No eyes were dry in the house.
A naturally shy Karo Hamilton slipped into the limelight Monday night to deliver a gut-wrenching message about the ordeal she’s been through.
She stood at the podium in the Best Western’s Snow Goose conference room in downtown Sheridan to thank the community for its generous offer to rebuild her eastside home, which was ripped apart last week during a 32-hour police standoff to get a barricaded intruder pried out.
She, and her demolished home that looks like it’s been hit by a tornado, have been thrust into the local spotlight, though that’s not where she ever wanted to be.
For Hamilton, it’s not a sure thing to file an insurance claim to collect rebuild money for her house. That’s what lawyers and claims adjusters are telling her.
The city of Sheridan is expected to release her property located at 1050 N. Sheridan Ave.
