NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A young couple says they were moving out of their Madison apartment when they were robbed.
Thousands of dollars’ worth of items were taken, but one of them, the one that mattered most, was a picture of her deceased grandfather.
“My pappy was the one stable thing in my life until the day he died,” said Kirsten Conley. “This month is always the hardest because it’s when my pappy died. For that photo to be missing, it was the worst thing that could’ve happened.”
Conley’s grandfather, George Conley III, will have been dead four years next week and the one piece she still has of him is a picture from Halloween.
“I was a princess for Halloween, but we didn’t have a lot of money so I wore a flower girl dress,” she said. “It’s the last picture that I had of him.”
Conley told News 2 that when she and her fiancé returned to their apartment Labor Day evening, they found numerous items had been stolen. Along among them were jewelry and musical instruments.
The couple is just starting out at 18 and 22 years old. They say they can’t afford to replace the items right away, but it’s those with sentimental value that can’t ever be replaced.
“I just really want my guitars back,” said fiancé Christopher Cox. One of the guitars was passed down from his now-deceased uncle.
“I want them back and whoever did this to meet justice,” he added.
