LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A mother of three, who was found dead in Lyndon last weekend, filed a domestic violence order (DVO) against her estranged husband two years ago.

The body of Tiffany Thompson, 38, was found off New LaGrange Road about 6 a.m. Saturday. Police believe she was walking on a sidewalk during the early morning hours when she was shot and killed.
WAVE 3 News found details about the DVO, which taken out against Thompson's husband in 2014. We also learned he had taken one out against her, as well. Both DVOs resulted from an incident that happened in January 2014.
In the court documents, Thompson said she was separated from her husband and in the process of getting a divorce. She claimed her husband had been up for one week straight on meth and passed out at her home while she was having a birthday party for her daughter. Thompson claimed that several hours later, her husband grabbed her, shook her, picked her up and threw her down.

Thompson's husband claimed in the documents, that the January day went differently. He said his was was belligerent and took his prescription medication. He also said Thompson was on drugs and physically attacked him.
Thompson did not live in the Lyndon neighborhood where she was found dead. Police believe she was staying at a home with friends a few blocks from the murder scene.

Thompson's husband has not been named as a suspect in this case. Police have spoken with him and have said this was not a domestic-related crime.

"I don't believe that it was random," Lt. Emily McKinley of the LMPD Homicide Unit said. "As far as if she knew the killer, I can't say that. Obviously I don't think this was random. Just to protect the integrity of the case, we aren't going to get into any more details on that."
Thompson's funeral will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday at Evergreen Funeral Home. Visitation will be from 2. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday. A memorial fund has been set up for Thompson's three children.
