In 2005, Wendy Maldonado smashed in her husband's skull with a hammer, while her 16-year-old son assisted with a hatchet. The documentary Every F—-ing Day of My Life explores what led the Maldonados to commit such gruesome acts.
The attacks on Wendy Maldonado were ferocious and brutal. Outside of what the children and neighbors describe, the Maldonado home was full of holes in the walls, holes by Aaron ramming his wife into surfaces and doors. When he was gone, she would cover the damage with pictures that the children drew.
When conversations of domestic violence surface, people tend to wonder why women don't just leave. But as is made clear in the above clip, Aaron Maldonado made it clear that if Wendy ever left, he would begin to kill her family members, one by one, until he found her or until she returned.
According to the resource guide included on the HBO site:
*On average more than three women a day are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends in the United States.
* Nearly one in four women in the United States reports experiencing violence by a current or former spouse or boyfriend at some point in her life.
* Women are much more likely than men to be victimized by a current or former intimate partner.
