A Maryland man who stood up to bullies died after the beating they allegedly gave him after coming to his home and targeting his son.
Christopher Wright, 43, died Saturday, one day after being savagely beaten, according to a post on Facebook by the Anne Arundel County Sheriff’s Office. The sheriff’s office said it is seeking “3-4 white males, mid 20’s to mid 30’s” in connection with the attack.
Tracy Karopchinsky, Wright’s fiancee, said the attack at their home came after fights at school that began as a scuffle over $30. Wright’s son, Trenton, 14, was involved in the fights, according to the New York Post.
On Friday evening, she said five people — three boys with whom Trenton Wright had scuffled and two adults — arrived at Wright’s home and wanted to see the 14-year-old.
“Chris came out to tell them, like, he’s not coming out here to fight, and they threatened at one point to come in and get him, and then they said, ‘If he’s not going to fight, then you’re going to fight,’” Karopchinsky told WBAL-TV.
“Just looking at the damage that was done to him, that wasn’t just punching that did that. Like, there’s no way that punching did that. The damage was done before the ambulance ever took him away. I mean, he’d had a seizure. It was done. There was nothing that the hospital could do,” Karopchinsky said.
In the account she gave to the Post, Karopchinsky said the attack on Wright was “a brutal thing. It wasn’t two people fighting.”
