ORANGE PARK, Fla.-- Somer Thompson's home was burglarized.

Diena Thompson has reminders of her daughter Somer all over her home. It has been a tough three years since Somer's murder.

Now it's even tougher. Someone broke into Diena's home and ruffled through her stuff. The report says the person stole $15,000 worth of jewelry and electronics.

Action News spoke to Diena and she says some of that jewelry was given to her after Somer's murder. It had a special meaning for her. Now she's just hoping police can solve the case for her family so they can once again get back those precious mementos.

Police say they are making progress in the case, but no arrests have been made.

Among the items taken include:

  • A Samsung laptop
  • An Apple iPod
  • An Apple iPad
  • Apple iPhone charger
  • White gold diamond and emerald ring
  • Yellow gold marquise engagement ring with 18 round diamonds
  • Yellow gold 1 carat anniversary band
  • Yellow gold band

The detective found no signs of forced entry at the home.

Jarred Harrell accepted a plea deal to avoid the death penalty by admitting to killing Somer.  He received life in prison without parole.

She looks like a trashy whore who is trying to get rich off the death of her child. Where has Somer's father been in all of this? I will seek an investigation into her 501 3C and where the money has gone, she better call Mark Lunsford and seek his advice. he bought a new harley with his donations and is in a world of trouble. Money will bring out all kinds of trash and it has brought her back out into the public's eye. All the girls in the media that meet for lunch need to discuss this , investigate it and publish it!

y'all are sick to dis this woman who's daughter was kidnapped raped and murdered. It takes a special kind of pettiness to deny these people any small measure of comfort. I dare any one of y'all heartless freaks to ask these parents if they would would trade these material possessions to have their children back.

Yep, Her money must have ran out from her web site. She needs to get back in the lime light to raise more money from her daughter's death, Shame on her, she is just as bad as the Martin's and the Davis. Trying to make a living off of the death of their child...

Suzy, I have to agree with you, she has used her daughter's death for profit, she hasn't worked since then and has a 501 3-C set up for personal use. it's very sad about her daughter, but this lazy mother, who is stealing from the public needs to use the money to educate the public about kid's safety and not pay her personal bills, someone needs to look into her 501 3-C, she is just like that guy Mark in Tampa, who used his 501 3C to buy a harley and Bubba brought it to the public's attention. Sounds like corruption to me!
