My dad is Billy Fowler. He is the detective in the book who was the contact for the police officer who was killed. This was very hard on my dad for so long. He was dedicated to his job, loved what he did and took it very seriously. I remember when he passed. The little church in Midlothian could not contain all the people and service people who were there, most were standing on the lawn. As the procession moved through town I will never forget passing the fire department. The flag was at half mast and the fire department was out front saluting my dad as he passed by. As we passed through the town square the people lined both sides of the street to say farewell to him. I miss him terribly. He was a great man. At his funeral a fellow officer stated that if he had been on the case of the fugitive, David Jansen wouldn't have stood a chance. Now that's the truth!
