  • Boiling Water Horror

Suzanne Thomas, a 32 year old woman, entered into a relationship with a man known as Jason.  When they were initially dating, things were great, and both were very happy with their relationship.  In 2013, Suzanne invited Jason to move into her house.  This decision did not turn out as good as she though it would.  They began to fight and bicker more than they would talk.  Soon, during one of their arguments, Jason had shoved Suzanne into a wall, smashing her head into a wall, and simply said “Sorry Suzanne” and promised to never do anything like that again.  Suzanne was constantly living in fear and asked Jason to move out.  Jason complied and packed a bag, and said he’d come back later for the rest of his stuff.  Suzanne went out with her friends that evening, and when she returned late that evening, Jason was waiting for her.  He forced himself into her house at knifepoint, where he then proceeded to  stomp on her head and face until she lost consciousness.  When Suzanne woke back up, Jason was standing over her with a kettle of boiling water and proceeded to pour it onto Suzanne.  Jason then attempted to pour a second kettle but was interrupted when police busted through the door.
