On this episode of the Global News podcast Crime Beat, crime reporter Nancy Hixt shares the story of Brooke Clapson and the violence that followed her.
As a child, Brooke was a ray of sunshine in her mother’s life. But there was a dark shadow of domestic abuse that loomed over their home that left scars on the young girl that she could never erase.
As a teen, the expression “you live what you learn” played out in her life after she started dating Jerime Mallette. Mallette was two years older than Brooke.
She fell victim to the same abuse she witnessed as a child. Every time she was close to leaving the relationship, her boyfriend promised he would change. If only she would give him another chance, things would be different.
Three years into the on-again-off-again relationship, Brooke finally decided that it was time for a change. She made a plan with one of her girlfriends to go to Europe. It was to be an adventure of a lifetime. Brooke moved away, got a new job and saved up for the trip overseas. That’s when the violence she escaped tragically caught up to her.
Hear details of the story that continue to haunt her family, police and the prosecutor on this episode of the Global News podcast.Crime Beat TV YouTube Channel
