It has been claimed that because Keenan Vanginkel was arrested on charges of Receiving Stolen Property, that he is responsible for the death of Morgan. Those who bring up Keenan’s arrest record as some kind of damning evidence imply that because he was arrested once, he must be a violent criminal.
The jewelry in question belonged to Keenan’s friend’s mother. Keenan’s friend took the jewelry and pawned it without Keenan’s knowledge. Keenan drove his friend to the shop and was present during the transaction, however, he had no knowledge that the jewelry was taken without permission. The friend’s mother tried to stop the incident but was too late, a statement was made, and the case was dismissed. Every piece of jewelry the friend tried to sell was claimed and accounted for by his mother.
