Teenager Whose Grandfather Commited Suicide Following Her Accusations Of Rape Begs For Forgiveness


A teenager who lied she was raped by her grandfather leading to him killing himself during his trial  has written a heartfelt letter to her grandmother asking for forgiveness.


Megan Morrison, 17, gave evidence in court saying she was raped and sexually assaulted by her grandfather Malcolm Harrison, 74, between the ages of eight and 10.

He denied the charges but  was later found dead in a burning car in a suspected suicide on the final day of his trial before he could be convicted of any offences.

But Miss Morrison, of Sinfin, Derby, stood by her story, which has resulted in an estrangement with her grandmother Vivienne Harrison, 62.

In the emotional note, Miss Morrison tells her grandmother:
 'I still love you.'
 'Everything I said was true. I know it's hard to believe because he was your husband. I miss you so much....Please don't hate me.
'I just want her back. We used to be have such a strong relationship.
'I have written nan a letter telling her that everything I told the police and said in court is true and that this did happen to me.
'I have told her in my letter that I know it is hard for her to believe because he was her husband and I didn't say anything because I didn't want to lose her.
'I love my nan so much and I just want her to believe what happened to me and we can be friends again. I would take her back in a heartbeat.
'He would say to me 'don't tell your mum, this is our little secret'. But when I was 10 I told him if he didn't stop then I would tell someone and the abuse did stop then.'

The teenager's mum who works as a nurse, added:
 'When I found out about the allegations, she started crying down the phone saying she didn't want to lose her nan
'I told her that we had got to do the right thing and we called the police.
'The reason we are doing this is because we want Megan to get her relationship back with her nan.
'I don't care what my mum thinks about me, I just want her and Miss Morrison to be friends again.
'When she was born my mum used to help me with Miss Morrison.
'She was going on holidays with her, Miss Morrison used to do some baking with her - she used to do absolutely everything with her.
'After dad was arrested I called mum to say sorry but she just put the phone down.

'She hasn't spoken to me or Megan for a year.'
