Bryan Stow: Out Of Coma And Speaking!

Bryan Stow has made a significant recovery after being beaten into a coma by Dodgers Fans at the Dodgers Stadium, during the opening night of the season. Investigators have worked many hours to try and uncover who the suspects are that beat Stow so brutally, and as of now, have had some difficulty in proving guilt by any suspect.

His family’s blog reported that Stow responded audibly and accurately to several questions asked by speech therapists on  Wednesday.

For Bryan Stow’s family and many concerned people around the country, his health has been a concern. Many have waited for the day when he would awaken from this coma and speak to his loved ones. Luckily, that day has come and he’s been able to prove that his memories are still there. Stow was able to state his name, his birth date and was able to tell his sister that he loved her.

and when his father held up a picture of Stow’s children — 8-year-old Tabitha and 12-year-old Tyler — Stow responded as any father would:

“I would like to see them.”

It is so good to see that he was able to progress this far in his recovery, because for so many, it seemed like it may not happen. Although, after the excitement of his recovery wears off, they will have many other issues to deal with.

Lawyers say Stow’s medical bills will exceed $50 million, though funds have been set up several places — including the San Francisco Police Credit Union, and via PayPal (to the email account StowDonations@gmail.com) — to help alleviate those costs.

Many individuals have come forward to say they’ll help too, notably former Giants slugger Barry Bonds, who has said he will pay college tuition for Tabitha and Tyler.

The Dodgers, trying to protect themselves legally, say they will file a civil suit against the men accused of the beating — Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood. Stow’s family is also suing the Dodgers.

UPDATE: Bryan Stow Beating Witness Dies From Food Allergy

A friend of Bryan Stow's who witnessed the attack in L.A. died suddenly Monday because of an allergic reaction.

Update: When I posted this I was aware that a friend from high school had passed from a heart attack. His name is Matt Lee. After posting this article, I came to realized that the Brentwood native was also the same man I was discussing in this article, Bryan Stow’s friend and witness to his beating. He, himself, was even punched before Stow was beaten into a coma. My thoughts go out to friends of mine who have lost a great friend, as well as his family who had to see a good guy go so young. RIP Matt Lee.

CSN Bay AreaOne of Bryan Stow’s friends who witnessed the opening day attack against Stow at Dodger Stadium has reportedly died.

KFI AM reported Monday that Matthew Lee, 26, died Sunday due to an allergic reaction to peanuts. Authorities close to the case told the Los Angeles Times that Lee had an allergic reaction after eating a salad.

Earlier in the day, Lee was identified as a witness via documents filed by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office.


Initial Suspect of Bryan Stow Case Slams LAPD

The initial suspect, Giovanni Ramirez, has a family who is not too happy about the way the LAPD has handled the Bryan Stow case and has taken to speaking out about it publicly.

Giovanni’s mother, Soledad Gonzalez, is especially upset that her son’s photo was released to the public before he was proven to be involved in the case. She has said, “If they didn’t have any proof, why did they put a picture of him in public and say he’s the suspect?”

Since the beginning, there has been no sufficient evidence of his involvement. During the lineup, only one individual was able to positively ID his, while two others identified a different individual altogether and the other four witnesses failed to identify anyone at all. Along with this, his Uncle had an alibi for his whereabouts and told the police department about this from the beginning.

The only thing that was going good for the department were the witnesses that were able to positively ID him in a photo lineup.

Los Angeles Times - “But after scouring mobile phone records, thousands of images from surveillance camera footage, financial records and hundreds of other possible links and tips, detectives were unable to link Ramirez to the beating.”
