A 32-year-old Dallas woman was found dead in her bathtub 2 days after calling 911 for help, according to published reports. Police arrested Deanna Cook Patrick's ex-husband, Delvecchio Patrick, 35, and charged him with murder.

The Dallas police department is conducting an internal investigation into the handling of Ms. Cook's 911 call on Friday, Aug. 17.

According to police records, Cook, who dialed 911 from her cell phone, could be heard screaming for her ex-husband to stop attacking her. "Delvecchio, why are you doing this?" she yelled.

"Red, please stop, I didn't do anything to you," she said, referring to Patrick by his nickname.

It took police 9 minutes to locate Cook's address because she called from a cell phone. Officers were dispatched to Cook's south Dallas residence but there was no response to knocks on the door, the Dallas Police Department wrote on its Facebook page on Monday.

Police also interviewed Cook's neighbors who said they heard no disturbance from Ms. Cook's residence.

Delvecchio Patrick (right) was booked into the Dallas County jail on Sunday. His bail was set at $500,000. Patrick has a history of assaulting Cook.

He was arrested 3 times for attacking her, and he pleaded guilty to all 3 assault charges.

In the hours before she died, Deanna Cook -- who used the Twitter name @DivaSexyDallas -- tweeted that her ex-husband threatened to kill her.

"Wouldn't be so bad if he ain't tried 3 times before, But I'm Gods Child ain't never scared," she tweeted on August 17 -- the same day she was murdered.

In another tweet dated April 9, Cook wrote "I just found out my Down Low X Husband Lovers name!! Wat a SOUR PUSS..."

      That is terrible. So police just walk away when folks don't answer the door after they are being attacked during a 911 call huh? I'm sure she was very angry to find out her ex-hubby was on the low, but since they weren't together anymore she needed to leave him alone rather than putting his business in the street.

      And let me clean that up. I don't mean to imply that she deserves to die for putting her business in the street. I'm saying down low brothas are dangerous in more ways than one. As DL dudes they are already going to great lengths to protect their sexuality. There's no telling what they are capable of doing if they are outted involuntarily.

      What made them finally go back 2 days later? Did her family and friends try to put in a missing persons report and the PD say, oh shyt?

      My friend and I got into a domestic situation with a drunk relative of a friend. He attempted to punch out my car window and he body slammed her. When he physically assaulted her, she pressed charges. Once we all went to court the judge had the whole courtroom laughing at the situation. He asked if they were a couple, which they both denied. He went on saying "oh you are just lovers and you are just going to get back together, just kiss and make up." He then dropped the charges.

      I was ABSOLUTELY FLOORED at how lightly the justice system takes domestic violence. I mean the judge had everybody rolling and I'm like WTF!!!

      RIP Sis

      Had she gotten a restraining order and let the cops know that when she called they would have reason to break down the door. But she didnt have a restraining order. Ladies it is okay to put your faith in God but please please know a man like that ain't working with or for God so get that Restraining order and don't let that man in your home.

    • sassyshe

      Such a sad story however people dont understand that a restraining order is just a piece of paper that half the times the police cant find in their system. Honestly more people get protection from their TPO due to the agencies that are contracted to help them and not really from the police. I could tell you why they didnt respond - if he attacked her three times then more than likely she went back to him so the way the cops looked at it was just as @Nhere described they looked at it as though shes acting in the moment but will go back and some lazy arse didnt feel like doing paperwork that night. Its sad but working with the system I know how the process goes. This is why reality personnel need to stop playing the DV card cause this is the reality of it

    • pointhimout

      albeit sad, a hot ghetto mess. He got the pic on his FB page of whatever is filed when you file for divorce. He/she filed way back in June 2006. He's a self proclaimed "blood gangster." A mess, this entire situation.

      In reading her tweets, I had to click several of the celeb pages and expand because you'd get the impression she knows them or was having a conversation with them.

      Um, RIP. from his FB page: Favorite Quotations "Never put naan bitch before your kids" Um, we can't sit and act like omg, so sad, omg. she knew who and what she was dealing with before they married and definitely before she was killed. sad, but people who know her shouldn't be surprised. If he's truly a gang member and she started saying she know who his lover is, the story tells itself. They'd beat or kill him if that were proven to be true.

      I've gotten so much better with taking the emotions out of hearing any story. Yes, it's horrible that it happen and not deserving by any means, but I'm not surprised at all.

    • SummerBaby

      This is heartbreaking. Our communities have to do better to inform domestic violence victims of their rights. We as women have to do our background investigations on men before we date them. We then need to trust the information we find out regarding them instead of the sweet talking words of an abuser.
      RIP Sista

    • Ms. Everything

      Point I actually agree with you there, she knew who and what he was and I'm sure her family and friends knew just like she did BUT you always think it won't happen to you... until it does. I can remember many times doing stuff in the moment and pissed off never thinking that the ninja would snap. And I wouldn't be surprised if it comes out that he didn't mean to kill her but went too damn far this one time and that was that.

      Horrible story though and somebody needs to pay for what they allowed to happen because of negligence

    • http://www.philly.com/ J Said it!

      damnnnn! I tel my friend time and time again... she goes thru the same crap with her on again and off again dude.. truthfully these women really believe these men are not gonna kill them,

      I dont know what possess women to think that way.. Anybody is capable of killing depending on the circumstances including freak accidents but women please take heed! theres no need to give power to a person that prove to you 3 times (or 1) before that they will F you UP

      Free I'm late on this but yesterday you asked if it was wrong with me leaving my husband and not telling him exactly where I took the kids and this story is the answer to that question. Plus he knows the kids are in good hands with me and he wasn't involved anyway. It's not like I ripped them from his life, fled and refused to keep in contact. He knows how to reach me, he knows how to check in with his children, he knows how they're doing if he cared to find out, he just doesn't know where to find me and that's the way it'll remain until he gets sober and right in the head
