[Located] Handcrafted Memorial Cross Stolen From Remote Mountain Road; Family Heartbroken as Victim’s Birthday Approaches
This week, a brother is heartbroken as the handmade cross and candleholder he created for his brother’s memorial after his brother died in a fatal accident last December was stolen. Christina Arredondo said her husband, Jose Arredondo, crafted the unique items and, with the help of friends, placed them last December at the site of his 28-year-old brother Martin’s deadly crash on Chemise Mountain Road.
Christina Arredondo said that the cross was still there at 8:30 Sunday evening, according to a neighbor. But by the time her husband drove out Monday at 8 a.m., the Memorial was gone.
“Only a LED candle that someone has stepped on was left,” she explained.
If anyone has any information, please call (707) 223-2050.
“Martin’s birthday is October 3. [I]t would be amazing if we could get it back before then!” Christina said.
UPDATE: The memorial has been recovered.
