Is there a "her son" and a "step son?" That part wasn't real clear to me.
I know you love your friend, but if her own son wants to stay, and if she is already on meds, and if the husband has taken the meds from her, then
maybe she is the problem? The meds would make her easier to get along with, so it doesn't make any sense that the husband would take the meds,
unless he believed the meds were making her crazier?
If the story really is the way you say it is, then she has to leave, and you have to help her, and if other friends need to get involved, then so be
it. He is much more likely to kill her if she stays there than if she leaves. If she leaves, and if she stays in contact with her friends and
family, then he would have to be crazy to kill her. She also needs to be on record with the police in case he does try to kill her, or succeeds at
killing her, and you need to be on record as well, in case you are also a victim, or a defender that has to justify your actions.
Get organized. Make other arrangements for her. Get your ducks, and her ducks in a row, and then call the police and let them know what is going on.
The police will likely even send over an officer to be on standby if you give them a couple hours advance notice.
Get it done, don't lolly gag and pussy foot around. Either it is dangerous or it is not. Decide now. If it really is dangerous, then act now. If
it is an exaggerated risk, then tell your friend to quit being dramatic. If the risk is real, there is no question as to what to do next. Pretending
it is complicated, or insurmountable is stupid. The risk is in the home, the longer she says there, the bigger the risk. If it is real, act now.
