A heartbroken family is pleading for thieves to stop targeting a roadside memorial for their little boy.

Logan Woodyatt, 11, died when a driver high on ice crashed into the car he was travelling in two years ago.

But Logan’s roadside memorial has been targeted by heartless thieves. A cross was stolen in April just before the ice-fuelled driver Michelle Currey was jailed.

Logan’s devastated family replaced the cross on Mother’s Day. But it has once again been stolen. So his family replaced the cross yet again on Wednesday.

The boy’s aunt, Bec Girling, said the theft of the cross was “a kick in the guts to Logan” and his family, reports 7 news.

“Who would take someone’s cross?” she said. “The cross is gone. One minute it’s there, the next minute it’s gone.”

The family has managed to obtain CCTV from a local flower shop with cameras pointed at the cross but they said it does not show the moment it was taken.

Logan’s family said they also have approval from local police and council to place a roadside memorial at the location.

People can be truly heartless. How frustrating for the family.

  • Its sad that people feel the need to tamper with something like this.
    The family of the child can also remember that their little boy is not there at that location so they can place a memorial in a safe location like their own backyard and that way no one can tamper with it. Make it beautiful and plant beautiful flowers around it.


  • Exactly, who would take a child’s roadside memorial? Some people really are thoughtless and heartless


  • I’m tipping someone associated to the person responsible for Logan’s death is removing the cross as they don’t want to be reminded. It is an absolutely heartless and senseless thing to do that is causing additional undue stress and grief to this poor family.


  • What a heartless thing to do. Shame on them.


  • This is truly heartless ! How low can you go ?!

    • Stealing a religious item ! We can only pray for God to become real in the thief’s life and for this person to return it.


  • They have approval so why do people have to do this. I know some think the crosses are a distraction. I prefer to think of them as a warning to be careful.


  • This makes me incredibly sad & angry. Sad because of their loss but angry at why a person or persons would be so heartless & steal a memorial cross. Seriously what is wrong with people


  • Can’t imagine what goes on inside the minds of people who steal like this, and the grief for the family would be hard to take.


  • Why would people do this,we all know how much it means to the family.


  • Terrible that people do that! This brings even more sadness to the family! :-(
