God Himself is the judge of Tyrone, like He’s the judge of us. He was more than just a convict, more than just a man on the run. He was a person…of tremendous value. Ty was caught and paid a price on this earth. We look at people incarcerated and say they’ve been duly caught, tried, judged and condemned. All men have sinned and fallen short of God’s perfect ideal.

Reverend Rick Sheasby, Salvation Army, Belleville, at the funeral of Ty Conn, May 28, 1999, as reported by Kevin Hann“Escaped con ‘paid his price'”. Ottawa Sun, May 29, 1999: 7.
