Here, There and Everywhere

Women Like Amber

Dear Gabriel,

amberhs_200pxOur beautiful 36-year-old daughter Amber Schinault was a victim of domestic violence in Maryland. Amber was first assaulted by her boyfriend with his car on June 1st, 2012, where she had three fingers partially amputated. On June 7th, 2012, Amber with both hands bandaged from her operation, stood before a judge and obtained a restraining order against him. Our daughter was the most loving and kind individual.

After living with us for 50 days while in recovery, Amber went back home on July 19th, 2012, because she missed her four rescued dogs so much. On July 22, her ex-boyfriend broke into her house, waited for her to get home, and then murdered her. The restraining order had no effect because he was determined.

We started a petition in memory of Amber to help other victims of domestic violence like her. Will you sign it?

In 2010, a bill was presented to start a program for a GPS tracking device to notify law enforcement officials and the victim whenever a violator enters a restricted area. Since then, this bill has been in limbo in Maryland. Our goal is to notify the legislation just how important this program is not only in Maryland, but for the entire U.S.

If Amber’s ex-boyfriend had a GPS tracker in place to alert authorities when he entered areas near her, Amber still might be alive today.

Please help us make a difference and save women like Amber in the future.

Thank you for taking action,

Amber’s Family
