Kasandra Perkins and possibly ten other women died at the hands of their partner on December 1, 2012 (4000 women killed by partners/year divided by 365 days/year = 10.96 dead women per day). Yet today, Internet news sources remember Kasandra Perkin’s boyfriend, the man who killed her before killing himself, and the jest of the commentary is, “We didn’t see this coming. He was such a great guy!” Typical.
Newsday reported “Friends of Perkins have said there was tension between the two that escalated after the birth of their daughter, now 3 months old, and a police source said the two argued about money.” Abuse escalates or begins after the abuser feels that the victim cannot separate from them. For example, after the birth of a baby.
