I met a business owner last week in Rockwall who told me the sad story of how her teenage daughter was “date-raped” last year at a teen party in Heath.
Since two weeks went by before her daughter told her about the tragedy, there was no evidence. However, this business owner said that when she reported the incident to the police, she was told that this type of thing happens nearly every weekend in Heath, but that people there are so affluent that they pay people off to keep it quiet!
If true, this would be a bombshell!
I called my friend with the Rockwall County Sheriff’s Office and asked what she knew about it. She’s the child abuse/sex crimes investigator there. She said she’d never heard that before but, if true, we’d better do something quickly to bring an end to it.
I’ll be seeing the business owner again this week and will ask for some more details. She’s currently considering joining our community efforts to prevent dating violence in Rockwall and would be a great asset.
