Rachel Morin Obituary, Death – Ever since the notice that Rachel Morin was missing was placed on social media just over a week ago, the killing of Rachel Morin, a mother of five who liked to walk the trail in Bel Air where her body was found, has been a hot issue both online and in the national media. The trail in Bel Air is where her body was recovered. On August 5, Morin’s boyfriend made the report that she was missing after she went on a stroll on the Ma & Pa Trail. Morin is 37 years old. The next day, her body was discovered approximately a mile from the trailhead where the hike began. An investigation into a homicide is now being led by the Harford County Sheriff’s Office.
Robert Royster, a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office, stated on Tuesday that five witnesses who investigators were seeking for because they may have been on the path around the time Morin was have been discovered and interrogated. The reason detectives were looking for these witnesses was because they may have been on the trail around the time Morin was. Royster asserted that other claims were not supported by the evidence at this time.
In her appearances on Fox Nation, TV legal pundit Nancy Grace, who is well-known for her loud approach to reporting on genuine crimes and who also owns the website crimeonline.com, has been following the case as well. Grace has referred to Morin as a “hiker mom” in her coverage of the case. Friday’s edition of the “Crime Stories with Nancy Grace” podcast, which can be listened to on iHeart Radio and Sirius XM, included a discussion on this topic as well.
On Friday, a woman from Norrisville named Jodie Otte addressed the question “What is it about this case in particular that [it] is now all over the country?” in a post she made on Facebook. “The involvement of the media came as somewhat of a surprise to us.” Residents of Harford County, including Angie Becker, are taking to social media to express their disgust at everything that has been said.
“It just makes me sick to my stomach to see all of the comments and speculations,” Becker wrote in a post that she published on Saturday. “…It is totally repugnant and inexcusable to continue rubbing salt in the wounds of a bereaved family and friends…. Although there are circumstances in which social media can be helpful, there are also circumstances in which it can be quite damaging. According to Becker, some individuals are attempting to act as “internet commandos” rather than reporting any information they may have to the appropriate authorities.
