NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A critical care doctor in Nashville returned home Thursday to find the Green Hills structure nearly unrecognizable.
“I came home to find they ransacked my house,” Dr. Pamela Watson told News 2.
Dr. Watson was the victim of a brazen midday burglary, during which precious heirlooms were stolen.
She left Thursday morning to check on some patients, and when she returned by noon, she was crushed to find her home in total disarray.
Closets were cleared out and drawers were disheveled, but the mess paled in comparison to what was taken from her home.
“My grandmother’s wedding ring, my great-grandmother’s wedding ring, a ring from a deceased aunt, and the last Christmas card my mom ever wrote for me,” Watson said.
The doctor cherished the items left behind by the women of her family.
“The things I value most are the things I have from my family,” she added.
Investigators think the burglars broke in through the back window of the home. Officers dusted the entire house for any trace of the thieves, but so far nothing has turned up.
Dr. Watson is desperate for her luck to change and hopeful her heirlooms are returned.
She said what she lost likely doesn’t have a high monetary value, but the sentimental value is irreplaceable.
“I’d just like to have those back,” she told News 2.
Anyone with information about the burglary should contact Nashville Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
