An Ohio mother has filed a Columbus wrongful death suit against Franklin County’s Sheriff Department after her daughter was strangled by her estranged boyfriend.
According to The Columbus Dispatch, the woman’s daughter reportedly called 911 three times during her attack, but because she was unable to answer the door when help arrived, the police left.
The Ohio mother said more could have been done to prevent the Columbus wrongful death incident. She said the severity of her daughter’s phone calls were not explained to the security guard who came to her daughter’s door.
Jurors elected for the Columbus wrongful death trial will have to determine if dispatchers and technicians for the county sheriff’s department were negligent in their actions.
