Fundraising Drive for Josie Lou Ratley

A collection drive has been formed to help provide a wheelchair-friendly home for Josie Lou Ratley, who is recovering from a savage beating.

The teen, savagely kicked multiple times in the head outside Deerfield Beach Middle School on March 17, can barely remember her ABCs and struggles with counting to 10, her mother said.

Police have charged Wayne Treacy, 15, with first-degree attempted murder. He remains in Broward County’s main jail, charged as an adult.

Another teen, Kayla Manson, 13, is charged as a principal for allegedly helping Treacy find Ratley that day.

The Fundraising will enable Josie to move into a wheelchair-friendly home. Those interested in donating are asked to call (954) 561-2626 or visit

The family and friends of Josie Lou Ratley thanks everyone in advance who will participate in this fundraising.
