After getting a call at a drug den, a drug officer in Virginia figured it would be another typical work day when he might make a few arrests. However, what he found in the back bedroom of the house changed his life forever, prompting him to return to this run-down house on a regular basis.
Lt. Scott Keller of the Hampton Police Department was informed of a home in his town that was riddled with drug activity. Several men living inside were initially the focus of the officer’s investigation, but that quickly changed when Keller opened a back door to the bedroom and found out what became his ten-year mission.
While the suspects took drugs down the hellhole every day, their aging mother, Francis, was being held captive in her own home. The sick woman was bedridden and helpless to the criminal activities surrounding her as she was physically confined to the bedroom. Finding her there, Keller was heartbroken by her unfathomable circumstances and they formed an instant friendship.
Francis had called the police to her home as a last resort because she didn’t know what else to do since her sons didn’t want to help her. Seeing her plight, Keller vowed to be her protector, not just for that day, but until her death. The officer diligently came to her house to check on her and over time gained her trust enough that she gave him a key to her house. Francis also authorized the officer to enforce any criminal violations he found upon entry during his frequent unannounced visits.
The police officer’s devotion to Francis ultimately resulted in a complete elimination of all criminal activity at the residence and restored peace to his friend. “She didn’t feel like a prisoner in her own home anymore,” Keller wrote on social media of his time with her, which ended tragically.
After ten years of friendship with Francis and regular home visits, nature took its course and the sick woman went to heaven. However, Keller is still a part of her family as he has been in close contact with her daughter since the woman’s death.
It was no coincidence that Keller was sent to Francis’ home a decade ago. He was exactly the cop who was meant for the job of being this woman’s only friend and advocate. When her sons took advantage of their poor health to do drugs in their home and live there for free, an angel stepped in and provided their much-needed safety and reprieve.
