What Happened...

In 2005, Bill and Michele Mitchell lost their only daughter Kristin, then 21, when her boyfriend stabbed her in a fit of rage three weeks after she graduated from Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia.

Kristin MitchellWomen ages 16 to 24 experience the highest rate of dating violence - almost three times the national average - according to the Bureau of Justice. "Domestic violence doesn't have a face or an age," says Bill Mitchell. "It can happen to anybody."

Since Kristin's death, the Kristin Mitchell Foundation has supported educational efforts that raise awareness about the dangers of abusive dating relationships. The Mitchells have also lobbied for a Maryland law that requires mandatory domestic violence education in middle and high schools.
