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."
