    Morgan Jade Violi

    November 3, 1988 - July 24, 1996 [​IMG]
    Morgan Violi was just 7 years old when she was abducted while playing in a parking lot near her home in Bowling Green, Kentucky in late July of 1996. Her badly decomposed body was not found until September. Her murder is still unsolved. At first, her father appeared to be the main suspect, however he is not now. More information will be posted as it becomes available.


    Morgan lived in my hometown.. her father is no longer a suspect and her murder is still unsolved.. she was taken in daylight about 1 pm... right outside her apartment complex.. she and a friend were riding their bikes.. the abuctor tried to grab the other girl also but she got away.

    wow, can I just say I was totally surprised to see this, as little missing angels was/is my website? I currently have plans to revamp to the whole thing, but they are slow moving.
    The other information I have on Morgan is that her father was cleared in her murder, he has an alabi. Her family is still seeking justice. (i exchanged a few emails with her sister after she visited my site) They, however, feel like there is little hope in finding her killer.

    That would be my website. I'm *attempting* to revamp it, but it is proving hard with college. Hopefully this summer.

    According to Morgan's sister, who I have spoken to several times, they are no closer to finding Morgan's killer today then they were when she was killed.

    It's so crushing that they haven't been able to find her killer yet. I pray that they do. It's hits home to me, because she should be my age today, her birthday is close to mine. I think that's what draws me into this topic, the fact that I am living a normal life and these innocent children can't.
    Remembering Morgan and praying that her killer is caught

It was later said , it was a maroon van)...its been 10 years now-- and Morgan's killer has never been caught.

    The mention of a white van is apparently due to the fact that the killer switched his (stolen) maroon van for a white one shortly after the abduction. According to the article it's the white van that was later seen at the spot where the body was found.

    Morgan's sister spoke with newschannel 5 tonight on the kidnapping of her sister, Morgan was 7 and Nikki Duff was 10. Kids were playing all around and Nikki remembers the van, with the door open as the driver waves at her.

    I couldn't find any pictures of Madden as young as he would have been at the time Morgan was kidnapped, but what I could find sure does have some resemblance to the suspect sketch in Morgan's case. The eyebrows, eyes, nose and lips are pretty dead on.

    But the hair is way off if Tim always was balding since high school. And that hair in the sketch definitely stands out.

    What kind of vehicle did tim have in his senior year of high school or whatever.

    The vehicles used in Morgan's kidnapping were stolen. Did you read somewhere he was balding in highschool? The picture on the left he's approximately 28/29, it's from a wedding picture with the mother of his two younger children. He's been married to her for 10 years. His three oldest have a different mother. My dad had beautiful thick hair until his late 20's and it fell out rapidly after that. My husband and I were talking about it and we don't remember any of our highschool friends already starting to bald in highschool, but plenty are bald now 18 years later. Also, it could have been a wig.

    I wonder if any locals still have their high school yearbooks? I know there were a couple on Gabbi's thread that said they went to school at the same time as him.

    I just spoke to KSP and they are aware of both cases. Dispatcher said she will make certain a detective looks at the sketch and makes a determination.

    You all are super great. When I read the post about wishing to see a younger looking TM, I thought LE can find that!
