DPD releases timeline of woman's death after getting criticism

Posted: Updated:

The Dallas Police Department has released a timeline in response to complaints that it took too long for officers to act after receiving a 911 call about a missing woman.

That woman, D'Lisa Kelley, was later found beaten and strangled to death.  

In the timeline, police say on March 7, Kelley's grandmother called 911 about two and a half hours after Kelley's sister received a disturbing, unintentional phone call from her and heard a man in the background yelling at Kelley.

Within a half hour after that call, Dallas police contacted Kelley's cell phone provider to get the location of her phone, but the provider said the location could not be determined.

The police timeline also says someone reported seeing Kelley in a business on March 12.

Kelley's body was found in an abandoned house in Oak Cliff on March 14.

The community activist group Justice Seekers Texas has claimed on behalf of Kelley's family that Dallas police did not do enough or soon enough and did not try to trace the phone right away.
