Accident, Suicide or Murder: Morgan Ingram

Morgan Ingram

As many are already aware, on Saturday, Oxygen aired Accident, Suicide or Murder a show which acknowledges, recognizes and examines cases thoroughly that have been either unsolved or deserve answers. The season finale featured the stalking and death of Morgan Ingram. 

The show starts out with drone footage of the picturesque Carbondale, Colorado before a dialog took place between retired detective Paul Holes and true crime producer and journalist Kelly McLear regarding her case. Wanting answers, the dynamic duo decided to dig deep into the case to find out if it was an accident, a suicide or a murder. I watched the show with an open mind, disregarding my own point of view, in case I was wrong to believe this was a homicide. 

I watched the show. I believe the show was spun to fit a narrative that the vast majority of status quo want to hear. Most of these shows are aired for entertainment purposes, hence why people watch them to begin with. However, a lot of facts have been left out as Oxygen producers can only fit so much into a 90-minute time frame.  

To be honest, I was very disappointed not by their conclusion of her death, but by how they depicted Morgan Ingram and her stalking altogether. I was also modestly miffed by how they portrayed Toni and Steve Ingram. With that said, questions that were not answered on Accident, Suicide or Murder that I would have liked to have been addressed include:

Question #1: Morgan Ingram had an obscene level of Amitriptyline in her blood. Over 6 times the lethal limit. So, if 500 ng to 1,000 ng of Amitriptyline in the blood is lethal, how did Morgan Ingram get 7,909 ng in her blood stream? 

Question #2: Morgan Ingram had 7,909 ng of Amitriptyline in her blood stream which I addressed previously. She also had a level of 2,833 ng of Noratripyline in her blood stream, as well. In her gastric fluids (or stomach) Morgan had 2,287,440 ng of Amitriptyline with a Noratriptyline level of 9,431 ng. Look at how close the numbers are of Amitriptyline to Noratriptyline in the blood. This leads me to the important question--why is the ratio so close in the blood versus the level in her stomach or gastric fluids?

Question #3: The beanie hat has a sufficient level of DNA on it. The forensic investigators did not even flinch nor entertain the idea of testing this item, as they were distracted by the polygraph test results of both Toni and Steve Ingram. The polygraph results of Mr. and Mrs. Ingram overshadowed this. That hat should have been tested regardless of the lie detector results. Why wasn't it?

Question #4: Why was Keenan Vanginkel never interviewed? He was the perpetrator, the stalker and yet is painted as innocent, but was not asked to take any lie detector test even though he offered to take one in 2011 and 2012. Have the investigators forgotten about his extensive criminal record including his history with criminal trespassing? Or do they think because he's alive, he is off limits? 

Question #5: Keenan Vanginkel was seen on the cameras walking up the Ingrams' driveway only later to deny it was him when interrogated by detective (now coroner) Robert Glassmire. Why is this fact being overlooked? It is because Morgan Ingram is dead and Keenan Vanginkel is living? Currently, there are no laws protecting the deceased. 

Question #6: In the autopsy photos, it looks like Morgan had blood on her lip and her face had been smashed. There were also marks around her neck, as if she were strangled. Another disturbing observation I made was how her arms were risen and hands were clenched. Evidently this proves she didn't take her own life, but the question I have is--how can they reach the accidental conclusion knowing this fact?

Additionally I have some concerns regarding the episode. These concerns include:

Morgan Ingram was not a suicidal person. She was artistic with more drive than NASCAR. Her character was not flawless and far from pristine, but was not how she was portrayed in this series. She was not suicidal. She was not running nor escaping from life. I noticed some victim blaming throughout the series which I despise. As I stated previously, there are no laws that protect the deceased. 

Both Toni and Steve Ingram took a polygraph test regarding the stalking and murder of Morgan. Granted it is not a good thing to fail, but I believe as both of them are in their 60's, going through a lot of tension and stress, unable to properly grieve, I believe this is why they failed some of the questions given to them. I don't believe they are deceptive or have bad intentions like some of you think. I've spoken with both personally for hours and have heard both of them cry. They are not investigators. They just want answers and have every right to question what happened to their daughter. After all, they knew Morgan more than anyone in this world and it isn't like her to commit suicide. 

When they interviewed Danny Rodden, I had to admit I was a little shocked. Rodden is not the same guy from 2011 evidently as he ended up getting back into drugs (relapsing) several years ago and is now a registered sex offender in the state of Colorado. As troublesome as this is, I don't know why his testimony was used unless it was for entertainment purposes to allow you, the audience to reach your own conclusions about Morgan's death. 

Stalking is a serious crime which was not taken seriously in this case. They played recordings of Steve Ingram mentioning Morgan may possibly be contemplating suicide. Everyone has their down days. There have been times I thought about ending my life, but then I realize--I love life way too much, which Morgan said on Facebook in her final days of being alive on earth. In fact, it was her final post before she was murdered. 

Conclusion

I felt like the series was put together greatly with three points of view and possibilities; however, a lot of what they shown is not the whole story. With that said, my opinion has not changed. I still believe Morgan Ingram was murdered and this was in fact, a homicide. Until you can answer my questions, I don't have to listen to any of the banal ad hominem or strange internet theories to support inaccurate narratives. 

I have every right to my opinion and I want answers.

Stalked In Alabama: What To Do

The Capitol Building

Alabama, the 30th largest state of the United States of America. Also known as the Yellowhammer state in the Heart of Dixie, this southeastern state is the 24th most populated state among 50. Home to Redstone Arsenal, University of Alabama and Maxwell Air Force, it is estimated that over 25 million people visit the state every year.

Stalking is defined as the unwanted and repeated contact towards a person, people and/or group. As a form of intimidation and harassment, stalking is simply contact that is not wanted. And when that unwanted contact becomes to be a nuance, that is when it becomes stalking. As a victim of stalking, I have found it very difficult to find information regarding this topic. As I often contemplate why it is hard to find a resource regarding this, my only guess is because a lot of people do not take this seriously. And I personally believe most have never experienced this hence why they refuse to help those they cannot relate with. I'm noticing many cases of true crime within the last decade of very obvious murders being painted as suicides (Morgan Ingram, for instance) and limited care from law enforcement. I can only ask - why?

Alabama is a state with a lot of history and starts the countdown of the 50 nifty United States from the 13 original colonies. And guess what? The great news is, there is help in Alabama for those of you who are victims of stalking. According to several law enforced in 2012, under various codes stalking is very much punishable by law in the state of Alabama.

Under code of Alabama § 13A-6-90. Stalking in the first degree. (2012) This code states that a crime of stalking in the first degree is classified as a class C felony. This means that a person who intentionally harasses and follows with the intent to harm you is guilty. This includes threats, whether expressed or implied. If you feel you are in fear for your life and fear death of the suspected stalker, this is where this code applies.

Under code of Alabama § 13A-6-90.1. Stalking in the second degree. (2012) This code states that a crime of stalking in the second degree is considered a class B misdemeanor. This means that a person who intentionally and/or repeatedly harasses you in efforts to initiate unwanted contact whether via telephone, email, etc. is guilty. This also includes any third-party source who makes contact for the said person. Enforced again in the Summer of 2017 under H.B. 498, after the perpetrator has been informed to cease contact, the end result is guilty in the second degree.

Under code of Alabama § 13A-6-91. Aggravated stalking in the first degree. (2012) This code states that a crime of aggravated stalking in the first degree is classified as a class B felony. Any person who violates the provisions of § 13A-6-90(a) including court orders and restraining orders, will be tried under Alabama law for aggravated stalking.

Under code of Alabama § 13A-6-91.1. Aggravated stalking in the second degree (2012) This code states that a crime of aggravated stalking in the second degree is classified as a class C felony. Any person who violates the provisions of § 13A-6-90 including court orders and restraining orders, will be tried under Alabama law for aggravated stalking.

With action comes evidence. In order to both effectively and efficiently report stalking, it is very crucial to keep a timeline or a log of the events. This is what is often referred to as a course of conduct. Everything shared before the threat, leading up to the threat and to present as the stalking is persisting. And speaking of threats, a credible threat is very vital when reporting stalking. This can be a threat that is expressed and/or even implied. If you feel that the person stalking you is scaring you or making you fear for your life, you have the right to report this. You are constitutionally protected by law to report any crime. If you feel your life is danger, it is very crucial to report it.

Keep in mind that I am referring to only criminal law. At this time, Alabama does not have any laws to protect stalking victims civilly; however, with the right push and shove, we can hopefully change these laws for the victims in the Alabama area. Alabama is also a state that does not offer address protection from stalkers. And because of this unfortunately, Alabama currently does not offer any stalking protection orders; however, stalking is still punishable under criminal stalking laws and federal laws.

Speaking of federal laws, there are quite a few that really play a role in helping stalking victims. According to federal law code 18 USCS § 2261A. Stalking. (2013) any person who plays any reasonable fear of death in another person is considered a stalker and therefore can and will be punished as the law sees fit. With the intent to harass, injure and even intimidate, any person who does this can be punished. And under title 2261(b), this is all punishable by law. You can read more about the stalking federal law here.

Over millions of women are stalked around the world. The time is now to recognize that stalking is a crime and should not be ignored. I will do my best to update this article periodically. If you have any additional information you would like to share, please do so in the comments.

Stay tuned as I explore the largest state in the United States, Alaska. With not even a million residence totally, the Last Frontier is a state worth exploring. Purchased in 1867 from Russia for a little over $7 million (that is about 2-3 cents per acre), Alaska is "North to the Future" but how are their stalking laws?

Do I think Morgan Ingram was murdered?

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!

Tavalodet Mobarak Morgan Ingram

Light a candle to remember
Morgan Ingram and her life.
Morgan Ingram was a beautiful and bright soul with a bold personality to match. She had more drive than NASCAR and a penchant for the pen, but one dark day in December it was all taken away from her.

You see, Morgan was an individual who welcomed many different people into her life. As some of those people were light who shared the same big dreams and passions, there were those who were dark and had no direction unless it was to the nearest party to get loaded and laid.

As a gifted woman with a polished yet free-spirited personality, Morgan was stalked. Of course, if you have never been stalked, you would have zero idea of what she went through. As a result, her entire life was turned upside until one day everything changed forever.

Morgan Ingram was murdered on December 2, 2011 in her Carbondale, Colorado home. Today, we honor the force and face of stalking, as we celebrate her birthday. I decided to light a candle and I encourage you, my readers and friends to light one too. May karma find its way, so we can eventually have justice one day. Gone, but never forgotten. RIP Morgan Ingram!

10 reasons why I believe Morgan Ingram was murdered

As many of you are already aware, I have had the opportunity to interview Toni Ingram, the mother of Morgan Ingram, a beautiful and bright young woman from Carbondale, Colorado who was stalked and murdered in early December of 2011. When I was with Yahoo! Voices, I published the first interview in late November of 2012. In July of 2014, Yahoo! got rid of the Voices platform. As a result, all exclusive rights to the content I produced were reverted back to me, so I took it upon myself to publish it on this  blog. You can read the original interview here.

In April of 2014, a few months prior to the closing of Yahoo! Voices, I had the opportunity to speak with Toni again. I had a lot of questions, as does anyone who has garnered an interest in this particular case. A lot of things happened in that particular time frame and there was a gap between 2012 to 2014. You can read the second interview here. Then, in August I interviewed Morgan's brother Ryan who also shared some very interesting details with me. You can read that interview here.

1. Drug Levels - When looking at the toxicology reports, I noticed quite a few things that didn't make sense to me and one of them includes the amount of drug in her blood. Morgan Ingram had 7,909 ng of Amitriptyline in her blood stream. With 900-1,000 ng being considered "lethal" how can one explain the remaining 6,909-7,009 amount in Morgan's blood? You can listen to my podcast about this here.

2. Gastric Fluids - Morgan Ingram had an old prescription of Amitriptyline that expired over 2 years prior to her murder. When the bottle was found, only a few pills were missing from this particular prescription. Why is that? With 2,287,440 ng in Morgan's gastric fluids, it is impossible that the drug was from that particular bottle. Even if Morgan would have taken the entire bottle, it would not reach such a high amount. This is also explained in my part 1 podcast, which you can listen to here.

3. Date Rape Cocktail - The toxicology reports tell a story. A very tragic yet sad story of a woman who was murdered. When looking at them, I could not help but notice very small amounts of drugs. Upon research, I discovered that they are used frequently in a date rape cocktail. Why would Morgan Ingram have Cyclobenzaprine in her system? I also discussed this particular association in the podcast too.

4. Police Reports - When I first read the police reports, I noticed quite a few discrepancies. One of the major issues, problems per se that I had with the reports was only a few sentences for a month's work. At first, I assumed the detective on the case was lazy, but then I noticed that some of the paragraphs looked edited and changed. I also noticed that some of the sentences were unfinished and looked as if content was removed swiftly without checking for any errors.

5. Rape Kit - Saying "no sign of sexual trauma" does not mean rape kit nor does it mean a rape kit was ever done. For a young woman who was a victim of stalking, why was no rape kit administered? Was Morgan Ingram ignored by law enforcement? An unidentified mark was picked up by a blue light on Morgan's chest. Why was this ignored?

6. Autopsy Photos - The autopsy photos show strangle marks as well as, a swollen and bloody lip. The photos also show other unidentified marks on Morgan's face and body. Not only do the autopsy photos reveal signs of a struggle, they also prove that Morgan Ingram did not take her own life.

7. Street Clothes - When Morgan Ingram was originally found dead, she was discovered wearing street clothes. A light colored shirt with a black bra. She also wore jeans that she didn't wear often and they were unbuttoned too. What was the killer's intention exactly? The man who took Morgan's life obviously didn't want to go purchase a tarp late at night into early morning.

8. Refusal of Dr. Dobersen's opinion - The pathologist on this case changed the cause and manner several times before attempting to come to the hypothetical opinion that Morgan Ingram committed suicide and died of Porphyria. This, of course is so false. When Dr. Dobersen attempted to intervene and give is opinion of why he believes this is a homicide, the pathologist on this case refused and attempted to belittle Dobersen in the process. Why would he do that? Considering Dobersen's credentials outweigh his and he has more experience with these types of crimes too.

9. Rainer Jundt - Why did the detective and sheriff only interview a few people who knew Morgan Ingram? Why did they not speak with Rainer Jundt who knew her more than anyone other than Toni and Steve? Rainer had a lot to tell my boyfriend Joe in this exclusive interview.

10. Suicide Note - Morgan Ingram heavily embraced the arts. She loved singing, playing piano, painting, dancing and writing. If she intended to take her own life, don't you think you think she would have left a suicide note? She didn't leave a suicide note because she did not take her own life. She was not a suicidal person. Even her friends can vouch for that. You can read my interview with them here.

Note - If Morgan were to take any pills, don't you think she would have went for medication stronger than Amitriptyline? There are many things she could have taken. Think about it.

I have always had an interest in true crime. When I was a little girl, I would love to watch Unsolved Mysteries. The one with Robert Stack (RIP). Everything from the stories to Stack's haunting voice, the show was one of the greatest ever on television. And although my experience with this particular genre is quite new, I have still managed to research and discover that not everything is what it seems and that evil is very much alive and well in the world right now. You may disagree with what I have to say, as some of you may not be able to handle these facts and attempt to discredit me by spreading lies about me, but guess what? I don't care (if you do, you can read here). Why? Because these are my reasons for believing that Morgan Ingram was murdered.

Morgan Ingram: 4 years since her murder

Today is December 2, 2015.
Today I am lighting candles for Morgan Ingram.
A very bright yet beautiful young woman from Carbondale, Colorado tragically lost her life to murder four years ago from today, December 2, 2011. When you look at this figure, it's been 1,460 days since Morgan was murdered. That is over 35,000 hours. That is how long it has been since her death. That she has been gone.
 
When I think about what has happened these past few years, there is a lot of contemplation and observation. I have been under scrutiny for quite sometime since publically defending Toni and Steve Ingram as well as, the homicide theory. I have been libeled, slandered, cyber-stalked and bullied. My face and name are associated with a plethora of lies created by only a handful of people. Yet, these lies are not even true. What I have contemplated stems from thoughts in the beginning which lead to big questions - do I regret supporting Morgan? Do I regret supporting Toni? Do I regret supporting Steve? My answer - absolutely not. Because I know what is true and I know what is false. I also know that the truth about what happened to Morgan Ingram will eventually come out.
 
This leads me to the question - do I believe justice will happen? Absolutely. Why? Because a lie can only be hidden for so long. Every single lie that is being told and sold to you-whether it is by Morgan's murderer, his family and friends, along with those who support and believe him and them, cannot continue as those people are sublimely comforted by them. These people did not know Morgan, they did not know Toni nor do they know Toni now, and they do not know me or anyone else who supports the homicide theory.
 
The facts speak for themselves. With 7,909 ng of Amitriptyline in Morgan's blood, there is no way she committed suicide. Absolutely impossible. Especially when looking at the drug ratio of Amitriptyline to Noratriptyline. Even if she would have taken the entire pill bottle, how does one explain that amount in her blood stream? It's easier for law enforcement to sweep this under the rug of lies and deceit while abrasively attacking the victim, her family and those who support them, but if you look at the facts you will see this is a homicide based on the level of drug in her blood. A suicide is easier to create because let's face it, this means not having to spend money, let alone time or make any efforts to do anything at all. A suicide is easier for those who refuse to do their job and fear they will lose their job.
 
It's very evident that the truth hurts, but it's better to be hurt by it than to be fully supported and comforted by a lie. A lie that is so deceptive and big, it is being sold to you right now as I type this out. Truth be told, the big lie that is being sold to you is just a way to distract and prevent the truth from being exposed. Time is relative and the waiting game sucks, but evidently things must happen before that happens. And when I say that, I mean the truth.
 
Lighting candles and praying there is justice
for Morgan Ingram.
I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, as I believe the truth is a very powerful thing. So no matter how many lies are told, how many lies are spread about Morgan, her mother, myself and anyone else who believes/knows Morgan was murdered, those lies are just words and bare absolutely no influence on the truth. It is the truth that triumphs those fabrications, those useless lies, as it is the truth that is strong and cannot remain hidden for long.
 
With 2016 approaching us in less than a month, I can only have high hopes for what is in store for the future. What does the future hold? I am quite auspicious and confident that the outcome will be good and I will forever anticipate the big reveal, the truth. A lot of you ask why I continue to support Toni Ingram. Mark Twain once said "if you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything." What Toni Ingram has shared with everyone are her words as a mother and not just any mother, the mother of Morgan Ingram who knew her daughter more than anyone in the world. Do I think Toni Ingram is telling the truth? Absolutely. Yes, I do.
 
Morgan Ingram loved life and embraced it for what it is. As there was always a project, a purpose - when I read some of Morgan's work, her creative writing that was shared with me from Toni, I cannot help, but ponder the idea of why she never left a suicide note. It is because she didn't take her own life. Buddha once said that there are three things in this life that cannot be hidden - the sun, the moon and the truth. And guess what? I agree.
 
Morgan's life, love, and light is not lost. In fact, it is her life, her love, and her light that lives on. Her spirit will forever remain in our hearts. Morgan is a face and a force of stalking and for change. And I will continue to support Morgan, Toni, Steve and the homicide theory forever. No matter how many lies are spread about me, I will never give up on the quest for justice. A wise individual once said "giving up is as good as losing and losing is as good as death." There are no truer words spoken and I will never give up on Morgan. For more information about the stalking and murder of Morgan Ingram, please visit the official site today. Rest in Peace, Morgan Ingram.

Remembering Morgan

Today, I am lighting a candle
to remember Morgan Ingram and her life.
Time cannot erase, the memory of your face. Love, it's all we want. Where is it, is it lost? I wrote a song recently called "I'm Calling For You" which depicts a story about love and remembrance. Today is a day that we celebrate the memory of a beautiful bright light, the life of Morgan Ingram.

 
I can sit here and type a dissertation that consists of a thousand words, but this will not bring Morgan back. They say a broken heart is equivalent to a million tears, as is the laughter that occurred throughout the years. Is it?

 
Morgan spent many years and many days with her mother Toni and her father Steve. They shared a lot of happiness and joy. Although Toni and Steve cannot properly grieve, as there is no closure for the death of their daughter, they can remember those amazing moments and memory breeding experiences they spent with her and lock those safely in their hearts for the rest of their life.

 
A beautiful life may be gone, but it is never lost. Morgan Ingram is that beautiful life. Although she is not here in the physical world, as an entity, she is still around in spirit. We just can't see her. Well, at least most of us. Her soul will forever remain in our hearts. As we remember her life, we can reflect on what she contributes to this world.

 
Morgan Ingram is now the face and the force of stalking and for change. May her spirit light up on this special day, as we celebrate her memory and her birthday. Morgan may be gone, but her love, her light, and her spirit lives on and lasts forever.

 
Today, I chose to light a candle to acknowledge and commemorate the life and the death of Morgan Ingram. Although justice hasn't happened, I will continue to keep hope alive and pray everyday until it does.

 
Morgan with her parents, Toni and Steve Ingram.

Morgan Ingram

Morgan Ingram was a young woman from Carbondale, Colorado who was murdered on December 2, 2011. She was found by her parents Toni and Steve Ingram, who practically knew their daughter more than anyone else in this world. I have had the greatest opportunity to speak with both of them, including Morgan's mother Toni. Although the case remains an unsolved mystery, as the case is also closed and there are many questions left unanswered.
 
I believe that this was clearly a homicide and knowing what I know now, I believe that the stalker was the man who took Morgan Ingram's life.

My interview with Ryan Ingram:
 
 
As I dove deeper into this mystery, I discovered numerous discrepancies that go beyond words on a screen that logic cannot comprehend. One of them was the level of drug in her blood. Morgan Ingram had 7,909 ng in her blood, which is over 6,000 times the lethal limit. Why was it there? Check out my short podcast:
 
 
Rainer Jundt was Morgan Ingram's soul mate, lover, and best friend. The two were inseparable. Check out my boyfriend Joseph Valo III's interview with Rainer Jundt:
 
 
Morgan Ingram was murdered and it isn't just Toni Ingram or myself, Sarah Afshar who think it. Check out Joe's podcast about why he believes Morgan Ingram was murdered:
 
 
As some of you may be aware, my boyfriend Joe is a psychic and his abilities are getting quite strong. In fact, the more we channel they just get stronger. He was able to make a connection with Morgan in this podcast. Check out his podcast:
 
 
Morgan Ingram was stalked, she was terrorized, and she was murdered. Don't believe what you read about her, let alone Toni or myself. These people are friends of the family and/or angry at Mrs. Ingram for simply telling the truth about her daughter, Morgan. They are also angry with me simply because I separated fact from fiction and have made my opinion publically known. For more information about this case, please check out Morgan's Stalking today.

Psychic Joseph Valo channels Morgan Ingram

My boyfriend Joe and I were talking. Just recently, I have been going to the news and picking new crimes and asking him what happened. I am shocked at how incredible my boyfriend's psychic abilities are. So I took it upon myself to ask him if he could channel what happened to Morgan Ingram, a woman from Colorado who was stalked and murdered in December of 2011. 

What Joe has revealed not only makes my blood boil, it makes me physically sick. After hearing this, I don't know if I can sleep tonight. That is how much anxiety I have over this. If you are in a good mood or sensitive to graphic content, I do not recommend that you listen. After listening, there is no way that I could ever trust Keenan Vanginkel or those supporting the suicide theory, including those defending and enabling him. 

To listen to Joe's psychic channel regarding the stalking and death of Morgan Ingram, simply listen it below.

After listening to Joe's channel regarding Morgan Ingram, it makes me wonder how many other women suffered also as it makes me wonder what would have happened to Morgan if she lived to tell her story today. 

Gone, but never forgotten. Morgan Ingram, we will never give up on you.

Morgan Ingram: Exclusive Interview with Ryan Ingram

Morgan and Ryan.
Morgan Ingram was found dead on December 2, 2011. As her death remains a mystery, one thing is certain, she was murdered. Recently, I had the chance to speak with her older brother Ryan Ingram about his sister's life and her death. Here is what he had to tell me...


(Q) Hello Ryan. How are you?


Hello Sarah. I am doing ok.


(Q) I wanted to ask you some questions today. Can you tell me a little more about Morgan and the type of person she was?


Well, I can talk on for days about Morgan. She was a beautiful soul. She was very brilliant in many ways. She loved life. She was the best sister anyone could ask for. Morgan was very loving and caring. She was very articulate and intelligent. The list goes on.


(Q) That is so amazing. I think Morgan was such a beautiful soul. Everything about her was so amazing. Plus, she was raised by your mother who is another beautiful soul. I truly believe everyone in your family is so kind and compassionate.


Thank you.


(Q) I wanted to ask you Ryan, did Morgan ever tell you about the stalking? Did she seem distant when you talked to her? Can you tell me a little more?


We talked. Yes, she did tell me about the stalking. I was very angry about it when she told me. I wanted to help my sister, I wanted to protect my sister. She was very classy in a sense where she didn't want me to worry, when I said that I wanted to put an end to it. She was the type of young woman who did not like drama or confrontation. "No Ryan, no Ryan..." she said to me when I offered to handle it. I know my mom and dad were going to the sheriffs and filing reports about it. They were taking proper measures to catch the guy and make him stop, but I was still worried.

Morgan's request was "I love you Ryan and I will call you if I need you" and I respected her wishes like I always did. She did tell me about the stalking and I chose to go along with her feelings on the matter at that time. Knowing what I know now, I should have went against her wishes. I could kick myself now because now my sister is dead.

and loved ones, including Ryan Ingram.



(Q) Wow, she actually told you about stalker?


Yes, she talked to me about the stalker and so did my parents. My life did not just change after the loss of Morgan. It changed months before due to the stalking. It changed by worrying about her and my parents. The months leading up to her death were not good ones for our family. The stalker was all we thought about, and all we talked about. How do we keep her safe? What kind of person was this, what does he want, how do we catch him?

Before her stalking started in August of 2011 we talked about how much fun Morgan was having flying to Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Hawaii. We all celebrated her wrapping up her first two years of college and earning her AA degree, we talked about how wonderful the pictures were that she took of everyone in the family - we asked her to do a family portrait up on the mountain. We were a family that loved to do things together, spend time together and make wonderful memories, but the stalker took that all away from us.


(Q) Did she describe the stalker?


Yes, but referred to him as a neighbor’s boyfriend. When I did my research, I found out exactly who he was.


(Q) When is the last time you spoke with your sister? Tell me about the last time you saw Morgan...


I saw her the day before she died. She came by the shop with her friend at the time to help my dad pack up some stuff. She looked really pale. I was concerned so, me being the big brother, I asked her a bunch of questions. She was very open. She was very positive. She was in good spirits. We had a good talk. She was loving life, and having fun, just really tired. She wasn't going to let her stalker ruin her life. We said I love you and we hugged, just like we always did, like any other day, and she left. At that time I didn’t know it would be the very last time I would ever see my youngest sister alive.


(Q) Taking you back to that sad day, the day of December 2nd 2011. I know this is so hard. When you heard the news that your sister was dead, what went through your mind?


I went and destroyed my closet - I literally tore it apart. It was sometime after 6:00 am in the morning here. When I got the call, I knew it was an emergency. My mom doesn't usually call me that early in the morning, so I knew something was wrong. After I ripped apart my closet, that is when everything kind of set in. My girlfriend approached me and asked "Ryan, what is going on?" I told her that I had to go. I decided to head to their house.

When I got to the house, it was pretty much a crime scene. There was crime scene tape all around and I just went through it. I looked at the sheriffs, who looked at me shocked because I had just barged in. I remember having a little confrontational moment with them. I remember telling them "you didn't do your f^#%*@^ job!" and proceeded "And this is what the $%^& happened?!"

Morgan was laying on the ground with a towel over face. She was laying there in a frozen position. At this point, I was escorted out of the house. After that morning, I noticed that one of the cops parked his car outside of my house for a few days. I found that odd that he was more worried about me than going after the man responsible for my sister's death, even more worried about me than they ever were about protecting her how does that seem right?


(Q) I want to ask, do you believe that your sister was murdered? What are your reasons for believing she was murdered?


I never sat down and came to the conclusion as to any details about what happened, but yes, I do believe my sister was murdered.


(Q) I definitely believe she was murdered, as well. I don't believe suicide was ever the case. For someone who embraces the arts and loves writing, I find Morgan to be the type to leave a note. The drug levels are only the beginning.


Most definitely, she was not suicidal, she had a stalker, I have seen and heard the evidence, and for people to even mention suicide is not only ridiculous at this point, but an impossible conclusion given the evidence. So yes, that is exactly how I feel.

(Q) Do you think this woman, along with the alleged stalker/suspect are angry because your parents have exposed the truth and are not backing down? Do you believe their harassment is based on fear more so than anything else?

Absolutely. Everytime my parents expose something, these people come lashing back with the same exact thing every single time. "Everyone's crazy!"

(Q) Tell me a little more about the phone calls you received from the suspect's family and friends...What did they say to your girlfriend, as well as, yourself?


They approached my girlfriend and offered her incentives to give them any information, any "dirt" on me or my mom or anyone defending my parents. They offered money, as well. They basically approached a weak person and tried to manipulate that person into doing something to discredit my mom, my dad, and everyone supporting them.

The woman behind a lot of this talks a lot of trash online, but also embellishes and exaggerates her claims to fit her story. She never knew Morgan, doesn’t know our family, doesn’t even live in the same state. She was calling multiple times and not leaving any messages, so that is when I took it upon myself to call her back.

(Q) Wow...


At this point, I was so irritated because I couldn't have a conversation with anyone, she would just call and say nothing. She wasn't trying to be civil, so I just called this person and left them a message to let them know that it wasn't ok to do what they were doing. I wanted this person to stop harassing my parents and the mother of my children, as well as, anyone who supports them. I guess that gave her ammo to spread lies online and make herself look like a victim and me the bad guy for defending what is right. I didn't say anything threatening. I was just very clear when I asked her to leave my family alone.


(Q) Now I have a question, as you are aware - some people try to say that your parents, Toni and Steve are overbearing parents who cannot accept that your sister took her own life. What do you want these people to know?

My parents have always been truthful and honest. If overbearing means telling the truth and separating fact from fiction, then I guess you could say they are. Anyone who says this about my parents does not know them. They are hardworking people who knew their daughter, my sister. You will notice that as more evidence surfaces, those people connected to the stalker will try anything they can to discredit them and those that don't know much will learn more about what went wrong. There is so much evidence, there is so much proof that my sister was murdered and my parents will continue to keep going until the truth about what really happened to my sister comes out.


(Q) I have to ask, on December 2nd when you went to the house and you made your way in and so forth, did you notice anything really strange? Anything that was awkward? Anything that was odd that stood out?


Morgan was a little snuggle bug. She wore PJs to bed. Although I wasn't in the house for long, I found it very odd that she was wearing clothes she would go out in. She was in street clothes. That just wasn't my sister, that just wasn't Morgan. She was in a strange position lying on the floor and none of what I was seeing was making any sense to me.


(Q) That is just so sad. I have tears in my eyes just thinking about that day. I just want to know Ryan, I know you have a lot to say so I want you to say everything you would like to say.


I do have a lot to say. My sister's death has changed my life. After she died, I had a hard time dealing with her death. At the time, I had a great job and I was very successful. I couldn't work because of her death. It was very stressful. I could not stop thinking about Morgan. I also could not stop thinking about Morgan's stalker. I ended up moving away to try and get a fresh new start. The day Morgan was murdered everything changed for everyone in our family for the rest of our lives. Colorado was my home for many years, and I don't think I'll ever be able to live there, and do not even feel comfortable visiting.

My youngest son was too young when Morgan died and will never remember his aunt. My daughter, who is nearly 6 and knew Morgan well will forever miss her aunt, she will never have cousins, and she will never know the happy go lucky grandparents that my parents used to be. As much as we have tried not to talk around her, it is impossible. She has nightmares and is scared of the dark, and to asleep alone. She asks about Morgan’s murder almost every day, and every day she wants to know if they caught that guy yet? The loss of Morgan and the manner of her death, has changed all of us, forever… I don't think any of us will ever be who we were before her death.

My mother was very passionate about everything and she knew what happened to my sister, as we all did. Everyone would talk about it and every time I kept thinking about Morgan's stalker. I miss my sister and I love my sister. I support my parents 100%. Morgan told me about him and I respected her wishes not to do what I thought I should do at the time. The reality is, my sister was murdered and justice has not been served. If I could turn back time, I would do things a lot differently.

Morgan wrote this to her brother Ryan:


January 06, 2009


To the best brother a girl could ask for, when people tell me that the world is a cruel and horrible place all I can do is smile. I smile because I know them to be wrong. I know that the world is a beautiful place worth fighting for. I know this because of you. When I think of you I feel my heart, not the one that beats, rather the one that feels. Seventeen years here on earth, I have seen bad people and good people, but you Ryan, I know to be the best. For reasons I can 't quite explain, I see you more clearly than other people. I see your struggles and your triumphs, but mostly I see your heart. I am truly blessed to have a person like you in my life, a person who makes hope look so tangible, so real. ~Morgan

Interview with AJ Jung about Morgan Ingram

Recently, Joe and I were approached by a friend of Morgan Ingram's for an exclusive interview where we both discuss Morgan Ingram and our stance on the case, as well as, the harassment, lies and defamation we (Toni Ingram, as well as, myself - Sarah Afshar and my boyfriend Joseph Valo III) have endured by Keenan Vanginkel supporter Mayra Martinez of Eugene, Oregon (or MayraMM) and cyberstalker Michael Odegard of Portland, Oregon because of our support for Toni Ingram, a mother who tragically lost her daughter to murder in Winter of 2011.

We also expose the connection between Tricia Griffith of Websleuths, Mike Boudet of Sword and Scale and their involvement with unregistered sex offender, Terry Cavitalo aka Terry Stipp (Terry Sholes) who is also involved along with Mayra Martinez in the libel against Toni Ingram and myself, Sarah Afshar, for supporting the homicide theory and my boyfriend Joe for standing with Morgan Ingram.

Thank you Andrew Jung for allowing us to use our voices for the right reason and exposing the untruths created by these people who attempt to silence us. Who refuse to see the truth let alone look at the facts. I will continue to support Mrs. Ingram, as I believe Morgan Ingram was stalked and murdered by Keenan Vanginkel, the man stalking her.

You can call us trolls as you can call us crazy, but at least we are not lying. We are telling the truth and will continue to do so.

Morgan Ingram: Exclusive Interview with Toni Ingram

Toni and Steve Ingram with their daughter
Morgan Ingram.

Morgan Ingram was found dead on December 2, 2011. Although the case is closed, there are many who have questions about her case. And the big question still remains, why is the case closed?

When I first interviewed Mrs. Ingram back in December 2012, she exposed various discrepancies in her daughter's investigation that were so baffling, I've had to endure quite a few attacks from the suspect's family and friends just for allowing this woman to exercise her 1st amendment rights. Need-less to say, the reception was tremendous.

Today I speak with Toni Ingram again. Only this time, about the progress of Morgan's case, other inconsistencies she's discovered since we last spoke, and life after Morgan. And here is what she had to say:


(Q) Hello Toni. How are you? How has life been since we last spoke?


Hello Sarah. Time has brought many revelations to us about Morgan’s stalking and death, it has also brought some very disquieting clarity. The facts dribble in and they never cease to have some level of shock attached to every single one. Steve and I have learned, and pieced together so many things that I did not know during our last interview, so in answer to your question… yes, I am doing as well as can be expected, some days are gut-wrenching, and ghastly, mostly when new details in Morgan’s case are brought to my attention, or properly interpreted, but then at the end of each day I know Morgan is still around with her gentle touch encouraging me on.

Every single day that I am graced with living on this earth, and being allowed to give a voice to Morgan, as well as other victims that are unable to speak for themselves, is a blessing. It is still extremely painful to wake up every morning knowing that I will no longer hear Morgan’s voice, or listen to her play her keyboard and sing, or ask me to watch her working on her latest ballet movement. Whenever Steve and I take road trips now, I inevitably look behind me towards the back seat expecting to see Morgan napping, or listening to music on her headphones - we all had so much fun travel-ing together, bringing her friends along, with so much laughter, and great memories being created.

I always feel her presence, and miss her so very much, and know I will up until the day I die. She was not only my youngest daughter, she was my best friend, and teacher. Morgan was very spiritually enlightened, and we talked every day - I miss her, I miss it all, so very much.


(Q) I have to ask...in Morgan's toxicology reports, it says that she had 7,909 ng of Amitriptyline in her blood. According to several pathologists and toxicologists, 900-1,000 ng of Amitriptyline is lethal. If 900 ng is able to kill a 115 pound girl, how can one explain 7,909 ng of Amitriptyline in her blood?


This has been such a big question in her death, especially in the first year, before more facts came out, but to recount, on December 19th, exactly 21 days after finding Morgan dead in her bed, I received, in the most odd manner I must add, the 1st Postmortem Report with her toxicology results attached. I remember reading so many mistakes, and things that were just not true, the first being the situation surrounding how we (her parents) found her that morning, it was completely wrong!

How can that possibly be I thought, and I shot off an email to the lead detective about this, which of course he said was going to be corrected, and which of course, never was. Then there was the contracted pathologist reporting on Morgan’s rumored one time drug use, but right there in her tox screen, there was no alcohol, no illegal drugs, in fact only prescription drugs she was not taking, it was an amazing document of misrepresenting everything except the fact that she was a young, healthy woman, and she was in fact dead. So many have written to me to express how they feel Morgan was completely victimized in that report.

I have to say the same contracted pathologist was involved in another recent high profile case of criminally negligent homicide, and the Colorado Supreme Court ruled that his report was to be excluded from the trial as it would only serve to confuse the jurors. What kind of a pathologist is that I ask? His report on the death can’t be introduced as it will only serve to confuse the jury? In Morgan’s 1st report he stated she died from natural causes, this was attributed to an illness that she was NEVER diagnosed with at any time in her life.

Morgan’s long time, very brilliant, doctor at UCLA was all over this obvious error. It is absolutely maddening to me that this pathologist continues on, allowed to perform autopsies. And then of course was this number alongside the Amitriptyline found in her blood on the tox report, I certainly did not know what it meant except that something that should not have been there was. For many months or so I was told it was of no consequence, to be ignored in other words. Yet other forensic experts were telling me the exact opposite, that it was a massive dose, could not possibly be ignored, in fact it was off the charts. You name the adjective, I have heard it.

I knew she was not taking that drug, just as I knew she had once taken a very low dose, like one tenth of the prescription people are given for depression, in Morgan’s case it was for pain, in the past she was dealing with complications from long term chronic exposure to Carbon Monoxide. I also knew very well, and could document how Morgan made a choice to stop taking any prescription medications well over a year before her mysterious death. I have also been told that the ratios of certain chemicals clearly point to this massive amount of amitriptyline as being a one time event. Morgan was a fighter, she wanted to have a long, strong, and healthy life through diet, exercise and holistic, natural methods, she wanted children someday, and she had begun most admirably along this path yet was not allowed to fully succeeded in her goal, that was stripped from her when her life was cut short.

She had not even had a prescription for the drug Amitriptyline in well over a year. Did not take it, pharmacy records, calls to every pharmacy, and doctors for Morgan all bear out the same conclusion, and I would be the first to speak up if they did not, I want the truth, always have and always will. Morgan would even turn down an offer of an aspirin at times when she had a bad headache. I questioned the lead detective in charge of Morgan’s felony stalking case, as well as the forensic pathologist that did her autopsy as the facts piled up that something was seriously amiss here. I was told by the contracted pathologist that the parents are the last to know.

Then came the threats, drop all these questions, or else. I was angry because I knew she wasn’t taking it, and wanted to know how it could have been in her blood, what kind of investigation is this? What people not closely involved easily miss is how vociferously this contracted pathologist defended his initial opinions, until he changed them eight months later. Morgan’s blood level of Amitriptyline was not only significant - it was the absolute most likely cause of her death, plain and simple, medical fact.


(Q) Wow, and there were only a few Amitriptyline pills missing from the expired prescription bottle? I have to ask, this Amitriptyline prescription from 2009, was this found in Morgan's bathroom?


An old expired pill bottle from 2009 was found in her bathroom, positioned on the top of a pile of random things, in a place where Morgan would never pile anything. It has been described by a retired Federal Special Agent like looking as if someone was creating a "shrine" or staging it. I know without a doubt that Morgan would NEVER have left any bottles of old medication out where her puppy could get into them. Her bathroom door was always kept open to her room, her puppy was always in that bathroom, she fed her puppy in there.

Morgan kept all old bottles of medications and other things inside a plastic bin under sink in her bathroom cabinet. We never knew, or believed for one instant at the time that her stalker could have been in our house while we were all away, we very mistakenly thought we were safe, that Morgan was somehow safe, but now we have been educated on the subject and completely believe the stalker had been in the house, many times,and knew just where Morgan’s things were.

Now I always caution victims of stalking that your stalker seeks to invade your life and will invade as deeply as he or she can, that nothing is off limits. I believe Morgan’s stalker was a predatory stalker and it is absolutely chilling to read the traits for this type of stalker, because it mirrors what happened to Morgan, right down to her death!


(Q) The amount of Amitriptyline in her gastric fluids was quite high, however there are other drugs that were also in her system that make everything questionable. Drugs that you didn't have in the house, let alone drugs that Morgan would never have access to. And the pathologist still said this was suicide?


Actually one part of that is a misconception, the numbers in the millions seem high, but in all likelihood, they are not high at all. There was one number I needed to make absolute sense of her gastric contents, but of course that number could not be shared with me, what on earth are they so afraid of, this is an investigation, isn’t it? After multiple phone calls, and the threats that the contracted pathologist could revisit the Amitriptyline level if I did not give up trying to have her manner of death corrected, remember this would be the same Amitriptyline level that he was saying was inconsequential at that time, and then the implication was clearly that he could find entirely something else.

I had reported the threats to not only the Coroner, but to the Sheriff as well. They said nothing! I had been told repeatedly by the contracted pathologist that since he didn’t see any pills or pill fragments in her stomach contents the first time that he could not find the things he later threatened to do. It is all so amazingly wrong. Around this same time, the local FBI tried to set up a meeting for us to be able to voice our concerns. They were quite confident they would be able to arrange a meeting right away, but of course they were shut down completely by the county as well. I truly wish for other grieving families to never have to go through what we have been through, there is just no logical reason, and the pain is unending. So late summer that first summer I got a call, the deputy coroner has a request from the local newspaper under the freedom of information act to release a new manner of death for Morgan, and he wants to fax us the document first.

Shock and more lies, the freedom of information act is federal, it only applies to federal documents, not state, and far more importantly, just how did the local newspaper know there even was a new manner of death to request? We as her parents did not even know - we had not yet been contacted! Morgan’s doctors wanted to see more tests run that could point to answers, but we then found out that tests had been conducted in secrecy! Why? And of course it is all another blow to Morgan, the contracted forensic pathologist finally made good on his threats and changed Morgan’s manner of death from natural causes to suicide after 8 months. This same forensic pathologist stated his reason for the change to be the result of one test run on her gastric fluid. He reported this, as well as the estimated number of pills she had taken. This number was exactly the number missing from an old bottle that was not even in her room, it was a pill bottle Steve had with other expired medications that were to be disposed of that he had given to the sheriffs, never mind that I have been assured that nobody can know the number of pills.

There has never been another doctor who believes this number of pills he is referring to represents a lethal dose! And it gets even worse, the actual reasoning is not contained anywhere in the actual report, but it is instead in a letter referring to a phone conversation between the contracted pathologist and the coroner. The pathologist would not even put it in writing and sign it! I was so absolutely distraught at what they were doing to Morgan, it was all wrong, and of all the people to be labeled as she now was seemed beyond belief! This was also at a time when tormentors who cause their victims to commit suicide were being held accountable and successfully prosecuted all across the country. Nobody in the county would even respond to that question when I asked it. That was a rough, rough time, Steve and I could have easily chosen to turtle, if it wasn’t for the blog coming into its own, we might have. It would be a long time before enough evidence would surface to help quell the absolute disgust and mistrust I felt at that time.

And as for all the other drugs found on the tox report on the second PER, theories abound for the actual presence of these other drugs in Morgan’s gastric contents. The contracted pathologist names only two drugs, but there are in fact five, with no official mention or explanation for the others. Sarah, we found out much later that there is a big problem with Morgan’s gastric contents, some of the drugs that should have been absorbed were not absorbed at all, in fact none of the other drugs in her stomach were detected in her blood, except for Amitriptyline, leading to the big problem, how can one thing be absorbed, but not another right alongside it, that with extreme medical certainty should have been? Now how does that happen, really? In the real world of fact-based science results can’t be ignored because they are inconvenient, but not in what is a capital crime.

For the contracted pathologist however, it was not a problem at all to base Morgan’s suicide on her gastric contents containing Amitriptyline, yet he will not be able to explain the single impossibility that there were six drugs found in her gastric contents, and only amitriptyline was only found in her blood. And like everything else it just gets worse, as you bring up any of these other drugs that were never, ever used by Morgan, and they were never, ever in our home. In fact one of the drugs is not even available for humans, and has not been for over ten years. Just that fact alone should have raised an eyebrow, don’t you think? All the drugs are all part of the lab’s standard sexual assault panel, and a rape kit was never administered on Morgan, I have a vile revulsion to have to say this, but it should have been done, no excuse, it should have absolutely been done as part of any investigation.

Can I say the stalker most likely broke into our house, not once but numerous times, knew Morgan had an old bottle of Amitriptyline pills in a plastic bin in her bathroom, just didn’t ever read the entire label to know they were really quite old, but then the investigators apparently never got around to reading the label either. The entire gastric content revelation was so horrifying, because as we found out, Morgan was either dead, or very near dead when all these drugs were introduced into her stomach, and just how does this happen? All of the explanations for how this happens, that I have heard so far are not something you would wish on anyone. That my daughter was forced to go through this just compounds our families pain all the more.


(Q) I am sorry, it must be very tough for you, there was mention that theAmitriptyline was used to treat acute Porphyria. Is that true?


It is absolutely not true. On a phone call with the contracted pathologist I was trying to explain that Morgan did not take Amitriptyline, that she worked very hard to stop taking all prescription medications in the past. That she had succeeded and that there was a doctor who helped her with this. Do you think the contracted pathologist, or any other investigator ever talked with this doctor? Of course not. When I told him and the detective she was not taking Amitriptyline the contracted pathologist’s answer was that parents are always the last to know, it was in her blood, so she took it. Then very surprising, and to show his complete ignorance on the subject, he added that she took it for her porphyria, which is so ridiculous, it is hard to believe that conversation took place, but it did.

Looking back now he was trying to state two conflicting arguments at the same time, (1) the parents are the last to know, and (2) she took it medically for her porphyria because she had it in her blood, this would be the porphyria her doctors were telling him she never had. I was assured unequivocally that if Morgan was never diagnosed with porphyria in her lifetime it could not be a cause of death, absent some conclusive test to indicate she did. Such a test did not exist, but what does exist is pages of emails from one of Morgan’s doctors explaining the many reasons that Morgan did not have porphyria, to which the contracted pathologist replied that he did not understand why the parents were flip flopping about porphyria. It pains me more than I can ever express to run through the completely illogical twist on facts that we were, and still are mired in.


(Q) Tell me a little about the autopsy photos that you discovered since we last spoke...


That was easily the second worse day of my life - the first unthinkable horror was the day we found Morgan dead, and then came the second - looking at pictures of Morgan the morning we found her body, now over a year and a half later, and the condition she was in, and the condition of her room. Her nails that showed damage at the viewing, days after her death, and the lead detective assured Steve and I that he had looked at the pictures taken the morning of her death, and her nails were in perfect condition before her body was taken away.

The first enhancement of one of those photos tells an entirely different story. Just that one glimpse is burnt into my memory, it is horrifying - that indicates defensive wounds! These are photos that were actually taken by the Deputy Coroner, they are not autopsy photos. The autopsy photos and notes have been requested many times, not even to touch our hands, but to be sent on to other professionals for a complete second opinion, but they have never sent them, and never even answered our requests. I have come to fear they are all destroyed now, as we have recently discovered other crucial evidence that has been destroyed.

But the day those photos came, and for weeks after, Steve and I did not know what to think, we were just in shock, you could say we were walking wounded really. When you find your daughter unresponsive in her bed, and then try to revive her with CPR until the EMT’s come, and then you are asked to leave the room so the first responders can do their best, and then you hear them talking, and you know she is dead, in that time frame you really don’t stand back and stare, taking it all in, beginning to notice all the many clues…no, the one thing I did see and did express that morning was that she was not sleeping in a normal position at all when I found her.

She was on the wrong side of the bed, never slept there, facing the opposite direction that she always faced, she would not have been able to reach her emergency call button, which we later found was removed from its mounting and was on the floor, Morgan looked posed, which is exactly what I told many different people that morning, investigators, arriving family, and friends. Unfortunately, I completely believed and trusted what the lead detective in her felony stalking case was telling me that morning. I guess, who wouldn’t, I really wanted to believe that what he was saying was all true. He said there was no evidence of breaking and entering, no sign of a sexual attack, no sign of a struggle, no sign of suicide, and her death had nothing to do with her felony stalking case, no connection.

He said right now her death was a mystery until the autopsy was completed, and the toxicology results were back. Six months later we started asking for all the autopsy information, along with any pictures, notes, etc. that could be sent off for a second opinion. All our requests have never been answered and we never received a response until the pictures came one year and nine months after her death. After we got over the initial shock of the pictures we consulted immediately with a very respected forensic pathologist, and a conference call with Steve and I followed. During that conference call we were introduced to the biggest, absolute it can’t be, waving a red flag moment of Morgan’s death so far. We had tried to convey what we saw that morning to many different experts who have helped us to get at the truth and justice for Morgan along our path, but having actual images for them to now see quickly changed everything.

We heard what was explained to us on that conference call, but I must admit it took days to really sink in, it was surreal actually. In an instant, all the previous findings of the first manner of death being called natural causes, in which the forensic pathologist that did her autopsy was absolutely positive of, and then the change of the manner of death to suicide, that same pathologist was equally positive of, all that became inconsequential with the fact that Morgan had not died in the position Steve and I found her in that morning. From the pictures it was quite positive, and then some. This meant that her body had been moved postmortem, a very basic death scene essential. Morgan did not die in the position that Steve and I found her in. I’ll repeat that so there is no doubt - Morgan’s body was moved after she had died. She was staged in the position that we found her in that morning. A dead body can not move on its own - I actually asked this question to be 100% positive - someone else has to move the body, and pose it. Her body had been posed, she did not die in the position that Steve and I found her in - exactly my first impression that I had told the officers was correct an infinitesimally small consolation.

And it gets even worse from there, as if that is remotely possible, but it does. The clothes she was re-dressed in were not completely buttoned, or zipped, and left no impressions, all certain red flags too, we have been told. To get really clinical about my daughters death is so difficult. All the little details seen in the photographs. I can’t share them all, but suffice to say her pants were not buttoned, or zipped. First, Morgan never wore pants to bed, and then bodies begin to swell sometime after death, tight pants eventually can’t be buttoned and I’ll leave it at that. There were many other clues in those pictures that were revealed to us, some that Steve and I could pick out by ourselves, and others that some very amazing investigators have picked out. But really? No sign of struggle? No sign of an intruder? No sign of a sexual assault? Really? A bubbling, overflowing anger overcame me for weeks, maybe even months after seeing those pictures, and describing what I felt as just being anger would not even begin to explain the feelings I had. How dare they? To block all our efforts, to allow our family to struggle through the pain, while we kept pushing for the truth, and that truth we had to learn painful piece, by searing piece. These facts revealed themselves to us and as they came out we had to take them and run to an expert for their interpretation. Does that remotely sound like an investigation into the mystery of her death? Does that sound like we, as victims as well, were treated with dignity and respect?


(Q) Wow, and there were unidentified marks on Morgan's face?


Yes, there were. Small but very obvious, blood in places, not just her face, but other places as well, and I would rather not discuss all of those at this time. All I can say is that Morgan did not deserve to suffer as she did, and I will never rest until the truth comes out and justice is served, not only to the person that took her life, but to all those who have worked so hard to consciously conceal the truth.


(Q) Looking back, I am still baffled that none of Morgan's friends were interviewed. I must ask again, why weren't they interviewed?


The why, as with so many other whys in Morgan’s death get lost, in part because there are so many questions and a level of importance attached to each. I feel as I have said many times, that the truth never changes. It is important to realize that it is not a matter or reopening an investigation that was closed - there never was an investigation into Morgan’s death - none. An investigation that would begin now, two and a half years later, would be the first one. Some very burning questions could be answered, and there could be a clear direction, I’m very confident of that because my opinions are the opinions of doctors and other professionals that do this every day, they are excellent and completely capable in what they are doing, and working with very little they have been able to expose many facts that say Morgan was the victim of foul play. Of that there can be no doubt.

I am not an expert, and I rely on others who are to tell me what the the lab results and the pictures really say. That is my focus, our focus, Steve and I. And then someday will come interviews of her teachers, fellow college students, close friends, lifelong friends, family members and employer - all who were never interviewed. Most of these people had little idea of the true magnitude of her stalking. Most people don’t understand how invasive and constant stalking is. Morgan told people about her stalker, including his name and specific incidents, but since these people were never interviewed, none of what they would have said is in any of the reports. Quite a gaping hole I would say, not one shred of the fairness, respect, or dignity guaranteed by the Colorado Revised Statutes and the Colorado State Constitution. In fact it has been just the opposite for Morgan.

And her friends as well, the person she spent the afternoon before her death with was actually challenged by the sheriffs to "prove" his claims that Morgan had been driving him around to apply for a job - here he was the one being actively investigated, while never an investigation of the stalker. Does anyone really think that when the sheriffs department pulled up to our house that fateful morning, after four months of stalking that just kept getting worse and worse, after Morgan had identified her stalker many times to Steve and I, to the detectives, to the deputies, to her classmates, to her friends and their parents, and just days before her death the lead detective tells me he believes the stalking is going to escalate and he is going to increase the nightly patrols, then the sheriffs department increase their patrols, and now Morgan is dead and we are told her death has nothing to do with her felony stalking! How can I possibly not believe that they knew something they were not telling us.

Then Morgan is found dead, half dressed and staged in her bed, and within minutes of his arrival this same lead detective can say with certainty that the stalker was not involved, "no connection to her stalking." What is that? When right then the parents are saying they found her in position A and the sheriffs can see that she died in position B. They even write in reports about how they can tell what position she died in, and there is no investigation about that glaring, crime scene 101 discrepancy? Her tox results come back with a massive amount of Amitriptyline and then that is said to be inconsequential, completely ignored as a cause of her death! Morgan took it for her porphyria, the pathologist tells us! The porphyria that her doctors are telling this same contracted pathologist she never had. There are no pills or pill fragments seen in her stomach, this fact is well documented, then eight months later there are pill fragments in the same gastric contents?

Morgan’s friends get that sick, I can’t even think about this look, when any of this is brought up. They are also so very upset the stalker was never even arrested for stalking, given a free pass. Morgan was a very principled and caring young woman. Anyone that knew Morgan came to respect what she stood for, except a very few that will seek to discredit her now because they have to. After her death we came across a bag full of little notes, all from the young children that she babysat for - they were children of military families at various retreats in Colorado, all of the little children wrote these little notes to Morgan saying how much they loved and adored her, it was so heart filling for Steve and I.

I have to add that another weekend of babysitting at another retreat for military families was where Morgan was headed to the day her body was found, that is who Morgan was, it can’t be taken away by the few who work so hard at portraying something about Morgan that is not there, and is not true, it is very sad.


(Q) I am hearing quite a few rumors through the grapevine that the lead detective in this case is running for Coroner. Why do you think he would do this?


He is running for Coroner. Many of Morgan’s supporters have written to me about this, even pointing out that this detective believes death scenes need medico legal investigation that is not happening now. I applaud him for bringing up the fact that investigations now are based on nothing. You see quite a hole that exists in Colorado, it is up to the Coroner to draft or adopt rules for investigating a death scene. In Morgan’s case the Coroner had no such rules, there were no rules. In a capital crime there can be no rules governing the investigation? But on this same point, officials at the state have pointed out that investigations fall on local sheriffs departments, which the lead detective was part of in Morgan’s death, so I am very cautious of the true intention of this claim. To right the wrong for Morgan is a goal, and a bigger goal is to prevent this same never-ending nightmare loop for others, so naturally I hope for the best outcome in this. It is important to note that autopsies are governed by state laws.

And as far as any compassion for the family, while it has been lacking all the way around since Morgan’s death, the Coroner’s office has been far more forthcoming with copies in their possession, while the sheriff has absolutely not been forthcoming or cooperative at all. As a glaring example, all Morgan’s jewelry of value was missing after her death. At first this was a key point for the lead investigator and discussed with me many times, questions such as, "Was it from a boyfriend, or family member, when was the last time I am was sure I had seen it, could I search again to be sure it was really gone." I did everything requested, who wouldn’t?

And the more I searched the more jewelry was determined to be missing, gone. One piece in particular, a bracelet Morgan had borrowed from me, and I had seen in the evening in her room, on her shelf next to her jewelry box before she came home, and then it was gone. Then it gets worse, the prime suspect is involved in a heist of jewelry being peddled at a cash for gold store very shorty after her death, but to show us pictures of the heist to see if we can identify any as Morgan’s missing jewelry is balked at by the lead detective. He really said that to do that would be the worst example of poor police work. I guess that would be in contrast to the textbook investigation by the sheriffs of Morgan’s death scene, but I digress. I point out that if we recognize a piece perhaps we can then produce a picture with Morgan wearing the jewelry - I had already given him a verbal detailed description of most of the pieces. Sort of like the famous moment with the picture of OJ wearing the shoes he said he would never own.

That was balked at as well, and Steve and I had to then produce a picture of Morgan with every piece of jewelry she ever owned or there was nothing the detective could do. So in the end, all of Morgan’s jewelry of value was stolen on the night she met with foul play - a crime in and of itself I would think! First degree burglary, somebody did it, and it was not Morgan. So why was there never a report about the missing jewelry, a complete reluctance, no not just reluctance, complete refusal to ever investigate this? Getting back to the Coroner’s election, in the state of Colorado the Coroner has far more power than people realize. For Morgan’s sake I obviously want to avoid standing between the Coroner and the Sheriff as they try to point fingers at each other, serves no purpose for Morgan, or other situations like hers.


(Q) Have you been trying to get this case reopened?


We have been trying in every way possible. Clarifying again, it is not reopened because there never was an investigation into her death, Morgan needs to have an investigation that begins at step one and proceeds, although now it would seem to be a very unwieldily, all encompassing type of investigation. As Steve tells people it’s as if for some reason it could never be a case from the very beginning. I see it as the wagons being circled around the suspect. Either way it has prevented any investigation of anything relating to her death except to review basic labs, and come to very flawed conclusions. We now know that the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is not legally allowed to open, or take over a case unless invited in by local law enforcement, or the District Attorney - so their hands are tied.

When the Sheriff’s office states they will never open her case, and refuses to allow the CBI to come in and poke around there seems to be not much that can happen at the state level. But that will not stop us - we now know there were not only many State laws broken, but Federal laws as well, and we will definitely pursue them all. It is a very painful step-by-step process that even if successful will not bring Morgan back. Having Morgan back is the one thing I would give anything to have happen, and it is the one thing I can never have happen. Meanwhile we have learned not to place too much on any one event, and to keep moving forward.


(Q) So, if law enforcement refuses to open the case and the District Attorney also refuses to open it, how would you get the case opened otherwise?


The proverbial million dollar question. We do know that when we finally get justice for Morgan we will have a road map for others. Colorado finds itself in an embarrassing, and very self destructive situations far too often. I believe it is about basic issues that were ignored and allowed to fester until the inevitable, almost predictable ending comes. Morgan’s death carries so much of the same, as did her stalking. Ignoring the stalking paved the way for her death, and Steve and I are left with only pieces. We reassess on a regular basis, and try to be dynamic in what we do. There is a single goal and we never lose sight of that. For now the District Attorney is relying on the information from the Sheriffs and the Coroner, the Coroner really shouldn’t be, but is also relying on information from the Sheriffs, so right now it always comes back to the Sheriffs unexplainable, and incomprehensible stance to, "Never open an investigation into Morgan death" in what is a capital crime. That is a very festering problem in my opinion that hopefully will be corrected before it can happen again.

Along with the Sheriff stating that, "My officers were out to the Ingram’s house over fifty times, and never saw a stalker." Just a sound bite, in reality the officers would drive up and sit idling in the street every time, long enough for any stalker to have retreated to cover long before they ever looked for him, making the possibility of an officer ever seeing him astronomical. We have a picture of the stalker watching the deputies drive away, so not to sound flippant at all, but maybe they should have looked over their shoulders once in a while. Justice for Morgan and other cases like hers that seem to slip through the cracks all too often will always be my primary concern. Right now Steve and I are still on our journey, but I am confident there will come a day that we will have that road map for others that are faced with this same situation.


(Q) When people look at this case, they attempt to paint you as an overbearing mother who can't accept that her daughter committed suicide. What would you like these people to know?


I am not overbearing. I am however a very involved mother who encouraged and facilitated my children to be all that they could be. To accurately express the traits of Morgan you would have to really know Morgan and you would really have to know our family. In any investigation there are things that only the killer would know. These are kept close to the vest, and Steve and I are no doubt less than perfect at handling the role we have been thrust into. The role of deciding what pieces of evidence to keep to ourselves, and what to share. I will add that there are bits of information that even the killer does not know exist, they were right in front of him, and they were right out in plain sight that morning. Steve and I looked, but did not see them for what they were, and did not realize until it was properly interpreted for us by those who are absolutely amazing at what they do. Time will be the ultimate judge as to the voracity of the bits and pieces that have been exposed, and until that day they wait.

And back to the overbearing mother question, I have to add that while I know I was not overbearing, I would term what Steve and I were doing was our best to be protective because yes, my youngest daughter was being stalked, and I was very frightened that something bad might happen to her, and horrifically it did. So I am left to wish I had been even more protective. My intuition told me to be even more concerned than I was, but I didn’t listen to my inner voice, I wanted to believe her stalking would just end and I trusted the Sheriffs and what I was being told, in the process I lost my daughter. Morgan loved being with her dad and I - if any of her close friends were asked that question they would have been more than happy to talk about Morgan’s relationship with us. I went with her to concerts, birthday parties, weddings, volunteer work, and yoga, she wanted to take a self defense class with me a month before her murder, but we never did - we should have, it might have helped her. Being with Morgan was a complete joy.

She was kind, loving, and fun to be with. She spent most of her time with school, friends and her animals, but still asked at times if she could go on errands with me in order to have some daughter/mom talks. For the first year after her death I would drive to do those same errands, and cry when I would look at the passenger seat next to me, thundering with its emptiness. Morgan was also a very strong and confident young woman. During her struggle with hyperalgisia, she was afraid to travel by herself, and rightly so, but after she took charge of her own health and became strong and healthy she started to travel on her own, first to California, then Hawaii, among other places. She really enjoyed the independence that her health allowed her to enjoy.

We would all joke with Morgan every time she traveled by herself that it was, "Morgie’s big adventure." Morgie was the nickname that her dad and I called her. So if people want to believe I was an overbearing mother that can’t accept that my daughter committed suicide all I can say is that they are entitled to their opinion, but I do have great confidence that the facts say otherwise. This phenomenon of victim blaming, and victim bashing happens a lot. Morgan was a victim of felony stalking, and died under suspicious circumstances. The suspicious circumstances have only gotten more suspicious with every new discovery we have made. I believe any mother that loved their child would continue to fight for the truth to come out. Yes, it is painful, and yes it is not fair, but it is what it is, and it is now my journey. I refuse to allow anything that distracts me from getting justice for Morgan.


(Q) I really believe the case should be reopened. In fact, I am still confused myself as to why it is closed. So many unanswered questions and yet, you have been unable to garner closure and properly grieve. My prayers are with you and I really hope that you find answers soon.


You are so correct - how can families of murdered or missing children ever have closure if their cases are not investigated? It can’t happen, and instead of being able to properly grieve, parents and many other loved ones are thrown into a daily process of having to ask themselves very painful questions, and somehow push for answers. The instruction book on how to do this has not been written yet and it is, unfortunately for our society, sorely needed. These victims deserve justice and their families deserve answers. There is no way on earth that being told that you have to look through every photo of your dead daughter, 10’s of thousands in our case, and cull out every one with jewelry or else nothing can ever be done about the burglary that happened in her room on the night she died is a fair request by law enforcement.

But back to the question about what we do know now about what actually happened to Morgan - we know so much more than what we knew the morning we found her, even more than six months ago, or one year ago, or even two years ago. It has now been two years, and four months since we lost Morgan, and we are still getting more information, and following up on possibilities. I believe since our local law enforcement does not want Morgan’s case to be opened we have been in a huge uphill battle, just think of how many ways they can shut you down...does that mean that her case will never get opened? No, I do not believe that, I believe we are getting very, very close to getting her case open. We have been contacted by supporters, as well as experts that have told us they have called to speak with the Sheriff’s office, as well as the forensic pathologist’s office with information to assist in opening Morgan’s case, but they have been told the case is closed, and then they are hung up on. What if someone were to call with a tip as to just what really happened, in the current climate they would be hung up on.

The block walls we have encountered, and the lack of response have all contributed to a really bad situation only becoming worse. We are thankful to have the knowledge we completely lacked up till now, but it has quite a ways to go to begin to lift Morgan, and all those who cared so much about her from the mire that has been created. The brutal truth is that stalking goes hand in hand with terrorizing, bullying, control, sexual dominance, breaking and entering, property damage, theft and homicide. Hand in hand, victims of stalking have to always know this. You should be warned to expect one or all from your stalker, we were never fully prepared, and we were always a step behind, Morgan was the one who paid the ultimate price for this. My husband and I as Morgan’s parents have no doubt that our daughter - Morgan Jennifer Ingram would be alive today except for the actions of her stalker, and his co-conspirators.

We believe only truth will allow for closure, and only the truth. So Steve and I started Morgan’s website (www.morgansstalking.com) on June 6, 2011, along with the blog. The website was put together in order to tell Morgan’s story, and raise awareness of the dangers of stalking in order to help others, and to get justice for Morgan. The blog has been even more effective as a tool against stalking, with well over 5 million views and still counting. Morgan’s stalker/murderer is still out there, and if you were to ask me if he will do it again - I can give you a very affirmative answer, YES.

Although many laws have been broken, there are many hearts that have been too. Morgan Ingram is now the voice, the force, and the face of stalking. If anyone has any information about the Morgan Ingram case, please do contact the Ingram's directly by visiting www.morgansstalking.com today.
