Earlier in the week Clay Waller currently serving a five year federal sentence for threatening his former sister-in-law on line this past December, was finally charged with the murder of his estranged wife Jacque Waller. She has been missing since June 1, 2011, when she was lured to pick-up her son who was in another location, after she and Waller met with an attorney to finalize their divorce.
During the press conference the prosecutor Morley Swingle said they've charged Clay Waller with concealing his wife's body and concealment of a carpet from the hallway of his rental residence found about 100 miles away, with Jacque Waller's blood. The prosecutor went forward and charged Waller even though her body still has not been found. She remains a missing person.
In a laptop discovered inside her abandoned car by authorities one day later off I-55 , Jacque maintained a daily journal. In one of the entries she wrote. "He, told me that a divorce would mean my death." As in most cases of women who leave their dangerous and toxic environments they feel once gone, and away from the offender he can no longer harm her. Over time while they become stronger they also gain a false sense safety. I painfully watched my own mother do this dance once she'd finally moved out and divorced her police officer husband. My mother was no different than Jacque Waller or the thousands who have been murdered or reported missing through the years. My father had lured my mother over to the former marital home with a bogus excuse that her signature was required on a document before the real estate agent to list the house. That wasn't true. But, like Jacque, she was going one last time. And it would be where she'd take her last breath.
A victim is unable to fathom being told "love you one minute" to "I'll kill you, if you leave." They just do not believe the person with whom they once loved will take it to the extreme and kill them.
Prevention is the key for victims of domestic violence, abuse and stalking. The Scott County K9, a 501C (3) charitable organization would like to bring awareness to the community in hopes of preventing mothers, sisters and victims of domestic violence from being reported missing.
They are sponsoring events to bring awareness education and a prescription for change in the area of Intimate Partner Violence. Law enforcement, hospital staff, social workers and those who respond to victims reaching out for service's are encouraged to attend the events listed below.
I hope to see an outpouring from the community in attendance at the events while I am in town. I'm volunteering my time to train, teach and speak. It's a win-win for everyone. The Scott County K-9 Unit receives all monies collected for tickets and books sold, the community has the opportunity to learn what they can do to prevent their own loved one or co-worker from being a victim and learning the signs and hopefully prevent someone else from being killed or reported missing.
Help me help your Community to remove the Silence from Behind Closed Doors.
