http://www.miamiherald.com/2010/03/18/1534837/girl-in-critical-condition-after.html An eighth-grade student was critically injured Wednesday afternoon at Deerfield Beach Middle School in what authorities called "a savage beating'' by a teen who stomped her with steel-toe boots. Multiple adult and student witnesses told investigators that Josie Lou Ratley, 15, was beaten up by Wayne Treacy, 15, a ninth-grader at Deerfield Beach High School. Ratley fell to the ground, then Treacy punched and stomped on her, authorities said. "This was nothing short of a savage beating,'' BSO spokesman Mike Jachles said. A schoolteacher saw the attack and pulled Treacy off Ratley, Jachles said.
