Police Seek Help In 2010 Assault That Left Woman Paralyzed
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Clarksville Police need help finding those responsible for the brutal attack on a woman that left her partially paralyzed, confined to a nursing home, and without memory of the assault.
Police said Keisha Reed, now age 34, was hospitalized after a 911 call reporting a woman throwing up blood for an unknown reason on August 6, 2010. Her condition deteriorated, and it was believed she might die. Police said there was never any report of an assault, but about a week later a family member called police to report that Reed had been body-slammed onto the ground outside of a Greenfield Drive residence.
Reed fell into a coma and could not provide police with information. However, police interviewed a possible suspect and alleged witnesses; however, they were uncooperative.
Reed woke up from the coma in February 2011, but was unable to speak. She has since been admitted to a nursing home and regained the ability speak. However, she has partial paralysis to the left side of her body, has recurring memory loss and lapses and no recollection of the assault.
Anyone with information is asked to call Detective David Bramel at 931-648-0656, extension 5161 or call the TIPSLINE at 931-645-8477.
