Domestic Violence Victim Uses Facebook To Save Her Life


An eastern Kentucky woman says Facebook helped save her life, after she posted a bloody picture of herself following a brutal pistol-whipping by her husband, Raw Story reported.

Susann Stacy said the incident began when her husband, Donnie Stacy, confronted her about a conversation she had on the phone.  When Susann failed to respond to his questions, Donnie began to assault her with the handgun.

Susann said her husband then pulled out the phone line leaving her with no way to call 911 and no reception on her phone.

However, with some quick thinking, Stacy used the WiFi in her house to turn to social media for help.  Stacy posted a confronting ‘selfie’ with the words, “Help please anyone," prompting many of her friends who saw the image to call 911.

A short time after, deputies arrived on the scene and found the handgun near their son's tire swing in the backyard.  Donnie had left the house but deputies soon caught up with him nearby and arrested him.

Leslie County Sheriff’s Deputy Sam Mullins said Susann suffered “several lacerations to the head. They appeared to be bad but we really couldn’t tell at the time, due to (the fact) her hair was matted to her, and the blood,” WKYT-TV reported.
