The Murder of Kathleen Connolly

Since our last post on 8/5/11 we have learned more about Tim Handel, the man who murdered and buried Kathleen Connolly in a friend’s backyard in Orange County, NY. The Times Herald Record reported on Saturday 8/6/11 that Handel would fly into fits of jealous rage, harassed her at work and checked her cell phone to see if she was speaking to other men.  He also is said to have told Kathleen’s co-workers that he has friends that know how to make people disappear.

Unfortunately, this story is typical of Intimate Partner Violence/Homicide. The victim’s friends, co-workers and relatives are usually aware of what is happening. There is an escalating pattern of verbal abuse and harassment that leads to physical abuse and in this case, homicide. What can be done?

We recommend the victim prepare an Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit designed by Intimate Partner Violence Strategy Specialist, Susan Murphy Milano.


The Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit: A Victim’s Voice

Domestic violence or intimate partner victims now are able to provide information, in their own words, about the fears, dangers, experiences they have had at the hands of their abuser. The” Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit” or “EAA” records victim’s stories, histories, and experiences which are preserved and stored on their behalf. These videos will provide answers to the many questions, allegations, and fears that arise when a person has disappeared, gone missing, or been found dead.

Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit by Susan Murphy Milano from the Book “Time’s Up” from Courage Network.
