Amanda Grady Sexton, director of public affairs for the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, said specific types of domestic violence are strong indicators or future lethal events.
“What we saw in the criminal history of Mr. Bell was exactly the red flags that we know, which lead to and predict a future homicide,” she said. “The act of strangulation is a very strong indicator of lethality as well as the fact that he illegally possessed a firearm.”
Much of the coalition’s efforts take a holistic approach to support social services for families and larger systems that hold offenders accountable.
