SHALER, PA – It’s not certain whether or not Michael Heinl and his wife were having marital problems before it happened, but after learning his wife was part of the January 6th incursion at the U.S. Capitol, this Pennsylvania police officer has since filed for divorce.

Shaler Police Officer Michael Heinl was put in a bad situation after his wife Jennifer did not heed his warning and traveled to Washington, D.C. on January 6th.

After she was arrested through an FBI investigation that provided evidence that she attended and was inside the U.S. Capitol building during the insurrection, he realized she was there with another man.

In criminal filings, the FBI associated Mrs. Heinl with Kenneth Grayson, of Bridgeville. The couple was caught in close quarters inside the Capitol Rotunda.

In reviewing social media messages between Heinl and Grayson, the FBI learned that they discussed going to D.C., renting cars and booking hotel rooms.


Detective Heinl has now filed for a divorce. The Police department said he did not attend the rally and was on duty working on January 6th. Mrs. Heinl and Grayson did not travel together or stay in the same room, the FBI concluded, but it was enough for officer Heinl to call it off.
