Woman was who brutally attacked wakes up from 2-year coma and identifies her brother as her assailant

JACKSON COUNTY, West Virginia — Two years after she was found dead, a woman woke up from a coma and identified her brother as the alleged assailant who nearly killed her.

In June 2020, neighbors found Wanda Palmer slumped over her couch and covered in blood with severe injuries caused by what appeared to be an ax or hatchet, according to authorities.

“I wouldn’t have put a nickel on her life that morning,” Jackson County Sheriff Ross Mellinger said. WCHS. “She was in such bad shape. And, quite frankly, she was unconscious and circling the drain medically. Massive, massive amounts of head trauma. You know, consistent with some sort of machete or pocket knife type injury.”

Wanda Palmer has been hospitalized ever since, unable to tell investigators who attacked her and why.

Mellinger said authorities were trying to eliminate suspects, develop leads and execute search warrants. He added that Wanda Palmer and her brother, 55-year-old Daniel Palmer, had a history of violence. But the authorities had no evidence that he could do that.

Days ago, Wanda Palmer’s nursing home called authorities that she was awake and able to speak.

When a deputy asked her who hurt her, she said it was her brother.

“For her to be able to wake up and say, you know, name it, thank God. That’s all I can say. Thank God, because she definitely deserves justice. Definitely,” Mellinger said.

Daniel Palmer has been charged with attempted murder and malicious wounding.
