Please help this nurse working to save COVID-19 patients recover her car and fiancé’s ashes.
Recently a nurse who relocated to Atlanta to help treat COVID-19 patients had her Dodge Challenger stolen. That alone would be pretty devastating, but this nurse had her late fiancé’s ashes in the car. The father of her only child recently died, the thieves adding to her suffering by stealing the muscle car her fiancé drove, as well as his remains.
The stolen car is a 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT 392. It’s a hot American performance machine with the 6.4-liter Hemi V8 and 485-horsepower on tap, which likely attracted the attention of the thieves. We’ve seen quite a few Dodge muscle cars stolen as well as attempts to steal them lately, but this one is especially tragic.
These criminals weren’t sophisticated in their approach at all. While the muscle car was sitting in a parking lot, they brazenly smashed one of the windows to gain access. How they started the car is unknown, although there are sadly ways to do that with modern keyless ignitions, such as signal capture and reproduction.
This grieving nurse was inside a store shopping for a birthday present for her daughter, who is about to turn one. The plan was to hold a memorial service in Louisiana, where this nurse calls home, and intern the ashes in a graveyard there. Now that dream has been shattered.
While she realizes the car is probably a goner, this nurse is holding out hope that the thieves will do the right thing and return her fiancé’s ashes. What would be great is if everyone were to spread this story around to help look for the car and ashes so there’s a happy ending for this nurse helping people who are suffering from the devastating effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
Anyone who might have information about this theft can reach out to police or encourage those responsible to do the right thing.
