As I write this blog about Morgan’s Stalking I wish to explain just a few things:

  1. This Blog is about Morgan Ingram, her stalking and her death, which I believe was murder. I did not wake up one morning and decide that it was murder. It was initially ruled Natural Causes, and many experts have given their opinion after a complete review of her death and every one directly contradicts the first pathologist and I am very confident of their qualifications.  It was at least two, maybe three months before I truly believed it and came to the inescapable conclusion it was a Homicide and it was horrific for me.  Even more so was that after nine months and many threats that were reported to the Coroner and Sheriffs Department it was reclassified as a suicide, as he had threatened to do.  So if you question a post on this blog or submit a comment anywhere questioning the manner or cause of death, you are questioning these experts, give your qualifications when you question, and I will treat your comment appropriately.
  2. This Blog along with the website MorganIngram.com seeks to raise awareness of stalking and the inherent dangers.  Anything that supports that goal is most likely very welcome.  Anything that takes me away from that goal is not.
  3. Morgan’s MEDICAL HISTORY is off limits, I have been assured that her H.I.P.A.A. right to privacy survives her death and I will have ZERO tolerance for anyone that does not respect Morgan’s rights.  I only wish I had been far stronger long ago.
  4. Drugs that directly caused Morgan’s death and are the equivalent of a bullet or a knife blade and are not what I consider to be a part or her MEDICAL HISTORY, rather part of her death investigation and those are open for discussion.

So as I strive for justice for Morgan and all victims of stalking please take note –

Don’t make comments asking the same question a different way over and over.  If a question comes in repeatedly and it comes from different people, I might think, well there is a blog, and this has happened many times.  Rather than edit your comment because something is inappropriate, but you raise a good question, you may never see your comment here, just the answer to your question in a blog.

A limitation of this Blog format is that I must approve a comment before I can edit it and I reserve the right to correct typos and change offensive language.  So if your comment needs major editing before it can be posted it may not make it.

Oh and more importantly, if you have something really supportive to say about me or my family, some nice observation about Morgan to share, or a really good suggestion, yeah, your comment is getting approved.

Names can be used as long as it is the TRUTH.  ?.. used to refer to Brooke Harris but now you will most likely see B. H.  ?..’s dad referred to James Harris AKA Jim Harris  but now you will most likely see J. H. ?..’s mom referred to Christina Harris but now you will most likely see C. H. 

All links submitted can be deleted.  The reason for this might be not easily understood at first, but eventually I got it. I have been warned that once a link appears here hosted on another server, the content might be great when the link is posted. The content also might change to something completely inappropriate later, and I will have no way of knowing this has happened. That does not sit well with me, so if you want to send an image or text to me in an email so that I can then post and have control of the content, I might.  If you want credit for your image, please say so, no problem, I already do that, look at the front page of the website.

  1. I have not read all of the questions…..but, I am curious if a toxicology investigation was done on a strand of Morgans hair. Even if you had it today in her hair brush. They are more accurate for timeline purposes.

  2. I feel so bad about this story. It is so scary. Did the photo look anything like the police investigators. Why else would they just refuse to do their jobs I would start with family and friends of the investigators my family will have you guys in our prayers.

  3. Hi! I’m just wondering what you think the motivation is for the Sheriff’s department in listing Morgan’s death as a suicide as opposed to a murder? I don’t trust the majority of law enforcement officers but I think when they are dishonest, it’s usually to protect themselves or one of their own. This case has me baffled. I hope you can get to the truth one day.

    • People ask me why a sheriff’s department would intentionally overlook evidence, even when it is brought to their attention. I wondered the same thing myself. Some people advised me that it was because that particular sheriff’s department was undertrained, lazy, incompetent, and much more…yes, that could be true in some cases. It could also be more serious and corrupt…sometimes bordering on a cover-up for different reasons. Figuring that out is always a challenge for co-victims. Again, why would a sworn law enforcement agency want to cover-up a murder? I have always respected and praised law enforcement, and still do, but not every agency out there has someone in charge of those amazing officers who is honest and law abiding themselves…it always comes down to who is in charge and sometimes you have to follow the money trail.

      I did some digging, after speaking with so many other families who are in the same situation as us, who have also had experts who have determined their loved ones were murdered, but in those cases their sheriff refused to investigate too. In those cases the coroner determined the wrong manner of death, contrary to the evidence – easy way to get out of investigating a suspicious death. Murder investigations cost a lot of money – so, if they have a good excuse not to investigate, they don’t. In the cases where the coroner misrules on the manner of death, stating it was either, ‘Natural’ ‘Accidental’ or Suicide the sheriff does not have to investigate any evidence…they should still investigate, but that is not what usually happens. Then I read about the sheriff’s budget…a sheriff has total control on where his department’s money goes. If he/she does not want to spend it on a costly investigation into murder and he/she wants their county crime stats to reflect less crime, then they can choose not to investigate, no matter what is presented to them – so I thought, this is crazy!!!

      But then after researching a little in the case of Sheriff Lou Valario, the sheriff in our county of Garfield, CO, there had not been ANY murders reflected in their crime stats for a whole 10 years before Morgan’s murder and including Morgan…nothing…hard to imagine, as Garfield County was the largest fracking county in Colorado at that time and drugs and violence were definitely happening there. Then I saw an article where Sheriff Vallario was boasting about having a lot of extra money left over in his budget, I believe the article mentioned around $100,000 (note: sheriffs get to keep whatever is not spent to use on whatever they feel is necessary for they agency (with no oversight…it is completely up to the sheriff) – in Vallario’s case it was to be used on things like a tank, etc. for his war against drugs…so much for rapes and murders…I don’t think he cares too much about that type of crime. I am pretty sure his macho and misogynistic self gets really excited at the idea of watching his men drive down the street in this huge armored BearCat…and as you can see in the article, the funds were already there waiting to be spent on something…not murder investigations, but a moment in history when a tank may be needed in a drug bust. https://www.aspentimes.com/news/garfield-county-eyes-armored-vehicle/ “It’s all an illusion,” said Jim Fisher, a former professor of criminal justice at Edinboro University and author of a book on SWAT teams. “The fact your police department just bought an armored vehicle does not make you safer. It’s going to make you poorer, because your taxes will go up to pay for training and maintenance.” Why should these small counties and towns to have tanks that someday could be used against their citizens? http://www.nbcnews.com/id/41912754/ns/technology_and_science-tech_and_gadgets/t/why-do-americas-police-need-armored-tank/#.XY4qIS2ZORs

      Sheriffs have a career that affords them tons of power with practically no oversight from anyone, not voters, not other law enforcement or politicians, so corruption can be easy to get away with. Sheriffs are elected, not hired. Police Chiefs are hired, so they live under completely different rules. Then I was shocked to read, what Mirya Holman, a political scientist at Tulane University who studies sheriffs said, “A combination of large budgets and little information provides an environment where corruption is certainly possible, if not probable.”

      “Because sheriffs control their own budgets, they can be a little more secret, or a lot more secret, than a police chief who has to answer to a city council or a city manager,” says Seth Stoughton, a former police officer who teaches at the University of South Carolina law school. “The problem of corruption has plagued sheriffs since their inception. Nowhere is this truer than when it comes to raising money on the side, hosting pig roasts and golf tournaments as fundraisers for the nonprofit foundations they’ve set up.” “Any outside foundations that are created — and I think we have four that were created by sheriffs down the line — we don’t even have the authority to audit those things,” says Joe Dill, a member of the Greenville County Council in South Carolina.

      In theory, sheriffs should be highly accountable, since they have to answer directly to voters. But in practice, while a police chief may be lucky to serve three years, it’s not unusual for a sheriff to be around for 20. There’s often meager interest in challenging a sheriff politically. In a small county, there may be only a few other people around with the minimum years of law enforcement experience required for the job. And with most counties dominated politically by one party or the other, sheriffs benefit from the limited attention voters pay to the post.”

      With all that being said, even though no one will run against Sheriff Vallario, we will never give up fighting for justice for Morgan will continue to pursue all avenues to have her case investigated.
