Morgan Ingram was a young woman from Carbondale, Colorado who was found dead on December 2, 2011 by her parents Toni and Steve Ingram. After the cause and manner of death was changed several times from natural to porphyria insinuating Morgan took her own life, I just knew it was foul play.
After investigating this case independently, I did not have to speak personally with Toni Ingram to know this was a murder. I have always been a fan of true crime and as an enthusiast, what I found the most troubling with the stalking and death of Morgan Ingram was the toxicology reports. There were quite a few things I found wrong about it, in conjunction with the story itself. Morgan Ingram had 7,909 ng of Amitriptyline in her blood stream. Therapeutic range of Amitriptyline in the blood is considered to be somewhere between 10 ng and 250 ng. This was stated on the toxicology reports themselves. How is it possible that 7,909 ng of Amitriptyline was in her blood?
Then, the amount in her stomach (or gastric fluids) was 2,287,440 ng. Although I am not familiar about the therapeutic range or level of Amitriptyline in the stomach, it is evident that this is a very high dose. Now, when I examined the toxicology reports along with the police reports, they did not add up to me. An expired Amitriptyline prescription was sitting in Morgan Ingram's bedroom or bathroom with only a few pills missing from it. How can only a few pills missing from this prescription create this much Amitriptyline in both the blood stream and gastric fluids?
Then, when you look at the ratio of Amitriptyline to Noratriptyline in Morgan Ingram's blood stream, the numbers are so close in comparison to the gastric fluid ratio. How can someone consume only a few pills missing from an expired prescription of the said drug and still have such a close ratio of the drug in their blood stream? This is a sign of a one time dosage and/or injection of the drug hence why the numbers of Amitriptyline to Noratriptyline are close. 7,909 ng of Amitriptyline to 2,833 ng Noratriptyline. Then, when looking at the gastric fluids the amount of Amitriptyline is 2,287,440 ng to 9,431 ng of Noratriptyline.
Several of you who dislike me because I believe Morgan Ingram was murdered always tend to say "Sarah, there was sludge found in her stomach" or "Sarah, there are pill fragments in her stomach" etc. Yes, that is true, but I don't believe the high amount in her stomach was what killed her. I believe most pills are designed to be regurgitated when consumed in such heavy amounts. Granted, Morgan did not do that here. With only a few pills missing from an expired prescription, even if she would have consumed the entire pill bottle, how does that explain the amount in her blood stream?
The level in Morgan Ingram's blood stream is so obscenely high, it is virtually impossible to say this is a suicide as she had over 6,000 ng of Amitriptyline in her blood stream. 1,000 is considered to be death. Excluding the high amount in her stomach, the question I have is: how does one get this much Amitriptyline in their blood stream? It is virtually impossible to entertain the suicide theory, overlooking this very vital fact in the investigation.
Another reason why I believe Morgan Ingram was murdered was the fact she had no history of drugs. If you examine the toxicology results fully rather than one dimensionally, you will see that some of those drugs listed were not found in the house during the investigation. Cyclobenzaprine (or Flexeril), for instance is a drug used to treat muscle spasms. This drug was not found in the house yet was mysteriously found in Morgan Ingram's stomach. 175 ng of this drug was found in her gastric fluids. If a woman with no history of drugs let alone suicidal thoughts is found dead, how does this drug mysteriously end up in her stomach? When it was not found in the Ingram home.
When examining the autopsy photos, I definitely noticed quite a few red flags. Her face had marks on it, as if she were hit in the face. The first thing I noticed was her lips followed by her nose. It looked as if someone hit her several times in the face. Her body was also in a weird position, as her arms were raised up. And what makes me not only believe, but rightfully know this is foul play were how her hands were raised. She clenched them and signed two letters via sign language. She signed a "K" and an "N" for Keenan, the man she personally identified as the man stalking her. She also had weird marks on her neck as if she were strangled.
The interrogation video is another questionable source of information which I find to be quite plausible in this entire case. When Keenan was questioned simultaneously regarding the stalking and murder, he said, "in my opinion, I didn't do anything." He also denied being near the Ingram's residence, when it is clearly him on camera. Of course, what I found most shocking were Morgan's stalker's responses and how he used his hands to respond before throwing out Brooke Harris's name several times. This is a sign of deception and I am surprised how most of you who believe she committed suicide are overlooking this fact. Perhaps you haven't watched the interrogation video. I definitely believe he is involved in her death.
Now taking a look at the character of Morgan Ingram and her overall decorum. She was woman who was optimistic, who had no reason to escape. She wasn't running from her life. She was also an artist. I don't believe a woman with her artistry, including her creative writing talent would leave the world without writing a letter saying goodbye. Morgan Ingram was a free-spirited, happy woman with more drive than NASCAR. She also informed law enforcement that Keenan Vanginkel was the man stalking her. How is this fact being overlooked by skeptics who are pushing the suicide theory? She personally identified the man.
So, to answer your question - do you think Morgan Ingram was murdered? Yes, I do.
I could probably write an entire dissertation on why I believe this was a homicide; however, it is up to you to draw your own conclusions. The case is closed, but the proof is right in your face if really look at it. I want to also add that whatever lie you hear about me from those who believe Morgan Ingram did take her own life, I can tell you they are nothing more than lies in efforts to discredit me for publicly supporting Morgan Ingram, her mother Toni Ingram and the homicide theory. And no matter how many lies you spread, no matter lies you tell, it will not change the truth.
Have a nice day!
