Battery victim recalls harrowing ordeal

July 15, 2012 • Local News

Beverly Moore, the victim of a brutal beating for which her roommate has been charged, spoke of her harrowing ordeal, Wednesday, for the first time since she was rescued by a neighbor in April.

Around 8:30 a.m. on April 30, the Roswell Police Department responded to a call made by the neighbor after she broke into the apartment, in the 200 block of West Matthews Street, and found her friend savagely beaten. RPD spokesman Sgt. Jim Preston said at the time it was the worst case he had ever seen.

Her roommate, Patricia Kanmore, is charged with holding Moorecaptive and restrained for four days without food or water.

“I had known her for years and I had heard about her temper, but it just came out of the blue. I asked her if she could go to the bank for me … she had done it in the past, and all hell broke loose,” Moore said.

    The roommate beat this woman and it’s not considered domestic violence? he agencies agencies that are refusing to help her need to be visited by a reporter and find out why.

    I always thought that “Domestic Violence” law meant a person with whom you have resided. It did not necessarily have to be a spouse, or a child, but only someone who you have lived with. Battery on a household member for instance, what about that law? Isn’t that also domestic violence? I believe that with the violence shown to this victim, the DA’s office would charge the perpitrator with every charge that is on the NM law books. This is outrageous.

    wow!! and they wonder why more and more people keep getting away with crap like this!!! come’on NM Laws!!!! Make a stand for this woman, she obviously DID have a domestic violence issue in the home with broken jaw, being tied down, scars…. ect…. and you don’t consider that DV? What’s wrong with the big picture here? She can’t even live her life as before, she is going to have a hard time finding work now with her disabilities. NM Laws need to be revised and changed before more cases like this happen and more people end up 6 ft under!!!! CRAZY!!!!
