He was nice to take me on dates and wanted to get us to the state softball tournament.” The tipster continues: “He wanted to give her money to win a pair of sunglasses, and his vision was just not good. I could see his eyes starting to blur. I got upset because I knew she couldn’t be that way and needed some kind of confidence boost. But once she understood I wasn’t being abusive. At that point, she told me to leave.” CHERYL ISEAU
