Writing down the details and feelings of your experiences is not only extremely healing, it can help others that are suffering in silence. If you would like to share a short form of your story here on this blog please post a comment here and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I would then be able to post it for you here as a blog post – you can have your name on it or I can keep it anonymous if you would rather do it that way.
I know stalking is terrifying. I know stalking changes you forever. It’s hard to comprehend how many victims and survivors of stalking have contacted me over the years to thank me for sharing my story – I have been told it has helped so many, and that makes my heart happy. So, now I would love to see others share their story as well, in the hope that more victims and survivors will get something out of those stories too. Thank you so much!
As our family gets ready to welcome the new year, our intentions are focused on getting an investigation opened into our youngest daughter Morgan’s murder. This is a goal we will never stop working towards.
We “believe” the things we have been waiting for to happen in Morgan’s case will happen in 2020 – so as we enter the new year, we believe with all our hearts, that Morgan and our family will find justice. We will never cease to stop believing that there can be justice in this world – to fail only means we stopped trying…we will NEVER stop trying. #JusticeForMorgan
There are many wonderful warriors in this world, those that are not willing to stand by and ignore injustice – these warriors are not always out in the limelight, but work hard, behind the scenes, to right many wrongs…these are our heroes, and our family thanks them for all their help!
“Take a leap of faith and begin this wondrous new year by believing. Believe in yourself. And believe that there is a loving Source – a Sower of Dreams – just waiting to be asked to help you make your dreams come true.” Sarah Ban Breathnach
The DNA from the bite mark on Rasmussen’s body was matched to her killer, Stephanie Lazarus. Rasmussen’s dad tried for many, many years to get justice for his daughter, saying, “I am 100 percent confident that Stephanie Lazarus killed my daughter.” Lazarus’ family argued that she couldn’t be the murderer…but in the end she was convicted of murder. Sound familiar?
Why am I posting about this case? Because I have no idea if it was a twist of fate, or just a coincidence (I don’t really believe in coincidences), but during Morgan’s stalking, just one month before her murder, I purchased the book you see above, about the Rasmussen case on my Kindle, but I never had a chance to read it until long after Morgan’s murder…the strange thing about that is the book spoke about Rasmussen’s killer being a police officer, evidence going missing, evidence destroyed, a bite mark on her body, and her father fighting for 2 1/2 decades to get justice.
At the time I read the book I had no idea that there were similarities to Morgan’s case. I still had not yet seen a picture of the bite mark on Morgan’s arm. I had not yet seen the picture of the saliva on the bite mark on Morgan’s arm, that showed up under the UV light. I did not know that the main suspect in Morgan’s stalking was being protected by the sheriffs, a warrant being suppressed, plea deals made, etc. Nope – I was completely in the dark at that time, and unaware of all the things I now know.
All that being said, it seems interesting that this book, just like everything else I have come across in the past 8 years, has helped me ask important questions. Those questions I have asked have led me to a lot of solid evidence in Morgan’s case, evidence that is shocking, because the sheriffs and pathologist knew about it at the time, and kept it from us – they covered it up! Many people believe Morgan was murdered, and many others seek to keep her case from ever being investigated, repressing the evidence, why? I believe Morgan’s case is not an isolated case in Colorado, and once Morgan’s case is actually investigated, and indictments made, it will cause many other cases to be reopened…it will be a nightmare for the state of Colorado. That alone can cause most of the push-back we have fought against all these years.
And just like Nels Rasmussen, we will never give up, and we will see justice for Morgan, eventually – please keep hope for justice alive in your thoughts and prayers…Morgan deserves it, as well as any future victims, if her murderer is not brought to justice.
