Young Feminist Activist Murdered by Ex-Boyfriend

A 25-year-old feminist activist was apparently murdered by her 46-year-old boyfriend last week. The suspect fled to New Jersey where he was apprehended and subsequently committed suicide in police custody.

Law student Jana Lynn Mackey of Lawrence, KS was found dead in her ex-boyfriend's home.

Mackey worked as a lobbyist for the National Organization For Women for three years before returning to school to study law. She served as a volunteer advocate for the Ga Du Gi Safe Center in Lawrence, KS.

A fund has been set up at Jana's former law school to honor her memory:
