Ohmigosh BobbisAngel! That is awful! So they file the charges after the fact to cover their own butts? That is a crock of crap if I have ever seen one!!!
I am so sorry for your loss and the suffering your daughter went through!!! HUGS!Linette

Family site updated. Her name is listed as Tracy Gostomski with Tribble smaller and in parentheses.
Tracy Tribble Missing
There is a memorial service today and the service tomorrow, and they are asking that anyone that wants to send flowers instead contribute to an animal organization.
"We feel the one way to remember and honor Tracy is to donate to organizations that support and care for the animals she loved. Another way to honor Tracy is donating to the Abused Women's Shelter listed below."

They don't even have Tribble in parentheses anymore.

That's odd...it's really not there when I look. I just went there again to be sure.
It says "In Loving Memory of Tracy Gomstoski". Anybody else see it this way now? Or am I going crazy?

Thank you....this is a small town we were living in and they still haven't changed. When Battered Women and Rape Relief put on siminars to teach officers about Battered Women Syndrome no one to represent LE in that town shows! The officers in the town that my daughter was murdered in...25 miles away...does care but that is also where the Prosecutor was located. I think things are looking up there though because after the sentencing of my daughter's killer it was time for elections....Prosecutor included. My family along with another woman whose son was murdered in a "thrill kill" murder took to the newpapers and talked to a lot of people in this county and we got the Pros replaced. The new Pros's slogan was "Victims First" and he is great. I don't normally get involved in politics but that was important to me because I didn't want to see any other families treated like we were by Prosecutors who are caught up in their own arrogance and self importance and who do things behind your back like that one did. That is another story though.
I'm glad that your town does take domestic violence seriously. I have always thought that it shouldn't be left in the female's hands whether to press charges or not. It should just be done. That way the offender can't blame the female for his going to jail. One cop told my daughter that all that would happen is the ex would get picked up...fined $200 and let go! Ya, that would have helped a lot!

Interesting that they removed Tribble altogether. I remember when they first added her maiden name to reports. It was said that her family asked the media to add the name because people from her past didn't know her by Tribble. I'm assuming that perhaps they were taking time to make the transition to removing Tribble from her name totally. I don't blame them one bit. I wonder how long we're going to have to wait to see the husband charged in this one.

Includes a picture of Tracy's husband:
Daily Nonpareil - Tribble's family wants justice, not revenge
... Rev. Michael Harvey remembered Tribble as a "spitfire and a firecracker," and a good student who loved to read, watch movies and care for animals.
... A note on the funeral program titled "My Little Niece," written by Tribble's aunt, Betty Thomas, recounted many touching memories and expressed the grief the family has been feeling.
"We tried to find you, Tracy. Your uncle Steve and I tried so very hard to locate you those two and a half terrifying weeks, as did many, many friends, relatives, strangers and the police," the note said. "We will find out the truth about who is responsible for what happened to you. We will follow the legal process with dignity, for your memory, my little niece."
... Stan Tribble attended the funeral but sat in the rear of the funeral home.
During the service, Harvey said that if there is anyone in the audience being abused, it is not their fault.
"No matter what you've done, you do not deserve to be hit or verbally abused," he said. "The only way to find relief is to get out now."
"The sanctity of marriage is no excuse for abuse..."

This families grief and dignity brought tears to my eyes. I am so glad the Rev. said not to stay - that the sancity of marriage is no excuse for abuse. Every time an offender encounters LE and nothing happens - in their minds it is saying it is okay. So everytime society turns it's head it is perpetuating the abuse.

I'm also glad that Stan Tribble got to hear it.
