Viola youth beaten; investigation under way

Thursday, October 20, 2011

A Viola youth was found badly beaten a short distance from Viola High School on Thursday, Oct. 13, and the Fulton County Sheriff's Department is investigating to determine who is responsible for his injuries.

The 12 year old was found laying on the ground early in the evening.

He was transported to the Fulton County Hospital where a number of Viola youth gathered out of concern, as the victim was being treated.

Deputy Joe Boshears confirmed that the sheriff's department is investigating the beating incident, but declined to release details out of fear of compromising an active investigation, which is continuing.
