Ohio Women murdered in front of AA meeting Shot 6 times in front of 20 AA members

THIS IS A TRAGIC STORY-

Stephen Chancey met and married his third wife, Joyce, at the Sharonville Alcoholics Anonymous meetings both attended. That’s also where he killed her, shooting her six times when, as she was divorcing him, she had the nerve to show up there after he told her to stay away.

Chancey’s third marriage, like his first two, crumbled after his wife accused him of abusing her.

Joyce Lynn Chancey, 44, grew so scared of her husband that she got a restraining order against him on Oct. 29, 2001.

That didn’t stop Chancey from showing up at her house and stalking her in the months after that or from giving graphic details during an AA meeting — as he stared at his wife — about his “army training in killing.”

She became so frightened that she sought a second protective order Feb. 8, citing his deteriorating mental condition and statements he had made to a friend about doing harm to his wife or her daughter.

“Now I fear what he will do to me if I show up at my (AA) meeting on Sunday,” she wrote in that order.

She had reason to fear.

Two days later, as she arrived at the Sharonville AA meeting, Chancey saw her pull her car into a parking lot. He walked up to her and shot her six times in front of about 20 people.

When anti-gun extremists are faced with questions about how law-abiding citizens can protect themselves from criminals in the midst of gun bans, they usually claim the police or more stringent laws can protect us.

But as with the story “Dial 911 & Your Neighbor Dies”, this event proves that laws or restraining orders cannot stop a person intent on doing harm, and that police are most often relegated to cleaning up after a crime was committed, rather than preventing it from happening.

In July 1987, Amherst resident Judith Whitney went to New Hampshire with a man named Edward Mayrand, whom she met at an Alcoholic’s Anonymous meeting the month before.

She was never seen again.

Four months later, a hunter discovered her body buried in a shallow grave in Winchester, N.H.

While police suspected Mayrand, they never had enough evidence to charge him, even though he was in possession of her car and a handgun.

But on Tuesday the New Hampshire Cold Case Unit established in 2009 found that Mayrand was indeed the killer. However, he died in 2011 of metastatic cancer, so he will never be charged.

Mayrand once lived in Northampton at Hairston House, a halfway house for recovering alcoholics. He was on parole for rape when he met Whitney
