    Where is the ending?
    Well hopefully she won a huge chunk of money! That cop did nothing to help her! I think he should've shot him. My son who is a deputy said he would've! Non of the people could help until the knife was gone but after that they all should've jumped on him and beat the snot outta HIM! Now I'm wondering if they let him out early or if they kept him in until 1991! I think that was the date?? But since he has such an anger problem and if he acted out in prison he wouldn't be released. They would add time onto his sentence. Well that is a shame it wasn't all in whole. Shame on you who put this video up!! 👍then 👎👎!!

    As a child, I witnessed this behaviour from my biological father for years, until I was 13 in 1985 when my parents separated, then divorced. Because of this, I am an avid supporter now of women's rights. This movie actually caused a knot in my stomach the entire time I watched it, and I couldn't stop shaking. It brought it ALLL BACK.

    35 years ago today the real Tracey Thurman was stabbed this time 35 years ago at 20.51 at night she was probably still in surgery in hospital having the damage that that physcio of a husband inflicted on her repaired. The good news is today there's a permanent restraining order against buck Thurman preventing him from ever entering Toronto's. And Tracey is living happily with her new husband that she went onto marry a few years later and that husband is 100 times the man that that animal will ever be and her son C.J is now in his middles 30s

      +Sandra Mcdaniel ...Tracey won only 2.5 million from the town of Torrington Connecticut.
      Not enough for what she went through.

      Thanks for the update on her. They didn't have the ending. Did she win a huge settlement? I hope so. Those cops were so negligent! My son is a Deputy and he would've shot the guy right then and there! Well after the baby was safe. He'd have
      asked him once for the knife to be dropped then would have shot with a firearm or repeatedly tazed him! 11

    I'm 32yrs old now and still afraid of the actor who played her husband. This was such a horrifying film to witness as a little kid.

    I remember the attack scene and I tear up, cops should have kept Buck in jail especially when he made threats to kill her AND he violated the restraining order multiple times.

    Why is this not the whole movie? I can't find it anywhere..
    Everything was so messed up back then, you can't or won't protect a woman because she is married to him? That's bullshit . Then look what happened to her. Useless cop

  • Sherry Carberg
    Sherry Carberg 2 years ago +8

    They all waited until she was in the ambulance to aprehend/arrest and handcuff the douche bag! The outcome is... she sued her town and won the case! She recieved ALOT of money and ALL officers who interracted in her case were fired without pensions! The state was also sued and the staye lost also! Tracy will NEVER be as she was but is still alive and has more money for her medical, child, home, etc.

      Sherry Carberg the police sort of helped by coming in and out of the station. It's just unfortunate that the police has to get fired.

      I remember watching this as a teenager, I'm in my 40`s now, this movie traumatized me, but it taught me to be very careful with men, to look for signs such as verbal abuse and such. I've never forgotten about Tracy, I wonder how she, and her son are doing. I remember that he once said that when he got out of jail that he was going to finish the job (kill her) I was always so scared for her, she has always been iin my prayers, I hope she is doing well.

    This really sucks!!! The whole movie has been pulled, I had to watch it in two parts. Then I had to watch a 14 minute clip of the trial which didn't include the entire result. I saw this movie years ago, so I know the outcome. If utube is going to show a movie they should show the whole movie. Anyone else have this problem?

    @onemarilynfan I wish I could say that things have improved on the domestic abuse front. But not all women are lucky. When I was being abused, the police did little to help me out. I was of the mindset that the police has changed in time, but it doesn't seem to be the case.

    Being a victim of domestic violence myself, this is one of the worst cases I have seen. I am watching the end of this movie right now on Lifetime Movie Network. Nancy did a wonderful portrayal of what happened. I wish Lifetime would make more movies with her. I agree the law did not protect this woman. The police suck. That stupid police could have "relieved himself" outside somewhere. This woman's life was in danger and in his hands.
