A Logan County man brutally beaten with a hammer speaks out. Police say the attack last Monday was all for his pickup truck. Now, one surgery later, Timothy Milligan is back at home with his family. On Saturday, the victim shared his story for the first time.

It’s difficult to even think about.

“It just crushed my skull so bad that they had to glue the pieces back together, glue it on the metal and put the piece of the metal in my head,” said Milligan.

All of this because police say two men wanted Timothy Milligans pickup truck. They used a hammer beating him repeatedly.

Now, Milligan is out of the hospital, back at home recovering with his family and wondering why his pickup truck was worth the brutal attack.

“If they would come to me and say I need a ride here or there, I would have given it to them,” said Milligan.

He has a loving heart his family respects, but still, they want answers and justice.

Healing and hurting, all the while wondering why.

No arrests have been made yet in the attack. State Police did find Milligan's stolen pickup truck. His son, Timothy Jr., says he plans to start a neighborhood watch in the community. The family is offering a $2,500 hundred dollar reward.
