August 4, 1976 Antonio Morales (BKA) Tony was born and raised in Topsfield Massachusetts.

He lived with his mother and father before his father left them. Tony’s mother Theresa Morales raised him with love and respect. She pushed Tony to achieve his goals in life she taught him that anything he dreamt of could be his and there was nothing too big or too small that he couldn’t have if he worked hard for it. She taught him the value of school and life.

1981 The first day Tony started the first grade, his mother told him about the kind of life she and his father had growing up in their country, and that was not the kind of life she wanted for him. He must learn everything that is taught to him in school. He must be obedient to the teachers, to respect his elders. To be kind to everyone. Before Tony entered his class Mrs. Morales placed an apple in her sons hand and told him that America was one big apple, you can either take a bite of this apple that was given to you for free, or you can just throw it into the trash to rot. America has so much to offer and if you don’t take advantage of the opportunities given, you will become nothing? The apple in your hand has much more to offer than its sweetness; inside the core has many seeds. You can throw them away by the side of the road where it will never grow or you can plant them in your own back yard, and enjoy the fruits of the land. Knowledge is given to you every day, you can either apply yourself at school. Receive the education given or just let your mind go to waste.  Be successful. And let no one or anything come in your way or tie you down. She taught him about love and women. How to be strong and love only when have too.  Through the years of high school Tony kept all the girls at arm’s length. His long silky jet black hair and his tall golden tan color made all the girls go crazy. They all were in love with him but he had a mission to accomplish. He loved no one until one day….she came along. She made his heart spin. Barbara Espinal. The prettiest girl in the school. Captain of the cheer team. And behind all of her beautiness was a mind full of intelligence. Barbara and her family had moved from Topsfield to Florida and now she had just recently moved back to stay with her aunt. 

1993 Tony kept the words his mother told him about America and the apple inside his wallet. He knew coming from a Latin family, he would have to work harder. He kept a to do list by his bed and by the end of the night he would have to accomplish everything he had on the list. On graduation day he graduated with honors. He made his mother proud. He went on to Topsfield Mariana University.

1996 After being in college for two years he quit college and married Barbara. They life was going well until he joined the police academy when Barbara lost their baby.  

1998 Tony joined the Toppers field Police department.  And spent more times at his mother’s house then home. Barbara’s miscarriage caused turmoil between the two and he began sleeping around. When she confronted him of his antics. He decided to separate from her, even when Barbara begged him not to leave and to go to marriage counseling, he refused. Barbara told him she did not marry for divorce. He said he only needed time.

2001 Tony was transferred to the homicide department team on the force. For six months he began to feel at peace on his job. He applied himself, not taking a break from work. Even though he missed his wife the best thing was to stay focused.  He became so content when they made him leader of the team. He finally began to enjoy his job when his life was disrupted by the bad news he received from one of his family members. Tony had to move quickly with his mother to Florida. He knew his life would never be the same.
