LAKE HELEN, Fla. - A Florida father and son are wanted for allegedly beating a man severely at a wedding reception in Lake Helen.
Volusia County deputies are looking for Joel O'Grady, 38, and Julian Falkinburg, 21, who both live in Sanford.
According to a 911 call, this happened at the Granville Farms wedding venue on N. Prevatt Ave. The person told the dispatcher that they found the victim on the ground, but did not know who attacked him.
"Someone got hit really hard. He's losing blood. He can barely breathe," the 911 caller said.
Sheriff Mike Chitwood called the attack relentless.
"This isn’t like a punch. This is the guy goes down and then you stomp on him until he’s unconscious. This could have easily been a murder. Somebody could have ended up with significant brain damage." he said.
Investigators say a fight broke out between the three men in a parking lot on Saturday night.
The family shared graphic photos of the victim, Tyler Kaltenbach. The family’s attorney, Sara Howeller, said the 36-year-old is facing a long recovery including face reconstructive surgery.
"Dental work is going to be extensive. All of his upper teeth were kicked out. Many of his lower teeth," she said.
Deputies said the victim was also kicked even after becoming unresponsive. The suspects left before deputies arrived.
Authorities say the two men have extensive, violent criminal histories.
If you see them, the sheriff's office wants you to call 911.
