New Details on the Alleged Murder Suicide Out of Darby

Posted: Updated:
DARBY -

Today we learned more about the victim and shooter of a murder-suicide in Darby from earlier this week.

By all appearances, Holly Schick-Lewis and Michael Buckels were a happy couple in the short four months they had dated. That was until their bodies were discovered earlier this week after what Ravalli County Sheriff's say was a murder-suicide committed by Buckles.

Documents from Ravalli County Justice Court show this was not the first domestic dispute between the two. They show Schick-Lewis filed a restraining order against Buckels on October 28th, three days after Buckles had appeared on charges of misdemeanor partner or family member assault. On November 5th, Schick-Lewis had the order dismissed and moved back in with Buckles.

Amanda Opitz, with the YWCA in Missoula, says she sees these types of cases through their domestic violence programs all the time. She tells us it usually takes more than one domestic violence incident for a person to leave the loved one abusing them and that it's important victims of abuse know resources are available across the state to turn to for help.

The YWCA has a 24-hour crisis number for victims to call and a shelter available for people trying to escape their abusers. The Montana Coalition Against Domestic Violence has resources to help people statewide, and there are a network of programs available in the Bitterroot Valley.

Opitz says if you are a victim of violence, the sooner you reach out the better, because if you don't, things result in tragedy.
