One week after he released a home video of his son being pummeled during a youth basketball tournament, Dale Vestal says the incident is getting plenty of attention, but the investigation is still not getting enough.
Charges have not been filed against the teenager suspected of knocking his son, Coulter Vestal, unconscious, throwing his limp body on the floor and repeatedly beating him in the head and back during the Mid America Youth Basketball tournament in March in Newton.
Vestal released the video to media last week, hoping to put pressure on Newton's police department.
The video has garnered national attention from CNN, Geraldo Rivera and others.
"I think the young man needs some help, and I want to see that he gets that," Vestal said. "I have no idea what he's done prior to this and I have no idea what he's going to do after this. I just hope that whether it's anger management or whatever it might be, I hope he gets the help and has a chance to be a good, productive kid."
