Family of Kingsville Stabbing Victim Seeks Justice

Posted: Updated:
KINGSVILLE (Kiii News) -

A Kingsville man who was stabbed in the throat is fighting for his life as police continue their search for the assailant.

Amy Myers is very emotional about what happened to her godfather, 59-year old William Yow.

"He's an awesome man," Myers said. "He'll give you the shirt off his back if he has to. He'll give you the last dollar in his pocket. He'll give you whatever it takes, and for somebody to do this to him is awful. He doesn't look how he's supposed to look. All those cords. All those wires."

Amy Myers explained that Yow is in critical condition, on life support and unable to speak. It was over the weekend when police say Yow was stabbed at his home at 914 East Lott in Kingsville.

Myers said that, if the people responsible did this once, they'll do it again, and she just hopes police catch them before that happens.

"These people are evil, and they're going to get what they deserve," Myers said. "We're going to seek justice for him, no matter how long it takes, no matter where we've got to go, no matter where we've got to take it, we will seek justice."

Myers said that, if her godfather pulls through, he has a long recovery ahead of him, but that his family will be by his side and support him.

The Kingsville Police Department said it did interview some people of interest on Tuesday, but so far they have not made any arrests.
