If you haven’t already ordered it I would highly recommend it. Hard to put down, once you start reading it. SURVIVORS is now available for order in both paperback and Kindle formats. Read about Morgan’s story.
