About a dozen of Gallagher’s family members and supporters attended Thursday’s court appearance.

Brian Gallagher, Megan’s father, said the justice system “has no services” for victim’s families.

“I get it, that everybody’s rights have to be protected. But us as the victims, the family, the people that are the victims of what’s happened with Megan, there’s nothing for us,” Brian said.

“Even if the justice system gets justice, we’ll still never see Megan again.”

Brian also raised concern about people that may have information about his daughter that aren’t speaking up.

“That silence is literally killing us. It eats away at our whole being everyday. There isn’t a moment, there isn’t a second in our lives that we don’t think about Megan.”

Brian remembers Megan as a caring person who liked to see others happy.

“She went out of her way to make people happy.”
