    Indiana Father Kills Sex Offender Who Broke Into Home
    Monday , September 29, 2008





    A convicted sex offender died Sunday during a struggle with a father who found the naked man in or near his 17-year-old daughter's bedroom, police said.

    Police responding to a call from the city's northwest side about 3:20 a.m. found 64-year-old Robert McNally on the hallway floor with his arm around the neck of 52-year-old David T. Meyers, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Police spokesman Sgt. Matthew Mount said Meyers had a heart condition and may have had a heart attack. An autopsy was planned.

    Police said Meyers was naked except for a mask and latex gloves and had entered the home through a window near the girl's bedroom with rope, condoms and a knife. He was familiar with the home's layout because it belonged to a relative, police said.

    The girl awoke and screamed when she saw the man in her room, police said. The father responded and struggled with the intruder while the girl's mother phoned 911.

    Police did not anticipate any charges against McNally.

    "If a person breaks into your home, you are justified in using deadly force in defending your family," said Mount. "In this situation, I don't think he was trying to kill him, he was trying to hold him down."

    Meyers had served 10 years in prison for criminal confinement and sexual deviate conduct and was wanted in Boone County for failure to register as a sex offender. He was registered as a sex offender in Marion County.

    Police said Meyers lived with his mother and had recently lost his job.

    The death is under investigation and will be reviewed by a Marion County prosecutor.

    "Nobody wins," McNally told The Indianapolis Star. "It's a lose-lose situation for everybody. He has family also."

    He said his daughter went to church Sunday after the incident.

    It had a good ending but if the BG had been younger, bigger , stronger or there had been more than one it could have been very different. That is why we need to be armed.

  5. I think the father was in bed at the time. Personally, I NEVER carry in bed. Bad manners, and very uncomfortable.

    I never carry in bed but you can bet there is a gun on the night stand right beside my bed.

    A gun under the pillow, or tucked in the bed frame is real good idea.

    Neither do I but I have one loaded handgun under my pillow and another in the nightstand next to the bed and a 12 GA behind the door. You just never know.
