This is the mom of the man who was murdered and I would like
any details people are willing to post.I want everyone to know my
son was NOT a homeless man, he has a very loving family who
had not heard from him in several weeks. He had a job in another
state, an address, a home. What these people chose to do is
unimaginable, and We want justice to be served. We love and
miss our son.
Recently, Nathan's dad, Richard Morgan, was
contacted by the moderator of the Los Angeles
Times Blog. Following an lengthy interview, he
wrote an update to the blog that can be read here.

Five years ago, I got the worst phone call of my life! I miss you more and more every day. In the
beginning they all said with time it would get easier. Not true for me! You are remembered
every day through many things, especially through your nephew, my son Ethan. I hope you're
watching over our family, especially our sisters. I still believe we will find justice for you and that
day will come with so much glory and I promise you I will never give up fighting for that for you! I
love and miss you like crazy.

Hard to believe you were stolen from us five years ago. I miss you every day and as the days go
by, I still feel your presence in many ways. All of our memories made, seem to never fade. I
keep them close to my heart and within my soul. Reminiscing from time to time gives me peace
in the times I really need it. Thank you for watching over me as I live my life. I will forever love
and miss you brother. Love always, Jessica
A of people believe there is so much time in their lives to fulfill all their dreams and aspirations.
However, life is actually quite short. It's hard to believe Nathan has been gone 5 years, but he
left me with the wisdom of never giving up and to always use time to try exciting things and never
lead a boring "pretend" life. Miss you so much, but I know that even though its been so many
days since I saw you last, I'm closer till the next time we will meet again. Rest In Peace Big Bro.
Your little sister, Christina
It seems like yesterday that you were riding the 3 wheeler up and down the street doing
wheelies, scaring me. How I miss you and all that the future was supposed to bring. I will hold
on to the knowledge that the Lord has you in His presence, and I long for the day to see you
once again. Each day is a gift. Remember that, and let those you love know it. Always in my
heart, never forgotten. Love, Mom
The word "closure" is not a reality, its a Myth....Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, Love
leaves a memory no one can steal. I cherish my thoughts and memories of you, Nathan. I miss
you so much......Love, Dad
In memory of
Nathan Alan Morgan
