Brian Hagen

A Gofundme account has been organized for Atchison resident Brian Hagen to help with medical expenses after a recent attack inflicted on him.

A Gofundme account has been organized by a friend of an Atchison man to help with medical expenses associated with illness and healing in wake of a recent attack inflicted by another person.

John Elias, a longtime friend of Brian Hagen, a local radio personality, created the account earlier in the week.

Hagen was attacked twice within the last 20 days by a friend of one of his acquaintances, Elias indicated. Hagen’s injuries have required surgery to repair the ocular integrity of his right cheekbone.

Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson said he could not comment on whether Hagen was a victim of any of the cases his department is investigating.

"Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson said he could not comment on whether Hagen was a victim of any of the cases his department is investigating."...

They have to be investigating this case to not have comments to make on an ongoing investigation. As a former LEO, the mishandling and bungling that has occurred with this case is abysmal and inexcusable. They couldn't find a clue if it was handed to them by the perpetrator. There shouldn't have been opportunity for a second attack. The incompetence harkens back to a number of cases that department has bungled on previously and I feel sorry for Brian and the citizens of Atchison that they are saddled with such incompetence.

They won't release the suspect's name. I know his name and where he is from. Why won't they release his name? How do they expect to catch him if people don't have a name and a face to look for? This is a repeat of a case they failed to investigate 30 years ago. There is no excuse for this.
