Old Widow Is Mugged At Husbands Grave, Then A Horrified Teen Recognizes His Dad In The Mugshot

By  | 

78-year-old Tona Herdon was heartbroken when her husband of 60 years passed away. Visiting his gravesite was emotional enough, but she never expected an ordinary trip to the Oklahoma cemetery would take a terrifying turn.

Two weeks after her husband died, Tona went to mourn over his grave marker when a complete stranger walked up behind her and mugged her while her eyes were closed.

The man stole Tona’s bag and ran away with $700.

News of the crime quickly circulated throughout Tona’s community, along with the thief’s mugshot. How could someone be so cruel and heartless?

15-year-old named Christian Lunsford happened to be watching the news when a segment about the theft aired and he made a shocking realization. The man who robbed Tona was Christian’s own estranged father.

That’s when Christian did something no one expected, not even Tona. I won’t give it away, but I will say her story went viral a second time, but for a completely different reason. A much better reason, too.
