I was very sad to hear of Marilyn Morgan dying alone in her car. I am thoroughly disgusted with the powers that be, those in authority, who did little if anything to find her.

When there is a fire nearby, all our homes are called to alert us to the problem. Why couldn’t we have been alerted that an 83-year-old, white-haired woman in a white car was missing? All living in this area could have been asked to look on their street and any nearby alleys or parking lots for her car. Volunteers could have put posters with her photograph all over the towns.

There is always a banner across Highway 246 east of Pine Street. It is used by the City of Solvang to announce events. Wasn’t this more important than Halloween or any other event you wanted to advertise?

Lost dogs and cats usually get better treatment that this poor woman. Their owners at least put up flyers, and some go door-to-door in addition to offering a reward.

In my opinion, the fact that many who live in Solvang did not know Marilyn Morgan was missing is a disgrace. If this is the best our police chief can do, his best is not enough. We need an investigation.
