Kevin Vickers' Act Of Kindness Shows The Kind Of Guy He Is

My boss might have felt that Kevin Vickers wrote that letter because he thought I'd feel beholden to him, or the police, or that I'd cover their stories more favourably. I don't think so though.

He's a negotiator with a kind, fatherly smile, and a seemingly genuine desire to help.
