“I am at the San Francisco Trauma Hospital with my middle daughter, Jessica. She is in intensive care on life support as a result of Domestic Violence. Her body is covered with bruises, her head has large knots, & she was strangled to death. The EMT’s took three tries to get her heart beating again, she still could not breathe on her own.


She is on a respirator and has been put in a cold coma to try to restart her brain function. They will slowly warm her up while monitoring her brain. When possible they will slowly wake her to see how much damage has been done.

This is how her ‘boyfriend’ Klayton Rhoades, shows her he loves her.


He is on the run, her children are in CPS custody. I will go to court to get them on Friday. Our family is devastated, waiting to see if we will have our beautiful lady back.

We all must do more together.

We must stop this horror.


Please keep Jessica and our family in prayer. I will post updates when anything changes. Thank you all from my heart to yours.

I am sharing pictures of her to be shared with any girls who may be dealing with this or headed in this direction. She would want to show them what they are facing.

Thank you.”
