Donna Alexander, Woman Who Created The Anger Room, Dies After Being Assaulted By Ex Boyfriend
Donna Alexander is a Dallas woman who passed away recently after being assaulted by her ex boyfriend, Nathaniel Mitchell. Alexandar, 36, was known in the Deep Ellum, Dallas area as the creator behind the Anger Room; while Mitchell, 34, was her live-in boyfriend who allegedly physically assaulted her inside of her Dallas home on September 21st. Alexander was reportedly taken to the hospital after enduring injuries, and Mitchell was taken into custody for outstanding warrants, after being questioned by authorities.
Upon questioning, Mitchell was charged with aggravated assault, but after Alexander passed away – while in the hospital – the charge was upgraded to murder. Currently, Mitchell is being held in the Tarrant County Correction Center on a $250,000 bond.
Alexander created the Anger Room as a space where people could come and let out their frustrations and stresses of life. Participants are given specifically designed equipment, along with a bat, and are allowed to destroy items like plates, television sets, microwaves, and different appliances in rooms designed to replicate a kitchen, work space, or living room.
According to Alexander’s family, the business owner created the room due to being exposed to a domestic violent relationship, previous to Mitchell. Her mother said,
He used the thing that God gave us all, his hands, that were meant to heal … and he used them as a weapon toward my child.
Her sister also added.
The fact that she ended up leaving this life with something she was against is mind-boggling.
No additional details about her death have been released. Please keep her family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
