On September 3, 2018 the Albion Police Department arrested Kevin J. McMullen, 32, at his residence located at 12394 West Lee Road in the Town of Albion. The Orleans County Sheriff’s Office assisted the Albion Police in taking McMullen into custody.
The arrest comes after an 9 month investigation conducted by the Albion Police Department, Orleans County Major Felony Crime Task Force, Orleans County District Attorney’s Office and the Monroe County Medical Examiner’s Office
McMullen was arrested in connection with the death of his wife, Megan McMullen Age 33. Megan McMullen died on December 18, 2017 at 346 West State Street in the Village of Albion as a result of an overdose of the Opiate Fentanyl.
The investigation revealed that Kevin McMullen transported Megan to the City of Rochester where he provided Fentanyl to her. Megan subsequently overdosed on the Fentanyl causing her to go into respiratory arrest. Kevin McMullen then performed rescue breaths on Megan until she began breathing. Kevin McMullen then transported Megan back to their residence at 346 West State Street in Albion where Megan again overdosed on the Fentanyl that Kevin had given her. Megan then went into Cardiac Arrest. Kevin McMullen then administered CPR on Megan. Kevin then, instead of calling 911 to get medical assistance for Megan, injected the Fentanyl into himself.
Kevin McMullen then called 911 several hours later. When the Albion Police and Ambulance staff arrived Megan McMullen was found to be deceased and beyond the time frame of lifesaving Medical Intervention.
