Mom says irreplaceable pictures of deceased child stolen

Kristal Rosa is devastated. She says someone went into her car in her driveway, and grabbed her wallet.

There wasn't any cash or credit cards inside, but what was inside was much more valuable to this mom: secure digital (SD) camera cards with five years worth of pictures, including almost all of the pictures she has of her son Giovanni, who passed away when he was just four months old.

"That's a lot of memories pregnancy, his funeral is in there, that's what really gets me is that's the only thing I have of his funeral," she said.

She estimates that she had more than $5,000 pictures on the SD cards.

Giovanni died in 2013 from complications related to a condition with which he was born.  Two of Rosa's neighbors said their cars were broken into overnight as well.  Leah Kulesa scared a man off that was in her car in her driveway just before 4 a.m. on Monday morning. 

She said, "You almost feel violated, I'm standing there watching him , shaking inside. I didn't know what to do at that point. it was scary."

That suspect is described as a tall man who was wearing a white hat.  Both families filed police reports.
Deputies are investigating and have fingerprinted Rosa's car.  She's hoping if anyone finds her SD cards, they will turn them in.
