Grandma, 82, misses husband's funeral after she's brutally beaten in her home

FOX NEWS - An Arizona woman played dead for three hours late Friday night after she was attacked in her home the night before her husband’s funeral.

Her grandson, Jesse Leetham, said in a Facebook post that he was with his grandmother until 11 p.m. Friday. Shortly after he left, he said, someone entered the home, tapped her shoulder, hit her on the head with a glass, then beat and robbed her.

Leetham said his grandmother, who he described as strong and amazing, “laid on that floor in a pool of her own blood for three hours playing dead because she feared he would come back.”

It’s unclear what, if anything, was taken from the home.

The Gila County Sheriff’s Office reported that it received a report of an assault and burglary at about 3 a.m. Saturday morning. The woman said the attacker was a stocky male wearing a white ski mask. The woman was taken to the hospital and consequently missed her husband’s funeral later that day.

The GSCO asked anyone with information to contact Detective Keith Charles at 928-402-4211 or to remain anonymous to contact 1-800-782-7463.
