Justice for Tyler

On the evening of Halloween Tyler Ellis was attacked by a group while on campus at Georgia Southwestern State University.   He was struck in the head first causing him to lose consciousness. After he was unconscious the group continued to kick Tyler multiple times in the face and head .  The initial blow not only caused two fractures to the skull , but also multiple brain bleeds. The kicks to the face caused broken bones to face. Tyler was initially taken to Sumter County Hospital, but with the severity of his injuries was sent to Macon, Ga for better care in the ICU unit.  While we can’t at this time give anything more on the details of who committed this terrible crime, we are confident in the investigation taking place in Americus. His family will not rest until we have justice for this kind and caring kid.  Tyler’s mom isa single parent raising two kids on her own; one in college, and one in High School.  The amount of hospital bills piling up is not something she should be worried with at this time. If you find it in your heart to help, any amount is very much appreciated. 


Tyler is slowing improving, but please continue to keep him in your daily prayer.
