I spoke to Liz earlier, Josh is on life support, they are not allowed in the room per doctors request. He is too critical. He is in a coma. They need all the prayers and support we all can give them. She told me who did this, I am shocked no one heard this happening.... They are waiting for neuro surgeon.

Josh Schatz. He was beaten and left for dead last night. He is in ICU at St. Francis in Cape. On life support and in coma. His mother called me again and said the doctor said have to wait and see. His brain is severely bruised and an arrest was made this morning.... Liz and Terry are a mess. Need all the prayers they can get.
Please keep us updated

What happened?
There was an arrest today, of the person responsible for beating Josh last night and leaving him for dead. The person who was responsible was hidden from authorities by a relative.

The person responsible was a minor... therefore, I will not mention his name as I understand they will be seeking to try him as an adult. The relative... by law, should be charged with aiding a fugitive who had committed a crime. Also, I understand the relative came to the scene and took all cell phones so that no one could call authorities for help for Josh. This, under the law, makes them just as responsible as the person who committed the crime.

Case in point: the individual who shot all those police officers in the coffee shop just weeks ago in another state and relatives helped him to flee and hid him out.... those relatives have been arrested in that case and charged.

When one commits a crime against another person (assault with a deadly weapon) with intent... and then leaves the person for dead and does not call 911 or to get any other help can be charged with attempted murder or murder if the victim dies. The individuals who helped to transport the person responsible and then hide him from authorities (along with taking cell phones so that witnesses or others cannot call for help for the victim or report the crime) can and should be brought up on charges. They had knowledge of a crime, went to the crime scene, and did nothing to help a critically injured victim.
I hope the law moves swiftly and firmly in this matter, and I pray that Josh will recover and his family be given strength in the road that lies ahead for all of them. Help them in any way that you can. I know that Terry and Liz are at the hospital and cannot work as they are staying near Josh. This is a time to show compassion and support for the family.

I agree. The family has told me that the police have been all over this case. I applaud them for staying on top of it.
I just spoke to Liz and Terry on the phone, they are moving josh to another area of ccu. A specialist is coming in tomorrow from St. Louis for Josh. They have discovered that Josh has a broken jaw bone. The beating was mostly to the head, face and neck. He is still in a coma and still on life support.
If anyone could, I know that things are tight financially for Terry and Liz (they have not asked for anything except prayers) so if you could and are able to help them in anyway... please no matter how small... make things easier for them to be there to be with Josh. Get in contact with the local churches and community, to help this family through this crisis.
And please keep them all in your prayers... no family should have to go through this. Clarkton has many good and wonderful people in it, rally around this family.

God Bless

This is SO scary. Poor Josh. No one deserves this. I hope he makes it through, and I hope whom ever did this, IS tried as an adult and gets what he deserves! Sorry, that's just how I feel. The family are in my thoughts and prayers, and I will do whatever I can to help.

whatever the age when they do something that bad they should be outed because they will probably change.
too many are let get away with something because they are minors and they know it.
also there wasn't anything on the news.

I talked to Liz this morning (that is her comment above) and she says Josh's color is better and he is still not awake, but each small improvement is so hopeful. Some swelling has gone down and we continue to hope for more improvement with each passing day. If you know Josh, he is a strong boy and if anyone can come back from this, Josh can. Liz and Terry are staying at the hospital and rest is scarce. But they know that so many are praying for them and Josh and they appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers.
I certainly hope the news (I contacted them myself) will report on this story and follow it. Just keep praying for the family. Justice and the legal system will take care of the rest. Thanks again to Clarkton police department for the work that they have done and continue to do on this case.

Just spoke to Liz & Terry... They were in with Josh, and they are putting a feeding tube in today. Still on ventilator but swelling continues to go down. Pic line put in today as well. Still not awake. Terry and Liz are doing as well as can be expected and wants everyone to know, that they trust in the law and legal system to handle this. They are grateful for all the hard work law enforcement is doing. They also appreciate all the prayers and well wishes from everyone. Just wanted to update everyone for them.

Thank you all.
