  1. The witness is lying rhe cameras will show she stayed by the gas stations window and never got close to the fight there are some serious holes in this so called witness’s story.why haven’t they cleared Morgan huey if they have video of the incident? There are two witness’s that can testified she stood by her man’s back pack .I contacted the speedway night clerk and asked him if he provided video of the incident to the detectives he was evasive and had no clear answers. This is a 21 year old college educated woman with mo record of violence, has never even been to a jail before. Busted her ass as a homeless Pearson that moved 850 miles to Utah just to find work ,start a new life and build a family .in two weeks she landed a 15 doller an hour job and has an apartment lined up. All she has done , all the horable things she’s had to endure her accomplishments are all about to be undone because someone’s lies
