Really, what would you have done under these circumstances?
I am not asking you this to be argumentative, but really, what would you have done?
If I had a daughter I would think I would know her well and would do anything possible to help her if I sensed she was being harmed.
Obviously these people did not know this was going to happen as any parent would surrender their lives for their child's. I surely would not fear a psychotic abuser and would probably have killed him in order to protect my daughter. At minimum I would speak to the husband in order to get a better grasp of the situation.
