This blog is long overdue for an update which I will try to write sometime this week.
In the meantime I want to make available these messages Ryan Ingram left for Mayra Martinez on her voice mail. (SEE BELOW)
Poor Ryan, he doesn’t seem like a bad guy. He probably doesn’t realize he’s a victim of his mother’s pathology.
…..and Ryan? Don’t call and harass Mayra for my actions. She doesn’t write this blog. If you want to talk someone drop me an email at email@example.com and I’ll reply with my number.

This is our first New Year without Morgan – we cried a lot today. Detective Rob & Megan were supposed to come over today, but didn’t make it.
According to supplemental report #14 in the felony stalking case file Detectives Glassmire and Alsatt did indeed keep their appointment with the Ingrams. Toni presented the detectives with “evidence” she and Steve collected. After leaving the Ingrams Detectives Glassmire and Alsatt went to the home of “Nina,” to question her, based on info provided by Leesa Weist.
Supplement Report #14
January 3, 2012
Subject of Narrative:
1. Follow up with Ingrams on January 1, 2012.
2. Interview with Leylani B**** R**** (DOB 03/11/1991 (Nina) on January 2, 2012.
On January 1, 2012, Detective Alstatt and I met with Toni and Steve Ingram at their home. They provided me with miscellaneous items that they felt could be important. The items included things that were collected from around the house such as papers, hairs, and other items that would generally included trash. The Ingrams conceded that it might have no relevance to the case but thought that it was important to provide it to me for my determination as to its relevance. I feel that since it was provided it is important to maintain it as evidence since I do not know the items relevance at this point.
Therefore, I placed the items in a single evidence bag and submitted them to evidence.
The Ingrams also had a concern that the suspect(s) may have left fingerprints on a Land Rover parked in the driveway. There is video evidence of what appears to be a person crouched near back of the Land Rover. I examined the Land Rover, did not see the presence of latent prints, and noted no ignificant areas where latent prints would be recovered. The video that I referred to was captured several months ago and since then the weather has provided cold temperatures, rain, and snow.
Detective Alstatt and I then left the residence stopping by the home of Leylani “Nina” B**** R****. We left a business card with Nina’s father and asked that he have her call me. In supplemental 13, I wrote that Ryan Ingram’s girlfriend had told me about how Nina had come over to the house and she acted fidgety when asked about whom the stalker was. Nina apparently said that if it was K**** or B**** they were just playing around.
My purpose for trying to find Nina was so that I could interview her. Nina did call me on January 1, 2012 and we set up an interview for January 2, 2012 at 1230. Detective Alstatt and I met with Nina at that time and interviewed her at the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office interview room. The interview was recorded and lasted about 16 minutes. The following is a summary of the interview and the interview should be viewed for a better understanding.
I spoke with Nina about how she knew Morgan and she explained that she went to school with Morgan on and off during their adolescent years. Nina said that they also lived near each other at several different locations.

Nina said that she had not talked with Morgan in depth over the last few years but she had seen her from time to time, the most recent being a few days before her death. Nina said that the conversation was short and they talked about how they should get together soon.
I spoke with Nina about what she thought about the stalking case and she said that she didn’t have any real plausible explanations. Nina explained that she thought it might have been a boyfriend that was jealous but she learned that Morgan did not have any bad relationships with ex-boyfriends. Nina also said she thought it might be some friends playing a joke but Nina said she figured if it was friends then they would have stopped after the police were called.
I spoke with Nina about her thoughts as they related to B**** H**** or K**** V**** and she said that if it was them they were playing a joke. Nina said she doesn’t know K**** well but she did not think B**** would have done something like that. Nina said that B**** and Morgan were friends at one point but did not think that they ended their relationship in a good way. Nina said that B**** went to rehab at the age of 13.
Overall, Nina provided a consistent statement and I did not feel that she was strongly opinionated about who the stalker could be. Nina seemed very neutral. The interview ended.
The case is still active.
Item 12 – Items from around the house. I collected the item on January 1, 2011, maintained in my vehicle until January 3, 2011 when I submitted it into evidence locker 7 at the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office Annex.
Item 13 – DVD of interview with Nina collected on January 2, 2012. The interview was submitted to evidence on January 3, 2012 at the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office annex.

Toni’s blog post dated January 31, 2013 discusses the scholarship fund that was set up in Morgan’s name. This is a meaningful and positive way to remember Morgan and I encourage anyone who wants to honor her memory to consider making a contribution. Colorado Mountain College scholarship fund is a registered nonprofit foundation. Donors can be confident their contribution will be used for the stated purpose.
Unfortunately, contributors to The Morgan Ingram Foundation cannot be granted that same assurance.
The Ingram’s request for contributions has long been a topic of discussion forum debate. Are they breaking any laws? Are they grifters using the tragedy of their daughter’s death to scam the public?
I checked the Colorado Secretary of State and the IRS for The Morgan Ingram Foundation along with morganingram.com, Morgan’s Stalking and The Morgan Ingram Benefit fund. I also searched Toni Ingram and Steven Ingram.
I was not able to find a nonprofit organization associated with any of those names. The Morgan Ingram Foundation is not incorporated or registered in the state of Colorado and it is unknown to the IRS.
What does all this mean? First let me stress I am not a lawyer. What I am presenting is my understanding of what I have read. I strongly encourage readers to do their own research.
To the best of my understanding, it is not against the law for private individuals to put a donation button on their webpage, Soliciting money is considered protected speech.
However, it is against the law for private individuals, in this case Steve and Toni Ingram, to misrepresent themselves as a legitimate registered charity, solicit funds for that charity and use those funds to line their pockets.
So yep, they’re breaking the law.
And on it goes…….
