on behalf of Carleigh Hager
 INDIANAPOLIS, IN




It was on October 22, 2016, that more than Carleigh Hager's trust was broken, it was also when she was brutally beaten by Ryan Cameron (now ex-boyfriend). Carleigh and Ryan had returned home after celebrating a friend's wedding. It was getting late and Carliegh was ready to leave, but Ryan wanted to continue in the festivities. After arguing over leaving, they returned home and Carleigh went to bed. Ryan invited three friends over and began desparaging Carleigh to his friends. An argument between Ryan and his friends ensued and Ryan left the room. He went into the bedroom  where Carleigh was sleeping, locked the door and began strangling her. Ryan's friends heard Carleigh call out and broke the bedroom door to get to her. Ryan began fighting his friends and pushed them out of the house and locked them out. The friends called the police and began trying to break through the front door. In the meantime, Carleigh had gone into the bathroom. Ryan followed her into the bathroom and began brutally beating Carleigh, slamming her head into the tub, biting wherever he could reach. He attempted to bite off her finger and the tip of her ear. He also attempted to rip her tongue out of her mouth.  He dragged her through the house, leaving a quarter sized opening on her forehead. At some point during the beating, Carleigh lost consciousness, eventually awakening  with a female officer standing over her, calling for an ambulance.

Beyond the injuries already described, there were over 20 bite marks throughout her body. The severe beating also resulted in swelling and blood on her brain.

Carleigh has an extremely long road to recovery ahead of her. It will be at least three weeks before she can eat solid foods due to the severe damage to her tongue. The medical expenses, prescription medications, physical and mental therapy, everyday living cost, etc. are going to be unreal. Please donate whatever you can, even if it is only $5. Every little bit helps.

Is there a person or place where someone can send a card or letter of encouragement if she's open to receiving them? I don't know Carleigh, but I know how much support is needed after surviving domestic abuse. I would love to help.

Your Gofundme campaign appeared in my Facebook feed with others. I'm sorry I cannot help now. I have three kids and I'm not working. I just wanted to tell you that I'm praying for your recovery- mind, body, and soul. No one deserves what happened to you. No one. Sending you love and healing light. May you heal completely inside and out and have a beautiful life with people who love you immensely and protect you always. Hugs...

To Carleigh: I'm sure you've already been in touch with advocates who have given you this info, but just in case, here's a link to eligibility requirements for Indiana Crime Victims Compensation: http://iot.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/743 You should qualify under the first section. Hopefully if the costs exceed what you're able to raise here, you can seek relief from the state. Best of luck and much love to you!

He is not out on bail as stated by Ryan Mercer below - not sure where Ryan got that. Ryan Cameron is still in jail at this moment according to Tim O'Brien at Fox News 4, and should stay there for at least as long as Carleigh has any scar.

This is a sad story, however the saddest part is yet to come. She will most likely return to the guy who did this to her. It's just the way it is.

This happened to me two years ago. I hope she always keeps faith that there are greener pastures. The fire I had in my belly after it happened to me fueled me to do awesome things with my life. Stay mighty Carleigh and don't ever be robbed of your JOY! You survived for a purpose. ❤️️
