Don’t underestimate a simple note, we don’t the real story behind it. Just like what happened in the southeast, Tennessee that turns into a “Life Saver Note.”
According to CBS reports in Knoxville, Sweetwater police Sgt. Kevin Franco has responded to a call from a gas station along Highway 68 in Monroe County in southeast Tennessee after an employee had found a disturbing note inside the restroom.
The note read: “Police… Tell room 218. I need help. He broke my cell phone.”
After checking nearby hotels to find a possible victim based on the room number mentioned in the note, eventually, officers have finally found a man, woman, and child inside a room at one of the hotels.
Franco said, “We tried to get there as fast as we could and her nose was bloody, bruising on her chin, bruising on the top of her head. You can tell she had been a victim of some type of assault.”
The woman who left the note has told police officers that her boyfriend had beaten her several times that day.
The boyfriend was arrested for simple domestic assault.
Franco, the brave immediate police officer credited the note with possibly saving the woman’s life, observing the situation officers were inserting themselves into was potentially dangerous.
“We didn’t know if he was armed or if he was the one who put the note there, and We never go to a domestic violence call alone, because that’s how dangerous it is,” Franco added.
A few days before this incident happened, a Middle Tennessee sheriff’s deputy was shot and killed attempting to save a woman from her suspected abuser.
The U.S. Department of Justice studies officer deaths and catalogs which calls are the deadliest.
The most recent report indicates that from 2010 to 2016, some 40 percent of calls that ended with police fatalities were related to domestic violence.
The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund has confirmed that Twenty-eight officers were shot and killed in the first half of 2021.
This case can be similarly compared to Gabrielle “Gabby” Petito case.
Domestic violence could be the worst thing that could happen to a relationship.
