I am writing today because of a very disturbing event that happened to friends of mine.
A friend of mine passed away recently and while the family was at the mortuary to make arrangements, someone cut through the deceased person’s gate, broke into his house, ransacked the place, and robbed the residence. The family does not know what is missing because they had not gone through his personal belongings yet. It is very difficult to get law enforcement to file a report if you don’t know what was stolen.
After doing a little research I have discovered that this is not uncommon. I would like to warn the public that when you have a death in the family, there are predators out there that will take advantage of the situation. The most common time to get robbed is during the funeral. Please have someone watch the house that you trust so that this doesn’t happen to you. Take inventory of the deceased person’s belongings ASAP so that you know what is there.
And as a note to the person or persons that committed this crime. You are really a piece of work. You stole from three girls. What you took could have helped pay for funeral expenses, or helped his grand-daughter he was raising. I have all kinds of names and mean thoughts for you.
