Harlow: Ashes Of Stab Victim Stolen
Distraught relatives of a woman who died in July have appealed to a thief to return her ashes after they were stolen in a burglary.
Ebony Parish returned home to also find a memorial card and photographs of Miss Parrish had been taken from the top of her bedside cabinet.
"I was absolutely horrified when I saw that the pot was missing. It was a terrible shock when I realised that someone had broken in.
"Only two things were taken - a television and the pot containing the ashes. Why, why, why did the thief have to take the pot. Surely he must have realised that it was something very special because there was a memorial card and photos of Claire beside it.
"She has been taken once from us and now she has been taken again.
"My Mum and Dad, my two sisters, my brother and me have suffered enough since the tragic death of Claire and we are making a heartfelt plea to the thief to return her ashes as soon as possible.”
