Deputy District Attorney Michael Blake recognized Amy Harder for her courageous actions at a Rotary Club of Westchester meeting. On July 2, 2011, Ms. Harder witnessed her boyfriend kill his two roommates and hide their bodies. Within days, the victims’ families filed missing person reports but police had no leads. Ms. Harder feared for her safety yet called police to report the slayings. She led them to the victims’ bodies. The suspect believed that Ms. Harder had notified police and threatened to kill her and her family. Despite the threats, Ms. Harder worked with police to find her ex-boyfriend. When he called her for a ride, Ms. Harder agreed to pick him up and alerted police. As police followed them, the suspect ordered Ms. Harder to evade authorities. Instead, she pulled over, took the keys and ran. The man fled on foot while shooting at officers. Later that day, he was arrested following a shootout with police. The defendant was convicted in January 2015 of murder and assault upon a peace officer. He was sentenced in March 2015 to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
