John Rich Reaches Out to Single Mother Who Killed Intruder

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

On New Year’s Eve, an 18 year old single mother took the life of an intruder who entered her home. Sarah McKinley and her three month old son were home alone when two men tried to break in. She took her son into the bedroom and called 911. With a shotgun in hand, she asked the operator for permission to fire her gun if the men got into her home. When the door flung open, Sarah fired, killing the 24 year old man. His accomplice eventually turned himself in.

This incident was just another piece of straw on the camel’s back. On Christmas day, Sarah’s husband died after a long battle of cancer.

John Rich
saw one of the several newscasts about the young mother, and reached out via Twitter

I’d like to find this woman who shot the intruder. Her husband died from cancer on Christmas day and she has a newborn. How do we find her?

Thx for helping me find this young woman. Can’t imagine how she feels. 18 yrs old, baby is 3 months, husband just passed. Now this? 2MUCH

Haven’t found her “direct info” yet but I will tomorrow. I’ll let you know the plan to help her once we see what her situation is. I’m ON IT

I’m not sure Sarah has a Twitter account, but something tells me that if John Rich plans to find her, he will.
