" Okay let's get started. " Dan picked up his pen to begin writing.
" How long were you and Stefan married? "
" Five years. " She said, watching Dan take notes.
" What was he like throughout the marriage. " he asked looking down at the notepad.
" He was loving and caring through the first three years of our marriage. But, when I got the job at K-Star Studio, he..." Dan cut her off.
" What is K-Star Studio? "
" It's the recording studio that I worked at when I lived in California. "
" Okay continue."
" Well when I got the job at K-Star Studio, he got controlling. He became abusive. It got worse trough time. " She said, fidgeting in her seat.
" How worse? "
" Well I would have to go to these big events. Stefan refused to go with me and when I came home that night, he would go off at me. He would accuse me of having an affair, he would it me. " Rebecca said, playing with her hands.
" How bad did the beatings get? "
" Sometimes the beatings were bad enough, that he put me in the hospital. "
" Why didn't you leave him, when he first became abusive. " He asked looking up at her.
" I guess, I got was scared of what he would do to me if I left. When I did find the strength to leave him, he tracked me down and came here to get revenge. "
" Which led to him attacking you in your apartment. "
" Yes. " Rebecca said, with tears in her eyes.
" Stefan hid in my apartment until I got home. He hit me in the back of the head and I fell into unconsciousness. When I woke up, I was tied to the bed. Stefan gaged me and wrapped his hands around my neck. When he let go of my neck, he grabbed a belt off the dresser and hit me until I was covered in bruises. Then he took out a knife and stabbed me over and over again, until I fell unconscious again. " she said, with tears in her eyes.
Dan noticed the tears in her eyes and took her hand in his. It broke his heart to see her like this. He can't believe she had to go through something like this. Dan got up from his chair and wrapped his arms around her. He held her until her sobs subsided. She pulled away from him and dried her tears.
" Are we done? " She asked trying to get herself together.
" Yes, we are done. "
" Well I should go. "
" Okay, I'll see you later. "
" Okay "
Dan watched Rebecca walk out of the interrogation room, through the squad room and out the door. A that moment he felt nothing but sympathy for his best friend.
