Jo'Anna Bird

Bird, 24, was stabbed to death in a New Cassel home by her ex-boyfriend, Leonardo Valdez-Cruz. An internal Nassau Police Department investigation later found that at least seven Nassau officers, including a patrol supervisor, failed to properly investigate at least four domestic violence incidents in the days before her murder.

After reading the confidential Bird investigation, the late Nassau County lawmaker Peter Schmitt told News 12 Long Island that 22 police officers "ought to be ashamed to look at themselves in the mirror every morning."

Bird's family agreed to a $7.7 million settlement with the county in March 2012. The department has refused Newsday's requests to make its Bird investigation public.
