‘Medical Emergency’

Christmas Eve about 7:40 pm 911 got a call requesting help for a ‘medical emergency’. “When police arrived on scene, they determined it was something more than a medical emergency.”

When they arrived they found Renee Farnsworth, 33, dead inside the home. A later autopsy revealed she had been strangled.

An investigation revealed that Renee Farnsworth and her husband Thomas Farnsworth were involved in a physical altercation earlier.

The couple had reportedly been married since 1996 and had no children. Police say they had not been called to the home in the previous year.

Thomas Farnsworth has been charged with one count of murder.

    I knew Renee personally. We were e-mailing and speaking to each other just a few hours before this happened. I am still in shock that this could happen to such a bright and sweet girl. She didn’t deserve what happened to her.

    Renee – We all miss you and hope you are in a happier place.
