The Facts:(from NCDAV)
- “16,800 homicides (that are reported) attributed to intimate partner homicide per year, 2.2 million medically treated injuries costing $37 BILLION per year.
- The cost of intimate partner violence exceeds $5.8 billion dollars each year; $4.1 billion of which is for medical and mental health services.”
- Almost one-third of female homicide victims that are reported in police records are killed by an intimate partner.
- Intimate partner violence results in more than 18.5 million mental health care visits each year.
- To significantly reduce the number of homicides and missing persons per year by providing cutting edge technology and vital knowledge that will first give potential victims a fighting chance, a strong voice, provide valuable non-reputable evidence that will aid in any investigations, eventual conviction, overruling “hearsay” laws, in the worst case scenarios and provide a powerful deterrent against would-be attackers
- To significantly reduce the costs incurred by law enforcement, the justice system and health care services, including insurance claims, each costing taxpayers annually.
People and organizations all across the country have participated in events surrounding October’s National Domestic Violence Awareness Month; however, domestic violence did not stop on October 31. Intimate partner violence, resulting in some of the most horrendous stories in the news, continues 365 days a year.
The list of recent cases making headlines, Stacy Peterson, Kathleen Savio, Jacquie Waller, and Susan Cox Powell, to name only a few, continue to take place at an alarming rate. These women are all presumably dead, leaving behind several children who will never know them, creating an underlying population of further victims who need ongoing services.
The statistics will change when this new application of the Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit©, currently available in the book or CD, Time’s Up: A Guide on How to Safely Leave an Abusive and Stalking Relationship, is presented to victims of abuse, as well as investigating agencies, the legal community, mental health and hospitals, and advocates. Along with passage of the Intimate Partner Harm Reduction Act, the available procedures will prove to be a means of prevention and successful prosecution of one of America’s most underreported, yet deadliest, crimes.
Nationally recognized Intimate Partner Specialist, Susan Murphy Milano, and Chet Hosmer of WetStone Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of Allen Corporation of America are partnering to enhance the application with newly created technologies that will revolutionize the way cases of intimate partner violence are handled at every level. The technology will be unveiled nationally October 31 at the Techno-Forensic Conference in Myrtle Beach, SC. http://www.techno-forensics.com/
Murphy Milano and Hosmer, along with a panel, including Legal Analyst and Attorney, Holly Hughes, and CEO of The Institute for Relational Harm Reduction and Public Pathology Education, Sandra L. Brown, MA and law enforcement communities will be available following the panel discussion to speak to members of the press and available for individual interviews.

Although I am a fun person, this time around, I’d rather be viewing this conference via satellite rather than putting on a Halloween costume any day of the week!
Can you “beam it up, Scottie” to those of us attending another event on the ocean, perhaps? After all… it is a Tech Conference… If not, send us lots of info after the fact, please! We want to be part of the new Revolution too!
My warmest wishes and congratulations to all of you for this great achievement!!!
