The driver of the van accelerated as Inspector McCaghren was searching it. He was thrown from the van and received injuries, which he succumbed to the following day.

The driver of the van was apprehended five days later. He was convicted of first degree murder and was sentenced to 50 years in prison without parole.

Many years ago (about 30) I was a little girl who lived down the way from Tim, Brandt, Deidre, and Chastity in an apartment complex in Georgia, where my dad, Thomas Harden, was also stationed. Tonight I'm watching home videos of Brandt, Chastity, and Deidre, and I just wanted to tell the three of you I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope you are all well. This page is such an honor to your dad/husband.

With love,

Ashley Harden Hill
