Baby of woman who was stabbed while walking on greenway goes home for first time

BROOKHAVEN, Ga. — There is some good news for the woman who was attacked and stabbed while walking along the Brookhaven Greenway.

Valerie Kasper had to have an emergency C-section after the attack back in June. Since then, her baby boy, named Theodore, has been in the NICU at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston.

We learned Friday that boy is now home with his mother.

“Theodore came home on 1/4 oxygen, feeding tube for every 3 hours feeds that are fortified, apnea and heart monitor that is like a fire alarm if he does not breath for 20 seconds or his heart rate drops below 60. His meds include caffeine for his apnea, acid reflux meds, and a vitamin,” Kasper said in a GoFundMe account update.


“His care is definitely overwhelming and exhausting but we are getting used to the routines. We will be getting an at-home nurse in a few weeks to support us. We are hoping and praying he thrives at home,” Kasper said.

People who live near the greenway said at the time of the attack that they were shocked something like that happened there.

“When I saw the picture of her with her family, I thought, ‘Oh my God,’” Cynthia Moore said.

“I feel for her family, her husband and her child,” Ronnie Mayer said.

Days after the attack, police arrested Christopher Jones at the Midtown MARTA Station in Atlanta.

A grand jury indicted Jones in August on charges of aggravated assault with intent to murder. He remains in jail.
