UPDATE: Leslie County Sheriff Deputy Sam Mullins told CNN the Facebook photo had nothing to do with the woman receiving help. He said a call was made to 911 in which dispatch heard screaming in the background and something about a gun before the line went dead. Later a second call, from the husband, came in. He said he’d beaten his wife and that she needed help, Mullins said. The woman did post a photo of herself on Facebook asking for help, but Mullins said no one called police as a result of the photo.

LESLIE COUNTY, KY (WKYT) – A woman says Facebook helped save her life.

Susann Stacy says her husband left her badly beaten at their Leslie County home. So to get help, she posted an urgent plea on her Facebook page.

Stacy posted a picture of her face with the words, “Help please anyone.”

“Several lacerations to the head. They appeared to be bad but we really couldn’t tell at the time, due to her hair was matted to her, and the blood,” Leslie County Sheriff’s Deputy Sam Mullins said of Stacy’s injuries.

Stacy reported to the Leslie County Sheriff’s Office that her husband heard her in the bathroom on the phone with another man. She says he confronted her, and beat her with a handgun. She said he ripped the phone line out, leaving her with no way to call 911.

To make matters worse, she had no cell reception, but she did have WiFi. So Stacy turned to social media for help.

When deputies arrived, they say Stacy’s husband, Donnie Stacy, had left the house. Deputies soon found him, and arrested him nearby.

Deputies say they later found the handgun used in the attack near a tire swing the couple’s son uses.

      Vicky, you are mentally ill if you think it’s okay for a man to beat a woman. If you continue that mindset, everything you touch will fail.

      Wow. It comes along with the cheating? Who said she was cheating, you can’t assume that “he heard her talking to another man on the phone in the bathroom” means she was cheating. She could have been talking business or casually to a male friend. But let’s say she was cheating. You think it’s easy to just say I’m done get up and leave from an abusive partner (with children in the picture). Not every case is the same but no matter the case no one should be beaten whether they were “cheating” or not.

      I could be wrong, but I’m assuming “Vicky” is a woman. I am extremely disturbed that you would think it is acceptable for a man to beat a woman because she is cheating. It makes me wonder what type of home you grew up in or how your were raised/what you saw growing up. Are you currently in an abusive relationship yourself and have internalized feelings of inferiority?

      Let me say this very clearly.

      The only time it is ever okay to lay your hands on someone, regardless of gender, is in a life-or death situation. NO ONE has the right to beat you just because you do something they don’t agree with, or whatever else BS excuse.

      I strongly suggest you seek counseling yourself about why you hold these views. And if you are indeed in an abusive relationship, you don’t deserve it, and should reach out to someone for help before it’s literally too late (like in the case of many domestic abuse victims).

      @Vicky No one deserves to be assaulted like that. Have you lost your mind?? You should be ashamed of yourself.

  • Andreana

    @stench That’s still no reason to beat her up. A person should just leave. Hell screaming and hollering would have been acceptable if she were cheating, but no one should lay hands on another person unless they are clergy and are doing so to bless you.

    • stench

      If married you have reasonable expectation not to be cheated on considering she takes everything YOU worked for in divorce.Don’t really agree with hitting wqomen unless they hit you then even if you can restrain her but a lot of men can’t do that.I see how it could get out of control.this came up because dsdhe was being sneaky.can’t blame the man for being angry.

      • athynz

        Angry I can understand. Tempted to hit I get. Pistol whipping the woman… no, just no. Honestly what kind of”man” pistol whips a woman? Is he that weak where he is unable to use his hands? Hitting a woman is simply unacceptable – using a pistol or other object makes him even less of a man.

  • Shocked&disgusted

    Talking to another man or not, she did not deserve to be touched!!! Leave her if she cheats but no one has the right to lay a hand on anyone! Shame on you people that said otherwise! You people are sick to think she got what comes along with cheating! And who knows who or what they were even talking about! I have male friends and don’t cheat! SMDH at all the stupid in the world today!!

    Vicky. ..it was Jake, from State farm. Wearing his kacki pants. She was trying to save the money on his car insurance.

    Seriously though he should have asked or like any real man trust until proven otherwise.

  • Jennifer

    No wonder she was on the phone with another man. She has a husband that beats her probably more than just that one time.i think I would be lookin for a new man too …I hate a man that beats a woman ..low down

    • PuddinandTane

      It’s some dude that she went to college with that SUPPOSEDLY lives in Florida (The smart money says he lives within driving distance.) And this woman is pissed.. (So is the guy she’s cheating with.) because her husband is putting a big part of money that he works for into a bank account that these two can’t get their grubby hands on. (The turkey she is banging on the side is making remarks on a Huffington Post blog.)

      The guy shouldn’t have beaten her though, just grabbed her up and kicked her in her *** as she went out the door.

      • athynz

        Dude could be a troll – like Abraham Lincoln said you can’t believe everything you read on the internet.

  • Ellen Shaver

    This is why Mental health issues HAVE to be addressed by our so called FEARLESS Leadership here in the state of Virginia .

  • Matt

    There are three things that will prevent this(or any) abuser from
    attacking again: distance,incarceration,or death.She needs to secure her home,and carry a gun at all times.Apologies by an abuser are simply a trick to get you to let your guard down.

  • Rachel Hackett

    I don’t see how this story makes since. She didn’t have service but yet she had a WIFI connection? And she had to of haf enough service to send a pic to Facebook.. even with a disconnected phone you can call 911. If that was the case…

    • PuddinandTane

      @Rachel… If you step in it, and it looks like it, and it smells like it.. I wouldn’t think I’d have to taste it to know what it is.

      That’s what this story is…….

  • Romaine Cheney

    I can’t believe anyone would condone beating a woman like this. (ahem, Stench!! I’m assuming someone named Vicky did too but her comment is gone from what I can see.) First, we don’t know who this man was that she was on the phone with. She refers to another man but not in what context or if the man could be her boss, father, friend. Not every man that a woman talks to is about cheating. BTW, if her husband would beat her like that, I’d say she doesn’t have a winner at home.
