Police: Wedding ring worth $65,000 stolen from Winona nursing home patient


A 93-year-old nursing home patient in Winona no longer has her $65,000 wedding ring on her finger and police are investigating it as a theft case, reports say.

The Winona Daily News says an employee at St. Anne Extended Healthcare noticed the ring missing on Wednesday and reported it to police then. The last time it was known to be on the woman's finger, the newspaper reports, was Sunday evening – Valentine's Day.

Police described it as a distinctive ring with a four carat diamond in the center surrounded by three platinum bands each set with smaller diamonds. They supplied a photo to the Star Tribune (right).

A spokeswoman for Benedictine Health Services, which operates St. Anne, told the Star Tribune residents and their families have the option of having their valuables secured in a vault.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Winona Police Department at 507-457-6492.
