‘I’m tired of the violence’: Mother of slain woman on hunger strike says her son’s murder ‘doesn’t change the world’
An Ohio mother of a slain woman is raising concerns about the lack of response to the fatal shooting of her son.
On Thursday, Stephanie Lee Stancil, 43, was shot dead while walking her dogs in her home on Saturday.
The man who shot and killed her is in jail.
Stancil is a mother of three, and is now demanding an end to the violence in her community, according to the Columbus Dispatch.
Stanchil is the mother of the woman whose body was found by Stancill’s husband in the back of a car after he returned from a trip in Africa on Feb. 10.
She is the first person Stancuil has publicly identified as the victim.
In her post, she shared photos of her daughter and said she has been “working hard to make sure everyone knows I love her and how much I love my little baby.”
“My life has been changed forever by the senseless act of this senseless shooter,” Stancile wrote.
“It doesn’t change our world, but it does change how we think.
We have to make a change and start making our communities safer.”
Stancile said her daughter was a loving mother and grandmother, who was a volunteer at a local church.
She said she was deeply saddened to learn of her death and that she and her family were in shock.
“It’s just very sad,” Stanchil said.
“My daughter was such a good person.
She would do anything for anybody.
We are all so blessed.”
