Survivors combines investigative journalism and real cases to highlight the growing number of unsolved cases, issues with police transparency, and cases where corruption interrupts due diligence.
Stalking is a pervasive & serious threat! Only 2 days after the felony stalking detective warned us that Morgan’s stalker was most likely going to escalate his behavior – she was murdered! What we didn’t know at that time was that he had “tipped off” the suspects just 2 days earlier that Morgan would be doing her on-camera interview the following week and a possible arrest could be made…so, I guess killing the witness to the crime makes the crime go away?
Morgan’s manner of death was incorrectly concluded as a “Natural Death” for the first 9 months, then after I was threatened by the pathologist to “back off with my questions or else he could change her manner of death to accidental or suicide,” he changed it to “Suicide,” again with no evidence, another incorrect conclusion. All the scientific facts and medical certainty pointed to foul play, but the sheriff would not investigate.
There are no checks and balances when it comes to this happening to a loved one who’s manner of death has been incorrectly listed. Morgan was killed during an ACTIVE INVESTIGATION INTO HER FELONY STALKING and NO investigation into her death ever happened!
The Washington Post did research on only REPORTED cases of homicides, (like many of these stories in the book, so many suspicious deaths that are real homicides go unreported because because they have been misreported. 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!”
It is estimated that 14,249 people each year are murdered nationwide…this is 39 murders per day – and that is only the reported murders!
The National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims on September 25 came to be after the U.S. Senate unanimously passed resolutions on October 16, 2007 (S. Res. 326) and the U.S. House of Representatives on May 14, 2007 (H. Res. 223). On this day we honor the memory of victims who have been killed by violence. We also acknowledge the long-term trauma that survivors of this violence deal with every day. Survivors and co-victims include family and friends, as well as their communities…they all suffer, every single day, in their own way. For each and every victim there are many co-victims left behind, they are called the survivors.
Raising awareness can bring about positive changes for victims and survivors, that is why we must never forget the victims. Families deserve answers and everyone deserves justice.
It has been said, “Awareness is most certainly the greatest agent for change,” and that is exactly what FOHVAMP http://www.unresolvedhomicides.org is trying to accomplish…change. Not only in supporting the co-victims, but also by trying to bring about positive changes for victims and survivors, by leveling the ‘playing field’ for victims, as well as co-victims, for those families and friends left behind after a horrific murder.
Let us NEVER forget. Please remember to read the book, “Survivors” by Dennis N. Griffin https://www.amazon.com/dp/195071201X

We Are The Survivors
There are those of us whose mothers have been taken from our arms,
There are those of us with children we could not keep safe from harm.
There are those of us who’ve lived to see our fathers lose their lives,
and in our dreams we’ll keep them all alive,
cause each and every one of us survives.
We are the survivors, left behind to carry on.
We are the survivors, joined together we are strong.
We will speak out for our loved ones who were not given a choice.
We are the survivors, hear our voice.
Maybe some of us have brothers who were here, but now they’re gone,
You can ask about our sisters, because their memory is strong.
We are sons and we are daughters, we are husbands, we are wives,
and friends who try to keep their dreams alive,
And each and every one of us survives.
With a part of us that never heals, and a fear of the unknown,
There’s a strength in knowing through it all, you’re not alone.
We are the survivors, hear our voice.
