Indiana Father Kills Sex Offender Who Broke Into Home

Monday, September 29, 2008

INDIANAPOLIS 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.

I'm glad McNally was able to keep his family safe.

Another place I visit that applies quirky headlines to news stories used the following headline for this one.

"Father finds a naked masked man with latex gloves, condoms and a knife in daughter's room. Death ensues."

So this was a relative who did this?

Well said Mount. Words to live by, no pun intended.

I don't think so. I think they're implying that the home either used to belong to one of Meyer's relatives, or is owned by a relative and the McNallys are renting it. Probably the former but it didn't say specifically.

Might be that a relative of this guy is renting the house to this family. If he was a relative of the girl I'd imagine the story would've played that up more.
