YVETTE SMITH: DEAD AFTER CALLING COPS FOR HELP





"On Feb. 16, [2014] deputies were called to a home on Zimmerman Avenue just after midnight for reports of two men fighting over a weapon. Witnesses who were inside the house at the time said the woman called 911 and told the dispatcher the fight was over money, not a gun.
