This past summer, Kelsie Skillen, 19, was beaten by her boyfriend, James McCourt, 19 in Glasgow, Scotland. Kelsie, a makeup artist, shared pictures of her injuries on Facebook. McCourt had locked her in the house and beat on her for four hours. Why did he do this you ask?
The couple had just returned home, and McCourt didn’t have his jacket or cigarettes. They had gotten left behind, so he got angry, blamed Kelsie and then beat her for it.
Kelsie managed to escape when McCourt went to the bathroom. She used her iPad to call her mom.
