Texas police have arrested a shameless woman who walked into a funeral home and stole a ring from the finger of an 88-year-old dead woman. Kalynn Homfeld, 41, was taken into custody and is facing two years in prison after she was caught on surveillance swiping the jewelry from the corpse of Lois Hicks.
The shocking incident occurred around 5.30pm Friday at the Sunset Memorial Gardens and Funeral Home in Odessa. Police say the woman walked in asking to use the bathroom, however instead went into a viewing room and took the ring. The heartless thief then left, driving off in a red or maroon four-door Saturn. Homfled has been charged with theft from a human corpse.
Vel McKee, Hicks’ daughter, told the Odessa American that the family did not know the woman who took the ring from her mother’s hand. Mrs McKee also said that, in the process of ripping off the ring, the woman had tore skin from Hicks’ finger. ‘We had only been gone for 15 minutes,’ McKee told the newspaper. ‘It’s just heartbreaking.’ Lois Hicks passed away on April 7 in Odessa. A mother of 10, she is survived by eight of her children and many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Her funeral was held at the funeral home on Monday. She was to be buried at Sunset Memorial Gardens. Odessa police said Monday that they had received several tips about the theft but had yet to make an arrest. In the surveillance video, the woman is seen walking straight over the casket and then leaning into the body. She also appears to be talking to the corpse.
