As the murder of Amy Alexandria Gibson continues to shock regional and national audiences, Gibson’s close friend is anything but surprised. “We knew she was going to die,” said Kristi Peterson, a friend of Gibson since middle school. “I literally said ‘if you don’t make it, I will spend the rest of my life making sure your truth is told.’” There was a history of police involvement and domestic violence between Gibson, who went by Alex, and her husband, Jeremy, who shot her multiple times on the evening of July 29. Just after midnight on May 29, 2019, Jeremy Gibson called Dawson County Sheriff’s Office to report that he had just been the victim of domestic abuse. Alex was arrested by Sgt. Larry Busher and charged with family violence.
