My family would like to publicly express our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to Ron Rook of the Bradenton area, whose selfless honesty and integrity prevented a very significant loss of personal property belonging to my stepdaughter. Most people in a similar situation would likely have done something far different knowing there would have been no proof of their actions. Men and women like Mr. Rook define the best in American conscience.
Detective April Culbreath of the Manatee County Sheriff's Office handled this case with conspicuous professional competency and diligence, and we are grateful for her kindness and thoroughness in bringing this to a close.
