Morgan originally told deputies she did not know anything about the incident, but investigators obtained a warrant to search her phone and allegedly found four images of the deceased victim taken after the shooting on August 7th. Deputies then arrested Morgan on September 14th for making a false statement under oath.
While Morgan was incarcerated, audio recordings reportedly captured Morgan discussing the homicide with fellow inmates in the Escambia County Jail. The witnesses also stated that Morgan spoke openly about the murder and was dancing and laughing when talking about it.
“Five witnesses have come forward stating that Morgan has spoken about this incident,” according to her arrest report. “The witnesses provided specific details about the incident that could have only been given by individuals close to the case.”
After a lengthy investigation, the arrest report stated that deputies determined Morgan distracted the victim before he was fatally shot, and that the homicide was planned. Escambia County investigators believe she was “motivated by money and narcotics.”
The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office says an investigation is still ongoing in the case.
Morgan is being held at the Escambia County Jail without bond charged with first degree premeditated murder.
