Playing Grave Situation: Woman Finds Tombstone on Her Front Lawn

A California woman got the shock of her life Monday when she stepped out of her home to throw away the trash — and found a tombstone resting on her front lawn.

Donna Robert made the shocking discovery Monday morning on her Stevenson Ranch property.

"I’m like, 'That looks like a tombstone,'" the stunned homeowner told CBS Los Angeles. "The stone was shiny and I could see the word Timothy, and I didn’t look any more."

When she ran back inside, she alerted her family and checked the security cameras. Nothing showed up in the footage and she says the stone was never there before.

She called 911 and police arrived to check out the scene and called local cemeteries to see if they were missing a stone plot. The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Department told InsideEdition.com that none claim to have anything missing or vandalized tombstones.

The Sheriff’s Department released the images of the tombstone on Twitter Tuesday evening.

"We are befuddled as to where it came from and as of now it is recorded as 'found property,'" Sgt. Dan Peacock of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Department told InsideEdition.com.

Commenting on the mystery surrounding the case, Sgt. Peacock said, "In my 28 years [in law enforcement] nothing is strange anymore."

Officials are still working to find who would place the tombstone on Robert’s property.

She told CBS that she hopes it finds its proper resting place.
