Cardboard silhouettes lined the second floor of the Russell House on the USC campus Tuesday as South Carolina's Sexual Assault and Violence Intervention and Prevention program hosted the "Silent Witness Project".

Lindsay Deely spoke on behalf of her cousin who was killed due to domestic violence.

"He came in and bashed her head against the wall and she died from the trauma," said Deely.

Stories were displayed on each silhouette telling the direct and indirect experiences of the victims.

The project served as a warning for people to understand that domestic violence is common within our state. South Carolina is currently ranked 9th in the nation for domestic violence.
