I took that 911 call that sent Deputy Hintergardt to that call on that day. I felt so guilty for many years thinking maybe if I had asked 1 more question things would of been different. To this day I sometimes still wonder. I'm recently retired from the department and he's still in my nightly prayers as are many other deputies we've lost. RIP Sir.
