You might wonder what a drunk driving incident has to do with child abuse, and that would be fair. Every news account of Meghan’s death paints it as an anomaly, a single incident of alcohol-skewed judgment on the part of her father. What no news outlet dared report on was the years of psychological abuse Meghan endured at the hands of her father and how that relationship culminated in the untimely death of a teenager.
In today’s episode, I’ll tell you the story of a vibrant, funny young lady who was loved by everyone who came in contact with her. In next week’s episode, you’ll hear my interview with Meghan’s mom, Lisa, and sister, Sarah, who paint a dark picture of a family life filled with alcoholism, abuse, and Shaun’s escalating erratic behavior leading up to Meghan’s death.
This is part one of the devastating story of Meghan Bomford.
