A FAMILY IN OLYMPIA IS ASKING FOR THE COMMUNITY'S
HELP TO FIND HEIRLOOMS STOLEN FROM THEIR VACATION
HOME IN COVILLE.
THE TURNERS DISCOVERED THEIR ALASKAN BEAR RUG, AND
OTHER ITEMS MISSING WHEN CLEANING OUT THE HOME FOLLOWING
A FAMILY DEATH.
THEY'RE OFFERING A REWARD IN HOPES OF RELOCATING THEM.
KXLY4'S ALLIE NORTON IS WORKING FOR YOU TONIGHT TO
FIND OUT WHAT WAS TAKEN AND WHY IT MEANS SO MUCH.
IT'S A REQUEST COMING FROM 400 MILES AWAY...
HELP FIND THE TURNER FAMILY'S HEIRLOOMS.
SO THAT THE MEMORY OF GRANDPA HERB CAN BE PASSED ON.
We lost dad a year ago.
We'd really like the trophies back.
A 9 FOOT ALASKAN BEAR RUG,
BLACK TAIL ANTLER MOUNT...
ITEMS THAT DECORATED THE PLACE HERB AND MICKIE ESCAPED
TO FROM THEIR BUSY HOMETOWN OF OLYMPIA.
Mom and dad usually spent three to five months a year
over there, some in the spring and some in the fall.
WHEN HERB LOST HIS BATTLE TO PROSTATE CANCER IN THE
SUMMER 2013 IT PUT AN END TO TRIPS TO COLVILLE.
IT WASN'T UNTIL JUST THIS SUMMER THAT THE FAMILY CAME
BACK TO START CLEANING OUT THE PLACE.
WHEN THEY MOST RECENTLY RETURNED THEY FOUND THAT SOMEONE
HAD BROKEN IN.
This is the door they used to gain entry.
FAMILY FRIEND DAVE BASKIN WAS THERE THE DAY THAT MICKIE
DISCOVERED HER HUSBAND'S TROPHIES WERE TAKEN.
Losing her husband was bad enough, but now to lose
these items that were irreplaceable, his things that
he was going to pass on to the boys, she was really
broken up about that.
BASKIN IS NOT ONLY CLOSE TO THE TURNER FAMILY, HIS
WIFE IS ALSO THE ONE WHO PRESERVED THEIR ANIMALS.
In a family that hunts, passing off those trophies
is just huge.
SHE AND DAVE ARE PART OF THE EFFORT TO REUNITE THE
TURNER'S WITH THEIR HEIRLOOMS.
I'm thankful, the whole family is thankful to the
whole community for helping us out.
If you have any information you are asked to contact
the Stevens County Sheriffs Office, that number is
on your screen now.
