This is in Utah
CLEARFIELD, UTAH (ABC 4 News) -a Clearfield woman and her husband are offering a reward for the return of stolen property. But this is not just any property; this is the heart-shaped urn containing their stillborn daughter’s ashes. It was taken from their home on Monday.
The Workmans say initially the break-in looked routine. Mike says the thief started by breaking several panes of glass in the back door. The burglar eventually went through a basement bedroom window; but not just any bedroom. This was the baby’s room. Alicia Workman says no one had been in there for a month, since Ayza was born without life. "Just alone going in there and seeing all of the glass in her room is upsetting enough."
Alicia called her husband and the police. “I started looking around and the TV was still here and you know the things that I thought that they would take." Nothing appeared to be missing. Then she walked to the piano. “I walked over to here and said thank goodness, they didn't touch anything and then I noticed her urn was missing."
Ayza’s ashes were in a pink and silver heart-shaped urn on the piano, next to a small memorial. Alicia says "We just thought that one fit for a little girl, it was the prettiest one we had seen for her. She does have our heart.”
They say perhaps it was mistaken for a jewelry box. The digital camera with pictures from the memorial is also missing. “The camera you can replace, those pictures and her urn you can't replace those items." The couple says they just want them back. No questions asked. Alicia says "If you have to, if you want to remain anonymous, put it in the mail box something. Just give it back please."
Alicia says losing her daughter twice is unimaginable. “I can’t talk, I cry all of the time, and my anxiety is at an all time high. It’s devastating to us.”
Mike says reliving a tragedy is taking at toll on the family, which also includes two small boys, but it has been the hardest on his wife. “It's been horrible, especially for her, because it was a lifelong dream really to have this baby girl and to see her taken again is just too much."
The Workman's agree that while this is a bizarre crime, and seems personal, they don't know anyone who would do something like this to them. There is a reward worth hundreds of dollars available for the return of the urn with their daughter’s ashes. Those who would like to contribute to the reward fund may do so at Mountain America Credit Union, under the name of Ayza Workman.
|Sad. And very odd. Hope it all works out for them.|
|I'm at a loss for words and just wanted you to know your family will be in my thoughts. I'm so sorry for this devestating loss and hope that the little babe's urn will be returned. |
|The reward is now up to $1000 |
The family ( her husbands) has all boys.
Alicia's first 2 also are boys.
To have a girl baby was going to be so great!
Why would someone do this?
|So very sad. Special thoughts for you and your daughter's family.|
