Thief snags Wake Forest widow’s jewelry while she attends husband’s funeral

March 7, 2019
A Wake Forest bride, now a widow, says this graduated pearl necklace was stolen while she was at her husband's funeral.

5 On Your Side’s Monica Laliberte learned this week of an all-time low: A thief who broke into a Wake Forest home, stealing from a widow while she was at her husband’s funeral.

We know of three cases in Raleigh and one in Wake Forest all since December.

Kathleen shared her story to warn others, and she hopes you recognize these family heirlooms to help her catch the thief.
