FLORISSANT, MO (KTVI) - Sacred Heart Cemetery in Florissant is where Angie’s father was laid to rest less than three weeks ago.

Her mother went to visit her late husband on Monday, what would have been his birthday.

“She took his truck to go see him and bring him flowers,” said Angie

According to Angie, as her mom was at her father’s gravesite, a man approached not once, but twice, trying to console her.

“Brought her a flower, said ‘I'm so sorry’ and ‘I’ll let you grieve in peace’, then went back to the grave he was pretending to visit,” said Angie.

As her mother turned away, Angie says the man jumped in the truck and took off through the cemetery, driving over graves to get away.

The truck is a 2013 maroon Chevy Silverado.

The extended cab has mismatched front mirrors, one maroon and one silver, a missing window rain guard, and so many memories.

“Mom drives that car she feels him there. It smells like him still. She wants it back,” Angie said.

Inside the truck, there was a laptop, purse with credit cards and an ID as well as documents related the man’s death.

Angie asked that FOX 2 only use her first name for some extra privacy at this very difficult time.

Florissant Police are investigating.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Florissant Police Department at 314-831-7000.
