A mother whose son just passed away lost something else that she says means the world to her. She says someone broke into her rental car and stole a suitcase filled with photos of her dead son pictures she planned to use for his service.

Alyse Cade is originally from Houston and flew her son's body from Detroit to Houston to bury him surrounded by family and friends. He died last month from Muscular Dystrophy.

After visiting the funeral home she and members of her family went to Pappadeaux's on Richmond for dinner. She left her suitcase filled with 19 years worth of photos in the back seat when someone smashed the back window and grabbed the bag.

"I really need those pictures. Those are everything that I have of my baby and I really need that for his funeral," said Cade.

She called police but she says they never came to the scene. She wants whoever stole the bag to return it to police.
