Domestic Violence comes in many shapes.  This program will demonstrate how the shapes of domestic violence may need fit together from multiple professions to solve the puzzle of the criminal acts associated with Domestic Violence.  Each profession from medical, law enforcement, legal as well as journalism will present their piece with evidence and case studies that demonstrate how each team works to investigate and uncover the evidence around these criminal acts.

Keynote speaker, Paula Reed Ward,will share her investigative journalism journey as she unfolded the facts relating to death of a local physician that was a result of domestic violence.  Other feature speakers will be local Shaler township police Chief Brian Kelly, District Attorney Mike Sullivan and toxicology expert, Dr. Michael Lynch.
