Kansas Op-Ed: Neely Goen, Daughter of Murder Victim, Opposes Death Penalty


Neely Goen never met her father.  His name was Conroy O’Brien, and he was a Kansas state trooper who was murdered in the line of duty.


Neely told her story, and how she came to oppose the death penalty, in an op-ed to the Wichita Eagle published today.


Neely wrote:

“My father’s murder, along with other cases, led people to call for a return of the death penalty, which Kansas eventually reinstated in 1994.

But over time, after I saw how the death penalty system actually works, my feelings on the issue changed.

What I’ve discovered is a legal process that no murder victim’s family should have to endure.”
