The injured man’s brother has shared with NetNewsledger some of what the family is going through. Early this week, Ronnie Beaver, stated, “Last night when I was there when I saw my brother struggling for life. I know my brother would never physically hurt another human being. I really felt sorry for the person responsible. He didn’t just break the 7 spiritual natural laws of; Love – Respect – Honesty – Truth – Humility – Wisdom – Courage, he broke the natural laws against himself and his family now he will suffer and pay for it rest of his life. This is just the way it is believe me”.

On Thursday Ronnie reported, “I want to share what I know about my brother who is still in coma from the beating. Most of the his injuries are around his head, on Saturday his brain was bleeding and swollen so they did surgery to remove a bone from his skull to relieve pressure and for blood drainage. I don’t know if he will ever fully recover if he wakes up. He is still suffering with pain it really hurts when we watch him fighting for his life. Today my family called a meeting 2pm tomorrow. He still on life support. I know what my brother wants. I doing a sweatlodge ceremony for him this evening”.

The family has asked that people say a prayer for their injured family member, and hope that will help their injured brother.
