MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities have been looking for two men who flew a Madison woman to St. Louis, and stole an expensive ring she was trying to sell on Craigslist.
KMOV-TV in St. Louis said 32-year-old Emily Graham of Madison placed the ad, and then heard from a St. Louis man who offered to buy the ring for $19,000. He paid for her flight to St. Louis, and had a car waiting at the airport.
Graham apparently thought the driver would take her to a jeweler. Instead, she was driven to a deserted area where a second man pounded her in the head -- and then took her ring, laptop computer, shoes, and purse.
Police say they have a person of interest, but as of mid-day, no arrests had been made in the case.
