A Vista family is searching for answers to who and why someone fatally assaulted their brother at a 7-Eleven on North Santa Fe Drive and West Los Angeles Drive.
The May 6 blindside attack left 33-year-old Francisco Castro bruised on nearly every inch of his body and with a serious head injury from which he never woke up, his family exclusively told NBC7.
His family said the blow that ended his life was a beer bottle to the back of his head as he tried to walk away from his attackers.
Castro’s tight-knit family visited him nearly every day in the hospital for more than six months, hoping he might wake up. But he never did, and he died early this week.
“We just miss him,” said Florecita Castro, the victim’s sister. “And I wish we had him back, but it’s not going to happen.”
“Whoever did this, my brother is gone,” she said. “Please just come forward, anyone. Any leads. If you want to be anonymous, it’s OK. We just want the person who did this to be caught.”
Castro worked at a North County restaurant for 15 years. He is survived by his extensive family, including his 2-year-old son.
