LeROY – The deaths of Duncan and Jack Leichtenberg by their father in March could not have been predicted by the judicial, medical or law enforcement systems, according to a report issued Tuesday by a physician peer review panel. | MyPantagraph: LeRoy Neighborhood
Jack, 7, and Duncan, 9, were found dead March 29 in the backseat of their father’s car in rural Putnam County. Michael Connolly’s body was found several yards away, where he hanged himself. They had been missing since early March, when Connolly failed to return the boys after a weekend visit.
No, the judicial, medical or law enforcement systems cannot predict a child (or a woman’s) death, but the mother/woman often can. In fact, according to the femicide conference at John Jay College last November, a woman’s fear is the number one predictor of femicide.
But, then again, who will believe her?
