The man accused of brutally beating a San Francisco Giants fan earlier this year has been exonerated, with two new suspects arrested Thursday, TMZ reported.
The Los Angeles Police Department had arrested Giovanni Ramirez in May in connection with the beating of Bryan Stow on opening day at Dodger Stadium.
But now law enforcement sources tell TMZ that there had been some questions raised over the accuracy of the initial investigation after published reports suggested Ramirez wasn’t even at the game.
As a result, the case was handed over to robbery homicide detectives, who determined there was not enough evidence to point to Ramirez as the culprit.
Ramirez remains in jail on a parole violation. His family told TMZ they are “ecstatic and thrilled” over the development.
Meanwhile, two new suspects have been arrested in the case. Both are said to be male Hispanics, one of whom is in his mid-20s.
The March 31 attack left Stow with brain damage. He had been at County-USC Medical Center in Los Angeles before being moved to San Francisco General Hospital in May.
Stow still struggles with serious health issues as a result of the beating. A recent post on Support4BryanStow.com, a website set up by his family, claims that he recently had emergency surgery due to “massive amounts of fluid building up that caused a 30-second seizure.”
