One of the T.V. stations

One of the T.V. stations interviewed a cousin or brother of the victim a few days ago. As I recall, the guy is supposed to be about 6-4 and the attack was random with no provocation. The victim was in bad shape and prognosis was unknown.

It being Master's Week, who knows where that man is from. Might not be the clientele that frequents the Masters, but hopefully someone will turn him in if he hasn't got the gumption to.
