Thieves Steal Urn Containing Remains of Family Member from Burien Home
On Wednesday of this week (March 21), thieves broke into the Burien home of the Amador family, and among items stolen was a box containing the remains of their older son Efrain, who passed away 13 years ago in a car accident.
The missing container with Efrain’s remains is a cherry-colored wooden box with copper flowers on the lid. The box was enclosed in a dark red velvet bag that was stolen along with other items.
The Amador family has been residents of the area for almost 20 years; daughter Geno Amador is the former Associate Director of local non-profit Para Los Niños.
Family members are asking that if anyone knows anything about this incident, to please find a way to return the urn to the family, no questions asked, as they would like to give their son a proper burial in Mexico.
“Out of everything they took that would be the most important thing they want returned,” family friend Maurcio Ayon told The B-Town Blog.
