911 Call Reveals Last Moments of Woman's Life 3/8/13
DALLAS - A 911 call reveals the frantic final minutes of a Dallas
woman's life as she pleads with her attacker not to harm her.
The tape obtained Wednesday by WFAA-TV (http://bit.ly/109vB17 ) reveals
32-year-old Deanna Cook never spoke with a 911 dispatcher but can be heard in
the background begging for her life.
Dallas police have declined to release the tape since the Aug. 17 murder of
Cook. A copy was leaked to WFAA.
The urgency of the call was not relayed to police by the dispatcher. It
wasn't until two days later that police forced entry into Cook's home after
receiving a call from her family.
Her death prompted new procedures in responding to domestic disturbance
Cook's former husband, Delvecchio Patrick, remains in custody on a murder
