A Florida woman who was a member of the U.S. Navy and had just received a promotion to chief petty officer did not live long enough to celebrate the promotion. The woman received news of the promotion on a Friday and was found dead in her home the following Monday, possibly as a result of domestic violence. While no details were available, it was reported that she did not die from natural causes.
Child custody cases in Florida can be heartbreaking. The judge's decision is based upon what he or she deems is in the best interests of the child. In some cases that is a very clear cut decision, but in others it is not. There can be many factors that go into the child custody decision, including the safety of the child, the ability of a parent to care for the child and even the relationship between a parent and child, particularly once a child becomes old enough to voice a preference.
