    Nurse returns home, finds intruder, strangles him with bare hands

    Oregon nurse returning home discovers intruder, strangles him with bare hands

    Fri Sep 8, 6:28 PM

    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A nurse returning home from work discovered an intruder armed with a hammer in her home and strangled him with her bare hands, police said.

    Susan Kuhnhausen, 51, ran to a neighbour's house after the confrontation Wednesday night. Police found the body of Edward Haffey 59, a convicted felon with a long police record. Officer Katherine Kent said homicide detectives have determined that Kuhnhausen killed Haffey in self-defence. She said a prosecutor is investigating but that the case is not expected to go to a grand jury.

    Police said there was no obvious sign of forced entry at the house when Kuhnhausen, an emergency room nurse at Providence Portland Medical Center, got home from work shortly after 6 p.m.

    Under Oregon law people can use reasonable deadly force when defending themselves against an intruder or burglar in their homes. Kuhnhausen was treated and released for minor injuries at Providence.

    Haffey, about 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds, had convictions including conspiracy to commit aggravated murder, robbery, drug charges and possession of burglary tools. Neighbours said Kuhnhausen's size - 5-foot-7 and 260 pounds - may have given her an advantage.

    "Everyone that I've talked to says 'Hurray for Susan,' said neighbour Annie Warnock, who called the police emergency dispatcher. "You didn't need to calm her. She's an emergency room nurse. She's used to dealing with crisis."

    Quite probable. He was armed after all. Hard to see why he got killed. I'm also assuming that the 260 pounds is mostly fat rather than muscle, very rarely are women that huge. Then again, I could be wrong.

    A large hard workin' 51-yr old woman living in Oregon...c'mon she's gotta be a rough n' tumble lady. Took the guy off gaurd by taking the offensive, got that iron grip going, probably took a couple hits from him before he went down. His strikes did nothing due to adrenaline, he may have panicked, flailed, trachea and arteries cut off, he's out in no time. Makes sense to me.

    good for her- I've been burglarized more than once, and the police don't do **** afterwords, so this might be a more effective deterrent.

    Before she took up nursing, she was a massage therapist.

    If he tapped he might have gotten away.
