Megan Merkel, Woman Who Killed Teacher Before Telling World To "Suck A ___," Now Blames "Retard" Ex-Boyfriend For Deadly Wreck

The shit-bag on the left is Megan Merkel. That pipe she's holding is a hookah, which is more often than not used to smoke weed. This photo was posted on Facebook. Smooth move, Merkel.

Some people just don't know when to shut their stupid mouths. Megan Merkel, 23, the Upstate woman who (allegedly) drunkenly killed a teacher in a tragic car wreck over the weekend, certainly fits that mold.

On Sunday, just hours after killing 40-year-old teacher Heather Boyum -- a mother of two children -- who was riding her bike on the shoulder of the road Merkel and her boyfriend were barreling down after admittedly drinking all night, Merkel took to Facebook to let the world know that if you blame her for Boyum's death you can "suck a dick and choke on it."

Merkel continued her classless reaction to killing a young mother by appearing on a Rochester radio station yesterday, where she explains the accident by saying her ex-boyfriend Mark Scerbo was to blame because he was "being a retard" and recklessly passing the car she was driving on his motorcycle and popping wheelies before running down Boyum.

Police say Scerbo -- who was released from prison (where he served time for, wait for it... DWI) just days before the wreck -- was repeatedly passing Merkel's car to do wheelies on his bike as the two barreled down Route 250 in Penfield, a suburb of Rochester, about 7:45 a.m. Sunday.

Also on Route 250 Sunday morning was 40-year-old Boyum -- a mother of two children -- who was riding her bike on the shoulder of the road.

As Scerbo again passed Merkel to do yet another wheelie, he hit Boyum, throwing her from her bike. Then Merkel ran her over -- before fleeing the scene.

Scerbo was taken to a local hospital, where he's getting treated for "serious injuries." Boyum was taken to the same hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Megan Merkel: a class act.


Just to reiterate, Merkel and her ex-boyfriend were allegedly drunk at 7:45 in the morning. Additionally, she has children -- of whom she thankfully does not have custody. For reasons she can't explain, at 23, Merkel has no job -- when asked if there was a reason for her lack of employment, the twerp tells the radio station "no...not at all."

As one of the hosts points out in the interview, the pictures on Facebook of Merkel doing bong hits probably isn't helping her employment situation.

The radio hosts asked Merkel whether she's reached out to Boyum's family to offer her condolences. She responds by saying "no...I don't know how to do it."

Well, posting something like "Just want to offer my condolences to the family of Heather Boyum" on Facebook might be a start. Merkel, however, went with "suck a dick and choke on it."

Heather Boyum's funeral was today, and Megan Merkel will spend tonight in jail.

She has been formally charged with vehicular manslaughter, DWI, and inadequate brakes. Choke on that.

 @Disgusted How that "retarded boyfriend" is also charged.  People like these cause accidents every single week, if not every single day, right here in this city alone....

Plus, new reports confirm she did stay at the scene. More reason this columnist is an idiot.

 This guy told it like it is. It isn't his fault your sister is a piece of Crap. Hope she gets 25 years in prison and then dies on her last day. Ha, that's what your piece of Crap sister deserves. Your parents should have done a better job at raising Kids.

You attacked this girl for both smoking pot and being unemployed like those things separate or in conjunction make one an awful human being. When did the Voice become conservative? Seriously that's the kind of crap the cesspools like Breitbart attach to articles when they want to demonize and individual. The fact that she committed a hit and run and told people to chock on cock when they got made over it was enough to confirm her shit bag status. You didnt need to be Tucker Carlson also.

 @SAUL Most morons smoke pot.  I'm far-left myself (no, not the 9/11-conspiracy type of far-left, though) but most sane people understand that drugs can mess with their minds and most sane people do not want to mess with their minds.

 

Yes, alcohol and tobacco are drugs, too -- as is caffeine, et cetera....

 

In any case, this woman is clearly white trash and weed-smoking is a major sign of this demographic.

Bongs are for weed, Hookahs are for shisha...correct the article.

 @tknight_69 awful things happen to good individuals daily. Columnist have an obligation to report things as accurately as possible. Stating that hookahs are primarily used for smoking weed is false. Its unnecessary commentary considering they were drunk and not high. My condolences to the victim but accuracy must always be scrutinized. Be an adult and stop playing to your emotions considering you problem felt only a moments worth of sorrow for the victim. Dismount that gigantic horse your on chief....

While I think this woman is an idiot fool, I take great issue with the caption under the picture that states hookahs are used to smoke weed moreso than tobacco.  This is not true and needs to be edited or removed from the article.The primary purpose of a hookah is to smoke a tobacco product that's coated in a tasty, slow burning molasses.  Smoking weed in your hookah is the best way to ruin them and ensure you never have an enjoyable hookah experience again.Please correct your caption.  Thank you.

No doubt this girl is an idiot, but the caption under the photo is asinine. 'More often than not' hookahs are used to smoke pot? How about 'known for being used' to smoke pot. People smoke tobacco out of hookahs more often than weed, it's not a bong.

Finding it a bit odd that the Voice would make an issue out of someone smoking pot and hold that up as a way to show her lack of character. The fact that she committed a hit and run while drunk and told everyone to suck a dick should have sufficed.

 @Jack Whoa, whoa, whoa -- we take no issue with whether she smokes pot.  However, my issue is with her being dumb enough to post these kinds of pictures on Facebook.

 @JamesKing The fact you have to explain your post reflects how poorly written it is. An experienced journalist knows that in cases such as this, when the facts alone are stunning, the name-calling and presumptions ("shit-bag,"  guessing at what was going on in the pic, etc. ) has the opposite intended effect - sympathy for the perp. The Voice was once a proud paper with smart writers who appreciated the drama of understatement, and real reporting. This is grade school scribbling.

 @JerriJackson  @JamesKing Yes, I started feeling sorry for this woman, too -- but she is indeed clearly a shit-bag and I don't think this piece is a traditional article as just another blog-styled stream-of-consciousness post.

What's with the unsubstantiated claim of her smoking pot in the photo? She might be a spoiled and selfish brat, but insinuating a "character flaw" based on an ambiguous-at-best photo (and ridiculous caption) is lazy and sensationalist, and I'm just wondering why you felt the need (and right) to attack her with fabricated controversy.

 

"Megan killed a woman, and she's not sorry about it at all! In fact, here's a photo of her smoking pot!!!"

 @JamesKing This has nothing to do about pot. Don't turn a young kids accident into a rally against smoking pot. Hookahs are RARELY used for smoking pot, they are made for smoking shisha which is tobacco. The odds of her actually smoking pot out of that pipe would be about the same if she were holding a can of soda and having the subtitle saying something like "She must be drinking that soda can to use it for smoking pot". Also, it doesn't matter what pics she posts on her page. There is nothing bad in the picture. Don't attack people for bullshit reasons. Not everyone that smokes pot is a "stoner". I take medical marijuana because there is nothing else I can take that will help me. Does that make me a stoner? I never did any drugs. Instead of going to college I joined the Army right out of High School and was sent into combat that same year. It was 2003, the invasion of Iraq just started, and I was 18 yrs old. I survived it, went home and went to college. Now just like 15 million other people in this country, I am also unemployed. I went to private school for high school, I served my country in this "War on Terror", I went to a private university for college. Yet no jobs. I smoke medical marijuana to keep myself from really hurting ignorant people like you. So before you ALL go and judge this young girl on a picture that means nothing and says nothing you should check your own self involved life and understand that terrible things happen everyday. Believe me ... I have nightmares all the time from the fucked up things I've seen. Im sure most of you have drunk alcohol and drove but you were lucky. This could have happened to anyone of you. Everyone needs to pull their head out of their own asses and see the things that go on in this country. Stop reiterating what you hear on the news and read in the paper. Make your own views or don't voice them.

 @ScrewYou So let me get this straight, you're willing give this person a pass? She's allegedly committed a serious crime and someone died. She seems to have little or no remorse. Which is the sign of a sociopath. You then use this time to go on about your own life as some way to justify driving while intoxicated. As if your messed up life is worth more than an innocent persons. Get help and stop felling so sorry for yourself.

  How did I expect a writer who bases his career on insulting people to accept any kind of critique? I'm sorry if criticism of your pointless caption dented the armor of smug moral superiority you wear in every article, but your writing has been nothing more than bullying lately, picking on easy targets that must be stupid because you don't agree with them. I guess it's a lot easier than journalism.

 @Xenophilius I've written about King's smug attitude before myself, but I people who drive like this are clearly shit-bags and there's really no massaging the facts -- or how we react to those facts, those of us who have to contend with these types of motorists, anyway, whether as fellow drivers or bicyclists or even as pedestrians out for a stroll.

You know, I regret the anger in my response. Obviously, I've been reading this stuff, and there's a part of me that enjoys these stories - call it human nature or the American spirit of spite, but I see the headline, click on it knowing full well what to expect, then feel like a piece of shit for getting pleasure from the mistakes and punishment of others. Like ScrewYou said, everyone does stupid things, but most of us get away with it. When you insulted me, I wanted to respond with every cruel thing I could think of, but realized that I'm the same kind of anonymous, screen-camouflaged jerk  as anyone else who types a comment with the intent of walking away with a moral or logical victory. But there's no victory in this, and I just feel shittier because I find myself still caring, and still thinking of how to win against my "adversary." It's a stupid waste of time, because we're not really arguing with people. Here we're just constructs, and it doesn't matter what any of us says.

 

You're a decent writer James, but a bit callous and reactionary. I trust you won't care what I say, but I think I understand Megan's reaction to the media coverage a bit better. I wanted to tell you to suck a dick just for one little insult, but imagine hundreds or thousands of people attacking you non-stop for an event that you are still trying to understand. She's not a public figure used to this kind of pressure, and even for the most experienced people the kind of attacks and commentary you get from the internet media is unprecedented. I hope she comes to terms with her actions, and tries to make amends with the children of the victim. Those are the people we should be worrying about
