Response to onehandle (Original post)

11. Tragic. She tried to leave him in public because she was frightened.

She knew she was dead if she tried to leave him on the privacy of their own home. Unfortunately, he killed her and their child anyway.

I know the fear that she felt.

My ex-husband threatened to kill me and my family when I told him I did not love him anymore. He immediately pursued me on a high speed car chase. He tried to run me off of a steep, hilly winding road at over 70 MPH. I escaped (I hid out with friends way out in the country after spending a few nights in my car) only to have him stalk me for almost three months, during which time he terrorized my friends and assaulted one of my co-workers (sending him to the hospital.) He was finally arrested (I had a restraining order and was trying to have divorce papers served on him) and was finally served with the divorce papers.

Long story short, this highly educated, professional computer scientist with upper middle class, millionaire family members (in the 1980s) was a crazy, controlling abuser. His family refused to believe that their brother/son could be like this. After he proceeded to rant in court, the judge told him to shut up and sit down. Then the judge made my ex's brother (an attorney himself) personally responsible for the ex's actions. I finally got the divorce. The ex still threatened me for the next several years. 6 years after the divorce, he called me out of the blue. I told him to never call me again and hung up. He never called again. Good riddance.

If my ex had had a gun, i probably would not have escaped. He was that crazy.
