Deanna Cook, 32
Deanna's murder has left behind 2 teenage daughters to grow up without their Mother in their lives
A woman was found dead in her southern Dallas home Sunday, two days after she called 911 to report that her husband was attacking her.
The cause of death for Deanna was pending an autopsy, but police records state she died of “homicidal violence.”
Her ex-husband, Delvecchio Patrick, was booked into the Dallas County jail on a charge of murder early Monday. His bail was set at $500,000.
According to police records, Deanna called 911 about 10:54 a.m. Friday. She could be heard screaming for her ex-husband to stop attacking her. “Delvecchio, why are you doing this?”Deanna yelled, according to police records.
“Red, please stop, I didn’t do anything to you,” she said, referring to him by his nickname.
According to police, a 911 dispatcher alerted responding officers to the severity of the situation. But when officers arrived to the home in the 9300 block of Crimnson Court near Interstate 20 and Dowdy Ferry Road and got no answer at the door or could see nothing wrong, they left the home.
Two days later, as Cook’s family grew concerned about her well-being, Deanna's Mother and Sister went to the home and found Deanna dead.
Delvecchio Patrick also has a history of domestic violence against his wife, Dallas County court records show. Authorities arrested Patrick and charged him with murder.
Deanna is survived by her two teenage daughters.
