Possible actual likeness of Dave Morgan

"Stuck in the Elevator Guy" (real name: Dave Morgan) was until recently, the owner and manager of the upscale Blue Flag Room restaurant in Utica, New York. Unlike most recordings, he was initially not a prank call victim (this has since changed, see below); instead, a recording of his call to a customer service center was leaked online.[1][2]

The call contains a recording of him screaming profanely at Mike, a customer service employee of the company who manufactured the elevator installed in Kitty’s On The Canal, the restaurant that Dave Morgan owned and operated at the time. In the call, Morgan is quite irate at the company as a whole, and threatens (metaphorically) to cause harm to the repairman when he shows up and the company at their own headquarters.

When asked if a passenger is inside the stuck elevator and Dave replies in the positive, the company employee tries to get more information on the situation. This keeps Morgan enraged, causing him to accuse the employee of considering him stupid, and leading him to make a sarcastic remark about how there is a Martian inside of the elevator. In the end, the company just tells him to call 911 to handle the problem and they'll send a repairman to his location.

Stuck in the Elevator Guy becomes a Prank VictimEdit

Dave Morgan was already well-known to the Prank Calling Community for quite sometime, thanks to the widely-distributed leaked recording of his irate call to the elevator company. More than one soundboard of his voice was available online and many prank calls had been made with them to other victims. Morgan himself, however, seemed to be blissfully unaware of his internet fame and so far as is known, had never been pranked. But, this was about to change.

On June 4, 2012, the YouTube uploader and prankster, PicklePranks, called Morgan's own restaurant several times with a soundboard of his voice. After cursing-out and annoying several staff members, he started trying to get the real Dave Morgan on the phone, but he was apparently not in the building. All was not lost, however and on the final call, a well-meaning female employee was successfully duped into revealing Morgan's cell phone number. After posting the video on YouTube, PicklePranks asked for suggestions for soundboards to call him with[3] and within hours, had posted a brand new set of calls to Dave himself from the Bail Bondsman.[4]

Though obviously irritated by the calls, Morgan managed to keep his cool for the most part, but still displayed hints of his infamous temper, insulting the Bail Bondsman multiple times and repeatedly questioning his intelligence, before finally concluding that he was "an absolute bumbling fool".[4]

At the time, it was anticipated that this would merely be the first of many new calls to this victim, but Morgan apparently caught on and stopped answering his cell phone after the Bail Bondsman calls. However, in April 2013, the YouTube uploader and prankster deathskull99 was able to briefly get through to him, although Morgan apparently suspected it was a prank call and hung-up after only a few seconds without saying anything funny.[5]


Insurance Fraud Conviction and Prison SentenceEdit

In February 2013, Dave Morgan and his wife 54-year-old wife, Cynthia, along with accomplices Joseph Demme, Michael Matrulli and Joseph Dellerba, were convicted in federal court in Syracuse, New York on charges of perpetrating a million-dollar insurance fraud.[6] Their conviction is the result of a joint investigation by the FBI and the New York State Insurance Frauds Bureau.[7] The Morgans and their accomplices were arrested on August 23, 2012.[8] It is currently unknown how long they were under investigation.

The charges stemmed from a staged automobile accident on March 20, 2006 in Utica, in which a Ryder rental truck driven by Dave was deliberately crashed into a Ford van on Harbor Lock Road. Cynthia Morgan, the apparent mastermind behind the scheme, then falsely claimed to be injured and subsequently collected over $108,000 under personal injury, no fault, and disability polices from Progressive Insurance and Mutual of Omaha[7][9], as well as an additional $30,000 payment to settle a civil lawsuit.[6] The scheme had reportedly been in the works since 2005.[9]

Cynthia Morgan was sentenced to 27 months in federal prison and will undergo three years of law enforcement supervision, following her release.

According to court documents, Dave plead guilty on all charges and was originally scheduled to be sentenced on Tuesday, March 12,[6] but this was later pushed back to Friday, July 26[10] and finally, mid-August. In spite of his guilty plea, Dave continued to deny all involvement in the insurance scam, claiming during a May 12 phone interview with the Syracuse Post-Standard newspaper, that he had been charged with mail fraud, because a settlement check written to his wife also contained his name.[11] Nevertheless, on August 13, 2013, Dave was sentenced by United States District Court Judge Norman A. Mordue, to a term of 21 months in federal prison, with three years of post-release supervision when he gets out and ordered to pay restitution in excess of $1.4 million dollars.[12][13] More details to follow as they become available.

Accomplice Joseph Dellerba was sentenced to 2½ years in federal prison and was ordered to pay $102,111 in fines immediately. The other two accomplices, Joseph Demme and Michael Matrulli, are scheduled to be sentenced on Monday, March 11 and Thursday, March 14 respectively.[6]

In addition, the five defendants have been ordered to jointly pay $1.4 million in restitution to the insurance companies, based on the total amount they had collectively received in payments from their scam.[6]

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Edward R. Broton.[7]

Morgan is now out of prison, and has opened a new Kitty's in New Hartford, which is operated by his son. [14]


Reported Health ProblemsEdit

According to Utica Topix Forums discussing Dave, he reportedly suffered a heart attack after many years of apparent cocaine usage. It has also been noted on the same forums that Dave may suffer from bipolar disorder, which may have led to his infamous outbursts.[15]
