WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Members of the Wichita Crime Commission are offering a $2,000 reward for the return of the wedding ring stolen last month from an unconscious woman at a fast-food restaurant.
The robbery has sparked widespread outrage. The reward announcement Friday was attended by the dying woman's husband and Wichita leaders.
Danielle Zimmerman was pulling into a Taco Bell on Dec. 29 when she suffered a brain aneurysm. While unconscious, someone took her purse, a cellphone and wedding ring. The 43-year-old Wichita woman died the following day.
Her husband, Kris Zimmerman, said Friday that he should have been the last one holding his wife's hand while she was dying, not someone stealing the ring off her finger. He says finding the ring would help bring closure to the family.
