REPORT: Suspect's family says Duncan girl was not kidnapped

PITTSBURGH, Penn._We’re learning more about a man now dead, and a Duncan teen found safe in the motel room where police say he shot himself in the head.


The Duncan teen who was reported missing Friday, was found in Pittsburgh Saturday evening. According to Pittsburgh Police, 15-year-old girl Summer Gregston was with 46-year-old Walter Morris. Officials believe the two met online.


According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Morris' family is now telling investigators they thought he was bringing home a 26-year-old Oklahoma bride. They say they were shocked to find out she was just 15-years old, and that Morris and Gregston both announced on Facebook they were married back on June 22nd. Investigators traced her phone to Ohio and contacted the FBI. After her phone signal dropped off, they called a number that was on the girl’s phone records, and the phone number turned out to be Morris’. He said when they stopped in Ohio Gregston ran off. A tip sent officers to a motel at about 3 p.m. on a report of a barricaded individual possibly holding a hostage. FBI agents, as well as, the Allegheny County Bomb Squad and SWAT teams surrounded the building. After a nearly six hour standoff Morris shot and killed himself. The medical examiner’s office said Morris died of a single gunshot to the head. Gregston was taken to a Pittsburgh Hospital and is okay. Investigators say it appears the two met on a dating site, but they're still working to piece everything together.

Duncan Police said her dad left Saturday, and should have arrived in Pittsburgh Sunday to pick up his daughter.
