In October of 2017 Tishell decided that she had enough of her physically, mentally, and emotionally abusive relationship and abandon her apartment that she once shared with Mitchell. She packed all of her things and moved in with a family member. Michael called her day and night trying to plead his case and convince her that he was sorry about the cheating and abuse by sending flowers to her new place of employment (Board of Social Services). Once Michael realized that he could not repair the broken relationship the stalking increased and those around her were threatened.
On the night of the shooting, just one day shy of reaching one month of employment, Michael called Tishell begging her to help him with a flat tire. He became angry when she refused and stalked her until he found her. He shot her multiple times causing 2 broken arms, broken ribs, a punctured lung, 3 fractures in the face from pistol whipping her, several broken teeth, and a split tongue. Her chest is full of bullet fragments, a bullet is in her upper jaw, and one has traveled to her upper back.
He left her for dead that night but she SURVIVED and now comes the tough part, RECOVERY. She has a physical and mental battle to withstand and it will be costly.
We ask that you help in reaching her goal of $15,000 to aid in her recovery.
Tishell wants everyone to know that domestic violence is not ok and is not something that should be kept a secret. She wants everyone to know what she’s been through at the hands of Michael Mitchell and that although she survived, she still has a long road ahead.
