Burglar Targets Homes of Recently Deceased
Once again I came across a news story about a burglar who targeted the homes of recently deceased individuals. Targets were likely found through obituary listings as well as notices for estate sales. When sharing the news of a loved ones passing, attempt to keep specifics on the home vague. I also recommend having someone stay in or monitor the home. When my father passed away, I asked a neighbor to stop in at my mother's home when were were at the services. People thought it was odd, but then you come across stories like this and it is not odd. Just a sad commentary on current times.
