Although they had broken up, Drew Carey is devastated after Amie Harwick’s death

The couple got engaged in 2018. However, they called off their engagement in November of the same year. Amie Harwick was a renowned couple and sex therapist. Despite their breakup, Drew Carey and Amie Harwick stayed close friends. After her death, Drew Carey said:

β€œAmie and I had a love that people are lucky to have once in a lifetime.”

Sadly, a domestic violence act caused Amie Harwick’s death

According to the police reports, an ex-boyfriend, Gareth Pursehouse, attacked Amie Harwick and tried to strangle her. During the attack, Harwick fell from a balcony which resulted in severe injuries and ultimately, her death. In the past, she obtained restraining orders from the court against him. Tragically, the last incident resulted in her death.

Following her death, Drew Carey has shared a petition against domestic violence

Recently, Whose Line is it Anyway host shared a petition titled, ‘Justice 4 Amie’, which demands changes in domestic violence laws. According to the petition:

β€œDomestic Violence is a serious concern for everyone. I recently lost a wonderful friend, Dr. Amie Harwick. She was murdered as a result of poor laws not protecting the victims and treating the offenders. I refuse to let her death be in vain. She was a doctor in the mental health field and advocate in the community. We need to do the same and advocate for Amie.”

The petition also demands that the restraining order do not have an expiration date and the stalker/abuser should get mandatory counseling. Truly, it is a piece of tragic news for Drew Carey and Harwick’s family. However, let’s hope and pray that lawmakers take the necessary actions to revise the laws.
