Man Whose Wife Was Killed In Walmart Shooting Has Car Stolen And Damaged
Antonio Basco, the man who lost his wife in the August 3 Walmart massacre and moved an entire nation to tears when he asked for the public to come to his wife's funeral, is now dealing with another blow just hours after he laid his wife to rest.
Antonio's wife Margie Reckard, was one of the victim's of the terrible tragedy that took place at the Cielo Vista Walmart just two weeks ago. He touched so many people when he revealed that he had no family and she had very little family, but no one in El Paso, to come to her funeral. He told Perches Funeral Home that he wanted to open her funeral to the public. Their social media post about Antonio's plight resulted in hundreds of people showing up to her services on Friday and Saturday to show their support for him and Margie.
Sadly, that show of support did not extend to the horrible person who stole Antonio's car and wrecked it. A social media post from a woman who said her husband towed the car read:
"Mr. Antonio Basco's vehicle was stolen and wrecked sometime between him receiving it back from CASA and yesterday night. The car was found and towed by my husband back to his house this morning. WTF is wrong with people!? He just buried his wife yesterday and now this s*!t. This is the same vehicle CASA just completely serviced and repaired for him. He told my husband that whoever took it also stole a pressure washing machine from a small trailer he used to use for mobile car washing.SHARE!!"
Neither the El Paso Police Department nor Antonio has commented on the social media post.
