A loving father loses his only child to murder. An unimaginable pain, complicated by a boyfriend with a gambling debt, then the discovery of a shocking video. Here’s the Global News podcast Crime Beat, with crime reporter Nancy Hixt.
Red Deer RCMP charge 39 year old man charged for attempted murder of 20 year old female
From Red Deer RCMP
Suspect charged for attempted murder in relation to domestic violence
Red Deer RCMP have arrested and charged an individual for attempted murder in connection to domestic violence.
On May 17, 2020, a 20-year-old female victim fled from her boyfriend’s home after being severely beaten and assaulted. The victim was able to escape the home, run to a passing vehicle and was taken to the hospital.
A 39-year-old male who is known to police is charged with attempted murder, uttering threats, damage to property and three counts of being at large on a release order, including breach of probation.
Red Deer RCMP thanks the Good Samaritan who drove the victim to the hospital.
“Acts of domestic violence are particularly disturbing and have no place in our community,” said Inspector Holly Glassford. “The team in the Domestic Violence Unit at the Red Deer RCMP works with victims to ensure they have a safe place to return to and offer additional, ongoing support services as these incidents can cause complex trauma.”
If you are a victim of domestic violence or you suspect domestic violence is happening to someone else, call the Domestic Violence Unit at 403-406-2330, or dial 9-1-1 if an emergency. More information on resources here.
Florida sheriff announces he’ll lay down the law and his video message goes viral
This video is obviously striking a cord across North America. On Monday, Sheriff Wayne Ivey of Brevard County, Florida stood in front of a home which his officers have been called to nearly 100 times over the past year. He warned the inhabitants of the home and any visitors that they’re going to getting special attention from now on. In less than 24 hours, the unique warning has been seen around the world. The video posted to facebook has been viewed over 10 million times. It has 50,000 comments and over 135,000 shares. It will be interesting to know the outcome of this situation, and perhaps even more interesting to see if other police departments follow suit. Not sure how this would go over in Canada.
