RE:   Inventory of missing items, Moran residence

To the best of my knowledge, the following items are missing from my home.

Insurance Photo

  • Cash from Kelly's wallet. She usually carried a couple hundred dollars on her.
  • Kelly's jewelry box. There was a diamond earring and necklace set that cost me a few thousand dollars. The insurance company will have the exact figure. Also, a dozen lesser pieces including necklaces, earrings, a brooch she inherited from her grandmother.
  • Two gold candlesticks from the dining room table. One was a foot high, the other nine inches.
  • Kelly's iPad. She usually kept it on the coffee table in the living room. Blue leather cover. No sign of the charger, either.
  • My Ole Miss sweatshirt that was hanging at the back of the closet. In case you find one, mine was light blue with faded lettering, a tear in the cuff of the right sleeve, and a pepperoni pizza stain across the bottom left in the front.

I'll let you know if I find anything else.

Wow, he has some general descriptions of her missing stuff but can be oh so specific about his old sweatshirt.
P.S. I can't help but think the candle sticks are brass, not gold. If they were, they wouldn't have to work! But, it's Russell's list...

My thoughts exactly, Igillette!. He also says "MINE was light blue.".etc. Do you think that means Kelly had one too? Don't know why it would matter I guess.... just thinking. Oh, I noticed that the Jewelry Kelly is wearing in the photo the newspaper ran is none other than the jewelry listed below. Where and when did they get that photo? Wasn't that story about her death published on day one?? What do you think?

Nishidatravis, my first thought on the sweatshirt was that it must contain some sort of evidence. There doesn't appear to be any blood involved or DNA it would seem. What do you think the possibility is that Russell threw that in so it would not be just Kelly's things that were taken? It seems to me that who ever did this knew what they were looking for. I'll bet the jewelry is a red herring. What the "burglar" really wanted was the Ipad... and whatever was on it.

Any thoughts as to why he would notice a very old sweatshirt missing from the back of the closet. Maybe he wears it on his day off? Just struck me as odd.. but it may be insignificant.??

Umm... Could anyone help me? PLEASE! I've tried twice to ask some questions to the detectives on this case and it won't post?!
I'm going to ask here because I can't very well start investigating properly without this information.
Need: Crime scene photos. Unable to view current ones in evidence. Also need the autopsy report with COD. Asphyxia due to strangulation? Toxicology report, narcotics, alcohol, etc.??
Thanks everyone! Looking forward to solving this case with all my new friends here!
Emily. ت

Try posting in the Forums section under the current case. There is usually a lot going on there. (I'm attempting to contact you here, in case.)
We usually get more detailed info on the evidence as the case goes on; DNA, fingerprints, residue, etc. In the past, if you posted a question in "Ask the Detective" you would get answers. Not answers to thing like"who killed him', but thing like "will we get her cell phone records'. The answers seem paced to the case, but they came.
I think part of the puzzle is roaming all over the site."Community" can help. A lot of the down and dirty hypothesis is in the Forum.
See you there! Hope this helps, understand, I'm not in any way speaking for the site. Just my observations.
P.S. You aren't expected to solve the crime, no one 'wins', it's the getting there!:)

From the MORANS' MISSING PROPERTY INVENTORY, the killer knew what he was coming for and now Russell Morgan now has a motive, Collecting insurance! The killer took her ipad, so why not her cell phone also?? And nothing of Russell Morgan’s was stolen. It’s odd that he mentioned his Ole Miss sweatshirt. The killer took things of value.

Has anyone noticed that the image of Kelly and 3 of her gal pals at what looks to be one of Kelly’s dinner parties? Has anyone noticed that Trish is not standing in that image with them? I see Kelly sitting, and then there’s Karen, Lorraine, and Nicolette. Kind of odd for Trish to not be in the photo with them. I mean Trish herself claims to be best of friends with Kelly. If they were all so close shouldn’t they have all been posing in that photo?

Don't iPads have an anti-theft feature where it can be located, and/or the camera activated to find the thief? And all computers have a MAC address built in to their hardware. If a computer accesses the internet the MAC address would be available to the ISP which could then find out the router and customer location providing access. In theory cellphone towers should be able to track wifi devices, even if they don't specifically access the cell tower to communicate.
