Kevin Mengel Gave His Life to ‘Keep Family Together’
Article here. Excerpt:
'Kevin Mengel gave his all to keep his family together. Eventually he gave his life. Here’s one story (Delco Times, 8/8/11).
According to police records, Mengel was murdered by his wife and her boyfriend on June 17, 2010. The West Goshen Township, Pennsylvania man had had a stormy relationship with his wife, Morgan Mengel, throughout the 12 years of their marriage.
That included his leaving her once and her filing for divorce and then withdrawing the petition. They had three children, 12, 10 and 6.
Friends and neighbors say that Morgan Mengel had numerous extra-marital affairs throughout the marriage and that Kevin knew about them.
Second, Kevin Mengel’s death will not be recorded as a spousal murder by law enforcement authorities. It’ll be called a “multiple offender homicide,” meaning that two or more people participated. That’s perfectly accurate of course, but also skews the statistics on how many husbands are killed each year by their wives. It seems that when women want to kill their husbands or boyfriends, they tend to hire someone else to do the job rather than doing it themselves.
So while official statistics show that about 1,300 women are killed each year by their husbands or boyfriends and about 300 men are killed by their significant others, those statistics understate the number of men killed. The actual number is higher due to the “multiple offender” category.'
