Elderly Woman Raped While Visiting Husband’s Grave

July 7, 1986

DALLAS (AP) _ A 70-year-old woman was raped, robbed and beaten in a cemetery where she was visiting her husband’s grave, police say.

The woman told officers that a young man who approached her and demanded money Sunday became angry when he found that she had very little cash.

The man struck her in the face, pushed her to the ground behind a tombstone and raped her, then fled with $7, some credit cards and her keys, officers said.

The woman was in shock and unable to provide more than sketchy details, said investigator Carolyn Hovey. She was treated for cuts and bruises at Parkland Memorial Hospital and released, Hovey said.
