My daughter Melissa was assaulted by her boyfriend on Oct 3, 2008(he told the police she fell in the bathroom) he let her lay there with no medical help until Oct 8, 2008. I had been trying to get ahold of her and couldn't and asked for a welfare check, she lived in North Carolina and I live in Texas. She was taken to the local hospital and then airlifted to Pitt County Memorial Hospital l in Greenville, NC . She had a brain bleed and blood clot on the right side of her head, a black eye on the left eye, her jaw was broken on the left and right side, she had a huge bruise behind her ear on the left side, bruises on her neck that looked like someone had choked her and bruises on her back, her arms , her legs and stomach. They did a craniatomy that night. After being in the hospital for a week fluid was building up on her brain so they put a drain pn the right side. She was able to talk a little at that time but she couldn't remember what happened to her. She thought her daughter who is 13 was 5 and didn't remember her other daughter at that time.

Then she developed Staphylococcal Meningitis and was given antibiotics to fight that but then she developed another type of staph infection. The doctors were telling us that she was developing alot of necrosis on her brain . Then she got klebsiella infection and that was just to much for her body because of her weakened immune system, they told us there was nothing else they could do and she went to the Lord on Dec 17, 2008.

During this time her boyfriend never once called us to check on her or went to the hospital to see her. As of this date he has still not been charged with anything. They gave him a voice stress test in Feb, 2009 and the detective said he was somewhat deceptive on some of the questions. I asked the detective if they could at least charge him with neglect for leaving her lying for six days with no medical help and he told me Well no because he fed and bathed her , I said How do you know that, because he said that. He couldn't have fed her because her jaw was broken on both sides and they had to feed her through a tube in her nose in the hospital. This man has gotten away with murder.

I wrote a letter to the District Attorney and sent it along with photos of my daughter when she was in the hospital. I have called him but he never answers his phone and I leave my name and number but he still hasn't called me back. I guess Domestic Abuse is not important to Law Enforcement in North Carolina.

I just think how unfair this all is, my daughter was 31 when she passed and she had two beautiful daughters who she will never see grow up and this man goes about his life everyday, but even if he doesn't get charged he will someday have to answer for what he did to Melissa and then she will finally have justice.

I am still finding it very hard to cope with my daughters death. I miss her so much, I keep expecting my phone to ring and she'll be o the other end, calling me to talk. I just wish she was still here.

There are no words that I can say to express my sorrow for your loss. You are not alone. As I raise my grandsons, I feel my daughter in my heart. I know she is smiling that they are in a loving home. I hope you will find peace. The wheels of justice turn slowly. But, you may yet get the vengence you seek. God bless. Lucy Carter

Thank you so much for your kind words and lighting a candle for Melissa. The medical examiner called us today and after three months they have finally finalized Melissa's autopsy, it is going to be closed head injury-undetermined. My prayers go out to you and your family at the loss of your daughter.

I am so sorry for your loss I can't imagine how hard it must be losing your daughter to domestic violence. I lost my daughter on July 4th 2009 in a atv accident, she had my 5 year old grandaughter with her i'm blessed to say she is still with us she only had scrapes and bruises but my daughter was killed instantly and i'm devastated. my heart truely goes out to you and I will pray that justice is done. I was in a abusive relationship for 8 years I was fortunate to get out of it with only a coulple scars.
thanks for lighting a candle for my daughter Tasha Barone
