TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A local woman celebrated a very special birthday today more than a century after she was born.
Mary Brown turned 104 Thursday in her Terre Haute home. When we caught up with her she was reading through cards from friends and family.
Born in 1908, Brown says she has a secret to living well into her hundreds.
"My secret being honest, I don't think it gets much better than that, being honest," Mary told us.
Mary was surrounded by not only her grandchildren but also some great grandchildren.
UPDATE: Around 9 a.m. on Saturday, the Terre Haute Police Department responded to the Statesman Inn room 144 at 1407 N 3rd Street. Officers found Randall Norton Jr, 21, with multiple stab wounds to his back and abdomen.
The Washington Police Department responded Friday around 2 a.m. to a complaint of a male subject being shot. The incident happened on Oak Grove Road in Washington near Ebenezer Baptist Church.
