Here is an original idea for the police academy in St. Petersburg where Kelly Rothwell was training to be a law enforcement officer, allow those in her class to immediately go out into the field and investigate her disappearance? Take a real life situation of a missing and abducted person out from the classroom and apply it in the field for Kelly Rothwell. It is the very least everyone can do.
Headline's in the news such as "we are not cleaning up her desk" is wasting valuable investigation time. As I wrote a few days ago time and evidence are vanishing (see list below).
Kelly was going back to the home she shared with Perry on Saturday to inform him it was over. She was moving out and on with her life. That is the last time anyone has heard from her. Perry was the last person to see her alive. According to law enforcement, this coward fled to New York, he refuses to cooperate with authorities, playing the offender's game of "catch me if you can." In my opinion, law enforcement must not waste precious time they need to consider the following:
I cannot stress enough, if you are in a relationship that has a history of violence, simply mustering up the courage to confront the person and say it is over, without the proper tools, can cost you, your life!
One of the major reasons women stay in abusive relationships is fear. They are afraid of what will happen to them and their children if they leave. Sadly, their fears are often justified; statistics show that a woman is at the greatest risk for injury when sheannounces her plans or leaves an abusive relationship.
The book "Time's Up A Guide on How To Survive and Abusive and Stalking Relationship" is the prescription, if you will, that every person must obtain before they announce they are leaving. Below is an example from Chapter 4, one of many unique tools provided in the book. It is available on Amazon.com, or you can purchase via e-book or on a cd.
