In October 2015, 92-year-old David Garrett called police. He believed someone was taking money out of his investment accounts. Miami Police Officer Johnny Fonseca was dispatched to Garrett’s home, where the elderly, dementia-addled man showed him documents that put Garrett’s assets at more than $1 million.
Fonseca never filed a police report about Garrett’s suspicions. But before the man’s death a couple of months later, the officer did write a will declaring himself executor and sole beneficiary of Garrett’s estate.
