The Worst Ohioan Has Been Found in Ontario

In March, Jesse Owens emerged from a field of 64 to be crowned as the greatest Ohioan. It turns out, we won't have to have a tournament to crown the worst Ohioan. That title was undoubtedly earned by an Ontario woman.

From CTV Edmonton News:

Police in Ontario, Ohio say they're looking for a woman who was captured on camera stealing a stuffed animal from a child's grave.

The child, Hayden “Tank” Cole Sheridan, died in 2007 and his parents say toys and solar night lights have been taken from the 14-month-old's gravesite ever since.

Hayden's parents first contacted police in 2012 and a hidden camera was subsequently  set up near the gravestone. While the footage showed a number of items disappear from the site, authorities were unable to capture a clear image of the suspect.

On April 19, a day before Easter, the surveillance footage clearly captured a woman taking a yellow stuffed duck from Hayden's gravestone approximately four to five hours after the family had placed the animal at the site.

According to 11Wer Brandonbauer87, the suspected lady has turned herself in and claimed there was a "dog in the area" and she "didn't want the dog to take the stuffed animal."

That's precious.
