Move to the top for overnight Sunday.
From WCPO, at a friend’s reqest:
Prized possession stolen from man’s Covedale home, days after he died
A Covedale man died late January and thieves took a prized possession from his home just after he passed away.
The night Jesse Musick died, burglars broke into his home. The following night, they came back for the belonging that mattered most – a custom motorcycle that he and his daughter built from scratch.
Musick, 46, owned Avalon Tattoo and Piercing Shop on Glenway Avenue. His family said many people knew him around the Covedale area, and they suspect one of his neighbors is behind the burglary.
Traci Gibson was married to Musick for 10 years.
“He had a lot of friends and a lot of bikers, they all rode together, including my daughter. She rode with them too,” Gibson said.
She’s the person who found Musick’s body. Doctors said he died from an overdose.
“It’s something that he had a lot of trouble with,” she said. “He was fighting a lot of demons as well.”
Brighter memories were made with their 16-year-old daughter, Elizabeth. Last summer, she and Musick spent many days building a one-of-a-kind Hayabusa motorcycle.
“They rode that bike together, they built that bike together, and that bike is something very special to both of them,” Gibson said.
I’d like to believe that the person who stole the bike would return it, but it’s probably too much to hope for, given the nature of the kind of person who would do such a thing in the first place.
But that bike was taken by thieves, she said, who removed it from Musick’s basement garage.
“Instead of being able to grieve over the fact that he had passed away, we’re having to catch people that have robbed him,” she said. “He has been robbed twice.”
“He was a good husband, he was a good father and he was just loved by many people.” …
Go here for the rest of the story.
Sadly, I don’t hold out much hope for recovery. The kind of person who would steal such a thing isn’t the kind of person who would have the integrity to return it.
