Kris Zimmerman landed a surprise ally Tuesday in his efforts to get his late wife Danielle’s wedding ring back: Wichita Mayor Carl Brewer.
The mayor, speaking at a City Council meeting, asked city residents to find Danielle Zimmerman’s wedding ring, which was stolen after she suffered a brain aneurysm Dec. 29 at a fast-food restaurant. She died the next day.
Brewer also wants people to understand that what happened to Zimmerman “isn’t what we do in Wichita ... it’s something that just isn’t acceptable.
“It’s horrible. That’s all you can say. It’s horrible,” he said. “It’s taking low to a whole new level.”
“Well, that’s just great that he would do that,” Kris Zimmerman said about the mayor’s comments. “I had no clue that was going to happen.
