The mother of the lone survivor of last month's deadly shootings in Crandon is speaking out about her son's recovery. Charlie Nietzel and seven other people were shot in an apartment house by 20-year-old Tyler Peterson, an off-duty sheriff's deputy and Crandon police officer, after Peterson argued with his ex-girlfriend. Investigators say Peterson later killed himself during a standoff in nearby Argonne. Neitzel is still recovering from his injuries. Carole Neitzel recently wrote about what her family is going through in an email to the local newspaper on November 6th. She included a recent picture of Charlie and said, "He is in a full arm cast from his shoulder down to his knuckles of his fingers. He essentially has no elbow. The bullet shattered several inches of the bone so severely that the doctor has nothing to work with to stabilize it." While Charlie can't put any weight on his injured foot for up to six more months, there is some good news about his recovery. "He flexed his calf muscle and wiggled his toes!! That is HUGE in that his foot has been essentially dead since the bullet damaged the sciatic nerve in his leg," his mother wrote. "We didn't know to what extent it was damaged and now the doctor says we know it is not completely severed"... (Full article here)
