DALLAS - A Dallas 911 operator has resigned after serving a suspension for mishandling an emergency call from a woman later found slain.
The family of Deanna Cook learned Tuesday that Tonitya Hopkins resigned this week.
Police Chief David Brown suspended Hopkins for 10 days and ordered her reassigned after investigators determined she didn't log critical information on the Aug. 17 call for help from Cook. The victim reported she was being attacked by her ex-husband.
Brown on Sept. 5 fired 911 operator Angelia Herod-Graham after investigators determined she didn't log information from Cook's family when they reported her missing Aug. 19. Relatives then went to Cook's home and discovered her body.
Cook's former husband, Delvecchio Patrick, remains in custody on a murder charge in her death.
