On July 19th, Denisha reports that she was assaulted, beaten, and strangulated by 4 other military police officers. Twenty one days later, she's found dead. The military told the family she killed herself.
Denisha reported the assault to her chain of command immediately after it occurred, but they did not investigate. They told her that since she fought back, she would just get into trouble too.
Denisha messaged her family and told them that she was just trying to keep her head down until she returned home. She even packed her bags and sent pictures of her packed bags to her family. Why would you pack your bags to come home if you were going to kill yourself?
One of the Military Police Officers that Denisha accused of beating her has been reaching out to the family in an effort to gain information. When we alerted the military of this, they did not put in any protective orders or attempt to stop this. We asked that they record the calls and investigate. They did not.
The military was also not providing the family with any updates on the case. Despite repeated requests for information on the status of the investigation, the family was ignored. It wasn’t until they went to the press did the military respond to their requests for information. We are asking that the FBI to take over this case so that this investigation is not compromised further.
