KEEPSAKES STOLEN
(2007-01-12)
(wgvu) - - WHOEVER MADE OFF WITH A BATCH OF
VIDEOTAPES FROM AN OTTAWA COUNTY HOUSE STOLE A FAMILY'S PRICELESS
MEMORIES OF A YOUNG MOTHER WHO DIED ALL TOO SOON.
MELANIE WORTHINGTON OF BLENDON TOWNSHIP MADE THE TAPES FOR HER
FIVE-YEAR-OLD SON, THEO, BEFORE SHE DIED OF PANCREATIC CANCER IN
NOVEMBER AT THE AGE OF 39.
THERE ARE TAPES OF MOTHER AND SON BAKING COOKIES, PLAYING AT
THEIR CABIN, ANYTHING, WORTHINGTON'S MOTHER SAYS, THAT MIGHT HELP
THEO REMEMBER THE THINGS HE DID WITH HIS MOM.
BUT A FEW WEEKS AFTER SHE DIED, SOMEONE STOLE VIRTUALLY ALL THE
TAPES, ALONG WITH TWO CAMCORDERS AND A PORTABLE D-V-D PLAYER.
DETECTIVES DON'T HAVE ANY SUSPECTS BUT THEY'VE RECEIVED A NUMBER
OF CALLS OFFERING REWARDS.
