Corrine’s Story: Part 5
People often ask me why Brandon so viciously attacked me and murdered my son. I honestly do not know why. How can a person commit such evil and turn into a monster overnight?
People think that there were signs that he would flip the switch and become someone that I did not know, but that is untrue. Sure he had moments of anger or frustration in the six months that we dated. Still, I never saw the “typical” signs of an abuser until we moved in together. I had been in plenty of violent relationships before Brandon, and I can clearly look back and point out the obvious red flags.
I think that there are times that I try to convince myself that the signs were there all along so that I could better understand how this tragedy happened in the first place. How would I have known moving in with my boyfriend would destroy everything a week later?
I was blindsided.
I remember the look in Brandon’s eyes during these horrific moments of abuse, and his blues eyes were pitch black. I believe in my heart that Brandon was demon-possessed. I would have never thought that back then, but how can I now have a strong faith in God and not believe that demons exist. I can’t only believe some of the Bible.
In the book of Matthew and other books, there are stories of demon possession. We believe angels are among us, so why is it so hard to fathom that demons are also among us? We place our hands on a Bible in the courtroom and swear to tell the truth. Still, our criminal justice system rejects the idea that humans commit these heinous acts because they are possessed.
I am not saying that society should dismiss all evil acts committed by humanity as demon possession. However, I have experienced firsthand that demons exist, which is reality, no matter how unrealistic this idea may seem.
I have stood by the fact that Brandon was inhumane during these two and a half days. There was no reasoning, no compassion, no mercy. Instead, he turned into a monster overnight. How does that happen if not for something out of this world?
The goal of this campaign is to convince our legislators in the state of Michigan to change People v Christel to model the California law in order to bring #Justice4Women.
