LITHONIA, Ga. - Tragedy strikes against for the family of a 15-year-old basketball star who died on the court of a heart attack.
Terrell Coleman was one of the nation's top high school recruits when he suffered a fatal heart attack playing the sport he loved four years ago. Now, someone has broken into his family's home and stolen their memories of him.
His mother has a special message for the thieves who broke into her son's room and stole his belongings. A room that she had not entered in four years since his tragic death on the basketball court.
Raeshone Coleman came home to find her mobile home ransacked. The door was broken in. She reads from a list of things that were stolen.
If never found, those things can be replaced. But what can't be are the possessions and memories of her 15-year-old-son. The Miller Grove High School freshman died tragically on the basketball court in 2013. At the time, he was already one of the top recruits in the country.
Ms. Coleman, in four years, has only entered his room a few times. Until, the break-in, it was as Terrell left it. Now that sanctity has been violated and his belongings are missing.
And it not just the teenager's possessions that were stolen. Memories he had made for his mother for mother's day.
Police are investigating the burglary. She said one of the items missing was a special Atlanta Hawks jersey the team gave her as a special honor to her son.
So many special memories stolen, Raeshone Coleman said she doesn't know where to turn to get them back.
