An elderly lady who lived in a nursing home received a manicure a few weeks before she passed away. During the funeral her daughter noticed the wedding ring was missing. She always wore the ring and promised the ring to her daughter upon her death. The police were contacted along with a Kansas City Private Investigator Jeff J. McDonald. A thorough interview was conducted with the daughter and all known employees surrounding the elderly lady. A canvass was also conducted of local pawn shops using a picture of the ring. The ring was located just a few miles away at a pawn shop along with a suspect name. The thief turned out to be a female that provided manicures to the nursing home. She claimed she found the ring on the ground. The authorities are charging her with theft. The family heirloom is now safely back with the daughter.
