Undetected domestic violence leads to woman's death

Victims of domestic violence often find it challenging to come forward to make an accusation or get help. Abusers may use subtle tactics to gain control of someone else, though often the violence is more obvious, like with physical abuse. In California, a woman was recently a victim of physical domestic violence, and she was ultimately killed without her neighbors or friends knowing what was happening right under their noses.

Early Sunday morning on August 17 in San Luis Obispo County, deputies of the Sheriff's Department found a 26-year-old woman dead in her apartment. The deputies were responding to a call about a domestic dispute, though most of the neighbors reported not hearing any screaming or fighting coming from the apartment. It was reported that the woman died from multiple knife wounds.

A 27-year-old man was also in the apartment when police arrived. He had self-inflicted knife wounds. He was taken to a nearby hospital in serious condition. He was also arrested under suspicion of murdering the woman, who was his wife.

In this California domestic violence case, the victim will never have a chance to defend or protect herself. It is hard for anyone else to know what is happening behind closed doors of a relationship, to know if there is abuse or violence, if the victim does not speak out. Victims of domestic violence do not have to protect his or her abusive partner. Experienced lawyers can work with victims to get a restraining order or even assist in getting the abuser behind bars.
