JOHNS ISLAND (WSCC) - Brittany Todd, the mother of Heidi Todd, has been released from the hospital two weeks after she was attacked and her daughter was kidnapped.
The Todd family released a statement on Tuesday:
Thank you to the entire community for the support and love that continues to help my family heal. Several days ago, the world felt like it was falling apart when we were attacked and Heidi was taken. I am grateful to report my wife’s release from the hospital following several surgeries and that we are all together again. Our road to recovery will not be easy after these traumatic experiences, but the prayers and love we have felt these days have been humbling and we greatly appreciate the respect for privacy we asked for and have received.
Police believe Brittany Todd was attacked by Thomas Lawton Evans outside of her home on Sweetleaf Lane on Johns Island. She was hospitalized for facial fractures and brain bleeding.
The suspect allegedly kidnapped 4 years old, Heidi Todd, who was later found safe in Alabama the following day. Police arrested the suspect after a chase that led into Mississippi.
