Jefferson Police Department officers recently responded to complaints of a man threatening to kill his daughter on Soaring Ln. After an investigation, responding officers and Department of Family and Children Services workers dismissed the allegations.

The daughter said the father recently grabbed her by the neck and told her he would kill her by banging her head in if she gave her mother a bad attitude. The mother confirmed the daughter’s story.

The man denied the allegations and said he hugged his daughter and gave her $100 for her and the mother to use. The man’s son confirmed the man’s story and said the mother was outside when the incident occurred. The daughter started changing her story when told what the man and the son said.

A DFACS case worker met with the parties separately and reportedly agreed with the Jefferson PD officer that there wasn’t much to the allegations.
