Woman's Mugshot Goes Viral Because Of Her Eyes (Photo)


The mug shot of a Lancaster County, South Carolina, woman has gone viral because of her appearance.

Police arrested Morgan Joyce Varn, 24, and charged her with kidnapping, armed robbery and property damage, according to The Charlotte Observer.

In the mug shot, Varn has blonde hair, a pale forehead covered in tattoos and the whites of her eyes appear to be black. She may have had them tattooed and the result makes them look like reflective glass.

On Facebook, KVVU said on April 28 the image was one that would "haunt your nightmares."

Varn's arrest came after a SWAT situation in Indian Land, The Charlotte Observer reports. She and Jonathan Mikael Robinson, 23, were arrested after an hours-long standoff with police.

“I’m not coming out, and unless you have a search warrant you are not coming in, so go away!” Varn said during SWAT negotiations, according to a police report.

Eventually, officers had to go into the home to remove Varn, Robinson and another woman.

“We had three people and a pistol inside that home and for hours did everything we could to get them to come out,” Lancaster County Sheriff Barry Faile said. “When they didn’t, we had to go in and get them. Fortunately, no weapons were discharged and nobody was hurt.”

Police charged Robinson with kidnapping and armed robbery.

​In April 2015, police helped Varn give birth, Trent Faris, spokesman for the York County Sheriff's Office, said.

Her water broke at around 3 a.m. She rushed to get to the hospital, but did not have enough time.

"I knew we wouldn't make it," Varn told The Herald at the time. "I was panicking."

After calling 911 for an ambulance, Varn and her boyfriend Michael Saunders Jr. went to a fire station and banged on the door for help.

“I couldn’t get anybody, and I thought I was gonna be the one delivering my daughter right there in the parking lot,” Saunders said at the time.

However, two deputies on the other side of the building came to their aide.

“I was writing up the report when two very upset individuals came driving up very quickly toward my patrol car,” deputy Blake Haynes said. “The guy driving was desperately asking for help, that the young lady next him was going into labor.”

The deputy called an ambulance, which arrived before Varn gave birth. However, the baby girl arrived while en route to the hospital.

“She was born right there in the ambulance,” Varn said. “And she is perfect,” Saunders added.

Varn is being held without bond at the Lancaster County jail.
