Victim Remains in Coma, Family & Friends Still Seeking Information

By Minna Sugimoto

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- More than five weeks after an apparent beating victim wound up in a coma, there's been little change in his condition as well as the police investigation. Family and friends of Adam Turin are once again asking for your help in the case.

It's been more than a month since a devastated woman pleaded for help in finding the person or people who hurt her son.

"It's a fight every day. Tomorrow will be 40 days," Jeanie Brown, family friend, said. "And it's a, it's a daily occurrence going and watching him try and fight his way through this."

Adam Turin was found unconscious in the driveway of 1507 S. King Street on April 18th. Doctors told police his injuries are consistent with a beating.

"It appears that the damage that's happened to his brain causes him to react more violently when he is not sedated," Brown said.

Family and friends say it's been a struggle for the outgoing 20-year-old.

"He is not responding to command," Brown said. "So that is, in the doctor's opinion, that is still considered a coma."

Brown has known Turin since he was a baby.

"To see him like this, what has it been like for you?" this reporter asked.

"Hmm, I'm not going to be able to get through that (question)," she replied, her voice cracking.

She hopes someone will come forward, not just with information on possible suspects.

"But also maybe what exactly happened to him so that the doctors will have more information as to his treatment," she said.

If you have information that could help investigators, call Honolulu police.
