Ravenswood, West Virginia’s Wanda Palmer wakes up from coma, accuses Daniel Palmer of attacking her in 2020


Daniel James Palmer III, 55, and Wanda Denise Palmer, 51, are children of Eileen F. Palmer, 75. They all live in Ravenswood, Jackson County, West Virginia, United States.

“Help needed,” Wanda wrote on Facebook on June 3, 2020. “The weed-eat n lawn !!! Give me call !!!”


On June 10, 2020, lawn-care workers showed up at Wanda’s house in Ravenswood and found her with severe head injuries. She was unconscious and slumped over a couch inside the house, which is near Eileen’s residence.

“They came Wednesday morning to mow her grass and they found her in a pool of blood,” Eileen told WTAP. “They said they ran up on the hill real fast and told us, and I called the police.”


Wanda was rushed to the hospital in critical condition and fell into a coma. After being in a coma for about two years, she started to mutter words on June 27, 2022.

“We had a little bit of an idea what happened but the problem was with the nuts and bolts of the case we had nothing to go on,” Jackson County sheriff Ross Mellenger told West Virginia MetroNews. “There was no eye witnesses. Nobody lived in the home. (There were) no surveillance footage (and) no cell phone records. There was virtually nothing there to move forward on.”

On July 12, 2022, police officers visited Wanda in the nursing home where she was receiving care. She revealed to them that Daniel attacked her on June 10, 2020.

On July 15, 2022, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office announced that Daniel has been arrested. He was charged with attempted murder and malicious wounding.
