Torres: Sheriff's Office Takes Aim at Strangulation

John A. Torres - Florida Today

And then, after seven years of marriage it had started to manifest physically. One day, she found herself pushed up against the bathroom wall with her husband's hand gripped tightly around her neck, gasping for air.

"I struggled and tried to get him to stop but he didn't, not until he wanted to," said the recently divorced mother, who asked that FLORIDA TODAY not identify her to protect her from her ex-husband. "A little tighter and I would have been a goner."

She went to the police, hoping they would warn him. And like many women in similar circumstances became even more fearful when she was told by police that they were going to arrest him.

Woman Speaks About Domestic Violence

Madison Wade - KRCR News

 

REDDING, Calif. - Tara Bay, who survived being strangled by her boyfriend 12 years ago, spoke in front of a packed room during a strangulation prevention training hosted by One Safe Place and the National Family Justice Center Alliance.

Bay relived her experience and told the crowd how she survived, recanting the process of healing, telling people she leaned on family for support. She said as she walked into the room on Wednesday, she felt an overwhelming sense of joy and support.

"It's very empowering to feel like you have gone through something very traumatic and horrific and to be able to come out the other side of that, as someone who's strong and independent and is now providing help towards people who are trying to be there for other people is incredibly, incredibly powerful," Bay said.

Cameras See More Than Skin Deep
Carolyn Lange - West Central Tribune


WILLMAR –– Like a relationship that looks OK on the outside but is deeply troubled under the surface, the physical bruises of victims of domestic violence may also be difficult to see.

Without evidence of abuse, perpetrators can go uncharged and victims remain at risk.

But a new camera that is able to detect below-the-surface bruises, as well as the presence of bodily fluids, could help law enforcement get evidence for domestic abuse and sexual assault cases.
