The Stories The Media Doesn't Care About: Elderly Woman Beaten, Raped in Home Invasion, Leaving D-Day Hero Husband a Widower

In Tulsa, Oklahoma. Corrected: I thought this was Tampa, Florida.

An 85-year-old woman was sexually assaulted and battered to death by a home invader who also shot her 90-year-old husband in the face with a BB gun.

Nancy and Bob Strait, who had celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary in December, were discovered by their daughter at their home in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Both the pensioners were rushed to hospital where Mrs Strait, who was nearly blind, died from her injuries.

One rapist/home invader/murderer is in custody, but others are at large.

The home invaders made off with their Dodge Neon, a television and $200.

And a life. And, most likely, another life too.

CEO of "RangerUp" wants Bob Strait's story told, and he wants the media to let them know they care. In particular, he's asking Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert to call Bob Strait.

From RangerUp's YouTube description:

To support the Strait Family directly, please donate to:
