Stabbing Victim Comments on Safety at Crest Lake Park

Melissa Dohme, who was brutally attacked by her ex-boyfriend near Clearwater's Crest Lake Park, comments on safety at the park in light of the Jason Paul stabbing.

Melissa Dohme, who was brutally attacked by her ex-boyfriend near Crest Lake Park, recently shared her thoughts on safety at the park in light of the Jason Paul stabbing.

Some residents in the Skycrest neighborhood are disturbed and scared since Paul was stabbed to death near the park Jan. 6 on his way home from work.

A Skycrest Neighbors Association meeting to discuss potential programming, events and improvements at Crest Lake Park is at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29, at Trinity Presbyterian Church, 2001 Rainbow Drive.

Dohme shared her thoughts in a Facebook comment regarding a Clearwater Patch story about safety at Crest Lake Park:

Melissa Dohme: "The park isn't the reason for the stabbings. I was attacked and stabbed by my ex boyfriend by there which has NOTHING TO DO with Crest Lake. I live next to the park and would have happened anywhere I lived, even if it was in the "nicest" neighborhood. It's a beautiful park in the day time but as they say nothing good happens after dark. My heart absolutely breaks for Jason and his family but the situations are different and I don't feel the park should have a bad reputation. Coming from the girl it happened to I believe it to be true."
