Pa. Police: Ex-Trooper Kills Wife, Self in Market

Comments: 6  | Leave A Comment

Traci Miscavish filed for divorce within the past week.

Her sister Gina March, speaking to reporters outside the supermarket after the shooting, said the system had failed both her sister and her brother-in-law.

“He wasn’t in his right mind,” March said. “I don’t believe he’s at fault, I believe he needed help. … And nobody was there to help him, not the judge, not the cops, not our system.”

State police planned an afternoon news conference to discuss the case.

Christina Price, who said she works at a liquor store in the same strip mall as the supermarket, told the Centre Daily Times that Traci Miscavish was a cheerful woman and so friendly and happy that “you couldn’t imagine there was stuff going on at home.”

Price told the newspaper she had no idea the woman had a protection order against her husband.

“Would it have stopped this?” she asked. “It’s like, how do you get out alive? When you’ve got kids and grandkids and friends and family, how do you split it and get away?”

  1. The system did fail this lady. They knew this animal was dangeous! She told them! They had the evidence and proof. Yet and still they freed him. Non threatening ppl get have to stay in jail. Yet a known animal gets out in the snap of a finger. Yeah thats a failed system! Just like the perv who got out on child porn charges…he then went to the mall…kidnapped a mother and her 10 yr old daughter. Rapes the child, kills the mother. They knew he was a danger to society…yet and still they gave him bond.

    • The system just about always fails when it comes to protecting women from animals like this one. That’s why you can’t fail yourself when it comes to protecting your own life when you know, better than anyone that someone is capable of that degree of violence. The system is not set up to incarcerate in order to provide protection. Only for punishment after they commit a crime. The system worked as it’s designed to. She failed herself.

  2. The system did fell this lady. They knew this animal was dangeous. She told them and they had the evidence and proof. Yet and still they freed him. Non threatening ppl get have to stay in jail. Yet a known animal gets out in the snap of a finger. Yeah thats a failed system. Just like the perv who got out on child porn charges…he then went to the mall…kidnapped a mother and her 10 yr old. Rapes the child, kills the mother. They knew he was a danger to society…yet and still they gave him bond.

  3. What the hell does she mean by “how do you get away”? You get away by putting a bullet in his ass as soon as he comes within spittin’ distance of you after you have a restraining order against him – especially if you have kids. The police are always minutes away when seconds count. You can’t depend on them to protect you. This woman already knew the next time she saw this dog he was going to kill her. She can’t blame the police, the system or anyone but herself for not being ready to put his ass down when he came gunniing for her. If He wasn’t in his right mind, he should have been put down like any other rabid animal. Women better wake the hell up and stop depending on help from everyone else to solve thier mad dog problems.

    • There you go blame the dead lady…way to go….continue showing off your Christian values.

      Here’s a thought..go piss on her grave while you’re at it.

      • You can blame anyone you like. But when you know that the next time you see someone, you will be looking down the barrel of gun, the only one responsible for protecting your life is you. I blame the animal that pulled the trigger for taking her life. I blame her for not pulling her own trigger first, since she knew of the threat. Self protection and preservation has got to be our main priority. Christian or not.
