The story goes on to say “Victims of domestic violence often hide their abuse from family, friends and the police. But it’s the leading cause of homicides in affluent Fairfax County, according to a new report released this week.
The Fairfax County review of domestic violence-related homicides also found the following:
• 63 percent of the domestic violence deaths involved guns;
• 38 percent involved stalking prior to the homicide;
• 25 percent of the homicide victims also were victims of domestic violence in previous relationships;
• 75 percent of the perpetrators were men;
• 40 was the average age of the victims;
• 45 was the average age of the offenders;
• 50 percent of the homicide victims expressed beliefs their partners had the capability to kill them;
• 50 percent of the offenders threatened to kill the victims before the homicides;”
If you are in the domestic violence situation one of the best things you can do to protect yourself is to use a powerful pepper spray to disable an assailant long enough for you to get away.
We recommend one that’s on a keychain like this Wildfire Pepper Spray.
