Haddonfield Criminal Lawyer: Fairmount Park Couple Killed in “Crime of Passion”

Two people were shot and killed in Fairmount Park in November in what is being called a “crime of passion” by police. The two people who were found dead at the scene, a man and a woman who were in a relationship, were also both in separate relationships with other people. The male and female victims, 25 and 32 years old respectively, were in the back of a white Toyota SUV in Fairmount Park at the time of the shooting. The shooter is alleged to have opened the rear door of the vehicle while the two were engaged in sexual activity and shot the couple at point blank range nine times in the head.

A captain of the Philadelphia Police Department’s Homicide Unit said that the other relationships of the victims were the focus of the department’s investigation. The police went on to say that whoever the shooter was, it was clear that they knew that the couple was in the park at that time. It unknown at the time what direction the shooter fled in after the fatal crime had been committed.

A crime of passion occurs when a perpetrator commits a crime against someone they know. These types of offenses are typically triggered by jealousy. Crimes of passion typically are not pre-meditated and are usually based on an emotional, impulsive reaction by the offender.

Reviews Matter

“First class representation. Michele was my son’s attorney after he made a slight but bad decision that hurt no one, but one that potentially could have a caused a lifetime of employment problems in the future, despite having a four year college degree. First of all Michele was very proactive in protecting his rights. Rights we were not even aware of. She provided quick and reliable answers to our questions. Before we met with her our anxiety and worry was insatiable. The peace we felt after our first consultation alleviated all that and we knew we picked the right attorney. Her excellent negotiation skills resulted in a settling his case quickly and without conviction.

We owe a debt of gratitude for her service. I was shocked at how much she was able to do for my son. She is a solid lawyer who is honest and works to insure the best possible outcome for her client is achieved.”
