Robert A. Van Reeth is the major of the Internal Affairs Division of the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office. His wife, Laurie Van Deusen, is the god mother of Gunner Miller, the (bastard??) child of Det. Victoria Miller. Some suggest that Major Van Reeth used his position to hide the fact Victoria Miller was having an affair with Sgt. Michael Custer on the property of Seth Adams when Adams was killed by Custer late at night.
Major Van Reeth is no stranger to questionable ethics and behavior. In 2012, photos emerged of what is said to be a drug and prostitute fueled golfing event, where Major Van Reeth was photographed with a naked prostitute on a Palm Beach County golf course. This prostitute was witnessed snorting vials of Cocaine during the event and was later witnessed by the event's bartender to be providing blow jobs to the various men at the golfing event.
When the photos emerged, Sheriff Bradshaw stated he could not regulate what employees of the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office did on their own time, a position he took only when his friend, Major Robert Van Reeth appeared in these photos.
His son, shown in the photo in the yellow shirt, was allegedly 17 at the time this photo was taken, making Major Van Reeth a felon that, by all standards in the State of Florida, should be a registered sexual offender. Following in his father's unwaveringly-ethical footsteps, his son is now a deputy with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

Even a parody video was made from the event.
