Hollywood Woman Says Thief Stole Bear Containing Infant's Ashes

A Hollywood woman says a thief stole a teddy bear containing the ashes of her infant daughter from her front porch.

La'Quinta McKinney told local news outlets that she was moving from her apartment in the 300 block of North 61st Terrace on Monday and placed some her belongings on her front porch while she went to retrieve a U-Haul van. 

When she returned, someone had rifled through her bags and taken the bear and other items.

Her 2 -month-old daughter, La'Vae, died in 2016 of sudden infant death syndrome. She said she placed LaVae's ashes in a special teddy bear to keep her daughter's memory alive.

Hollywood police said they are investigating the theft.

McKinney said she doesn't care about the other items stolen. She just wants the teddy bear returned.
