I don't get it.
OK so she was selling him drugs but gave him an empty napkin. This is first degree robbery? And the article didn't say how she killed him.
Also it said that the victim grabbed the truck's side and the driver ran over him, how is the woman accused of murdering him in the second degree.
I agree that there was a crime committed but I don't think this article helps explain how, who, what etc.
If anyone get's this please let me know.

lindy morrison was a crack head and prostitute at the time of the killing. i was the victim's fiance and we have a 3yr old and 20 month old "now". Tyler was in rehab at the time of his death and crack was not his drug of choice, so i don't know why he was meeting her. she said he owed her money so she set out to rob him of the $50. Because the crime ended in a death she was charged with murder 2, that's just how the justice system works. she openly admitted to all of this and that albright had no idea what the ride was for. but they both felt the two bumps of running over his legs and left him there. When the truck took off tyler grabbed the mirror and they said they knew he was there, it is a natural instinct to hold on tighter when a car speeds up for fear of being hurt when thrown off. the sole of his shoe was rubbed off and he had damage to his foot and when they finally swerved and got him off not only did they run his legs over, his skull was cracked in 3 places killing him instantly. he laid in a pool of blood 2 blocks from my house all night until someone found him while going to work. i think they both should get there charges.

Lindy Rae Morrison was the flower girl at my wedding, lovely sweet inocent and funny, her mother was a dear friend of mine, and a former drug addict, she took me and my four year old son in when no one else did ,no one to do drugs or drink, I was shocked to find out this women was a former dancer and drug addict, she owed Perfect Cuts, several homes and was doing well, she relasped into the drug world and lost everything including lindy, who was raised in foster care,institutions where she was abused horribably.
without proper parenting and love she turned to drugs and prostitution to support her habit, she cries to this day over what had happened and wants to die end her own life, I tell her, you were the passenger and did not know he was laying there in a pool of blood, the driver is guilty not lindy, she was guilty of giving him a napkin, the poor young man's life is gone, having lindy give hers up too is'nt going to change things. She was the passenger not the driver please remember that, it is so sick and sad this young man is dead over drugs, leaving children behind I am so very sorry for this. Lindy Rae is trying so very hard to get her life together but I do not think she will unless she leaves Alaska and lives with her mother . Please parents raise your children with love, talk to them, play games. do puzzles, walks, outings, watch a movie they want, give up your drinking, smoking , drugs dedicate your life to your child, get help if you need it, be the parent you wished you had, forgive your parents, cry scream, get it out, break the cycle, please for the sake of all the little lindy Rae's and Tylers
For Jesus said , all ye little children come unto me.

Lindy did have a rough life. I worked with her for many years in the system trying to help her. I am sad to hear her fate so late. I will remember her as the little 9 year old angle I wrote a poem for. If more good people would have loved her in her youth, life would have been different and this situation would have been avoided. I hope the people that are hurt heal and that Lindy finds peace.

I am Lindys little sister. I love my sister. She had a rough life. Hell, we all did. But she didn't mean to do this. I hated reading about this. My mom, as much as I love her, well living with her wouldn't be good. My mom has relasped way too many times. And all of us went to Foster Care. It was awful. I was only 4 and never met my dad until I was 6. We all have had it tough. And I got into drugs but now I am clean and sober. I just wish my sister could do what I've done. But she can't, she has grown up in horrible places and situations. But I love my sissy and my mom. Just because they made some decisions, STUPID ones at that, doesn't make them bad people. They are amazing people who have both had tough lives. So I'd really appreciate if this nagativety about MY family would stop. It's hurtful having to read online all the time about how messed up they are and people telling you they will never change, then I get to read about my sister being a murder?? This is not right! Yeah my family has messed up, but it isn't their fault completely. Most of all their problems were because they were at the wrong place at the wrong time. Don't blame my sister. It wasn't her fault.

I am Lindy's brother I don't think rough is the word for are childhood. More like a train wreck. A total disaster, we never had any love growing up no hugs no TLC at least I don't remember any of it. I feel like sometimes I might of failed as a older brother sometimes. I am sorry for the families that were hurt. Alot of what happen too us kids was not right. We were neglected and ignored we all were treated like 1950s house wife's and are dreams didn't matter. I guess all I have too say if there is way too make these kind of things not happen. Too the Parents it is your responsibilities to love your kids care about your kids listen too your kids. We did not receive that. We were ignored. That is i felt, even we were dealt rotten cards. I still love my mom, either way but the pain in my heart that I feel From the lack of love that we received. I feel that pain everyday I wake up, and it hurt's. I love my sisters so much, and I share they pain, and I wish we had a chance too grow up together.

I am the mom its amazing kids only remember the bad stuff. Lindy always had a very sweet spirit some bad things happen to her growing up which changed her whole personality its a little personal but she was violated after that she was never the same. I tried to get my children involed in many sports and was always there for there things at school. I had an extremly hard time trying to get them to open up to me and even got them counseling. I never was on state assistance and always provided well for them. I took them camping and parks and places all the time. But kids just dont remember those kinds of things. I never had parenting skills and took parenting classes, I have lived on my own since I was 13 and tried the very best I could with out a father around for them. When I relasped i relapsed hard course that is what addiction brings you too. It is more powerful then anything in the world and I hate being an addict. By the grace of God i have been clean and sober for 15 months one day at a time. I am very sorry for this family I just cant imagine how difficult it must be. But I just want to say that addiction brings us to a different person and makes us do things we would never do. God bless
