The Onion published the fictional article quoted in the OP, in 2005.

In that year, the US Department of Justice recorded a true fact - that more than 1,500 American women were murdered by their partner.

It's a fake, satirical article. For example, the real Akron police chief was Michael T. Matulavich, not Thomas Agee.
