CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WAND) - Police are recognizing a homeless person's $10 gift in support of fallen officer Chris Oberheim's family.
Two $5 bills were sent in an anonymous letter to Champaign Police Chief Anthony Cobb. In the donor's letter, which Champaign police posted to Facebook, the person they have lived in their car for the last three years, but wanted to send something to help.
"I am so sorry about what happened," the donor said.
The donor signed their letter with a single initial. Two initials were on the top left of the envelope. Police blacked those out on the picture, but said they plan to use this information to confirm the donor's identity.
The Oberheim family wants to connect with this person directly, police said. They added Cobb "extends his heartfelt appreciation for your support."
Anyone who knows the identity of the person is asked to message police privately on Facebook.
"To whoever penned this note, we hope to hear from you soon!" police said.
