McDonald’s worker who helped police catch serial killer gets reward – and it’s better than lifetime supply of Big Macs

The capture of the suspected Seminole Heights serial killer in Florida came about after a McDonald’s manager told the police she saw a loaded gun.

Howell Donaldson III, 24, an employee at the restaurant, was arrested on suspicion of murdering four people after manager Delonda Walker told an officer in the restaurant that Donaldson had handed her a bag containing a gun.

According to a criminal affidavit, that gun was used in four fatal shootings in the area.

Walker wasn’t motivated by personal gain, but she’s now being rewarded for her efforts. Richard Gonzmart, the owner of Ybor City’s Columbia Restaurant, hand delivered a $9,000 check on Thursday for “taking a monster off the streets.”

“I don’t think she did it for a reward,” a choked up Gonzmart told reporters afterwards. “That’s what makes it even more special.”

When Gonzmart said that he heard “people don’t want to pay her,” he was referencing reports that Crime Stoppers wouldn’t be paying Walker an advertised reward because she did not call the tip line directly.

Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay originally said Walker was not eligible, but the board of directors later approved a $5,000 reward to be paid, ABC affiliate WFTS reported.
