Ad company aims to catch suspects in Giants fan beating
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- An advertising company is pushing to help find the men who severely beat a San Francisco Giants fan on opening game at Dodgers Stadium.
Lamar Advertising posted 200 billboards with police sketches of Bryan Stow's attackers on Thursday, and the company is slated to install 100 more across Southern California by the end of May. The area around Dodgers stadium is a major focus.
The billboards are a donation from Lamar Advertising, which has posted billboards for Amber Alerts in the past but never something like this.
"With the Giants coming in town next week, our general manager Ray Baker felt it necessary to remind the public that these assailants are still out there," said office manager Luly Armienta. "If we had the boards available, why not?"
Meantime, doctors are considering transferring Stow to a Bay Area hospital - closer to his family. He remains in a medically-induced coma in critical condition.
Doctors want to make sure Stow is not having seizures and his vital signs are stable before he is moved, which could happen sometime next week.
Anyone with information on the suspects was urged to call the LAPD at (877) LAPD-24-7 or (877) 527-3247.
