Melanie Shoop pleaded with friends, family, and other community members that if they see someone being mistreated, to speak out against domestic violence.
The pleas came during a candlelight vigil Wednesday to honor her daughter, Melissa Shoop, 31, who was fatally shot by her ex-boyfriend, John Belew, 35, early Monday, investigators say. The couple had a tumultuous relationship that Melanie Shoop said her daughter was finally ending after reoccurring abuse during their 11-year on-and-off-again relationship.
