Women Gets Robbed of Her Child’s Ashes

Monica Thomas was heartbroken after the remains of her newborn baby were stolen. It was the most heartbreaking of purse snatchings.

A young Alabama woman was carrying the ashes of her newborn baby in her purse on Friday night when a thug knocked her down and robbed her, authorities said.

The robbery occurred in Montgomery, one day before before Monica Thomas, on her 20th birthday, was planning to bury the baby’s cremated remains by her mother’s grave.

“All I want is my baby back,” a teary Thomas told Fox 6. “Everything else is irrelevant.”

The box containing the ashes had the baby’s name, Jamar Simmons Jr., and the birthdate printed on the front. Jamar had lived for just two hours due to complications with his mother’s pregnancy.

Anyone who has information about the suspect should call CrimeStoppers.
