Donna Alexander was committed to advocating against domestic violence. She’d developed a positive name for herself with the creation of the Anger Room in Dallas, TX. Ironically, the facility is a place to turn to when they’re plagued with depression, anxiety, and other personal battles that often take a toll on people. She focused on helping people overcome problems that may seem insurmountable. Sadly, she became a victim of the very fate she fought to save so many others from.
According to People magazine, Donna Alexander was found beaten to death and her estranged ex-boyfriend, 34-year-old Nathaniel Mitchell, is behind bars.
Attacked In Her Own Home:
On September 21, Donna Alexander reportedly passed away as a result of being brutally assaulted by her estranged ex-boyfriend, Nathaniel Mitchell. It has been reported that Mitchell attacked Alexander in her Grand Prairie, TX home.
Following the attack, Alexander was rushed to the ER at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, TX with severe head injuries. There, she was placed on life support. Days later, on Sept. 24, she was taken off life support and succumbed to her injuries.
To make matters worse, Mitchell actually accompanied her when she was rushed to the hospital. When she was examined, the medical staff contacted the Grand Prairie Police Department. Upon arrival, Mitchell was questioned about his ex-girlfriend’s injuries, and “gave inconsistent statements,” according to FOX4. He was immediately arrested for outstanding warrants and later charged with aggravated assault for Alexander’s injuries. When she passed away, his charges were upgraded to murder.
A Life Cut Short:
In the past, Alexander spoke publicly about the Anger Room and it’s purpose, which was to provide “an alternative to seeing a ‘head doctor’ or talking it out when you’re having a bad day.”
The facility, which opened in 2008, focused solely on creating a positive atmosphere for those suffering. During an interview with The Dallas Morning News, Alexander discussed the Anger Room and the purpose she hoped it would serve.
“I always wanted to be able to relate to what people are angry about,” Alexander said in a 2016 interview with the publication. “Most people have stress from work or home-related issues.”
The site’s website also offers a detailed description of what people can expect when visiting.
“The Anger Room facility is a place where you can let your hair down, gear up and destroy real-life mocked rooms that simulate an actual workplace, living area or kitchen— complete with glass, mannequins, TVs, tables and many, many more breakable items,” the website explains.“It might sound crazy at first, but we assure you once you’ve tried this method of stress relief, nothing else will compare!”
Mourning A Special Soul:
People all over the world are now mourning the death of Donna Alexander. During an interview with FOX4, Real Housewives of Dallas star D’Andra Simmons shared her reaction to Alexander’s untimely death describing her as “such a good soul and a nice person.”
Simmons added, “You remember people like that in your life. When I found out what happened to her I had no idea, which is quite often the story.”
Alexander leaves behind two children – a daughter and son. Before her life was cut terribly short, she aspired to expand the Anger Room to Richardson, Texas and Oak Grove, Kentucky.
