Miss Oklahoma’s Crown Stolen
STILLWATER, Okla. — Miss Oklahoma Betty Thompson is heartbroken after her crown was stolen out of her car last Sunday while moving into her new rental house.
Her father, Robert, said they initially thought it may have been a prank.
“After the hours passed and no one showed up saying ‘surprise,’ we realized this was the real thing, it was serious and that someone had taken the crown,” Robert said.
Betty’s family was in Stillwater helping her move boxes out of the car into the house, when the crown went missing.
The doors were unlocked for a brief moment while they tried to move her belongings into the house.
“I had a load of Betty’s belongings that we took into the house and just for that brief time period, she normally keeps her car locked, she’s very good about that,” Robert said.
Betty has been participating in pageants for years and has won several other awards which were also taken with the crown.
