Sanford Vigil Shines Light on Domestic Violence

Posted on

SANFORD – The Sanford Police Department ended Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October with a candlelight vigil.

The event, coordinated by Officer Kate Walsh, was attended by members of the Sanford Police Department, Seminole County Sherriff’s Office, State Attorney’s Office, Safe House and citizens from local and neighboring communities.

dv hotlineA_182xDuring the vigil, guest speaker Dohmeher described the nearly fatal attack from her ex-boyfriend, who stabbed her 32 times because she was breaking up with him.

“He said he just wanted a hug,” she recalled. “It’s all he wanted … a final goodbye. All he wanted was closure and I basically, you know, walked outside to my murder.”

Dohmeher’s story has been featured on “Good Morning America,” “48 Hours,” and in the “National Enquirer.”

Please report domestic violence to your local law enforcement agency or call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 (SAFE).
