LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A Lexington woman is pleading for help after a cherished possession was stolen from her car in the Buckhorn neighborhood.

Cheyenne Brown says she no longer feels safe in her Lexington home, and refuses to stay there alone.

“I don’t know if it’s just my house that’s cursed or whats going on,” said Brown.

First, she says squatters carved a hole in her attic, and then someone popped the lock to her front door and stole money.

After more than a dozen car break-ins, Brown says it got worse Saturday morning. A cherished possession was missing from her car.

“My change purse was gone and I noticed that my dad’s ashes were in that change purse.”

Brown’s father passed away less than a year ago. She and her sister infused his ashes into identical necklaces. Although she has notified police, she is sending a plea to whoever may have grabbed it from her car.

“I don’t care that you stole my money that is the last thing I care about. What I care about is my dad, and I want you to bring him back. There are no questions asked. I mean I will give you whatever you need. I just want my dad. Bring him home.”

Brown’s door was unlocked, and police tell her there is not much they can do. They advised her to check local pawn shops.
