"Destiny's Law" Mom Among Bethel Twp. Flooding Victims
BETHEL TWP.-- Randi Shepherd and her daughter Destiny lost everything when their apartment at Laynecrest Manor was destroyed in a flash flood. They were evacuated with about 100 other people, but their story is slightly different.
"Everything I worked for is completely ruined," said Randi while sitting on her mother's front porch, her temporary home.
"I had two file cabinets full of nothing but important documents on Destiny. Hospital stuff, but all of that is completely gone."
When Destiny was 16 months old she suffered severe bran damage after being shaken by Randi's then boyfriend Terrence King. King was sentenced to prison time, and Randi has been pushing for a state law that would create harsher punishments for the crime. She testified about it at the Statehouse in Columbus in January.
"Now we have to start over which is not easy," she said sifting through the few items left sitting on her condemned apartment floor.
The flood took medical and legal records.
"Hospital stay stuff like cards and pictures. Not going to get those back. Like a lot of the pictures were before she got hurt, so I don't have those anymore," Randi said.
The single mom has decided not to show Destiny what their home looks like post-flood.
"I don't think she would understand," she said.
Currently, Randi is working to get new copies of the medical records, but she needs clothing, toys, and a car to get to and from work.
Like so many others, she says her insurance won't cover all the damages.
"It just put a lot of pressure on me because we have this flood, and I have this law, and then in a couple months he gets out of prison," Randi said.
