Man, 81, learns he has an only son after discovering letter his dead wife hid 50 years ago

Tony Trapani and Samuel Childress 
By: Feng Qian

(Scroll down for video) A man was devastated to learn that he has an only son, who he never knew.

The 81-year-old man of Michigan, learned about his son, who he met recently for first time.

Tony Trapani of Grand Rapids, was cleaning some files after the death of his wife when he discovered a letter written over 50 years ago.
The letter was sent by his son’s mother. The woman wrote the letter to reveal that she had given birth to a son, and he was the father.

When his son, Samuel Childress, who is now 61 years old, was a child he was told that his father wanted nothing to do with him after Trapani did not respond to the letter.

However, the truth was that Trapani never received the letter, as his wife intercepted it and hid it for all these years.

Trapani said that his wife was unable to have children of her own, and therefore, she might have hidden the fact that he has a biological son.

Trapani still seems to resent his late wife’s decision, no matter what her motivation may have been.

Childress - who grew up in Pennsylvania, and had long ago resigned himself to the fact that he had been abandoned by his father - was happy to learn that he was not abandoned, but that his father never knew he existed.

“I always asked my mother what my father looked like,” Childress said.

“She said: ‘Well, go look in the mirror,’” he added.

While the two men are enjoying their time together, they are still planning a paternity test just to make sure this news is not too good to be true.

Christina Marie Searcy, 36, of Texas, reportedly panicked when police pulled over the car she was riding in.

In an attempt to hide the meth pipe, she shoved it inside her private parts. However, the act backfired and it ended in an embarrassing trip to the emergency room.

The incident took place on Friday around 6:00 p.m. Searcy was arrested along with three other friends after a Montgomery County deputy responded to a report of fraud committed by them.

The friends were accused of writing bad checks and were handcuffed. Deputies said that they smelled marijuana in the car, and when the driver Kevin Hales, 20, exited the vehicle, a joint allegedly fell out of the car.

Police searched the car, and the personal belongings of the driver and passengers. They allegedly found several bags of cocaine.

Hales and his three passengers, Searcy, Kimberly Kinn, and Melanda Robertson, were arrested.

Before going to the prison, police warned them that if they had drugs on their bodies they would face additional charges of smuggling contraband into jail.

At that point, Kinn revealed that she had a drug pipe in her bra, which tested positive for methamphetamine.

Searcy then admitted to having a pipe in her private parts. Officers allowed her to try to remove it, but she discovered to her dismay that it was stuck inside her.

An ambulance was called and Searcy was taken to the emergency room, where doctors removed it successfully. Her drug pipe also tested positive for methamphetamine.

A thief attempted to rob a shop by covering his face and stuffing his mouth.

Douglas Stewart, 48, of England, glued pieces of tissue on his face to disguise himself.

He also placed tissues in his mouth to try to hide his Scottish accent.

However, he was immediately recognized as he was a regular at the business that he was trying to rob. Stewart entered a betting shop in Torquay, Devon, with his disguise, but the teller recognized him instantly.

Stewart handed the teller a note with his demands for money. Ironically, the demands were written on a letter, which the business had earlier sent Steward, stating that he was no longer welcome at their place of business.

Stewart raided the shop around 8:30 a.m., and handed the note to the teller demanding money. When the woman recognized him, she warned him that she was calling the police.

Stewart fled, but was arrested shortly thereafter.

Stewart pleaded guilty to attempted robbery. Defense attorney Paul Dentith said that his client is a heroin addict and the raid was a cry for help and not a robbery attempt.

However, Judge Phillip Wassall said that he poses a risk to the public. Stewart was jailed for three years and eight months.
