On Sat., Sept. 7, Samantha Markell’s apartment in Winchester was broken into while attending the Russell Fair. Items that were stolen include her Playstation 3 with controller, Xbox 360, Acer Google Chromebook laptop, Blackweb speaker, JBL Bluetooth speaker, Sony Bluetooth speaker, Hipstreet Bluetooth speaker, a brand new dragon necklace given to her by her boyfriend, among others. However, the one item that was stolen that holds the most sentiment to Markell is a teardrop necklace. Markell’s father recently passed away earlier this year and his ashes are within the necklace. The necklace is her last connection to her father, and of everything that was stolen, she wants and hopes to have it returned the most. If you have any information on the whereabouts of Markell’s necklace or any of her other stolen possessions, you are encouraged to contact her at 613-870-0862 or the local OPP. Courtesy photo
