Studies show that 75 percent of domestic violence homicides happen when the victim attempts to leave the relationship. These numbers make for hard decisions — victims questioning what’s on the other side of “It’s over. I’m leaving.”

In this episode of “The Missing Peace,” we take a look at the increased danger that comes with saying goodbye.
