David T. Meyers - Repeat Sex Offender - killed by his targets father

Indianapolis police say a convicted sex offender died during a struggle after a father found the man in his 17-year-old daughter's bedroom.

Marchele Hall of the Marion County coroner's office says the cause of 52-year-old David T. Meyers' death was ruled Monday to be asphyxia by strangulation with contributing cardiovascular disease.

County prosecutor's office spokesman Matthew Symons says no charges are anticipated against 64-year-old Robert McNally, who locked his arm around Meyers' neck and held him when he found him in his 17-year-old daughter's bedroom early Sunday.

Police responding to a call from the city's northwest side about 3:20 a.m. Sunday found McNally on the hallway floor with his arm around the neck of Meyers, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say Meyers was naked except for a mask and latex gloves and had entered the home through a window with rope, condoms and a knife.

Police say the girl awoke and saw the man in her room and screamed.

Meyers had served 10 years in prison for criminal confinement and sexual deviate conduct and was wanted in Boone County for failure to register as a sex offender.
