TILL DEATH DO US PART
Post & Courier Exposé on the Murderously Silent Epidemic of Domestic Violence
Winner of the the American Bar Association's Silver Gavel Award
More than 300 WOMEN were SHOT, STABBED, STRANGLED, BEATEN, BLUDGEONED or BURNED TO DEATH over the past decade by men in South Carolina, DYING AT THE RATE OF ONE WOMAN EVERY 12 DAYS while the state does little to stem the carnage from domestic abuse.
More than THREE TIMES as many women have died here at the hands of current or former lovers than the number of Palmetto State soldiers killed in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars combined.
