Twelve-year-old Walter Sheehan of Odessa, Texas, awoke to
the sound of noises coming from his parents' bedroom. With both his
mother and father away at work, Sheehan became suspicious and
decided to investigate. He confronted a stranger who had taken some

intruder, who, along with an accomplice, hastily fled. Walter
promptly called 911 and waited for the police. "I'm glad he did what
he did. Walter's my hero," his mother said.
