It took a lot for me to decide to do the CBS 48 Hours story about my attack. I was looking for what made sense as to why I would do this. I had avoided the local media over and over again because I didn’t see the point for the story being out there except to satisfy the curiosity of others.
After I received the call from 48 Hours, I called the Prairie Village Chief of Police. We talked for a very long time about reasons why I should do the interview. Through talking with him, I understood that it could be a good way to thank all of the people who came to my aid.
I would like to thank the Chief, detectives, first responders, the attorney, the surgeons, my coworkers, the therapist, my kickboxing instructor, my family and friends.
Chief Wes Jordan sent the following memo to Detectives Luke Roth and Jason Wakefield, and their Certificates of Recognition are below.
