I had quite a “holy shit” moment today. I had the television on, not really watching mind you, just for background noise. Suddenly something made me look up at the TV screen. It was only a commercial for a program called Suspicion, a new “true crime” series on Investigation Discovery. Still, something about it caught my attention and I stopped to take notice. After a moment I realized I recognized the voice doing the commercial. I don’t mean recognized like one would recognize a celebrity voice. I mean recognize like I know that person, the one telling her alleged story and claiming to be the victim.
Here’s a bit about the series:
It’s human nature to question things – especially when your safety may be at risk – but when a grim suspicion turns into a horrid reality, it may be time to take things into your own hands. Investigation Discovery’s (ID) new series SUSPICION reveals the terrifying journeys of real people who suspected imminent danger and became fixated on finding the truth. From stalkers to criminal cover-ups and killers on the loose, the stories in SUSPICION start building suspense from the moment something feels amiss. Emotional first-person interviews detail the endless twists and turns that come with following a dangerous hunch, leaving viewers anxious to learn who the culprit is until the very end. Did I really just see that? Will anyone believe me? Am I imagining things? Can I trust anyone? Nothing is as it seems and everyone is a suspect……
Scrolling down a bit to the description of the September 9 episode:
“Edge of Insanity” Premieres Wednesday, September 9 at 10/9c Toni Ingram resides in a quiet town with her husband Steve and their 19-year-old daughter, Morgan. But the peaceful neighborhood is shaken with fear after a series of local robberies. Soon after that, the Ingram family experiences a suspicious character circling their home, and Morgan becomes the next target. Threatening behavior quickly escalates into stalking, and Morgan battles to keep hold of her sanity as her hooded tormentor closes in. Location: Carbondale, Colorado
And there you have it folks. I’ll try to reserve judgement until I see the program, but on the surface it appears that fact checking isn’t high on Discovery ID’s priority list. Either that or they’re presenting it as dramatic fiction.

There’s a record TFM keeps that’s updated every day or two, coinciding with the Morgan’s Stalking updates. It is an ever expanding list of the errors, contradictions, half-truths, fabrications, misstatements, exaggerations, and absolute lies contained in Toni Ingram’s blog updates.
Today’s update will note the following:

„,what about the items that disappeared from her room on the night she was killed. Each is uniquely different, each with its own story and importance.
There were other items that turned out to be missing as well, but this blog is going to specifically talk about a small card that also went missing the night Morgan was killed.
It was a driver’ license, obviously Morgan’s license, she would misplace it along with her purse every so often, but she was always very quick to find it when that happened. It was one of her habits that she would not drive if she knew she did not have it, so to leave it missing was not an option for her. Her license was always in her wallet, which was always in her purse. She also kept her previous license right behind her current one. The previous one was in her wallet after her death, as always, but the current one was not.
Not so according to the unattended death report:
Case # 11-29169
Detective J. A. LeMoine
December 8, 2011
After searching Morgan’s bedroom I conducted a search of the vehicle that Morgan was driving the night prior (Land Rover LR3). During this search I took multiple photographs of the exterior and interior of the vehicle. I was able to locate Morgan’s Colorado driver’s license……..
This wasn’t Morgan’s expired license since, according to Toni, that was in her wallet.
No need to keep banging this drum. Detective LeMoine’s mention of the license in the car disproves that Morgan’s license was taken as a “trophy” by her “killer.” Toni is either shamelessly lying or she misplaced the license and forgot its presence in the car was noted by Det. LeMoine.
