The stolen urn

A FATHER has issued a desperate plea to the community to assist him in tracking down the stolen ashes of his little girl.

Ralph Hooper was alerted to a break-in at his home in Ormeau, south of Brisbane, by his step-daughter at 3pm yesterday.

Rushing home, he was devastated to discover the ashes of his little girl Elizabeth June Hooper were missing from his bedside.

Elizabeth Hooper died from a brain tumour three years ago when she was five years old.

“I saw red, I felt so betrayed that someone would stoop so low,” he said.

“It cut me very deep and there was a feeling of numbness that I had lost all I had left of her.

“We are all very distraught.”

Mr Hooper said his great-grandmother’s engagement ring was also stolen in addition to other valuables around the house but the ashes were the one thing he wanted returned most.

“If they could just be returned to the house, the police, a local school, anything,” he said.

“They are worthless to the thief but priceless to me.

“Any decent person would hand them back.”

Mr Hooper said the thieves ripped the security screen from a bedroom window to gain access to the house.

They ransacked several rooms and made off with two pillow cases full of stolen goods.

He described the urn holding the ashes as a brass heart-shaped container in a blue, velvet lined box.

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.
