JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Danny Jalanivich, of Jackson County, broke down as he remembered the moment he saw his daughter right after she was brutally beaten and sexually assaulted. Jalanivich says he "lost it" when he saw her battered and swollen face.
Barbi Jalanivich was attacked while working at the Dominion Apartments in Ocean Springs last month.
He's revealing her identity to show the pain the crime has brought to Barbi and the family. He is also asking the community to support a golf tournament on Oct. 24 to raise funds for Barbi.
Trang Pham Bui will have more on this story that has gripped the community tonight on WLOX News and WLOX.com.
