Family members say Dallas police should have done more to help a woman who called 911 for help and was found dead two days later.
The murder happened at Deanna Patrick's house in south Dallas.
Police confirm they received a 911 call from her cellphone Friday. It took them nine minutes to figure out where she was calling from.
Officers went to the house. But when Patrick didn't answer they left.
Family members said that wasn't enough.
"In my personal opinion, I don't think they cared enough. I think they had already given up. Seen it was useless and didn't think it was worth their time or effort," said Valecia Battle, the victim's sister.
Dallas police said they are conducting an internal investigation to determine whether the nature of the call was sufficiently communicated to the responding officers and whether those officers' response was appropriate for the situation.
Patrick's husband, 35-year-old Delvecchio Patrick, has been arrested and charged with her murder.
