Morgan Douglas, Dixon Fife and Michael Roberts Convicted of Transporting, Burning Body of Lexie Doga
Although 26-year-old Lexie Doga died in November 2020, details surrounding what happened to her during and after her death continue to materialize. It’s unclear whether Doga was murdered or passed away due to a drug overdose, but those responsible for desecrating her body have been convicted.
Morgan Douglas, Dixon Fife, and Michael Roberts all pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice on September 2nd for placing Doga’s corpse in a car and lighting it on fire in Beauregard Parish. Each man can face up to 20 years in prison, but could ultimately spend much less time behind bars for time already served and the terms of the plea agreement.
An autopsy revealed that Doga had elevated levels of methamphetamine in her system, which may have been a contributing cause of her death. She left behind two children and was an accomplished student athlete in her teenage years.
“I can tell you that she graduated as a valedictorian from I think Lacassine High School,” said First Assistant District Attorney Richard Morton. “She was a track star, a basketball star, a beautiful young woman whose life was tragically ended directly as a result of drugs.” Via KPLCTV.com
Although they’re facing legal consequences for their horrific actions in November 2020, we’re still left wondering two things: Why did they do it? Why didn’t they try to get her help?
“These guys did not have medical training, they did not know and could not determine that she was deceased. The first thing they should have done was call 911 and try to get help for this young lady. They did not do that,” said Morton. Via KPLCTV.com
