& # 39; This is NOT a graveyard! & # 39; Thief leaves a heartless message after stealing a cross in honor of a 12-year-old boy who died in a car accident – while the victim's sister lashes out to the & # 39; low life & # 39; and calls for it to be sent back
- The sister of a boy who died in a car accident took social media to call a callous thief
- Her brother, Stephen, has left his cross there for almost 23 years since 1996
- The sad family member said it was a & # 39; big shock & # 39; was for her grandmother
- & # 39; We are so angry and angry that someone can do this with another family & # 39;
- Town gathered support behind the destroyed sister, thinking of & # 39; brutal & # 39; boy
A destroyed sister struck at thieves who stole a cross from the cross. Her brother was fatally hit by a car more than two decades ago.
Justyn Louise, from Mandurah in northwestern Australia, said the theft had shattered her family, including their grandmother.
Mrs.'s brother Lousie, Stephen, was 12 years old at the corner of Murdoch Drive and Mandurah Road at the time of an accident.
His family and friends placed the cross on the roadside to honor the boy's short-lived life, where it had been for almost 23 years.
& # 39; Some low life has stolen Stephen & # 39; s cross & # 39 ;, she posted on Facebook.
& # 39; We are so angry and angry that someone can do this to someone else's family. & # 39;

The thieves also left a heartless message on a plank of wood, which made the pain of her and her family even greater.
& # 39; This is NOT a graveyard – no crosses, & # 39; read the note.
Mrs. Lousie said that the cross had been a tribute to her brother for more than 20 years.
& # 39; Our brother's cross has been in this place since 1996 & # 39 ;, she said.
& # 39; As you could imagine, it was a big shock for our grandmother to miss it. Anyone with information let me know. & # 39;
The municipality and main roads confirmed that they had not removed the cross.
The sister in mourning also placed pictures of the callous tone that remained where the cross was normally positioned
Stephen's close childhood friends said the cross was placed in that position to mark where he died.
& # 39; I went to primary school with Stephen and unfortunately was hit by a car and died when we were in year 7 & # 39 ;, Cade Brown told Daily Mail Australia.
& # 39; The cross was placed (there) by all his mates (including myself) and his family at the location where he was hit.
& # 39; We all walked down the road like a large group carrying the cross and putting it on the side of the road … He was a very funny kid, made everyone laugh. & # 39;
But she confirmed that removing her brother's cross had not been a council action and suspects thieves instead
Another childhood friend of Stephen, Tracy Holdway, remembered her former classmate for his colorful personality.
& # 39; I went to primary school with Stephen … I remember being brutal and vibrant, & # 39; said Mrs. Holdway.
While Stephens devastated sister may be without his cross, the city of Mandurah gathers behind her.
A flood of supportive messages calling out the disgraceful thieves and sending their remorse to Justyn remained at her post.
& # 39; Geez, a little low (lives). Stephen was in my daughter's class and I ran into the accident at that time. I hope it's back, & # 39; wrote a Facebook user.
& # 39; Omg who would do this. Stephen was one of the nicest guys, & # 39; wrote another.
Louise thanks those who offered their support, but noted that she just wanted the cross to be returned.
& # 39; Thank you all for sharing and your kind words … we just ask that it be returned because it means so much to so many people & # 39 ;, she wrote.
