Imperial Avenue Victims’ Families: I Feel You

The emerging Cleveland Strangler left me his calling card in the Emergency Room June 2006. Yes, a year BEFORE the Imperial Avenue tragedy 2007-2009.

For months, I got up at 5:00 a.m. Before heading off to work, I changed Vernice’s bloody gauzes. I gently applied the medicated ointment on her horrible wounds.

She refused to have her family take care of her. I voluntarily went from ex-boyfriend to caregiver. Then later to…


Later my role underwent another metamorphosis. From CD Newton to “Oliver Pope.” (See Chapter 17) Vernice’s “Gladiator” for justice and closure. Because it has evolved into a legal Cleveland Strangler “Scandal.” One that might make famed legal thriller John Grisham sit up and take note.


It’s the Law

“NO U.S. Citizen can be denied her property. Due process. Equal justice under the law.” Currently, her case is before the US Sixth Circuit of Appeals. Will she finally have her day in court?
