Dan and I went to Charlottesville yesterday to acknowledge the passing of 8 months since Morgan’s abduction/murder. We are getting so tired of beating this drum – trying to incite vigilance in the Charlottesville community where a psychopathic murder still walks.

This killer enjoys violence. He has worked his way up to the top of the predator food chain, killing humans for sport. The exhilaration and power he seeks through murder will not easily be satisfied by lesser crimes. If not caught, he will re-offend, hurt/kill someonelse’s daughter.

That belief makes me frantic for an arrest. Not a quest for justice, or closure, or even punishment, but so that some other sweet girl be spared his blood lust.

That’s a hell of a motivator. Even if we’re tired, even if people think we should get over it and go away, we persist. It is too late for Morgan, but I can’t give up on the next girl.

    Did Morgan have a good relationship with her father? In all the pictures posted she seems distant in that picture. I know sometimes people pretend that things are okay on the outside when reality is that all familys’ have problems.

    tcaros…. From being a member of this forum for a good long while now I can tell you that Morgan was close to all her family members…her dad, her mom and her brother Alex. They all remain devastated that their daughter and sister was murdered by a ….. not exactly how best to characterize this POS.

    I second that Laura. If you read any of the posts here or have read in the news about them or the agonizing pain this family is going through, you will know that the entire family is very close and that Morgan was very close to both of her parents.

    Morgan’s presence is very much felt here. I still pray the killer will be brought to justice soon. (For your sake and other young women.)

    As far as someone suggesting Morgan wasn’t close to her father, it is obvious she was. Usually the dad is the one taking the pictures. That was an insensitive comment at the least!

    God bless and keep you.
