Father’s Ashes Stolen from Burton Family, Pleading For Return
The man's family is making a public plea for help to find and return his cremains.
A Burton family has taken to the media to plead for the return of their father's cremated remains after they were stolen out of their car.
Aimee Brown's father, Michael Lousey, passed away last year after a long battle with lung cancer. Last Tuesday marked the one-year anniversary of his passing; the family had decided to pick up his cremains and take them to the Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly to have him laid to rest.
According to ABC 12, they picked up the box that contained the Vietnam Veteran and left it in the car overnight on Tuesday to bring to the cemetery on Wednesday. However, when they went to the car that morning, the box was gone.
The family searched the neighborhood and found nothing. Aimee said that her worst fear is that somebody thought that the box was trash and that it ended up in the garbage somewhere.
We are afraid that the box is going to end up in the garbage and nobody is going to realize what it is. So if you just kind of keep an look out for the box, in your yard. Maybe somebody threw it your garbage can passing by just anything out of the ordinary.
This is the box that the family is searching for, possibly in the area of Kettering, Belsay, or Lapeer Rd. Please keep an eye out for this family; this must be absolutely devastating.
