About

Dominique had one sister and four children, ages 8, 9, 12, and 14. She was very involved in her childrens' lives, especially around the holidays. Her sister has said that she was very funny, loud, and outgoing. She had great respect for the police force and supported them extensively on social media.

Dominique had reportedly been romantically involved with the officer who killed her. Supposedly concerned his wife would find out about his affair, the officer broke into her house during the night and shot her in the back of the head while she slept. Her 8-year-old son discovered her dead the next morning.

Was justice served?

As of February 2021, justice has not been served. The officer who killed her has been indicted for capital murder. If convicted, he will face the death penalty or life in prison without parole. He has plead not guilty to all charges.
