Woman Comes Out Of Coma After Gunshot Wound, Police Department Rocked By What She Reveals

Waking up from a coma imposes a variety of physical and psychological stresses on the body, many people experience a gradual return of memories and ideas several days or weeks after waking up. In the case of 19-year old Jessica Boynton, her memories may be the missing piece in a crime. Mrs. Boynton awoke from a 3-week long coma after being found by her husband and two police officers, bleeding, close to death in a closet at her home in Griffin, Georgia. Mrs. Boynton, a mother to two young boys, had been shot in the head and had the weapon cradled in her arms. Mrs. Boynton’s husband, Matthew Boynton, a police officer with the Griffin Police Department, had reported that his wife had sent him a suicidal message while he was out of the house. Considering that the couple had been going through a bitter divorce and without any other leads, police considered suicide the most likely scenario.

Luckily, Mrs. Boynton was able to make a full recovery and groggily woke up from her coma with no idea of what happened. In an initial statement made to the Griffin Police Department, Mrs. Boynton reported that “she had never held her husband’s gun and had no idea how she was shot” and that she was doubtful that her husband was involved, saying: “It’s possible, but I mean it’s very doubtful, because he’s never hurt me before. I mean he might have grabbed my arm before, but I don’t think he would intentionally do anything to hurt me”. However, after it came to light that, while Mrs. Boynton was in her coma, her husband had claimed full custody of her children, the aggrieved mother reassessed what she knew about the incident.

After contemplating the course of events and consulting with her doctor, Mrs. Boynton now believes that her husband attempted to murder her and covered it up with a mock suicide attempt. To evidence this allegation, Mrs. Boynton points to the fact that her phone had no lock - anyone could send a message and there was no reason for her to commit suicide as she was just beginning to get her life back on track by separating from her husband and getting a new job. Moreover, the doctor who had taken care of Mrs. Boynton after she was found close to death, reported that there was no gunshot residue on her fingerprints and that the entry point of the gunshot wound was uncommon for a self-inflicted wound. It remains unclear whether Officer Boynton has been approached by another police department to be questioned in relation to this case.
