Another Craigslist Horror: Girl Beaten Into Coma And Slashed

(SL) – A South Florida woman is hospitalized in a coma after she was allegedly attacked by a roommate she recently found on Craigslist.

Court records show 35-year-old Byron Mitchell is jailed on attempted murder charges in the Valentine’s Day attack on 23-year-old Danielle Jones. Mitchell has entered a written not guilty plea.

According to a Miami police report, Mitchell claims it was self-defense and that Jones came at him with a knife. Jones suffered numerous slashes and bruises.

Authorities say Mitchell had recently moved into Jones’ downtown Miami apartment after she found him on the Craigslist roommate listings.

Jones’ family has launched a GoFundMe page to raise money for her medical and other expenses. You can donate here: www.gofundme.com/6jpyggsc.
