An Intense Personal Account Of Shondell Williamson’s Domestic Abuse



After 10 years of suffering abuse from her husband, Shondell Williamson decided to walk away with her two sons.

Her husband, Alfred De Younge, who did not want to let go, attacked her with acid, which burnt away her nose, eyes and upper body. Disguised as a woman, Alfred gained access into where she was staying at her friend’s house in Amsterdam.

While attacking her, he told her that if he couldn’t have her, no one would.

After many weeks in the hospital, she is still suffering from the pains of the attack.

Reflecting on her abusive marriage, she said,

I want to encourage that person to get out of it fast, even to the first hit, don’t think it will stop there, it will continue. Like I did, I was staying and saying it was tough but it led to this. Just don’t stay any longer. Just get out of it fast.
