Various media reports say that the incident occurred on Chattanooga’s Woodside Street, with Kane’s sister telling police that “she and another female got into an altercation,” leaving the victim with two stab wounds – one in the neck and one in the shoulder.
“She’s going to be all right, she will make it. I mean she has nerve damage but with time maybe that will heal up,” Heidi’s mother, Roxanne Dodson, told WRCB-TV.
Kane headed to his social media channels late in the day on July 27 to thank fans for all of their concerns.
Thank y'all so much for the prayers and concern 💯
