Robbers steal wife's memento of 9/11 victim
The Pelham Manor community is pleading with robbers who stole a widow's Sept. 11 memento to bring it back.
Police say the robbers used a spare key that they found Sunday to enter a home in the Esplanade section of town. They made off with $15,000 worth of jewelry, a team autographed Yankees jersey and an urn that holds a tremendous amount of sentimental value.
Daniel Shea and his older brother, Joseph, worked at Cantor Fitzgerald. They both perished in the attacks. Daniel's wife was later given a wooden urn, likely containing ash from ground zero.
The theft has left residents disgusted. Todd Zuzulo, who owns T and L Trophies is asking the robbers to listen to their conscience. "Bring it in and I'll give it to her," he says. "It's not yours. It's not worth anything to you. It's not worth anything but to the family."
Anyone with information about the theft is asked to contact Pelham Manor police at 914-738-1000.
