Authorities say a Texas woman was arrested and charged with mistreatment of a body two years after she threw her ex-ashes boyfriend’s mother’s into Lake Worth, northwest of Fort Worth.

Boyfriend mother ashes

According to the Fort Worth Police Department, Augustine Gladney, 40, poured the ashes of Ernest Smith’s mother into the lake in 2020 and was charged with the felony on May 4, according to NBCDFW.

According to the Fort Worth police report, abuse of a body is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by a $4,000 fine and up to a year in prison in Texas.

Smith, according to records,

On June 3, 2020, he reported his late mother’s urn missing from the home he and Gladney shared. He claims he overheard Gladney and her daughter admitting to the act.

Gladney allegedly texted Smith later, confessing to what she had done.

Police urged Smith to keep track of all text messages he had with the woman as evidence.

The case has gotten a lot of attention thanks to a viral video on social media in which a lady throws the ashes and then the urn into a river with the remark, “He cheated therefore I tossed his mum ashes in the river.”

Because the crime was conducted two years ago, authorities have not established that the woman in the video is Gladney.

The video was a comedy based on Gladney’s behavior, according to social media sleuths.

“That is the true story,” one user stated. A different woman appears in each video. In any case, it’s revolting, but yeah.”

“This skit is fake but there is a real woman who has done this unfortunately,” said another.

Many news outlets say that the incident occurred just last week, based on a recent video that has gone viral on TikTok and Twitter.

Gladney is a clinical office specialist at The College of Health Care Professions, according to her LinkedIn profile.

It’s unknown whether Gladney is still being held.
