This video aired on 20/20 and documents the abuse Susan Still endured for well over a decade at the hands of her husband, Ulner Lee Still. Worse than the abuse — verbal and eventually physical — their three children witnessed the violence first-hand. Their thirteen year old son was even made to video tape an incident. Susan Still did leave Ulner Lee when she realized that he could very well kill her. And yes, this man was sentenced to prison by a judge who obviously felt his crimes against her and the children were so heinous, that a long sentence was deemed more appropriate.
Due to the graphic nature of this video, I do NOT suggest anyone currently in an abusive situation or fresh out of one watch this video. While not graphic in the sense of containing gore, it carries an extremely high risk of trigger, because the segment shows ACTUAL FOOTAGE of Susan’s abuse.
