Pictures of young theater shooting murder victim stolen from grandfather
A relative of one of the 12 people killed in the Aurora movie theater is reeling once again. The grandfather of 6-year-old victim Veronica Moser-Sullivan said Tuesday some of the last photos that he took of the little girl were stolen.
“That’s the last photos that I have of Veronica before she was murdered,” said Robert Sullivan. He said he arrived home from work Tuesday morning to find a door to his Denver house unlocked and his bedroom turned upside down.
He said a number of valuables were taken, including four of his cameras. One silver Canon digital camera contained 30 shots of Veronica. Only some of those images had been downloaded.
“Everybody has those memories and whether or not they’re in your mind and your memory, if you don’t have the tangible proof… the photos, you have no idea how this compounds the pain,” Sullivan said.
He pleaded for the return of at least the Canon camera and memory card and said the latest incident just compounds the theater tragedy.
“The pain I felt all day has just been layered on to the pain of trying to deal with her loss,” Sullivan said.
