Another man charged in connection with Gallagher’s death, Ernest Whitehead, appeared in court Thursday afternoon and his case was adjourned until August 4.

Whitehead held up a sheet of paper and told the judge that he wanted to read something.

The judge told Whitehead that Thursday’s proceedings were being recorded and that “it was probably best” for him to talk to his lawyer.

Whitehead, who is out on bail, stormed out of the courtroom.

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

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

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

“Even if the justice system gets justice, we will never see Megan again.”

Brain also expressed concern about people who may have information about his daughter who aren’t speaking up.

“That silence is literally killing us. It devours our whole being every day. 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.”
