A Miami mother is praying for a miracle as her daughter struggles to recover from critical injuries she incurred after a roommate she found on Craigslist brutally attacked her last Sunday, according to reports.
Danielle Jones, 23, was working for a catering company and living in a Downtown Miami apartment when she found her roommate, Byron Mitchell on Craigslist, WTVJ-TV reported.
The 35-year-old had been living with Jones for a week when he allegedly attacked her on Feb. 14. It was her 23rd birthday.
“I’m still in shock, I can’t comprehend that someone can do this to someone, mutilate them in such a way and try to kill them,” Aimee Nikolove, the victim’s mother, told WTVJ-TV.
Family and friends said they’re still struggling to make sense of the violent attack that left their “young, vibrant and independent” Danielle barely recognizable.
