What Can We Learn From Keenan Vanginkel’s Work Records?

Over the past week or two, Toni Ingram has tried to perpetuate the idea that in the days prior to Morgan Ingram’s death, an arrest of Keenan Vanginkel was imminent.

On July 9, 2013 Toni Ingram wrote:

Keenan would know that the record of his hours working for City Market was going to be handed over the Sheriff’s department the following week.  Not only did the Detective think that, “if anything, the stalking was going to escalate.”  He would ask for, and receive increased patrols, an extra one or two a night.  And they would all be 100% focused up on our roof.  What did they find out?  And why did they not share it with us?  http://morganingram.com/wordpress/?p=4169

On June 14, 2013 Toni wrote:

  • Nov 29, 2011 – before 5:00 PM Detective Glassmire is over at our house and tells me that he is 100% certain that Keenan Vanginkel is the stalker.
  • Nov 29, 2011 – before 5:00 PM Detective Glassmire tells me that he believes the stalking is going to escalate.
  • Nov 29, 2011 – before 5:00 PM Detective Glassmire tells me that he will be picking up Keenan’s work record from City Market that coming Tuesday (same day Morgan is due to give her official statement), and when he overlays that work schedule with my timeline he is confident he will be very close to making an arrest for Felony Stalking. http://morganingram.com/wordpress/?p=4058

The above statement (in bold) got me thinking.

According to Toni and Steve Ingram, police dropped the stalking investigation like a bad habit after Morgan died.  However, detectives did pick up Keenan’s work records, as evidenced by their presence in the supplemental reports.  This tells me that on Tuesday December 6, 2011 police were still looking at Keenan Vanginkel in relation to the stalking of Morgan Ingram. Why didn’t detectives make the follow-up arrest Toni writes about?  According to Toni the only thing police had to do was compare Keenan’s work schedule with her timeline and Keenan would be arrested for felony stalking.  So what happened?  Why was there no arrest?

It doesn’t take a genius to realize the work records/timeline overlay was not the smoking gun for which the Ingrams hoped.

Curious to see what was learned from the side by side comparison,  I decided to create one.

A couple of things stand out:

First is how quickly the Ingrams concluded Morgan was being stalked.  Only seven days passed between the day Morgan returned from California and the purchase of the outdoor motion alarm.  In that seven day period there is one event that stands out. and that’s the hard bang on the bathroom window after Morgan closed it.

Second is the degree in which the work records exculpate Keenan Vanginkel.  They clearly show Keenan could not be responsible for some of the most significant events, including the night the “stalker” was photographed in the driveway.

A few notes on formatting:

These were done in Excel and converted to .pdf (Acrobat Professional).  and .jpg. The conversion from Excel is quirky so readers might notice some appearance issues here and there. For best viewing,  I recommend downloading the pdf files   However, I realize some people are not comfortable doing that, so I’ve provided .jpgs that can be viewed in the browser.

I have tried to be as accurate as possible and have double, triple, and sometimes quadruple checked all sources. It is a work in progress.  Readers please let me know if you notice any errors.

This is the data for August and September 2011.  I will upload October and November/December as soon as there finished.

August 22, 2011 Upon further reflection, I should have made the Aug 22 event reported in the blog teal rather than green.  Toni said she woke to the sound of the lock beeping.  The reliability of something Toni heard while asleep is suspect.

August 30, 2011 In her blog Toni places the date they captured the stalker on wildlife camera as Aug 29, 2011.  This is somewhat misleading. The incident that prompted the call to police occurred on the 29th and the call to dispatch was logged at 23:55 or 11:55 PM.  Dispatch notified officers at 1:05 AM and officers report they arrived at the Ingram home at 1:20 AM.  Unfortunately, things get muddy from here.  The timestamp on the wildlife cam picture shows the first deputy leaving at 00:43 which is 12:43 AM. The next picture shows two more deputies leaving at 00:44 or 12:44 AM.  This begs the question, how could police be leaving at 12:45 AM if they didn’t even arrive until 1:20 AM?  The”stalker” picture is stamped 00:46 or 12:46 AM. The final picture is what Toni says is the stalker trying to break the camera.  That picture is stamped 00:48 or 12:48 AM.  Obviously someone’s time line is not correct.  I think we can all reasonably conclude whose interest would be served by altering the time.  However, it could also be a simple mistake.  In the end it is irrelevant.   Keenan Vanginkel could not be in two places at once.  He couldn’t be on the Ingram’s roof at 12:48 AM trying to knock down the camera and punching in at work exactly 10 minutes later.

Sept 3, 2011 When police were called about the Sept 5 incident Toni reports they went to the Harris home and spoke with Brooke.  This is also detailed in the police report.

Brooke spoke with the deputy but told him Keenan was asleep and therefore not available.  Toni did not believe Brooke and felt she was covering for Keenan.

I’ve worked hours similar to Keenan’s the majority of my adult life.  Based on my own experience, alongside info shared by coworkers, it is my opinion that Keenan was quite likely sleeping, just as Brooke said.

Let’s look at Keenan Vanginkel’s schedule:  On 9-3-2011  Keenan got off work around lunch time.  He probably went home, ate lunch, watched TV or played video games or something similar in an attempt to unwind.  He may have tried to take a nap.

He probably experienced some difficulty if he did try to sleep because doing so would go against his body’s natural circadian rhythm.  Later as the sun went down, his pineal gland would begin to secrete melatonin and already sleep deprived from working nights, he most likely couldn’t keep from falling asleep until he had to go to work.

This is only my opinion, but as I said, it comes from 20 years of personal experience.  When I worked midnights it was always my habit to go to sleep after dinner and then wake and go right into work.  Consequently, the statement that Keenan was asleep doesn’t strike me as unusual.

Labor Day Weekend  I’ve colored these events yellow because no time is given for the reported events.

Calling All Trolls

I have followed the tragedy of Morgan Ingram for nine months.  Over this period of time my view of Morgan’s mother Toni Ingram has evolved.

I always viewed the stalking story dubiously but in the beginning I saw Toni as a grieving mother whose obvious inability to grasp simple logic was interfering with her ability to come to terms with her daughter’s suicide.  A foolish and simplistic conclusion borne of, I am ashamed to say, my own intellectual arrogance.

Over time, my opinion has done a complete 180.  I no longer believe Toni is struggling to come to terms with her grief. I now believe she wears her grief like a badge.  She revels in the sympathy it brings her and she will do anything necessary to ensure it continues.

Toni Ingram is not like most of us.  I believe she operates without the burden of a conscience telling her what is right and what is wrong.

Here is an example:

Yesterday I blogged about Toni going to the police to say Mayra Martinez was calling on the phone and harassing her.  To add credibility to her claim she provided falsified phone records (go here to read the piece in its entirety)

Now, I would imagine, most people, upon learning that the police knew they lied, would NOT turn around and expand upon that lie.

However, as we all know, Toni Ingram is not like most people.  Not only has she continued to perpetuate her original lie, she has now added greater embellishment, calling on her supporters to report any calls they receive from Eugene Oregon (where Mayra lives) to local law enforcement.  She has even gone as far as claiming Mayra’s business contacts have joined in the alleged harassment.  For those who do not know, Mayra owns a crime scene cleanup business.  Someone please tell me, how someone convinces their crime scene cleanup connections to assist them in harassing total strangers ?  Maybe Toni doesn’t realize this, but in the real world people do not call upon their business contacts and ask them to break the law.; it tends to limit referrals.

Of course Toni doesn’t say these things through her own Twitter account.  She uses one of her sock puppet accounts.  Make no mistakes though, Toni Ingram controls all content tweeted through this user.

Let me cut to the chase:

Put up or shut up Toni.  We challenge you to prove even one of the unfounded allegations made against us.  If you believe we have called and harassed your supporters, prove it, post the phone records

However, it’s only fair that I warn you before you doctor any more records and take them to the police, doing so is a felony.

 

Colorado Statutes

Title 18. CRIMINAL CODE

Article 8. Offenses – Governmental Operations

Part 3. BRIBERY AND CORRUPT INFLUENCES

Current through Chapter 430, Second Regular Session 2010

§ 18-8-306. Attempt to influence a public servant

Any person who attempts to influence any public servant by means of deceit or by threat of violence or economic reprisal against any person or property, with the intent thereby to alter or affect the public servant’s decision, vote, opinion, or action concerning any matter which is to be considered or performed by him or the agency or body of which he is a member, commits a class 4 felony.

An Act of Desperation

Once again Toni Ingram has shown her true colors.

This afternoon, my friend and fellow Truth for Morgan crusader Mayra Martinez, received a phone call from the Pitkin County (Colorado) Sheriff’s Office.

The call was from a sheriff’s officer who was calling to tell Mayra that Toni Ingram had come to the police station to complain that Mayra was making harassing phone calls to her. Toni then presented a printout of what she claimed were her phone records showing Mayra had called her a few times over the past two months. The officer assured Mayra there was no official investigation; he was just making a courtesy call and wanted Mayra to promise never to call Toni again.  Mayra said she was sorry but she could not promise that she would never call Toni again because she had not called her in the first place.  The officer asked Mayra if he needed to subpoena her phone records.  Mayra said she thought that would be an excellent idea and suggested he subpoena Toni’s as well.

Mayra told the officer she would never call Toni Ingram because she had nothing to say to her.  She informed the officer that Toni had a history of doctoring evidence and a call to Garfield county would confirm this.

The officer said their department had no intention of taking things further.  He said he researched the Ingrams and wanted nothing to do with a woman Garfield officials called “bat shit crazy.”

Mayra told the officer it was too late to turn back and she wanted charges brought against Toni.  According to Mayra, this goes beyond   filing a false report, she doctored evidence and needs to be held accountable.  The officer told Mayra that Toni did not file a police report so they cannot charge her with filing a false report.  Mayra told the officer she was sorry he was dragged into this situation but she had no intention of letting it go.  Mayra told the officer she still wanted to file harassment charges.

Mayra sent the officer her most recent phone records but requested that the officer subpoena both hers and Toni’s to confirm that Toni doctored evidence.

Toni Ingram, in this foolish and desperate act has decimated any credibility she might have had.  By her own hand she has shown her true character.

She has no moral compunction against falsifying evidence and giving it to police.  She has no concern for repercussions.  The woman is unconscionable.

By showing a willingness to lie and manipulate evidence she has undermined her own cause. Her willingness to falsify evidence against Mayra completely discredits the “tons of evidence” she says she has against Keenan. Case dismissed.

Poetic justice at its finest.

Just What Kind of Bull$*!t Is This?

June 1, 2013

by Shelby

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:

On May 31, 2013 in Just What Kind of Crime Scene Is This Toni Ingram wrote:

„,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:

Supplemental #3
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.
