I am typing this post in response to a death that occurred close to home this weekend. My daughter who moved back home was hit hard by this death because she worked with the woman who was brutally beaten and died. Apparently this lady has been coming to work with black eyes and when confronted says they were moving and a trunk fell on her head. Believable right. She showed up to work with bruises on her arms, legs, throat and chest. She even showed up with cigarette burns on her body. It is an unfortunate side effect of a mental disease called battered woman syndrome. My daughter is full of love and felt for her. She tried to get this woman to open her eyes and get help but to no avail. The neighbors had to have heard all the times she was beaten and noone did a thing. When the hell did this become ok to not step in and help someone in need in an apartment complex with the thinnest walls in the universe? Someone finally stepped in after all this time by calling the police but it was too late. They found her badly beaten body in the corner of the apartment, lifeless, bloody and bruised. They took the boyfriend into custody, he lives, she died a day later in the hospital. Manslaughter in the first degree is the charge the chicken Sh!t DA is proposing for this guy. I am outraged at this and want to personally help this guy into a shallow grave. She was 43, was. She had a son, HAD. Help came to late and I am hurt by this. Where and when will this end. I don't have the answers to these questions but want to say if you know of anyone going through the same thing, GET them help. I heard the song, Alyssa Lies, shortly after hearing the news and said a prayer. At least she is with the good lord where she can no longer be hurt, her chains have been shed and she is loved. That's all she ever wanted and I hope she finds peace in the Great Fathers arms. Sorry for the rant but needed to get that off my chest. May the Lord protect all those women and children who cant protect themselves.
