Authorities have identified the suspects behind the sickening ice bucket challenge prank that soaked an autistic 14-year old boy with human body waste, a lawyer for the boy’s family said.
“Police were able to identify a majority of the suspects in the video that actually perpetrated this really heinous act,” attorney Dean Valore told NBC News. “There are still some additional unidentified people, (but) investigators are hoping by the end of the week to turn the case over to the local prosecutor’s office.”
“We’ve been inundated with an outpouring, nationally and internationally, of support, both financially and moral support — from celebrities, from moms in their kitchens with autistic kids calling me,” Valore said.
Comedian Drew Carey over the weekend offered $10,000 reward to those who can bring the bullies to justice.
Two more other celebrities, Jenny McCarthy, and Donnie Wahlberg , joined him totaling the reward to $30,000, Fox News reported.
