The Craziest Story You’ll Hear All Day!

Somewhere, MAURY POVICH’s head just exploded.

60-year-old Valerie Spruill of Doylestown, Ohio has just gone public with a pretty shocking story:  Her dead husband was also her FATHER.  And she didn’t find out until after he died.

Valerie married Percy Spruill without knowing he’d also knocked up her mother when he was 15.  Her mother died in 1984.  Valerie says some of her relatives must’ve known, but no one ever told her.

She hasn’t said how long she and Percy were married . . . but they did have THREE KIDS together.  Meaning she was her kids’ mother AND their half-sister.

Valerie doesn’t know for sure if Percy KNEW he was her father . . . she suspects he did, but was afraid to tell her.  He died in 1998.  In 2004, one of her uncles told her the truth.  She found Percy’s comb, and used his hair to get a DNA test to prove it.

Now, eight years later, she says she’s coming forward to let people know that even if you find yourself in a horrible situation, you can pull through and, quote, “lead a good, productive, fulfilling life.”
