(BlackMediaScoop) A woman was found dead in her home two days after she made a distressed 911 call saying she was being attacked by her husband.
The body of 32 year old Deanna Patrick, was discovered in her bathtub on Sunday evening, two days after she called police from her cell phone. Husband Delvecchio Patrick, 35, has been charged with murder, according to the Dallas Police Department.
He was booked into county jail and bail set at $500,000. Authorities said they were reviewing the call that Mrs. Patrick made to police from her Texas home shortly before 11pm.
According to cops, she can be heard screaming: ‘Delvecchio, why are you doing this?’ Later she said: ‘Red, please stop, I didn’t do anything to you.’ The name Red is reportedly her husband’s nickname.
A statement on Dallas PD’s Facebook page said the circumstances of the woman’s death were under investigation. The 911 responder did not originally know the woman’s address because the call was made from a cell phone -when it was finally worked out, officers were sent to the address.
The whole process took nine minutes, according to authorities. A police officer knocked on the door but no one answered. Cops called Mrs. Patrick’s phone but it went straight to voicemail.
Officers checked around the property and asked neighbors if they had heard anything suspicious. After a short time they left.
Mrs. Patrick’s body was discovered two days later after family members became concerned for her well-being and went to check on her.
Police were investigating whether Mrs. Patrick’s call for help was responded to properly and thoroughly. Delvecchio allegedly has a history of domestic violence.
