Kevin will undergo surgery later today to remove bone fragments and stabilize his neck. The surgery is slated to begin in the late afternoon, so it wouldn’t make sense for any visitors to come after about 2:00 p.m. or so. The surgery is expected to last many hours, so we may not have an update on how it went until very late. We will get one posted as soon as we have more information.
Meanwhile, we are still hoping the police will be able to locate the person they believe is responsible. We appreciate all of your efforts to help get the word out. We’re hopeful the police will be able to locate him or that he’ll turn himself in. We need the person who did this off the streets.
