A day at the state fair turned into a nightmare for one Pueblo family this weekend.
"I woke up because I heard my daughter crying." says Nadine Triste. That's when she went into the living room of her home and heard the story from her heartbroken daughter, Alicia.
"We got to our vehicle and we noticed that the little back window was broken out." explains Alcia Solis. Someone had broken into her car and stolen her speakers. They also took a camera with something very valuable to Alicia's family. "The memory chip that was in it has the pictures of my daddy, who is my grandfather, and my son." says Alicia while fighting back tears.
Alicia's baby died hours after she gave birth to him in 2007. Her grandfather passed away last year. The memory chip in the camera has the last remaining pictures of both of them. "I felt awful." says Triste, "I haven't heard her cry that hard since the baby actually died."
The family holds no grudge against the person who stole the camera. They only have one simple request. "I don't even want to know who you are. I would just like to have the memory card back from my camera so I can have those memories." says Solis. "We're good people." adds a tearful Triste, "We love our family. We just would just like to get our pictures back. We've lost too much already."
