12 days after entering into a coma, 58-year-old Danny Vega has died.
The out-hairdresser and owner of Danny Vega’s Hair Design was attacked on Tuesday, November 15, 2011. Vega was walking home from work when he heard three teenagers behind him. He was viciously attacked but conscious enough to tell his niece Melanie, “They just kept beating me and I was unconscious for 30 to 45 minutes.”
The police are not considering Vega’s bashing a hate crime.
