Mja Inc Investigations

As you all know Monday is our day where we send e-mails to the respective people in Law-Enforcement-Attorney General Offices--Justice Department--FBI & Media outlets concerning several Cases..

It seems that the politics of solving certain Cases have gotten in the way & getting Justice for the Victim & the Victims Family is just a Memory..

Granted you are going to have a few Cases in your 96 Case Files that Politics & Money for what ever reason is the top factor beyond anything else..

But when you have 30 + Cases out of 96 where some Law-Enforcement Agencies could care less if the Case gets solved or not--there is a BIG problem..

So that's why every Monday we have to remind these People that there is enough evidence to move forword on the Case..

When I talk about Evidence I mean Evidence that points directly to the only person who committed the Crime...

Case on Point :

In June 2006 Mja & a Kokomo Tribune Reporter broke the Shannon Sherrill Case wide open that led to 1980's Child Serial Killer David E Penton as being the one who Abducted 6 Year Old Shannon Sherrill from Thorntown Indiana on 10-5-1986..

Direct Evidence that leads to Penton :

Mja found in the Case Files :

Buried in the Case File & forgotten were :

Two witness statements taken on the day Shannon was abducted :

These witnesses gave details about a Van with out of state plates that kept driving in and out of the mobile home park..

They got a good look at the driver & a composite Sketch was done...

Well Law-Enforcement was stuck on a local & a Red Truck

The Van & composit sketch was never released to the Public..

All BOLO's concerned only the Red-Truck..

In 2006 it was learned that Penton did own such a Van in 1986 registered in Texas..

It was later learned that Penton had used this Van on several abductions from 1983 to 1988 & on a lot of those cases they had the details of the Van..

The composite Sketch was a great likeness to Penton in 1986..

The most direct Evidence against Penton :

Buried in the Sherrill Case File A Report :

When the news broke on 10-5-1986 about Shannon being Missing there was a mistake made..

By the time Law-Enforcement caught the mistake made 8 days had pasted..

So the Investigators decided not to correct the mistake & if they hold that Info back if by chance somebody corrected that mistake then they know they have the Guilty Party..

After interviewing Pentons Cell mate of 5 years :

In just general conversation with the Ex-Cell-mate of Penton :

We learned that Penton in 2000 bragged to his cell-mate about the mistake the news made when Shannon went missing..

So playing dumb we asked the Cell-mate did Penton ever say what mistake was made ?

The Cell-mate gave us the details of the mistake...

That kind of Info could have only come from one Person & that's the abductor..

In June 2006 we handed over everything we had learned about Penton to Lt.Jeff Heck..

Everything I am telling you was backed up by the Indiana State Police Detective Lt. Jeff Heck during his Investigation..

In February 2007 Lt. Heck turned over his findings the Boone County Indiana Prosecutor...

Let me be clear about this : Lt. Heck wouldn't have gave the Case File to the Prosecutor unless it was a done deal -- that all evidence leads to David E Penton..

So for 11 years everyone one including retired Lt.Heck is wondering why the Boone County Prosecutor hasn't filed charges against Penton..

Case on Point :

The Death of Marcus Merritt Sr. in 2013..

In 2013 there was no Death Investigation or Autopsy done concerning his Death..

During our Investigation : We helped get Mr.Merritt's body exhumed in June 2016..

From the Police files :

During their Death Investigation in 2016 & with other Info they had from 2013 all Evidence leads back to the E-Stranged Wife & her Parents giving false Info to Law-Enforcement..

Mja has a Police Report that during this Investigation in 2016 the Chief of Police of Leonville Louisiana made a statement that in 2013 he washed the death gun down before it was tested..

After all the Chief was called to the scene by the E-Stranged Wife & her Parents..

The Chief also waved off the Parish District Sheriff who arrived at the scene--the Chief telling him that he would handle the Case because he knew the Family..

Tox report showed that at the time of Mr. Merritts death he was incapacitated--meaning someone else was involved in his Death..

Experts : Mja passed along the Autopsy video & reports of the Autopsy to 5 other Coroners who all found that Mr.Merritt was a Victim of Homicide...

Expert : We had a mechanical engineer look at the Death Room photo's with Mr.Merritt still in the room...

Her report read that the statements given by the e-stranged Wife's parents was a lie..

Mr.Merritt couldn't have been found in the position they claim they found him in..For the simple fact it defies the laws of gravity--meaning Mr.Merritts Body had been staged in the Death Room..

The drug cocktail found in Mr.Merritts system could only come from a pharmacy or a Hospital..

Mr. Merritt had no prescriptions in his name but his e-stranged wife & her Mother worked at the Hospital..

During the 2016 Investigation we learned that the e-stranged wife was nothing but an habitual liar..

For years she claimed to have set an ex-boyfriend on fire...

In 2016 that man was interviewed & it was proven that he got his burns from a grease fire at his place of employment..

The e-stranged wife was given 2 polygraph tests & both results were inconclusive..

If you read the definition of inconclusive : Not leading to a firm conclusion; not ending doubt or dispute...Proving nothing · resolving nothing · leaving matters open..

But yet Law-Enforcement considers this Case closed..

Here we are for 2 years now sending e-mails to have the e-stranged wife charged..

Another avenue is to have a Death Inquest or Grand-Jury decide the fate of this Case..

So Mja moves on until next Monday rolls around & another set of e-mails will be sent out until someone listens..

This Case became our 96th Case on 3-26-18..

MISSING : Ashley Morris Mullis

The 27 year old white female & a mother of 3 children Vanished Without A Trace on 9-19-13 from Royerton Indiana located in Delaware County Indiana..

Mullis was last seen in Royerton Indiana on 9-19-13..

The 27 year old was separated from her husband who is the Father of 2 of the children..

Ashley Morris Mullis was last seen by her boyfriend's family...

The York Family & Ashleys boyfriends name was Daniel York Sr.

Due to a miscommunication between the York family & the Morris family Ashley wasn't reported missing for weeks after she disappeared...

The Truth of the matter is The York Family was misleading the Morris Family & was trying to put them off in taking any action at that time..

Ashley's loved ones don't believe she would have walked out of her life & abandoned her three small children which included a two-week-old baby..

The youngest Child was a product of an affair between Ashley & married Daniel York Sr. who's wife knew about Ashley & the Child...

After Ashleys Disappearance Mr. & Mrs. York took the infant Child & moved to Sarasota Florida..

On 9-15-15 Daniel York Sr.the Father of the Child died in the Sarasota Memorial Hospital..

In 2016 Mr.Yorks Wife adopted the Child & she is no Blood Relation to the Child..

The Child's Blood Relation was never notified about the adoption so there was no one there to contest the adoption..

The Parents of Missing Ashley & the Blood Relation Grandparents to the Child would have contested the adoption..

In the eyes of Mr.& Mrs.Don Morris the adoption was done illegally & the adoption should be unsealed & overturned...

The Morris's wants their day in court to contest the adoption..

Mr.York was the prime Suspect in Ashley's disappearance & he was also a Suspect in the death of a female in a Motel Room..

Any one who Info on this case please contact The Deleware County Indiana Sherrif's Office..

Photo's concerning this Case can be found & our Photo Gallary..

Click on : Mja Inc Investigations Case Photo's -- 2

Go to : Page--2

Starting Photo :  61


Ending Photo :  72


Some time after 7:00 pm, a Woodsville, New Hampshire, resident heard a loud thump outside of her house...

Through her window she could see a car up against the snowbank along Route 112..

The resident telephoned the Grafton County Sheriff's Department at 7:27 pm to report the accident...

At about the same time another neighbor saw the car as well as someone walking around the vehicle...

A school bus driver returning home, noticed the young woman was not bleeding but cold and shivering...

He offered to telephone for help. She asked him not to call the police (one police report says "pleaded") and assured him she'd already called AAA. (AAA has no record of any such call.)

Knowing there was no cell phone reception in the area, the bus driver continued home and phoned the police...

His call was received by the Sheriff's Department at 7:43 pm...

He was unable to see Maura's car while he made the phone call but did notice several cars pass on the road before the police arrived...

At 7:46 pm, a Haverhill police officer arrived at the scene...

No one was inside or around the car...

The car's windshield was cracked on the driver's side and both airbags had deployed...

The car was locked. Inside and outside the car he discovered red stains that looked to be red wine...

The officer found a damaged box of Franzia wine on the rear seat...

Missing were Maura's debit card, credit cards, and cell phone, none of which have been located or used since her disappearance...

At 8:00 to 8:30 pm, a contractor returning home from Franconia saw a young person moving quickly on foot eastbound on Route 112 about 4 to 5 miles (6 to 8 km) east of where Maura's vehicle was discovered...T

his wasnt reported until 3 months later..

Just before 8:00 pm, EMS and a fire truck arrived to clear the scene...

By 8:49 pm, the car had been towed to a local garage...

At about 9:30 pm, the responding officer left...

A rag believed to have been part of Maura's emergency roadside kit was discovered stuffed into the Saturn's muffler pipe...

Authorities would only refer to Maura as missing the next day, almost twenty-four hours after she was last seen...
