Trent Paschal is a man from La Marque, Texas, who is charged with the shooting death of his wife of 30 years, Savannah Paschal. He was later shot by a Harris County sheriff’s deputy after fleeing the scene of his wife’s murder, police said.
Before he was shot, Paschal recorded a video apology for his daughter and her parents, which you can see later in this article. In it, a crying Pascual claims that he found out that his wife was cheating on him and repeatedly tries to paint himself as the victim.
She was the mother of two and worked at a local funeral home, according to social media posts.

Paschal Recorded a Video Apology to His Daughter
In a chilling video that is still available on YouTube, Paschal looks at the camera and blames his wife for his own death.
“I’m filming this because I want my daughter to know that I love you, Mackenzie Paschal. I am very sorry I did this. I want you to know that you mean everything to me. And William, I love you too. I love you so much. I love you as if you were mine. I did not choose this. Your mom chose this, ”he says in the video.
“She’s been cheating on me for a long time. I have an audio of her talking to other guys. I didn’t do anything wrong to her. When we first got together. I told her you’re too young for me. There’s an 18-year difference in our ages and knew he was too young, but … he’s been playing with me. ”

I told him not to mess with me, not to mess with my emotions, not to play with me. I got an audio in which I was calling a guy yesterday on his way to get his eyelashes done. She said hi baby and he said hi, and I say that’s not my voice, why is he calling someone else baby ?, and then she started talking about a dream she had with him about sex. I put everything in this relationship. I haven’t done anything to your mom. I never hit her, never hurt her, never insulted her. A couple of times when I got really mad. I’d say a bad word or something. But I did everything I could. I have done nothing wrong. I like why me. My hair is a mess and I look horrible. Oh sorry, take this off (took off a pair of glasses). I love you Mackenzie. I love you so much. Please do something good with your life. Please do something really good. Because you deserve a good life. I do not know what else to say. I am so sorry, I have no better words at the moment.
At that moment, she declared crying, before continuing:
It hurts me a lot. I do not know what else to do. I did nothing wrong for her. I gave her what I could, did what I could for her. … I’ve treated you well and done good things for all of you. I do not know what else to say. I love you Mackenzie. I love you so much. Do something good with your life. Make me proud. Make me very proud. And mom I love you. You’ve been the angle my whole life. You always answered the phone for me. I’ve never done anything … my mind is everywhere, I can’t focus right now. I don’t … anyway mom, I love you so much. You are my Angel. i love you You mean everything to me. And dad, you’ve done everything for me too. You have loved me as yourself.
Savannah Paschal Worked in a Funeral Home & Recently Shared a Post About Helping Domestic Violence Victims
One woman told a very different story. Darinae Ivey wrote on Facebook that Savannah worked at a funeral home and was trying to raise money to help victims of domestic violence.
Savannah’s most recent October Facebook post was a fundraiser for a domestic violence shelter. “At work, we are partnering with Bay Area Turning Point to collect items for women and children fleeing domestic violence. We are a drop off location (7 days a week from 8 AM to 5 PM) Or it can be them for me and I’ll drive them to work. Now until October 25! ” she wrote.
“Please honor this victim of DV. She worked at a funeral home and was trying to raise money and donations for other DV survivors. Her estranged husband murdered her and ran away, ”she wrote.
“Agents located him in Houston and when he approached him, he pulled out a gun and the agent shot him, eliminating the problem. But now her children are orphans. All because he couldn’t just let her go. ”
She added that the group hoped “to help keep her memory alive. Let’s honor her.
