Byron Woman’s Bath Interrupted By Burglar

A spokesman says the woman recognized the voice.The man - 23 year old Austin DeRoo - had been at the home earlier in the week looking for the woman’s son. DeRoo said her son owed him money.
Before the woman could call 911, DeRoo went to the basement, grabbed an $800 TV set and left.
