A 29-Year-Old soccer player tragically died weeks after he was savagely attacked by multiple people during a soccer match in Oxnard, California earlier this month.
The brawl started around 11 AM on July 10th at Oxnard High School, when Misael was brutally beaten by opposing players and spectators after a dispute over a referee’s call.
The attack left Sanchez severely injured and unresponsive on the field. He was taken to the Ventura County Medical Center.
The family announced Sanchez’s death 15 days later. An autopsy will determine the official cause of death.
“My family is heartbroken and still in disbelief, as we expected a bright future for him,” the family said Monday.
“Misael was assaulted by multiple assailants on July 10, 2022, and left in critical condition. We were not ready for this type of goodbye.”
The family is now asking for prayers and for donations to cover Sanchez’s funeral.
“Thank you for the love, support, and prayers.”
Oxnard Police Dept. arrested a 46-year-old man believed to be involved in the deadly brawl. They’re still looking for others who may have been involved.
