Hi there. I’m glad Officer Newton hasn’t been forgotten. You may not know me, but I am his former stepson and felt the urge to look him up again. That day was probably one of the worst days of my life as a child. Be that as it may, it was even worse on my Mom. She was married to him not even for 6months before this happened. May his soul Rest In Peace. In three days will be the 11th year anniversary of his death and I was just hoping the world hasn’t forgotten
