Woman devastated after thieves took her late husband's ashes and stuffed cat

A widow left devastated by the theft of her husband's ashes says she pities the thieves. The ashes were kept in a velvet box that was stolen from her Sunshine, Australia home.

A stuffed cat, a rare antique watch, an engagement ring and other valuable items were also taken. But Jennifer said it was the loss of the personal items that she felt most.

I feel sorry for them (the thieves)," she said "They obviously have no life. They even took my bathroom scales, for god's sake. They steal your memories."

The thief broke into 61-year-old Jennifer's house between midnight and 8.30am last Friday. Police have released an image of a woman they wish to speak to in relation to the burglary.

There's an audio interview with Jennifer here.
