Homicide and Attempted Suicide in Ogden are Acts of Intimate Partner Violence

Salt Lake City, Utah – Yesterday’s homicide and attempted suicide in Ogden—involving a man who shot and killed his ex-girlfriend and then, after hours of negotiations with Ogden City Police Department, attempted to take his own life—are acts of domestic/intimate partner violence

As humans, we all have a responsibility to prevent and stop violence. We encourage the media and the public to share resources and facts in response to this incident, the primary facts being:

  • A 41-year-old woman was shot and killed by her ex-boyfriend—this is domestic/intimate partner violence
  • The ex-boyfriend/male suspect attempted to die by suicide—this is directly related to domestic/intimate partner violence

These violent incidents are often triggers for survivors and their loved ones. This simple message details resources and a call to action: 

Free and confidential help and support for victims and survivors of domestic or intimate partner violence is available 24/7:

1-800-897-LINK (5465)

National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-TALK (8255)

If you or someone else is in immediate danger, or in an emergency, please call 9-1-1 immediately.

Lastly, we strongly discourage sharing and/or viewing live videos of yesterday’s violence. Live streaming and sharing these videos causes further harm and does not prevent violence.
