Apparently, rather than taking the advice of law enforcement and beginning the process of obtaining a protective order against her husband, murdered mother Megan Short began a different process. The process of leaving her husband. Reportedly, she signed a lease at a nearby apartment and began to move her things into it.
As Heavy reports, Megan may have been involved in a new relationship at the time of the planned separation. Rumors have swirled that she was dating another woman, a woman she'd met at a support group for parents of transplant survivors. All accounts indicate that Mark Short was absolutely infuriated by his wife's new relationship.
The final batch of murdered mother Megan Short's belongings were slated to be moved from the family home on August 6. Members of her family, including her mother, were supposed to meet Megan at her new home to help her finish up her move. Reportedly, after she didn't show up, her mother called the police to conduct a welfare check on murdered mother Megan short and her family.
Officers that responded to the Short family home broke into the residence when no one answered the door. It was then that the slain family was found.
"This was a very, very unfortunate incident. I don't know that anything can be learned, other than when leaving an abusive relationship it's often the most dangerous time for a victim."
Reportedly, the three young children were found wearing their pajamas.
