Arizona burglars steal box holding baby’s ashes

Parents plea:  Return remains of twin boy who died in 1996

 

PEORIA, Ariz. - An Arizona family is pleading with burglars to return a wooden music box containing the ashes of their 5-month old son.

The Peoria family came home Thursday afternoon and found the garage door open and the house ransacked. The burglars stole electronics and a wooden music box.

Inside the box were the ashes of 5-month-old Tyler. His mother, Lindsay Grannis, says he died in 1996; she laid him down for a nap with his twin brother and "he just never woke up."

The family says the box has no monetary value and they're willing to make a deal.

If the ashes are returned to any Peoria or Phoenix fire station, the burglars can keep the rest of the stolen items.

Police say they believe the burglars got inside the home using a universal garage door remote. 

 

As a mother who has lost a child, this is by far the worst crime I could ever imagine with my child's ashes. I cannot fathom the pain the family is going through and honestly, I hope the criminals involved give back the music box with the baby's ashes. This story honestly breaks my heart because even in a burglary, a child's ashes are not even safe. It makes you wonder how desperate people are for that extra dollar.
