Domestic Violence feature by Kelly Roberts, WANE TV-15 Reporter
Domestic abuse-related homicides accounted for murder-suicides, a quadruple murder and police action shootings in 2016. Beyond that, before anyone is killed, thousands of women and their kids are looking for ways to get out of an abusive relationship.
MANY THANKS to our friends, the KIWANIS CLUB of 101 LAKES ANGOLA for gathering household products to be donated to the shelter; Household necessities for the women and children at TLC House Indiana
