The sad father of a woman murdered by her husband of a millionaire racehorse breeder says his daughter wanted him to help other victims of domestic violence.
In September 2009, Helen Meads was shot by her father Greg Meads by her father in the house they shared together in Matamata on New Zealand's North Island – a few days after she had the courage to tell him that they were having their 12-year marriage terminated.
Meads, who mentally and physically abused Ms Meads for years, was sentenced to a minimum of 11 years behind bars in March 2011 for the callous killing of his wife.

Mrs.'s father Meads, David White, has since devoted his life to trying to prevent other women from undergoing the same brutal and premature death as his daughter, Stuff.co.nz reported.
The 75-year-old, who has publicly told for seven years about the tragic story of his daughter's death in an attempt to combat domestic violence, says Mrs. Meads wanted him to help other women.
& # 39; If you had known Helena, you would understand that if I had not done anything, she would probably have come down and kicked me in the wanderer and said, "Come on, there is another Helen there, do something about it ", & # 39; said Mr White's publication.
& # 39; And she's right, there are so many families like mine who don't recognize what family damage is and certainly don't see the ripples after the violence of it all.

Mr. White (photo right) said the best way to deal with the problem was to speak and help people in the community
& # 39; The biggest killer in this country is our own silence. We just don't talk and we certainly don't listen, & he said.
Mr White, who spoke at around 130 events, said the best way to deal with the domestic violence issue was to speak out and help people in the community.
He said his own conversations & # 39; powerful & # 39; had been because he took it out of & # 39; his own bat & # 39; had met and spoke for his own account.
Mr. White has been approached by strangers who need help because he started telling about his daughter's story.

He said as he traveled for various conversations. He was approached by a woman who gave him a hug and told him that he had helped her daughter.
Foreigners also sent letters to his home addressed to: & # 39; Helen Mead & # 39; s Dad, Matamata, & # 39; to ask for help.
He had also spoken to prisoners who had had & # 39; light bulb & # 39; moments and promised to change their way after hearing him speak.
Although Mr White, who has tried to retire four times before, plans to give up his job, he says he still wants to do so much.
He said that & # 39; the top of the list & # 39; was writing a sequel to a family history book he had written a few years ago.
