Circumstances of Disappearance

Morgan was last seen in Marshall, Texas on the morning of August 8, 1997, at Gas Express on Highway 59. His vehicle, a cream-colored Isuzu pickup truck with the Texas license plate 665 5VP, was discovered abandoned in a wooded area of Marion County north of Marshall some time after he was last seen. The truck was locked and Morgan's 30-30 Winchester rifle was missing from the vehicle. There were bullets scattered on the floor. There was no sign of Morgan at the scene.

On August 7, Morgan told his father and a co-worker that he had been threatened by some loggers. His father planned to meet with him the following weekend to discuss the issue. At 4:30 a.m. on August 8, Morgan left his job at a Waffle House restaurant and was last seen at Gas Express in Marshall later that morning.
