Top North Port police officials said that their agency handled the case appropriately, and that they would not have done anything differently had the victim been one of their family members.
"As a professional looking at it, yes, I would be satisfied," said North Port Police Chief Terry Lewis, who was out of town when Lee was kidnapped. He returned two days later. "As a dad or as a husband or as a family member, when your daughter doesn’t come home, you’re never satisfied.
"I’m confident in the response."
He noted that officials captured the man who allegedly kidnapped, raped and murdered Lee. And they found Lee’s body.
