Dorian Donee Wills, age 18, is a savage beast.
He and his savage beast pals Ralph Gray, 18 and Anthony Davis, also 18, decided it would be a fun night in October 2011 to go on a wilding attack against some innocent guy minding his own business, about a year after the infamous “Polar Bear” attacks in the Champaign-Urbana, IL home of the University of Illinois.
The trio of young men found their victim, an Australian researcher visiting colleagues at the University of Illinois, late one night.
The Aussie spoke with a funny accent and wasn’t familiar with where he was at. He was a perfect target for the trio of violent predators.
Clinton Fookes did not return the the U.S. for the case, but he did send a six-page victim impact statement to the court.
“They were laughing and jumping around and appeared to be having a good time,” he said, describing how he tried to cover his head and face with his arms and hands.
“I believed I would not live through the night. … I begged them to stop hurting me and I begged for my life. I also pleaded with them by telling them I am a father and I have young children. This only made them laugh harder and it seemed to spur them on even more with the attack continuing again afterwards. … I have a memory of one of them saying how they were going to kill me,” Fookes wrote.
The trio picked him up on campus and “gave him a ride home”, taking him north of town on North Mattis Ave., beating him savagely as Fookes begged for his life, and robbed him. They they stripped him of his clothes and left him to die in the cold night air.
“I decided that I will do whatever it takes to get to safety as I would not leave my family without their father and without their husband. I also decided that I was too young to die. All of this became the fuel I needed to crawl and stumble over long distances in rough terrain to reach temporary safety in a farm barn.”
Unable to see clearly because of bleeding in his eye, Fookes made his way to a farm house but no one was home. He returned to the barn and wrapped himself in a tarp. At dawn on Oct. 21, he headed to the road where he estimated 100 cars went by, some slowing to stare at him.
“I was very grateful for the one lady who stopped to help me and who instantly knew the danger I was in, wrapped me up in her car and then called for the police and ambulance.”
…”In hindsight I realize just how lucky I am to have survived this horrific and horrendous assault. It is not every day in your life when you are confronted with such evil and vile people; people who kidnapped me against my will and attacked me over and over again.
“These people did not do this just to steal my money. Unfortunately, they did this for fun as their laughter and the joy they experienced while beating me is forever etched into my memory,” said Fookes.
…The attack left the researcher and lecturer who said he had a photographic memory unable to concentrate or process information as quickly as he previously could.
“Having received a brain injury from a vicious and unprovoked attack by some of the most evil and heinous individuals I could ever imagine, my life will never be the same,” he said.
You’re probably going to find it hard to believe our little choirboy Wills had three prior juvenile convictions for battery. Suddenly, with his pending long-term stay at the big house, Wills has been reading the Bible. Or staring at it might be a better description as we’re betting he doesn’t read so well.
His laughable statement indicated that he wanted to go to school and provide for his daughter. Yeah, right.
There’s monsters like Wills in our society. Just another reason for to pass a right-to-carry law in Illinois.
