NC - Woman Charged With Disrupting Funeral, Hitting Body
How horrible of this woman! Maybe she has mental issues?
A North Carolina woman shocked a mourning family when she showed up at a funeral and danced in front of them before opening the casket and striking the body, The Greenville News reported Thursday.
Nicole Leonard, 25, was charged with public disorderly conduct and disturbing a funeral after the incident, which occurred on Tuesday at the Church of God in Gray Court, N.C.
Family members told the paper that they had no idea who she was when she interrupted the service, dancing around and waving a wand around the casket. She then laid her hands on the corpse’s face and struck it with the wand.

I wouldn't jump the gun on her mental state yet. I never attended the funeral of the man who molested me. (it was a step father.. and my sister had to bury him without me there)... Because I knew I'd end up there and chances were good I'd make a scene listening to his wonderful life, blah blah blah.
Maybe this guy did something to this woman.Only my opinion, no one else need agree.

Here is her myspace page, her mugshot picture looked totally different than the one she has on my space. http://www.myspace.com/saint****ingtheresa
People attending the guys funeralspeak out on this video about what she done. You ca also see the mugshot.
She is a massage therapist, and was released from the Johnson Detention Center on Wednesday, according to jail officials and tickets.
She also has her own website.

I don't see any reason or evidence to support the idea that the deceased may have done anything to this woman. She didn't even live in the area! If her nutty behavior is going to bring about accusatory speculation about the dead man, then she did worse than disrupt the funeral.
"Deputies said Leonard told them she behaved the way she did because she "felt it was the right thing to do at the time." She said she was driving through the area from North Carolina and did not know anyone at the church."

I didn't read anything concerning abuse in this story. I'm not sure there that came from.
How sad that this family had to go through this. My goodness, I cannot imagine having anyone behave so horribly like this lady did. I don't think there are "mental" issues. I think she is just one angry woman. A scary and angry woman. Blech...."I went to the bank and asked to borrow a cup of money. They said, "What for?". I said, "I'm going to buy some sugar".

From Laura's second link:
"The sheriff tells us she will also undergo mental evaluations." Maybe they had suspicions too?

I just questioned that maybe there was a motive for her doing what she did.Only my opinion, no one else need agree.

I'm Not sure what she means by offering massage therapy on unprofessional levels. But I think it sounds bad personally.

Hoo boy. She's something else. I hope they can get her help after the eval.
ETA: Pattycake when I read the first article, the fact that she may have known the deceased crossed my mind too. For very simular reasons you stated. That was my first reaction to be honest. As always MHO.

Hmm maybe she did know him...
This reminds me of our old neighbor, her husband died suddenly in a car accident, next day she found out he had been cheating on her.
She found cards, letters etc...
So she goes to his funeral and punches him in his casket right in front of everyone.

It sounds to me like this woman has some mental health issues and I am glad she is being evaluated.I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!
