AG's report says protection order against dad who shot son had expired
Muni Savyon, who killed himself after shooting his son to death during a supervised visit at the YWCA in Manchester on Aug. 11.
The seven-page Attorney General's report also shows that the mother of the boy, Becky Ranes, had taken the proper steps after a March 2012 threatening conversation with Savyon, a dedicated Libertarian and Free State activist, over custody of their son.
Ranes filed charges and sought a domestic violence petition. However, Savyon denied making the threat and told authorities he didn't own a gun. Police never searched Savyon's home, which would have required a search warrant.
Assistant Attorney General Jeffery Strelzin said the mistaken expiration likely played no role in the killing. Authorities weren't able to determine when Savyon acquired his gun, but he probably did so in a private sale, Strelzin said.
But the Savyon extension was not put into the system, he said.
In a statement, the New Hampshire Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence said no one should be able to see a child that the person has threatened to kill.
• YWCA Program Director Katie Schelzel said the organization stopped using metal detectors because staff would not know what to do if a parent showed up with a gun. She said Savyon had been wanded in the past, and the wand went off. He blamed it on metal cans he brought in for his son.
