August 4 – 5, 2011 – 3rd and 4th days of Morgan’s Stalking

2:00 pm Morgan goes to get her teeth cleaned in Basalt.  She comes home and helps give our big dog a bath.  Leaves to go take photos.  Tonight is 1st Friday in Carbondale.  Majid is doing a live painting, and Marble Fest starts tonight as well.

At 11:04 pm I sent a text Morgan and said, “M – it’s 11 pm are you on your way home?  Ry and Leesa are taking Dad’s truck tomorrow morning, and the Rover is the only car we will have.  Morgan answered, “I’m just leaving actually”  I texted her back, “OK see you soon, love you.”

Morgan heard tapping on her bedroom windows within 15 minutes of her getting home that evening, and turning off her lights – she  is now getting very worried, she feels like there is someone outside her window in the dark just watching for her, angry that she is turning off her lights, trying to get her attention or scare her, she shivers and still tries to convince herself that branches or something else is potentially rubbing up against her bedroom windows.  She finally tells me (her mom) about this on Friday night – we don’t recall any bushes or trees being close enough to Morgan’s bathroom or bedroom windows to cause the noise.  I tell Morgan first thing in the morning, when it’s light out, we will go check to see if there is anything that could be causing the tapping.  Little did we know on this night what tomorrow we would discover.

  1. What baffles me is that this was written in 2012. How can you possibly remember in such detail…the exact day as to when this stalking began, times and how the day looked? Seems a bit odd….

    • What baffles me is how you could ask this question…of course I can remember – I kept detailed, almost daily notes (a timeline), because I was one of those people that had kept daily notes since I was 18 years old. It was a completely normal and natural thing for me to do. I am so happy I did, as I found out that is EXACTLY what victims of stalking are supposed to do. Always keep a detailed timeline…I wish mine had been even more complete, but at least I had one.
      Another reason your question baffles me is because I believe anyone in the world that has gone through a horrifying time, as in having their youngest daughter stalked and murdered, would not only remember in detail most everything that happened, but would have a hard time ever forgetting what happened. 5 years later remembering 24/7 is what happens – and it is horrible.

      • As a mother of a 21 year old daughter murdered in January of 2003 (date today, September 25 – 2020). I remember every single detail when my daughter went missing for 2 months and 1 day, when she was found, the autopsy done on the morning of her what was to be 22nd birthday, etc. I believe with all my heart and soul this mother know every detail.

        • Debra – I am so sorry, and so very heartbroken for you…I know, you know exactly how it feels to relive all the details, day in and day out.

          I feel your pain and understand. Today is the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims, I just want everyone to understand that we will never forget and never give up our search for justice. Sending love and prayers to you for peace, answers and justice.

  2. It’s such a tragedy. Thank goodness Morgan has such staunch advocates as her parents. I wish you hope and as much peace as is possible, given the daggers to the heart you and your family have endured.

    Morgan is no longer in pain. I hope your pain ebbs to where it is finally endurable.

I welcome your feelings and ideas on Morgan's Stalking
