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.
