Are Botched 911 Calls to Blame for Denise Lee's Death?

"Frankly, my own opinion, and it's only mine, I don't think it would have changed the outcome one bit, simply because we had people in the area looking for the exact vehicle," Davenport said.

He stands by his dispatchers and said it was a tragedy for his department, especially because Lee's father has worked in the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office for more than 20 years. The dispatchers who failed to relay the 911 call were disciplined. One was suspended for 60 hours, the other 36 hours, and both were ordered to take 12 hours of remedial training.

Meanwhile, Nathan has moved out of their North Port home with his two boys. He tries to live for the happy moments he should have had with his wife and family.

"I was supposed to spend the rest of my life with her. And ... there wasn't a doubt in my mind, wasn't a doubt in hers. The best four years of my life, I'm sure. For my whole life," Nathan said.

Nathan wants the death penalty for King and intends to sue Charlotte County for mistakes he says the sheriff's department made on the day his wife died.

"If I was in that situation ... I don't know what I would have done," he said. "She did everything she could. Denise did everything in her power to save her life."
