Who is Josiah Kassahun?
23 year-old Josiah Kassahun, who was allegedly attacked by Terry Kennedy, suffered a fractured skull and a concussion in the attack.
The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office told TMZ on Sunday that Josiah had died following the attack in an Illinois motel.
A GoFundMe page which was set up in Josiah’s memory reads in part:
“Josiah was and will always be remembered as the perfect friend to everyone who had the good fortune of meeting him. He was loved and had much love to give and he will be dearly missed by an infinite number of people.”
The money will be used to “memorialise Josiah in some way,” and at the time of writing, the campaign has raised over $17,000 in less than 24 hours.
