Remembering Robert Godwin, Sr.

A Philadelphia police officer created a portrait of Robert Godwin, Sr, the elderly Cleveland man murdered by the detestable Steve Stephens.

A beautiful work of art was made to remember Robert Godwin, Sr. Philadelphia Police Department forensic graphic artist Officer Jonny Castro created the portrait.

Philadelphia police posted the portrait of Godwin, Sr. on its Facebook page and said they are sharing it to spread an extremely important message.

“YOU – the public – are the best weapon we have in the fight against crime. Sure, that’s a cliche – but some cliches become cliches for a reason. FACT: Mr. Godwin’s killer is no longer a threat because a citizen picked up a phone and called police.” (H/T – Sully)

I figured we all needed a feel-good story after this violent, terrible week.
