Casey Kelley owns the stolen SUV.  Kelley said, "He looked so young and that's what's so hurtful because it's just a kid."



"With kids, they need guidance and that guidance is knowing where your child is at five in the morning," ​​​​​​Kelley added, "Why is your child out of the house and breaking into cars and stealing cars at 5 o'clock?"
