One Year Later: Family Seeks Justice For Brutal Assault of Georgiana Man


By Catalina Trivino

It's been almost one year since a Georgiana man was brutally assaulted and left for dead in his home. And now, Douglass McCall's family is doing everything they can to seek justice.

It's been an incident that's turned their world upside down, but the McCall family refuses to give up on finding the person who did this.

This is an ongoing investigation and the family is asking for the community's help to keep an eye out for any suspicious people in the South Alabama area.

It was in August 2011 when 68-year old, Douglass McCall, was beaten and robbed at his home on Jane Avenue. Twelve hours later, he was found on his kitchen floor with severe head injuries -- and doctors were convinced he wasn't going to make it.

Almost a year later, McCall continues to fight the injuries that leave him in coma. And his family continues their fight for justice.

"We won't ever give up and just hope they find who did it, you know, but other than that I just do the best I can for them and help his daughter while she's here trying to take care of him and stuff and everything. So just let the good Lord handle it," Said McCall's nephew, Brad.

McCall's daughter, Crystal, says it's been a struggle dealing with the heartache. She's thankful her father is starting to become more responsive, but she hopes he'll be able to speak again someday so she can hear his story and get clues to find a suspect.

"In the end of it all, we will win because I will never stop looking for these people. I will never stop until God takes the air out of my body... until I see this brought to justice. I will continue to fight here with my father," Said Crystal.

The Butler County Sherriff's Office continues to search for suspects involved in the incident. And Sherriff Kenny Harden says a $5,000 reward has been issued for information leading to an arrest.

"We need to put a closure to it," Said Harden. "The person that's responsible for this should come forward and clear himself on it."
