Stephen Morgan's family said in a statement at their Marblehead home on Thursday that they are "shocked and sickened" by the slaying of a 21-year-old Wesleyan University student on Wednesday and are cooperating with authorities. They say they do not know where Morgan is or where he might go.
Morgan's sister Diana read an appeal to her brother saying the family loves and supports him and doesn't want anyone else to get hurt.
A neighbor of Morgan's said he comes from a "model family." Penny Wigglesworth lives one house away. She said she doesn't know Stephen Morgan, well but calls him pleasant and polite.
