KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Brutally beaten and left for dead, 20-year-old Timothy Mulvey continues to recover in a hospital Wednesday night. Police have reviewed surveillance footage and identified two men they want to talk to in connection with the attack on him Sunday morning.
The victim's mother spoke with FOX 4 Wednesday night. Janet Carlson tells us her son has now been moved to a burn unit.
“He's moved to the burn unit because the frostbite is what's actually going to keep him here for the longest,” Carlson said. “He's got first-degree burns caused by frostbite on over two-thirds of his body.”
But she's finding comfort knowing someone could be held responsible for the attack on her son. Police released surveillance images and describe the possible suspects as two men, both white, one wearing a black coat, sweatshirt and a hat; the other wearing a gray striped shirt.

Late Saturday night a friend dropped Mulvey off at QuikTrip near Johnson Drive and Quivira. That's when three men Mulvey didn't know approached him asking if he wanted to go to a party. Carlson said her son was slightly intoxicated and agreed to go with them.
Not only did police say the men beat Mulvey, but that when he tried to get away, one drove over him with the car, dragging him more than 300 feet. Carlson says the surveillance images show the culprits.
"I've seen those pictures also, and I showed those pictures to my son and he says without a shadow of a doubt, that is the men that did it," she said. "I hope that it's a good enough video that somebody will be able to see exactly who they are, and I hope someone calls the detective working the case."
If you recognize the two men in the picture, you're urged to give KCK police a call or the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474-TIPS.
