Danielle and Kris Zimmerman with their two sons
According to police, 43-year-old Danielle Zimmerman suffered a brain aneurysm as she was traveling through a Taco Bell drive-thru lane on the evening of Dec. 29. Zimmerman was later taken to a local hospital where she died the next day.
Paramedics and police were dispatched to the scene after customers at the restaurant realized that something was wrong, rushed to Zimmerman's aid and called 911. But in the short time before Zimmerman received help, the three goons you see above allegedly paid her a visit first.
Investigators say at least three suspects robbed Zimmerman as she lay dying in her car. The thieves reportedly made off with Zimmerman's wedding ring, purse, cell phone and credit cards.
On Friday, Daquantrius Shaquill Johnson (left) and Quanique Dontrell Thomas-Hameen (center) were arrested after investigators received a tip through the Crime Stoppers hotline. Both suspects are 19 years old. Both suspects had been charged and convicted of burglary in the past.
A third suspect, 19-year-old Keith Byron Heckels Jr., (right) was arrested when he turned himself in for an unrelated probation violation.
"Unfortunately, the ring and some of the other property has not been recovered," said Wichita police Lt. Doug Nolte. "we are still looking for that. We are hopeful that we can get that property back in the right hands."
"I'm glad the tip line helped, and that people in the community are stepping up to help solve the crime and get these guys into custody and maybe help me get my wife's wedding ring back," said Danielle's husband, Kris Zimmerman.
Johnson was booked into jail and charged with robbery, criminal possession of a firearm and probation violation. He remains held in lieu of $315,000 bond.
Thomas-Hameen was booked into jail and charged with robbery, failure to appear and driving while suspended. He remains held in lieu of $200,500 bond.
