Domestic Homicides Pose Challenges


* Janet Abaroa, 25, was pregnant when someone stabbed her to death in the bedroom of her Durham home on April 26, 2005.
* Michelle Young, 29, also pregnant, was found dead in her Wake County home on Nov. 3, 2006, beaten to death.
* The 10-year-old son of Rose Wynn, 53, a pastor's wife, found her beaten to death on the kitchen floor of her Raeford home on June 26.
* On July 14, Nancy Cooper, 34, a Cary mother reported missing two days earlier, was found dead at a construction site not far from her home.

Already this year, husbands or boyfriends are accused of killing 57 women in North Carolina, according to the North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

"The most dangerous time for a woman that's in a domestic violence situation a woman or man that's in a domestic violence situation is when they make that determination that they're going to leave," Hartzell said."

Janet Abaroa and her husband, Raven Abaroa, had reconciled after a separation before she was killed. Investigators say the couple was also having financial difficulties.

"In a domestic case, (investigators are) going to be looking at financial problems," defense attorney and former federal prosecutor Dan Boyce said. "They're going to be looking at infidelity or strife in the marriage. But that, in and of itself, doesn't prove the crime."

Boyce says domestic homicides can be especially difficult to clear because DNA evidence is often useless. Although DNA is used to solve many homicides, a spouse's DNA will naturally be found in the home and on the victim.

"There may be a very plausible reason for an individual's DNA to appear or a fingerprint to appear in the house, on the car, even on the body," Boyce said.

Boyce says that although investigators only need probable cause to make an arrest, prosecutors want a case that is ready to go to trial.

"They're looking at a much higher burden," he said. "'Can I prove this beyond a reasonable doubt in front of a jury?'"

"There's no do-overs, there is no 'We'll take a second chance on that,'" Morgan said.

Morgan says the time it takes to build such a case can be excruciating, but says he believes the cases of Wynn, Cooper, Young and Abaroa will ultimately be solved.

"Good investigators all around the world come in every day, whether it's a year, two years, 10 years down the road, and they say, 'I'm still going to solve this case," he said.'"

For the most part, the husbands of the victims have said little publicly about their wives' deaths. Recently, in a television interview, Raven Abaroa denied killing his wife.

This is the key reason I feel that we're still sitting here after 3 years. Maybe 4 years will be the lucky number as it was in the case mentioned in the article.

Wouldn't "be(ing) the change you wish to see in the world" include placing the safety of our children before our own needs? Apparently, that amazing quote by that amazing man means different things to different people. I guess it's a lot easier to post it than it is to abide by it.

I can't imagine starting my life with a man that has such a past that I'd have to abandon my wedding page to get away from the criticism.

If she honestly believes she could change Raven.....then she's got another thing coming.

Maybe she really truly likes the danger and the drama. We see how people are out there that have children and don't really care about their children. Their happiness comes before their child's.

Actually there is a brand new story there today - announcing he's married already but I think they got that wrong, since they did not change their invitations.

Every time I see that picture of those two it makes me wanna hurl!

Sigh.....

I know people are frustrated and stuff, but there are times to see the irony in things.

Seeing the tacky picture of V-Rave splayed on the front page of NC WANTED. I can't believe they honestly think it is a flattering picture.

It seems that if notoriety was something they wanted, their wedding will now be linked with the horrible facts of this case.

I do like that only a small portion of the article is dedicated to the nuptials and the rest looks like a neon sign pointing to Raven!

ps - whoever coined V-Ray - thank you - that is so clever and actually made me laugh.
