Suspect In Slayings Found Dead

Friends and neighbors told KXLY that the victim is Rebecca Schiering, owner of the Reclothery, a consignment store in Downtown Spokane.A close family friend said that Schiering moved out of DeMeerleer’s home and into the home on N. Ella about 6 months ago because DeMeerleer was abusive to one of her 9-year-old twin sons.That same friend said Schiering overcame a drug addiction and turned her life around, determined to make a better life for her three sons/KXLY.

Question: Have you watched helplessly while a friend of family member got involved in an abusive relationship? How can you help women who are caught in such a tangle?
