Family of victim tortured on Facebook Live holds press conference in suburban Crystal Lake.
The victim of a racially-charged attack live-streamed on Facebook is recovering, and his family expressed “disbelief” Thursday that such events could even happen.
The family spoke out hours after the four alleged attackers were charged with hate crime, aggravated kidnapping and other offenses, and shared their gratitude to police officers for investigating when they came across the victim freezing cold, bloodied as he hobbled down a dark West Side street alone.
There are still no words other than evil and despicable when seeing what transpired against this young man with mental disability. Here is the family below talking about the events. [TURN UP YOUR VOLUME, THIS IS A LOW RECORDING]
