STANFORD (CBS SF) — The woman known as Mistress #6 to golfing legend and Stanford alumnus Tiger Woods had expensive gifts and photos stolen from her apartment in a burglary, sources told CBSSanFrancisco.com on Thursday.
Cori Rist told police a $20,000 watch that was a “gift,” presumably from Woods, and a computer containing photographs – apparently of her and the golfer – were recently taken by a thief or thieves during a burglary. The break-in occurred at the apartment where she now resides in Perrysburg, Ohio, according to police records.
Rist later told investigators that she discovered a second watch, valued at $10,000, was also missing following the burglary. She also acknowledged leaving her apartment unlocked, sources said.
Rist, 31, described by the New York Post newspaper as a Manhattan party girl, moved back to her native Ohio following the Woods saga in which the married golfer was publicly linked to sexual affairs with dozens of women.
Rist, who had been married to a New York investor but is now a single mother, became involved with Woods after meeting him in an NYC nightclub. She said the affair lasted 2 1/2 years and described Woods as being “not happy” with his marriage and home life.
In media interviews, Rist described sex with Woods as being “passionate, like fireworks” and added that he liked to eat breakfast cereal and watch cartoons on TV following their trysts, which usually took place in Woods’ hotel suite.
In her discussions about the recent thefts with police, sources said Rist didn’t provide them with any further details about the origins of the stolen gifts or content of the computer photos. No arrests had been made as of Thursday.
