Police said he is the man wearing the white t-shirt in the surveillance video.
"I just want to tell everybody thank you for calling in - I appreciate everybody that called in and identified them because now were able to catch them and they will not be on the street anymore to hurt another family," said the victim's daughter, who wished to remain anonymous.
Police said because of our coverage and the many phone calls Prichard Police received after we aired the story on July 1, they now know who to look for.
Prichard Police said that suspect is Joseph Caples. Police said he is the man wearing a black t-shirt and wielding the pistol in the video.
"I believe that my mom is a very strong person because she made it through a brutal attack and was able to pull herself together and call for help instead of just laying there," said the victim's daughter.
