Utica police officials were “too busy” to respond to pleas from a woman whose abusive ex-boyfriend shot her to death in front of their 4-year-old daughter, the victim’s mother claims in court.
Barbara McGregor sued Utica, the Utica Police Department and police Officer Elizabeth Shanley, in Federal Court, on behalf of her late daughter Kylie Ann Turczyn.
Turczyn died at the hands of her estranged boyfriend, Thomas Anderson, in June 2012. Anderson, then 27, shot her in her family’s home outside Utica, then killed himself. When troopers arrived, they found Turczyn, 23, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. She was pronounced dead at a Utica hospital, according to media reports.
“On June 22, 2012, the decedent’s estranged boyfriend and father of her daughter,
Thomas Anderson, broke into her house carrying a gun,” the complaint states. “Kylie’s sister Amanda Henkle and niece G. managed to escape and Kylie barricaded herself in the bathroom. Anderson shot Turzyn repeatedly with a 9 mm rifle while she cowered in the bathroom, killing her in front of their four-year-old daughter, G.T. Anderson then turned the gun on himself and killed himself.
