In 2012, 53 women were killed by men in Tennessee.
The average victim was 40 years old.
She was white, but 21 of her fellow victims were black.
She was most likely to have been shot with a gun by a man she knew. In fact, none of the 53 women were killed by strangers. She was romantically involved with him at the time of her murder, or she had been at one time. Her murder was probably the result of an argument.
In Tennessee, it’s a familiar tale.
