Please Note: This Video Does Contain Crime Scene Footage. Some Viewers May Find It Disturbing. Alternatively you can listen to the message with your eyes closed.

On September 20, 2017 my friend Jason Murphy tragically died under mysterious circumstances just two weeks after his honeymoon. At age 34, he'd never been happier in his life. Jason took the LA Metro home from a premiere screening in North Hollywood that night, and a few hours later his body was found in the LA River, halfway between Lincoln-Cypress Metro station & his destination: home. Jason's wife Dina explains in the video getting the call from LA County Coroner's Office, and the nightmare that only just began with Jason's death.

She has walked through hell for the past 18 months trying to get answers about what really happened. How Jason wound up unconscious in 2" of water with a black eye & a herniated diaphragm has haunted her nonstop since she got the call. She's moved twice for her own safety and wellbeing. Dina's emotional trauma has been compounded by victim blaming from law enforcement, LA City & LA County offices. LAPD outright refuse to help her. Dina has tried to work with the Police and exhausted every reasonable way to get them to investigate. In fact, it appears they're blocking her from finding out how her husband died!

There are many reasons to believe that Jason's death was actually a homicide and therefore his death deserves a full and complete investigation. Dina needs financial support to hire a professional private investigator to canvass the area further, collect and verify new evidence.  She will also need to retain a lawyer to represent her in a lawsuit to reclassify Jason's death as a Homicide, or even Undetermined.  

Please donate what you can to help Dina with this investigation and legal fees. Also, please share with your communities. Your support and reposts can help solve a mystery, bring closure to a grieving widow, and justice for Jason.

Thank you,

M.J. Loheed

In almost 8 weeks we have raised $27,500+ and it's thanks to all 569 of you who generously donated! Also, to our Venmo/cash/personal check donors... Thank you! Word-of-mouth has helped immensely, including 2,000 Facebook posts! I am in awe and deep gratitude.

We are 7.5 weeks into fundraising & 5.5 weeks into the investigation. Our 2 month goal is $30K. With everyone's help we can meet this goal this weekend.

If you have given once, please consider making another contribution. This campaign has received donations from $5-$500. Any amount helps our mission, truly.

A very special thanks to those who have already given 2, 3, and 4 times. S/O to our monthly donor for your sustained support!!

A reminder of what this is about. Imagine your favorite person was found in a ditch and you (and they) were treated like dirt by civil servants. That you were bullied by law enforcement & your beloved's death swept under the rug only after victim shaming you & criminalizing your late partner. Most importantly, your PD did not do their jobs. No investigation. This is what this fundraising campaign is all about: making things right, answers, and closure. Maybe one day we'll be able to change policy. For now I just want to know what happened to Jason Murphy on 9/20/17, who was involved, and why did this have to happen. I want the truth to come to light, and I believe it will.

I would like nothing more than to grace you with a detailed investigation report, though as Jason Murphy would say, it would not be prudent at this juncture. I can tell you this: everything is going very well. Our team has the experience, contacts, and know-how. In fact, they are the Best of the Best. We have agents in the field, a lawyer on call and we are currently reviewing pathology experts to bring onboard to analyze LA County Coroner's findings.

A lot of work has already been done, and there is more to be done. To do a complete, 3-month investigation we will need a grand total of $50,000. Please help us reach our two-month goal of $30K by giving what you can & sharing again on Facebook. Most shared once when we first launched. Consider this was 2 months ago & please try to Donate & Post again.

Thank you everyone with my whole heart. I really cannot do this alone. I need y'all now. Until we are done with this nightmare you are bringing me Hope.

Hello Justice for Jason Family,
We are one month into the private investigation and all is very well. The recent press is showing positive results and our PI team continues on. There is a lot of work to do and we are doing it.

So far we have used $15K of the funds raised on the following: numerous hours of interviews & transcription fees, field work by two agents, consulting time and analyses/reports from an expert criminologist. This is money is well spent, as all work strengthens our case.

Still, we will need more funding to stay the course. Dina has just retained a lawyer at $350 for up to 10+ hours of work, plus she is enlisting an expert pathologist to critically analyze the Coroner's findings.

If you have donated once, please consider making another contribution, in any amount - and please share this campaign again on social media - this combined effort will take us to our $50,000 goal which will ensure completion of a thorough investigation & airtight case to leverage changing the Final Cause of Death classification from Accidental to Undetermined.

We appreciate you All - We are doing this Together. THANK YOU!

Hi everyone,
Our story was on the CBS LA / KCAL Channel 9 news this week. It aired Tuesday night, again yesterday at noon, and it will air again locally over the weekend. You can watch the segment at the below link. Thanks to a dear friend who is connected to reporter Tom Wait's supervisor for making this happen. Thanks of course to Tom Wait as well. If you're going to be interviewed at home on a painful subject, let it be someone as respectful & reverent as he.
Lots of love,
Mrs. Jason Murphy

We are a few weeks into the private investigation now. Our PI has conducted interviews with Jason's loved ones, as well as witnesses who were with him at the #FromJennifer premiere on 9/19/17. The PI team has begun their initial field work, which will continue. The team is presently expanding to include criminologists, expert pathologists, and legal advocacy. It's a strong start! And that is all thanks to your help and support. Please keep sharing this campaign and thank you!
