    I’m not sure if this is the same Scott Heckel but it would be one heck of a coincidence – see link below.

    This one has active warrants in Marshfield, WI for OWI and failure to appear and he too is 44 years old. In either case, the loser(s) need(s) some serious prison time.

    I can’t even imagine the pain that this guy has caused for the Moris family for their losses. It’s senseless and horrible.
