Deanna Patrick - Dallas, Texas

Deanna Patrick, age 32, was murdered in Dallas, Texas, on August 17, 2012. 

Her maiden name was Deanna Cook. 

Her body was found on August 19, 2012, in the bathtub of her residence. 

Delvecchio Patrick, age 35, her ex-husband, has been arrested and charged with her murder. He has a prior history of alleged domestic violence against his wife. 

On August 17, 2012, Deanna called 911 (the Police Emergency Number) from her cell phone. It took time for police officials to determine what address the call was coming from. 

After obtaining an address, the dispatcher gave the call to the first available police field element. The officers that received the call arrived at the location and knocked at the door. When no one answered, they requested a call-back of the caller which went to voicemail. They also checked the perimeter windows of the home and spoke with neighbors who reported that they had not heard any disturbance. Then they left the scene. 

Angels of God, pray for Deanna
Records show that Deanna called the Police at 10:54 a.m. This was not a drunken call in the middle of the night. She could be heard screaming "Delvecchio, why are you doing this?....please stop, I didn't do anything to you."

Deanna's family, two days later, who were concerned about her, went to her home and found her dead. 

The bloggers of this website are in support of the Police and Police support workers such as 911 emergency operators. However....we are confused about this tragedy.  

If it is 11:00 in the morning and a woman calls the emergency line screaming into the phone, is there no sense of urgency conveyed to the responding officers? And then when the responding officers can't get access into the residence, they leave? 

God help us. How much screaming does one person have to do to get help?

God save us from the husbands and wives who said they loved us and then kill us. 

Let us pray that Deanna is in heaven. Let us pray that she is at peace and is with God. Amen.
