Standard everyday coalburner murder.
The woman murder and dumped in a Fort Worth neighborhood last week was a domestic violence victim, and now her family hopes her death draws attention to how others can escape an abusive situation.
In her final days, Kelly Lawson was in the process of getting a protective order against her ex-boyfriend, according to a Fort Worth Police Department report. The document says ex-boyfriend Jaime Brown had threatened to kill her and slashed her tires.
Fort Worth Police believe he kidnapped her on June 15.
At 2:00 a.m. the next day, she tried to get away from him at an intersection in Overtown Woods area in Fort Worth.
Police say evidence at the scene suggests she fought for her life, trying to run away. Her clothes were ripped, as if someone was forcing her to stay. Her topless body was found by neighbors when the sun came up.
