- Leila Abdallah lost three of her children in a horror car accident on February 1, 2020
- A drunk and drug-stricken Samuel Davidson wiped out her family in the blink of an eye
- Now the Abdallahs have their family’s house ransacked by a brutal thief
- Among the many stolen items were fond memories of the deceased children
- On Saturday, police confirmed that the car had been found 30 km west of the family’s home
The car stolen from the families of the victims of the Oatlands crash has been dumped in a parking lot.
Leila and Danny Abdallah’s home in Telopea, northwest Sydney, was targeted by a burglar at 11:45 a.m. on Wednesday.
Three of the Abdallahs’ children died in February last year when they were hit by an out of control 4WD driven by a drunk and drugged driver.
Sienna Abdallah, eight, her siblings Angelina, 12, and Antony, 13, and their cousin Veronique Sakr, 11, were cut down while walking to buy ice cream.
The hearts of the nation were with Leila Abdallah and Danny Abdallah (pictured) after three of their children were murdered in Sydney in 2020 by a drunk and drug-stricken driver.
Mrs. Abdallah was in her kitchen on Wednesday looking at pictures of the children when she saw a man walking out the front door with a bag full of stolen items.
“I was too focused on the pictures of my kids, the videos of Anthony and Angelina and Sienna, I didn’t feel it, I just felt him go away,” Ms. Abdallah told 9News.
“They took my bag, our jewelry, one of my kids’ phones, but most importantly, they brought memories.
On Saturday, police confirmed that the car had been found in Blackett, 19 miles west of the family’s home.

Chief Inspector Darryl Jobson warned that the thieves’ police would come and get them unless they turn themselves in.
“Over the past 12 months, the victims have endured an incredible ordeal and I appeal to the conscience of the people responsible for this crime to turn themselves in to the police,” he said.
‘If you don’t have a conscience, we’ll get your names and knock on your door.
‘It’s absolutely disgusting. It is absolutely disgusting to enter a house while there are people. ‘
CCTV footage shows a man in black pants and a black hoodie running from home.
He then fled the scene with an accomplice in what police say was a stolen white Audi.

Police believe the raid was opportunistic and not deliberately targeting the Abdallah family.
The intruder is described as being white, about 6 feet tall and in his twenties with light hair.
Police, with the help of a helicopter and dogs, were unable to locate the men, who are still at large.
The couple are also believed to have attempted another home invasion in nearby Dundas.
Earlier this month, Davidson was sentenced to at least 21 years in prison in the Parramatta District Court on four charges of manslaughter.
Now that the time has been served, he will be eligible for parole in January 2041.
