When North Carolina resident Beth Feeback bought a painting for $9.99 at a Goodwill store, she had no idea she’d just scored a valuable work of art. Turns out, the painting was by a notable New York-based abstract artist and was worth in the range of $20,000.
Caleb Medley was one of the 58 people injured during last week’s horrific theater shooting in Colorado.
