November 15, 2011 – Day 106 of Morgan’s Stalking – Why is it always just up to you?

After the deputies leave in the morning I go back to work. Morgan has classes and will be getting up shortly to leave for her college classes. Steve takes off for his project in Aspen. He has many art projects going, but has found he can’t do them all with all of the stress surrounding what is happening. There is a complex project that keeps his mind busy, and he devotes himself to it – he calls it his “ship in a bottle” and while I don’t agree I can empathize with his need to just do one thing right now. Anything more would be far too much.

After Steve leaves I hear of the latest rumor in the neighborhood. After so many years of no rumors, we now seem to have a new one every week – all based on the stalker. The latest greatest is that Christina Harris (Brooke’s mom) is telling everyone that the sheriffs know who the stalker is, and he is one of Morgan’s ex-boyfriends. What?  This is news to me and obviously not true…so why is she telling neighbors this lie?

The rumor about Morgan having gone missing, a while back, upset me the most. Because there were implications that something would or was going to happen to Morgan, subtly veiled in that rumor. The fear that had driven some of the lies in the neighborhood were predicated on people “disappearing” and precautions were taken to protect against this. Steve and I had no first hand knowledge, only what the sheriffs relayed to us and the stories that had been shared with us.  True or not, they were quite frightening.

This rumor however was laughable. The basic problem with rumors and all kinds of lies is there has to be some behind-the-scenes knowledge, or there is the overwhelming risk that you will be all too quickly exposed as a liar. This was one of those.  Morgan had only two ex-boyfriends. One presently lived along the east coast, and had for quite some time. The other lived in Australia, and had for quite some time. Stalkers by nature of their crime have to live in the relative proximity.  A day or two travel away for each incident did not make for the ideal stalking situation, and the Garfield County detectives had long ago ruled those two out as possible culprits.

Morgan is fairly serious in her relationships and they tend to last for years, instead of just days or months. I do not really know if it is the influence of Steve and I, who have been happily married for 35 years, or it is just that it’s the way she has always been. But Morgan takes relationships seriously

I am tired of the nonstop rumors, and the lies that have become the new neighborhood gossip.  Tomorrow I want to find out from the detectives how their “talk” with Keenan has gone, and I want an answer to these persistent rumors. They are, without doubt, always pointing to the innocence of Keenan.  But it is not just that fact, it is the innocence of everyone associated with him.  Morgan deserves an answer to a few simple questions, and I intend to get them.

Morgan leaves to go for a drive with friends and takes her puppy Wylah.  I walk into her room after she leaves and I imagine what it is like for Morgan.  Banging on her windows at any hour, detectors going off to signal trouble.  Knowing someone is out their watching you.  I look at her “panic button” firmly attached to her end table, and it hurts so much that this is her life.  I want it to be over. I want her to have a normal life again. Her motion light goes off as I am standing there.  I call for Steve and I tell him we have to end this. That I am reaching my limit.

Steve agrees and says we have to change this, whatever it takes.  He wants me to call the detectives and have them over tomorrow night.  He will tell tell them that enough is enough.

Today is October 29, 2012 – I am fielding calls from every angle possible. I am also sharing some of our evidence, as I have never done so before. Steve says why hold back, let everyone know just what is going on here.  I field an answer from the Internet that is shocking, because it contains information that no one should know, except someone that was involved in Morgan’s murder.  Who do I call?  The sheriff has gone on TV and said he will never open this investigation again.  Skipping over the small fact that there never was an investigation into her suspicious death in the first place, I truly wonder what a person does in a situation like this.

And then Steve says he thinks he has an answer.  And I am thinking, I was so hoping you would say something like that.  Now I go to see what this answer is – Morgan’s friends, Morgan’s true friends are all coming together to help and even if this has to go all the way to the White House –  it won’t stop….we will get justice for Morgan….we will save other girls!

  1. I am new to this blog but just can’t quit reading it. I have a daughter and can’t imagine her going through something like this and it’s unbelievable the way the law enforcement has just pushed y’all aside and seems to me this stalker has someone on the inside bc seriously how r thief batteries always dead and y’all’s are not?! I pray that y’all find answers soon bc I can’t imagine living with all of the wonder.

    • Thanks Jessica – thanks to our readers and Morgan’s friends answers are coming in daily and we know we will get to the bottom of this.

  2. So much of me is hoping that ? came forward. It’s pretty convenient timing that you got great info and her FB is magically gone. You sound so full of hope, I do hope you got the answer you need! This will get reopened I feel it in my heart, it has to. It is so great to hear that her friends are all helping you! The world is behind you and Morgan, Justice for Morgan!

  3. Because I think about this everyday, my theory is that they were trying to kipnap her and instead they killed her. Now you mention the rumors about people saying she had gone missing really makes me believe this. They just need to come forward and confess…

    • You could be right – wonder which one will confess first. The first will be the one in the least amount of trouble.

  4. I just made the connection to the four boys in Basalt who were going to kidnap another boy and leave him in the woods. That tragedy was averted because the parents of the boys planning the kidnapping went to the police.

    The above mentioned event was four months after Morgan’s death. Wouldn’t it be something if the parents of the kids involved with Morgan went to the police with what they knew?

    For those outside the valley, Basalt is about 10 minutes from the Ingram’s.

    • I forgot about that, wow. I don’t believe the parents of these people would do the right thing…they have been making up excuses and moving their kids around for a long time now, but we can all hope that there is some humanity left in them.

  5. I have been reading your blog and I am so sorry for your loss. I am going through some health issues and this has put perspective on my problem and helped me cope. I have a daughter and only hope I could be a quarter as strong as you and your husband are with this horrible crime. Morgan is beautiful inside and out. Evil will not win.

    • Thank you Bonnie and I hope your health gets better. Evil will not win…I’m not saying it’s going to be easy but I know Evil will not win!

  6. Praying that you continue to find more answers! I can’t imagine going through this. Right now I have a son who is 3 and a daughter who is due in March, and I just can’t imagine ever experiencing something like this with either one of my children. I think the awareness you are spreading while sharing the story is also invaluable. I really hope that you get down to the bottom of this!!

    • Kristen I feel the same way – I keep praying for that everyday…it will happen, just not sure when yet.

  7. “In Matters of the Heart, and Matters of the mind, if it Matters at all- it’s only a Matter of Time– the TRUTH shall Rise!” Morgan Matters!! Truth is coming– it’s the Law of Attraction, what one puts out will eventually come back to them… Oh the truth is coming… Love and Light always…
    You bring hope and comfort to so many through Morgan and this blog!! Thank You, Toni and Steve! Praying that Victory is Close!!

  8. Thank you – that was beautiful! Boy it would feel so good to declare Victory for Morgan and keep trying to help others!

  9. I just had a thought, and I don’t know if anyone has brought this up before or not, could it be considered a federal stalking case if K organized others to do his bidding while he was in Texas? I don’t know if it would qualify for the interstate stalking act, but it might be worth a try to get the FBI involved.

  10. Toni,

    What was Elliot’s last name? I am just curious. I was wanting to look him up online. Thanks and take care of yourself and Steve!
