Navy Chief Petty Officer Andrea L. Washington, a mother of three who had just received her senior enlisted rank, was found dead in her home the very same day she was scheduled to appear in court against her alleged abuser.
Washington, 37, had filed for a temporary order of protection against her live-in boyfriend on September 4 after he allegedly knocked down the door of her bedroom, kicked her in the stomach multiple times and put a gun to her face and threatened to kill her.
She was granted a temporary order and was to appear in court on September 17 to obtain a permanent restraining order.
Her alleged abuser showed up for the court hearing. Andrea did not. She was later discovered deceased in her home and her death is being investigated as a homicide.
But, here’s where it goes from bad to worse…
No one – not even the alleged abuser has been questioned or taken into custody for Navy Chief Petty Officer Andrea L. Washington’s death.
Apparently, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office and the State Attorney’s Office are volleying the responsibility of the case (and securing an arrest warrant) back and forth and neither one of them is getting anything done!
No arrests have been made, a person of interest hasn’t been named and Andrea’s cause of death has not been released.
Watch the news report below.
Ms. Washington and her family deserve justice!
