The numbers aren't looking good.
Last year, victims' advocate Heather Barnes investigated 215 domestic violence complaints. This year, she has already investigated 296 ... and that's only through the end of September.
There were 273 days from January through September, which means that there has been more than one a day.
Like we said, the numbers aren't looking good.
And that's sad.
October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a time when officials try their best to get the word out that it doesn't have to be this way.
