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,

Jason Murphy & I were about to start a vintage t shirt store online a few years ago, and it got lost in the chaos of moving to Frogtown, our surprize elopement & honeymoon...then Jason’s death. New phase of fundraising = donations for tees! I am really happy to launch this project as a fundraising effort for Justice for Jason. We have less than 1/3 left to raise til we meet our goal. Please check out www.instagram.com/thewidowbride & keep your eye on it for new tees, plus some of Jason’s gear & art (we'll be raffling off his camera/rig and framed QOTSA poster from their secret show in LA 2o15). There will be some of Jason's own tees & some will be those we’d collected together for the online shop we’d started curating. Remember please: this iteration is Not a Store, there are no returns or refunds. Make a donation & get a gift as a thank you for your contribution toward the good fight! Hope this provides you with warm fuzzy feels as well.
Thanks to my dear pals who helped me pull this off: Emilia, Halle, Joo Joo, Maddie, Marylene & Remy. Also thanks to my huzbo Jason Murphy for always applauding me, cheering on my every endeavor, and supporting me with his time, love, elbow grease and bad puns. Have a great weekend, y'all.

On this day 5 years ago Jason Murphy had his right testicle surgically removed & it was on that day - July 3, 2014 - that I met his mom, Suzanne York, now my mother-in-law, for the very first time. I was the new girlfriend. I remember Suzanne hugged me hello saying, "I wish we were meeting under better circumstances!"

Jason had been in physical pain for many months and suspecting he'd been misdiagnosed by one urologist, he switched to another who ordered the ultrasound that detected the mass which required removal. After the surgery, a biopsy revealed it was in fact testicular cancer. Jason was given 3 options of treatment: chemo, surgical removal of abdominal lymph nodes, or surveillance. Jason deliberated. Then he chose surveillance.

Every 3 months for 2 years Jason got blood work & CT scans at Norris Cancer Center. I offered to go with him but he was adamant about going by himself. He would get a little quiet the day before, then mere hours afterward we would meet up at HomeState for breakfast tacos & queso to celebrate another clear check-up. This was the ritual. The third year he only had to go in every 6 months. Jason's 3 year check-up was the one that we celebrated big: we left for our honeymoon to Ireland, Copenhagen, and Oslo the day after the clear results. Our honeymoon was designed this way. Jason graduated to annual check ups. The emotional & psychic weight was lifting as our marriage lifted off.

This goes without saying, but Jason's cancer scare never affected his buoyant demeanor and overall zest for living, talking, dancing, pontificating, joking, music, politics, hip hop, dogs, facts & fun. He was so present and so curious about each of us in his life.

So this is my tale for July 3, 2019. It just so happens the internet is semi broken today - parts of Instagram & Facebook aren't functioning as usual - how about making a donation to Justice for Jason?

We are nearly 2/3 of the way to our ultimate goal; $505 away from $33,330. We are $6,670 away from $40K, a sum that ensures us working with my top choice of independent pathologists to re-evaluate LA County Coroner's office findings. Then we will be in the home stretch. If you would consider making even a token donation this holiday weekend - Christmas in July if you will - to give (again) to our fund, we will be that much closer to doing a complete and thorough investigation.

I thank you all in advance & I wish you the happiest of long weekends with your family & friends.
Love, Mrs. Jason Murphy

Hey Friends,

Thank you once again for your help spreading the word as we continue to work on Justice For Jason. Dina and I have learned a great deal about what goes into investigations like this in the last few months. It is an incredible amount of work and requires the help of professionals. So, we are continuing to push to raise more funds and have our sights set on our next goal of $40,000 as we head into critical phase.

The time has come to hire an independent board-certified forensic pathologist to review all the evidence such as photos, tissue samples, and reports from the LA County Coroner's autopsy and provide an expert analysis. This is an expensive process at $8500. On top of that collecting the material from the coroner's office has required the services of a lawyer at a discounted rate of $350 an hour.

This doctor's analysis is critical to our case. If he can substantiate our belief that Jason's death was not an accident then we are that much close to our goal of changing the LA County Coroner's final cause of death ruling from "Accidental" to "Undetermined"

If you're reading this you've already donated to our cause. Thank you! Can I ask you to take one more step and hit the "Share" button? Please help spread the word.
