A West Virginia man has died following an investigation into his sister’s assault.
In case you haven’t heard concerning the case, a girl named Wanda Palmer just lately awoke from a 2-year coma after being brutally “attacked, hacked and left for dead” in June of 2020. After initially believing Wanda to be deceased, police stated it was a miracle she survived the extreme trauma to the cranium and mind. A weapon was by no means discovered, in line with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Workplace, however officers imagine it was one thing like a hatchet or a machete. Actual horror film stuff.
However the story will get even crazier…
Wanda truly awoke from her coma earlier this summer season! Naturally legislation enforcement went to pay her a go to on the nursing residence she had been staying at for the previous two years, and the consequence was a real shock. On July 12 she was in a position to reveal her attacker: none apart from her BROTHER, Daniel J. Palmer III!
Daniel was charged with tried homicide and malicious wounding and brought into custody, the place his bail was set at $500,000. It appeared justice was lastly being served after two complete journeys across the solar, and this man was lastly going to pay for his heinous crime! However in a tragic flip of occasions, we’ve now realized that the alleged attacker has died.
This story has so many twists and turns!
Jackson County Sheriff Ross Mellinger advised Individuals over the weekend that Daniel had been transported to a Charleston Hospital final Wednesday and died the next day — probably on account of pure causes. Ross defined:
“It was an avalanche of recurring health issues. He generally was not a healthy man to begin with and once he got to jail his health continued to spiral downhill.”
He had solely been in custody for seven days… We’re positive that the pure shock from his child sis waking up and revealing him because the attacker was sufficient to ship him right into a state of excessive stress and throw his preexisting circumstances off the rails.
“From an investigator’s standpoint it is unfortunate we don’t get the chance to see the case through. We turn the focus towards the victim in the case and hope she continues to get better. She has a long road ahead of her.”
We’re simply glad Wanda is awake and on the highway to restoration. What are YOUR ideas, Perezcious readers? Would you might have appreciated to see Daniel face Wanda and serve time? Tell us within the feedback (beneath)!
