Danielle Zimmerman Robbed Instead Of Helped After Suffering Brain Aneurysm At Taco Bell: Cops

Posted: Updated:

A woman who suffered a brain aneurysm at a Wichita, Kan., Taco Bell was robbed by a group of teens, according to police.

Danielle Zimmerman, 43, was getting dinner for her family on Dec. 29 when the aneurysm occurred, causing her to lose control of her truck and drive into the speaker box, the Wichita Eagle reported.

As Zimmerman lay unconscious, “instead of trying to help her, somebody robbed her," Zimmerman's husband of 21 years, Kris, told the paper. When help finally arrived, the woman's purse, iPhone and wedding ring were missing.

"How could you take somebody’s wedding ring off their finger?” Kris Zimmerman said.

Danielle Zimmerman died the next day, according to the Associated Press. She left behind two sons, aged 13 and 18.

Monday, police announced they arrested two 19-year-olds, Daquantrius Shaquill Johnson and Quanique Dontrell Thomas-Hameen, in the robbery. Later that day, a third suspect, 19-year-old Keith Byron Hickels Jr., turned himself in on an unrelated probation violation and also faces charges in the case.

All three were charged with robbery, KAKE reported. Thomas-Hameem was also charged with failure to appear in court and driving while suspended, while Johnson faced additional charges of firearm possession and probation violation.

Some of the stolen items have been recovered, but the wedding ring is still missing.
