California mom says son's ashes stolen in burglary

Burglars ransacked a home in Stockton, Calif., Wednesday and took off with an urn that contained the ashes of a woman's son who was still born when she gave birth, Fox40.com reported.

Raynesha Williams told the station that she came home and noticed doors and windows open, When she inspected the house she saw that the urn was missing.

"It was like losing a child all over again," she said. "If you get burglarized, that's traumatic, but if you have something stolen that means something to you, like an urn with your child’s ashes, that’s very sentimental."

Williams, who had five miscarriages in the last three years, asked the burglars to return the urn.

"It's not like they don't know where I live," she said.
