Family of John Winkler Seeks $25 Million

John Winkler, who was being held hostage by a murderous nutjob in a West Hollywood apartment, was shot and killed by L.A. County Sheriff's Deputies as he was escaping the nutjob earlier in April. His parents have filed a claim for $25 million. The family's attorney says that someone had shown the Deputies a photo of the actual nutjob before they went into the situation.
