ALWAYS REMEMBER AND KEEP THEM IN YOUR HEART
Morgan with her camera photographing our hotel room. This was taken on our very last vacation together before her murder. She loved keeping a photo journal of all her journeys…I know Morgan is still on her journey just on a different plane now.
I miss my youngest child every moment of every day and I tell her every single day, “Morgan your dad and I will never give up our quest for justice for you as well as all others who no longer have a voice – I love you sweetheart.”
Please share with everyone you know in Colorado.
According to the FBI almost 15,000 homicides were committed in 2012 across our country. That’s roughly five out of every 100,000 people killed due to senseless violence. What the statistics won’t tell you is that many of these homicides remain unsolved today, and join the thousands of cases that date back decades, and our daughter Morgan is one of those cases.
