Beware the psychopath…

Doesn’t this sound familiar?  Sure sounds like the ones that stalked and murdered Morgan!

“Since psychopaths wallow in seediness, cruelty and perversion, they enjoy not only lying, but also waving their lies under the noses of the people they dupe.”

“When he/she gets away a lie, he/she feels a cheap thrill. When caught in a lie, he/she feels no shame. He/she simply covers it up with another lie or, when that’s not an option, blames you for his/her wrongdoing or accuses you of behaving in the same manner. ”

“Psychopaths lie pathologically to others about pretty much everything: their past, their present and their future. Whatever lies you discover about the psychopath in your life are likely to be just the tip of the iceberg.”

“Needless to say, in reality, engaging in deception and manipulation are not a sign of excess of intelligence. They’re a symptom of lack of character.”

“Once you see through his lack of character, his/her reactions also become transparent.” Claudia Moscovici, psychopathyawareness…/why-do-psycho…/

Ultimate Obsession…

In a story that you may have heard about in the news – an American woman named Ashley Olsen was murdered in Italy.  The first time I heard about this was last night.  I received the information from another victim.  The victim I have been in contact with is an American citizen (like Ashley), but she was attacked in the United States, also in her own home.  But like Ashley she was attacked by a person that was not a US citizen, a person from another country that has still been allowed to reside in this country.  These stories are similar in many ways.  Without getting into it I would just like to say I believe both of these women were targeted.

The first article I pulled up about the Ashley Olsen case was this article by Fox6Now,

Italian media: Ashley Olsen, American artist killed in Italy may have been strangled with cord or rope 

In this article they mention that authorities are also looking into pictures on Olsen’s Instagram feed in which she said, “I have a stalker.” From this article it sounds like this was a very violent death.

Then this morning there were all kinds of news feeds that there has been an arrest – here is an article by CNN:

Man arrested in connection with death of American woman in Italy: Prosecutor


A photograph released by Italian police of suspect Cheikh Tidiane Diaw.

Police believe that Olsen and Diaw, an illegal immigrant from Senegal, met at the city’s Montecarla nightclub and left to go back to Olsen’s place together, where they had consensual sex.  This is where I would like to interject…the victim Ashley Olsen is dead and can not speak about what really happened to her, so is there a possibility that (like in the case above that happened in the US) she did allow this person to come home with her, but did not want to have sex, and that is why she was attacked and murdered?  Was she targeted?  It is really upsetting to me when I hear that a suspect claims to have had consensual sex with a victim because authorities have found his DNA.  Sometimes that may be true, and other times it isn’t even close to the truth…that is what an investigation is for.  Not just a surface scratching of the information kind of investigation, but a real in-depth investigation, because when it comes to murder the victim deserves just that.

Here is another story about a female stalker that just got 50 years in prison, and here I ask the question, “Is 50 years really enough?”  There are many cases of extremely lethal, obsessed stalkers.

Woman Who Stalked, Killed Ex-Boyfriend Gets 50 Years to Life in Prison.  The ultimate obsession and yes, just as in Morgan’s case obsessed stalkers can and sometimes do commit murder.

Saudades…a message from Brazil

typingLast night I received a message through this website & this is what it said:

Hello! I’m from Brazil. I heard about Morgan’s case right now through ID channel. 
I’m so sorry about her. She’s beatiful girl, smile and she have a amazing spirit. Yes, she Is, because she’s alive trough The strength of yours and justice must be done . you guys do not give up.
There must be someone out there who knows something else. Someone close to her. I’ll pray for you find out a evidence, a link , something. 

Saudades – Brazilian expression to say: I’m miss you, but something more than this.

Keep faith, you know her better than anyone. 


Ps. I’m so sorry about my poor english. Patricia

I was very moved by this when I read it. I had never heard of this word before, but it seemed to touch on how I have felt for a very long time.

From the moment I knew Morgan was no longer with us I had this extremely strong feeling come over me…in fact I started to tell people what I was feeling that very morning.  My first thought, of course, was disbelief.  I wanted a reset button to make it all go away and turn the clock back to the day before – when Morgan was still alive.  I yearned to have her back and did not want to give in to the understanding that she was no longer with us.  Then my next feeling, a very strong feeling, as though I was receiving a message from someone, I “felt” that Morgan was okay and bathed in white light and love, that she is still there, I just could not see her. I “knew” I would see her again, I could “feel” that she was still on her journey, and she was going to still be around to help with what was going to come next.  I had no idea what that meant.  I could not even comprehend at that time what was going to happen. and then I “felt” that I had to remember everything, because there was meaning to what had just happened…it was going to change many lives and save many people. Maybe I was “seeing” Morgan’s legacy.

Saudades – It can, yes, be used for the feeling of missing a dear person who has passed away, but It is also a “bittersweet (…) yearning and hopefulness towards something over which one has no control” (same wikipedia article). In that sense, it’s also the hopeful yearning of someone (or something, a place for example) which you know you’ll see again but, can’t right now. by Helder Ribeiro, Native Brazilian Portuguese speaker.

“Light A Candle”

Light a candle,
see it glow,
watch it dance,
when you feel low,
think of me,
think of light,
I’ll always be here,
day or night,
a candle flickers,
out of sight,
but in your heart,
I still burn bright,
think not of sadness,
that I’m not near,
think of gladness,
and joyous cheer,
I have not left,
I am not gone,
I’m here to stay
my loved one,
so when you light a candle
and you see it glow
and you watch it dance
in your heart you’ll know
that I would never leave you
even when you feel so blue
I’m sitting up here with the Lord
and now watching over you  RIP Morgan

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Ingram,

I hope that you all find comfort in the support the blog has brought to you. I think of Morgan often. I’m a mother to two girls, 8 and 2 1/2, and two boys, 17 and 18. I was also stalked and beat by my ex-husband. I know that you would give anything to have your daughter back, but please know that the story you tell of her last year has brought awareness to so many about stalking and comfort to many that have endured it. Morgan was a lucky girl to have parents like you. It sounds like you gave her a wonderful life. I’m so sorry for what you’ve had to endure due to evils in this world.

Here are my candle light pictures in honor of Morgan. I lit two; one for Morgan and one for women across the world that have endured stalking and fear at the hands of another human being.


One candle lit for Morgan and all the stalking victims out there.
I am very sorry for you loss.

Kind regards,

Nina and Ellen in Sweden

Here’s a pic of the candle I am burning for Morgan & victims of stalking today. After seeing the Dr Phil show about Morgan I began reading your blog as I was left wanting more information. I felt Dr Phil made you to seem a bit of a biased mother. However when Brooke appeared and her first response to accusations was ” Where’s the proof?”. This raised a big red flag for me and after reading you blog daily I have found it obvious that Morgan was not responsible for her own death and did not die of natural causes. I am sorry that you & your family & everyone that loves Morgan have had to deal with such inaction and irresponsibility on the part of your local law enforcement. I hope the fresh eyes you have investigating Morgan’s stalking and death provide you some answers and justice. I just cannot believe that such a productive, beautiful, brilliant full of love and life young woman can be stalked and murdered and the sick scum responsible can still roam the streets looking for a new victim.

And the last candle picture below that I am posting today is from a person that I will forever call a good friend, even though I have never met her in my life.  She was a retired sheriff at the time that she contacted me, as well as a mother of 2 young children.  She had also been a member of Webseluths, until she saw what they had started to say about Morgan’s case on one of their threads…she contacted me and ASKED great questions about the facts of the case – instead of just pretending she knew what the truth was.  I trusted her and started to send her information and documents.  She did some research and helped me find even more information during our investigation.  She was an amazing woman…and I say she was amazing because in the last year she lost her life to cancer and is no longer with us.  She was unable to see Morgan get justice.  I know she will be so happy looking down from Heaven when justice is finally found.  I will miss her greatly, as will her family.  The world has lost another angel.
More candle pictures will be posting…thanks for your patience.
