On Wednesday, officers were called to an apartment on Brewster Drive for a disturbance. After knocking on the apartment door several times with no answer, officers were told by a neighbor that yelling and the slamming of doors could be heard earlier, according to the report. Officers went around the back of the apartment and found a woman, covered in blood, coming over the balcony railing. She said, "Help me! I'm dead!"

When officers got to her, she told them Vanderhyde would kill her. The woman was treated by EMS.
