The Missouri teenager whose life appeared to be shattered when she was reduced to a twitching wreck after her head was slammed into the pavement during a March 8 fight is making strides toward recovery.

In March, a viral video showed Maurnice DeClue and Kaylee Gain fighting, with DeClue getting the better of the punches and then slamming Gain’s head into the pavement over and over.

DeClue is facing an assault charge and a hearing to determine whether the 15-year-old will be tried as an adult for her battle with the 16-year-old Gain.

Gain, who was in a coma for two weeks after the incident, is making unexpected progress, according to an update posted on a GoFundMe page by her father. Clinton, and her stepmother, Jamie.

“We wanted to share an update on Kaylee’s progress. We have been truly amazed by the progress she has made in such a short time,” they wrote on April 16.

“Physically she is doing well, walking with little to no assistance but must wear a helmet for her safety as she is still missing her bone flap. That will be another surgery for her down the road.

“Cognitively Kaylee has greatly improved since first waking up from her coma, however, there is still a lot of work she will need to do in order to get fully back to herself prior to the incident,” the post continued.

“Kaylee will continue to have PT/OT therapy as well speech and counseling to help her through this traumatic experience.”

The update closed with a thanks that went beyond the donations received.

“Again, we are so grateful for the support and prayers. The power of prayer is truly seen through her recovery so far,” they wrote.

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey has said that he supports trying DeClue as an adult.

“This evil and complete disregard for human life has no place in Missouri, or anywhere. I am praying for the victim. The criminal should be charged and tried as an adult,” he said, according to KRCG-TV.

Although DeClue’s family has painted her as the victim of bullying and a high-achieving student, Gain family attorney, Bryan Kaemmerer, has said an individual with that level of smarts should have known better.

“If anything, the accused’s reported level of intelligence suggests that she was fully capable of understanding that violence of this nature would lead to the devastating injuries that Kaylee has sustained, and therefore provides a further reason why it is appropriate for her to be tried as an adult,” Kaemmerer said.

A certification hearing will be held on May 10 to determine whether DeClue will be tried as an adult, according to USA Today.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 

 

That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.

 

Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.

 

The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

 

All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.

 

Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 

 

A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.

 

We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight? 

 

Sincerely,

Josh Manning

Deputy Managing Editor
