Family Pleads for Return of Cremated Ashes Stolen From Minivan

A Glendale family is pleading for the public’s help in finding their deceased family member’s ashes, which were stolen Sunday from their minivan.

The family’s matriarch was 87-year-old Burbank resident Lois LaRocco, who died Aug. 28 due to complications from Alzheimer’s.

She was cremated and her ashes were placed in an 8-inch-by-11-inch round navy blue leather urn.
