The Bethel family of murder victim Emily Todd received an unexpected gift when the local Danbury Kia dealership this week paid off the remaining two year lease on the vehicle Ms. Todd drove to Bridgeport on the night of her murder and that the suspect then allegely stole.
According to published reports, a family member approached the Kia dealership to explain the situation. Upon hearing of their plight, General Sales Manager Sal Sinardi canceled the lease on the spot.
"It just felt like the right thing to do," said Mr. Sinardi. "I was heartbroken," he said. "I could see the pain on their faces."
Of his two sons who work with him at the dealership, Mr. Sinardi said "Hopefully they see this as an example of doing the right thing."
