The family of the deceased woman has asked anybody with information in the case to come forward. They say they are still grieving their mother's death.

Brandi Carrasco, granddaughter of the deceased, had this to say according to News West 9: "To go in and do that to someone is deplorable. We want our family jewelry back."
