(CCN) A 15-year-old girl who had been missing from Turlock, Nevada has been found in Las Vegas. Police say that her abductor was one of their own: a police officer. Officer Daniel Boon Morgan is a police officer from Oklahoma, police said.
Alexis Odisho left with Officer Morgan under coercion, falling under state rape laws. Because the abductor, Officer Morgan, is a police officer, local media treated the situation with kid gloves.
Some of the phrasing in local reports emphasized that she went “willingly” with the officer – a designation that is legally meaningless in this case, and questionable at best.
The Turlock Police Department did tell us that Officer Morgan is more than twice the teen’s age, and that under state law she could not consent to sex with the officer.
Officer Morgan is on paid administrative leave. We have still not received word back as to why Morgan was on leave from his hometown Kiowa Police Department.

…We have a small favor to ask. Fewer and fewer people are seeing Anti-Media articles as social media sites crack down on us, and advertising revenues across the board are quickly declining.

Hopefully, you can see why we need to ask for your help. Anti-Media’s independent journalism and analysis takes substantial time, resources, and effort to produce, but we do it because we believe in our message and hope you do, too.
