World: This Good Samaritan rapist-catcher is a true class act

  • With the state that the girl was in after the incident, I really felt that it would go towards making her life a lot better over the next couple of years.
  • Lloyd Gardner • On giving up a huge reward to the victim of the crime. Gardner offered a key piece of evidence that solved a 2006 rape. He was offered a £10,000 reward for leading to the rapist’s conviction, but he deferred it to the victim. Class act. Gardner says, if he kept the money, he likely would have spent the money on “an expensive car or something which doesn’t seem right.” • source
