Family Looking to Find Loved One’s Remains

Hamilton Police are looking for public assistance after a family had the remains of their loved one stolen in a break and enter.

On May 15, 2019, a resident living in the Barton Street East area of Hamilton arrived home to find their front door kicked in and personal contents missing.

Police believe the suspects entered the home and mistook a black velvet bag for an item of monetary value. The velvet bag contained the ashes of a deceased relative.

The family is not interested in pursuing charges and their only concern is for the return of their loved one. If you have any information that could assist police, please contact Detective Constable John Obrovac at (905)546-2921.
