Daniel W. Campbell died attempting to rescue a woman from assault, Kansas City, Missouri, November 18, 1997. A 45-year-old woman was attacked by her live-in boyfriend shortly after she arrived home. Her neighbor, Campbell, 53, pharmaceutical operator, and another man had seen her drive home and were responding to the scene out of concern for her, as they had earlier seen the boyfriend acting erratically. As Campbell and the other man approached the woman’s house, Campbell carrying a ball bat, they heard her screaming. Suddenly, the woman ran out the front door, followed closely by the assailant, who was armed with a knife. The assailant set upon Campbell, stabbing him in the chest. Mortally wounded, he collapsed to the ground. As the assailant and the woman then struggled nearby, the other man took the bat and struck the assailant with it. The assailant stood and returned to the house, where he was arrested by police.
