Angela Brower said it was love at first sight when she first met Walter Bradley, but before long, she had suffered a broken nose, broken facial bone and bruises at the hands of Bradley.
Now though, she’s escaped the relationship and is speaking out against domestic violence on social media. On top of that, she’s trying to help other victims of domestic violence out of abusive relationships like hers.
Her ex-boyfriend Bradley is in a Tennessee jail facing assault charges, but Brower says their relationship seemed picture-perfect at the beginning. As the love-at-first-sight feeling evaporated though, Bradley beat her on three separate occasions.
“(He) put my face through a wall … choked me until I was almost unconscious,” she recounted.
Each time, Brower took pictures of herself after the abuse. Now that they’ve broken up, she posted the pictures to Facebook for all to see.
She’s also looking for new ways to help victims of domestic violence like her and giving them a support system to overcome abuse. Currently, her and a few friends are trying to open a stand-alone center to help domestic abuse victims in her native Tipton County.
