Silent Woman Turns up in Kansas, Now Jailed

KSAL StaffMay 15, 2013

A Texas woman who’s been aimlessly roaming Hutchinson for several weeks, refusing to talk and rebuffing offers of help, now at least has shelter at the county jail after being arrested for criminal trespass.

Police Sgt. Eric Buller said that police have identified her as 52-year-old Theresa M. Thomas of Dallas. He says she arrived in the south-central Kansas city a month ago on a bus. She communicates only with an occasional note and has been “walking around like she was lost.”

Buller says the woman has taken a vow of silence and has turned down all offers of help.

She’s in the Reno County jail after being arrested Monday for trespassing. The judge entered a not guilty plea for her after she refused to answer questions.
