Another one punch kill tip from Mr. Scrappycrow.
A Delafield man died Wednesday, July 12, nearly a month after he was punched in the head outside a Hartland bar. Family said he was targeted over his tattoos. A Brookfield man is charged.
Family said Josh Davies was out on a date night with his wife on June 17 when a man he never met before made comments about his tattoos before throwing a punch.
Jamie Davies spoke with FOX6 hours after her older brother passed away.
“The suffering and pain my brother endured for the last 26 days was not his fault,” said Jamie Davies.
The group told police a stranger punched Davies, causing him to fall backward and hit his head on the cement. He suffered skull fractures and brain bleeds.
Prosecutors say witnesses heard Sehmer instantly make comments about the victim’s tattoos inside the bar, saying he was “going to hell, and God would not save him.”
Outside the bar, the complaint says witnesses saw Sehmer throw a stool at the victim before throwing a punch.
This is consistent with every other one punch kill I’ve documented.
The initial punch causes a loss of consciousness. The victim falls and his their head on hard ground, usually concrete. That impact causes a brain bleed and/or swelling, which is fatal.
I’ve documented deaths occurring days later, but I believe that 26 days post punch is the longest I’ve seen so far.
Traumatic brain injuries are fickle. Patients can linger in comas for years. Sometimes the brain heals, sometimes it doesn’t and the person dies, never regaining consciousness.
This is tragic and terrible.
I will continue to post this, unarmed doesn’t mean not dangerous.
A sucker punch can be lethal.
If some asshole gets in your face with malicious intent, distance is your friend.
Stay out of arms reach. De-escalate of you can and be prepared to defend yourself if you can’t.
Whatever you do, don’t let your guard down and get clocked in the head. You may never wake up again.
