Miami, Florida Woman Remains in Coma After Craigslist Roommate Brutally Attacked Her

Miami, Florida Woman Remains in Coma After Craigslist Roommate Brutally Attacked Her

Danielle Jones hasn’t woken up since her birthday on Valentine’s Day.

The 23-year-old has spent the last week in a coma, and her family said it was at the hands of the roommate she found on Craigslist.

The graphic pictures on the family’s GoFundMe page show Jones’ bloodied, bruised and stitched-up face as she lies, intubated and wearing a neck brace, in a hospital bed.

Jones, whose Facebook lists her as an HR manager at Bison Business Consulting, found her new roommate, whom NBC6 identifies as Byron Mitchell, two weeks ago.

NBC6 reported that Mitchell claimed self-defense and said Jones came after him with a knife.

Reached on Saturday, Lt. Freddie Cruz, spokesman for city of Miami Police, said he did not have details on the Feb. 14 attack that left Jones in critical condition.

“There are conflicting statements, and it’s up in the air if there was a relationship between the two,” he said.

Mitchell, 35, is being held without bond at the Metro West Detention Center on an attempted murder charge.

“If and when she wakes, she will need extensive care and rehabilitation,” her family wrote on the GoFundMe page. “Please help her any way you can. Even if just with prayers…”
