In the afternoon of July 24, 1996 an unknown person snatched Morgan outside her Colony Apartments home where she was playing with friends. At the time of the kidnapping, numerous witnesses reported seeing a man driving an older model, full-sized, maroon Chevrolet van grab Morgan and place her inside of the van.

Three months later on October 20, 1996, Morgan’s remains were found in a drainage area just off I-65 outside of White House, Tennessee. Police were never able to make an arrest in the case which still remains open today.

In the past, the story of Morgan Violi has been highlighted on the TV show “America’s Most Wanted.” Police recovered the van the kidnapper used, but they never made an arrest in the case.
