In 2019, we came to know the exploits of Charles Thrash and his long time gal pal, Laura Martinez.

On March 4, 2019, Charles Thrash married Laura Martinez in Saledo at the Black Swan Inn. On March 5, 2019, Laura Martinez Thrash presented her then-81-year-old husband, Charles Thrash, at an attorney’s office. Charles Thrash had previously been declared incapacitated in a Bexar County, Texas guardianship proceeding. At the law offices of Phil Ross, Charles Thrash was presented with documents to adopt Martinez’s adult children (Joe Martinez, then 27, and Brittainy Martinez, then 25). On March 6, 2019, Charles Thrash’s court appointed guardian, Mary Werner, arrived at the Thrash home in upscale Shavano Park, accompanied by four police officers. Werner removed Thrash from his home, and from the apparent clutches of Martinez.
