Case study of an abused Montreal women and its tragic conclusion
Jillian was devastated. She blamed herself for being stupid enough to trust this man. She couldn’t believe that she could find herself loving a cold blooded murderer. She blamed herself for not alerting the police about his aggressive behaviour when they were together. She blamed herself for the death of that innocent young boy; even though she had no control over his behaviour or any way of knowing he would kill somebody.
She did what all abused women do – she took responsibility for the error of this man’s ways.
As for Angie and I, we did what any friend would do. We supported, loved, and helped her, through the healing process.
After Jillian graduated from Concordia University with her bachelors in Fine Arts, she moved back to British Columbia, not to Red Deer, Alberta where her parents still lived, but to Chilliwack, B.C. We lost contact after that. I miss her so much. I hope she is doing well.
The aforementioned case study is all true only the names and background places have been changed to protect the real Jillian.
