Ohio woman discovers husband is her father

AKRON, OH (FOX19) - An Ohio woman has discovered that her late husband was actually her father.

Valerie Spruill, of Doylesville, Ohio, told the Akron Beacon Journal that she discovered the family secret in 2004.

She said she learned the secret from an uncle shortly after her husband/father, Percy Spruill, died.

Spruill says she has DNA tests to prove the relationship and has been working with a therapist since she found out. She believes Percy was aware of what happened but was afraid to tell her.

She said she came forward with her story to maybe find long lost siblings and show others that even in miserable situations, they can still lead productive and fulfilling lives.
