Morgan – an Iraq veteran – thought he was hiring the KKK to kill his neighbor, Clifford Maurice Mosley; Morgan spelled out in graphic detail how he wanted the man killed.
Morgan reportedly suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder – a condition which has triggered suicidal thoughts and substance abuse; that – according to an interview conducted by the website al.com with Morgan in 2012.
According to court documents, Morgan believed Mosley had raped his wife days earlier. Mosley had been convicted of second degree sexual assault back in 2009, however the victim in that case was not Morgan’s wife; Mosley is not currently charged with any crime.
