South Dakota authorities have returned a stolen Tennessee, tombstone discovered in Spearfish, SD and inscribed with the inscription, “We shall meet again.”
The words on S.J. Elliot’s 1888 tombstone matches those on his wife’s tombstone near Manchester, Tennessee. Elliot’s tombstone had been reported missing a month earlier to the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office, more than 1,300 miles from Spearfish.
Spearfish, SD Police Officer Kale Nelson says a resident found it in an alley during a motorcycle rally. The city’s cemetery determined that it came from Tennessee by using Google.
Nelson says it will probably remain a mystery how the tombstone traveled to Spearfish, SD. Police shipped the 60-pound stone back to Coffee County, where it arrived in two pieces. Authorities plan to have it restored and returned to its cemetery. (KDLT TV News)

Last Thursday evening, the owner of Leland’s furniture and Home Décor on Main Street in Woodbury had a gunman come into his store to apparently rob him. Behind the gun was a 13-year-old would-be robber and owner Rickey Smotherman made a bold decision to try to wrestle the gun from the teen’s hands.
Smotherman says the struggle spilled out of his store and onto the sidewalk and that’s when the suspect fired and ran off up the street.
That 13-year-old boy, whose name has not been released, ran away at that point. He was arrested a short time later at a nearby park. He’s now charged with attempted murder and aggravated robbery.
