SUSPECTS IDENTIFIED – NEW THREAD SEE HERE – All Earlier Updates Prior to ID Below Fold
A vicious attack has been captured on a video. –earliest identifiable origin here– A baby and young woman are both victims of a brutal attack, that appears to have taken place on/around 6/23/15.
The video includes no specifics as to location, or identity, of victim or perpetrator. U-Tube continues to chase the video and delete it, keeping it hidden.
However, it is on FaceBook:
and also on LiveLeak HERE And we have saved a copy:
The horrific manner of the attack has impacted many Treepers and discussion participants of this site. Therefore we are offering a reward (currently
$500 $1,000 $1,250 ) for information about this attack, to include location, which will lead to the identification of the person(s) involved. Our intent is to contact the local authorities with this video and identifying information therein.
If you have any information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org – to the extent we are able, we *guarantee anonymity.
*Note: If compelled by law, enforcement, or legal statutory authority, we may be compelled to release tipster identity.
UPDATE: 11:30pm EST According to LiveLeak: “the baby sustained head trauma and a concussion according to fb, i’m not sure what type of celebratory dance one of the males is doing while the women is being pummeled, when i find out, i’ll update this post.” Location: Missouri, United States (link)
UPDATE 12:15pm 6/25/15 Just checked the tip line, no luck yet. One person believes the attack might have happened in Texas, but no confirmation. Basically no-one knows yet where this took place. • Some people are confusing this recent attack with an earlier report from March; while they have similarities, ie. an injured baby/toddler, they are not the same.
• The video of this attack has been viewed by approximately 10,000,000 people on various platforms. Obviously there is a lot of attention; unfortunately, no strong leads.
UPDATE: 8:00pm 6/25/15 Many people are conflating this current video with an earlier video in March of similar consequence. The Facebook response above seems likely one of those similarly confused.
• Stunningly a reporter for the Washington Free Beacon, Lachlan Markay, has opined that sharing the video of the attack is “thinly veiled racism“. However, reverse the races and imagine 2 white females, and 2 white men, attacking a black female (and black baby) and the racial concern disappears.
Reward Details – We plan to offer the reward for another 24 hours (midnight Friday cut off). If no-one comes forth with information, which leads to identification – ALL contributions toward the reward will be refunded Saturday (6/27) before noon. Out of an abundance of caution we are not increasing the reward based on pledges, only actual receipts. If you have donated to the reward fund you should have rec’d a confirmation note from me in that regard. Current reward stands at $1,250.
