Tracy KaropchinskyWright’s fiancée and mother of his children, told WBAL-TV Second her 14 year old son Trenton clash with another teenager at school, Brooklyn Park High School in Anne Arundel County, earlier that day. That night, a group of five went to their home to find her son, and Chris went out to resolve the situation. Sadly, things went south quickly:
“Chris went out to tell them, say, he didn’t come here to fight, and at one point they threatened to come and arrest him, and then they said, ‘If he’s not going to fight,’ , then you will fight.'”
Chris was then attacked by the ferocious group, mercilessly beaten, and repeatedly hit his head on concrete in front of his family. When emergency responders finally arrived, they quickly took him to a nearby shock trauma center, but it was too late. Tracy told the store:
“Damage was done before the ambulance took him away. He’s having a seizure, that’s it. There was nothing the hospital could do.”
A day later, the 43-year-old father died of a traumatic brain injury. How completely heartbreaking.
Chris’ sister-in-law, Kristin Karopchinsky shared with the store through teary eyes:
“I will never forget the noise my grandchildren made when we had to tell them [their father] gone.”
The entire incident was recorded by the family and neighbors’ security cameras. Tracy explained that she tried to watch the footage again, but it all became overwhelming for her when she saw her 12-year-old son rushing to try to help his father:
“I was at Shock Trauma, and at first my dad and I were trying to get the camera on, and the first video that came out was my 12-year-old son screaming, ‘Daddy, daddy, daddy’ and running. out of the house to the street to help my father. And, I couldn’t watch anymore after that. I just can’t.
Who can blame her? We can’t even imagine…

Our hearts are broken for Chris’ family. We hope they can find some kind of justice – although obviously nothing will be able to bring their husbands and fathers back.
