    FOX23 found documents filed on the day Morgan died that show a court of appeals filed in her favor in a long child custody case just days before. 

    The ruling found that Spaulding would have to pay Morgan for tens of thousands of dollars in court costs related to the custody case. The child will now go into DHS custody, and then officials will determine if he will live with a family member.

    Morgan also reportedly wrote a chilling note just a month before her death.

    The post detailed alleged physical, emotional and mental abuse at the hands of Spaulding.

    "He was smooth and had me fearing everything he said would come true," Morgan said.
