TROTWOOD, Ohio (WDTN) – Late January of 2015, marked more than 3 years since Chrissy Boyd lost her fiancé, Adam Phillips on Christmas Eve to cancer and heart disease.

The two had been in a relationship for 6 years, and during that time welcomed a beautiful, baby boy, Jordan.

As a new mom and soon-to-be wife, Boyd looked forward to the life the couple planned to build together.

But that future was cut short when illness took him at the ripe age 24.

That’s why the events of January 27th truly hurt her and her family.

It’s the date when the Trotwood woman’s home was ransacked and robbed some time in the morning, while she was gone taking her son to school and running errands.

Police reports show that 3 televisions, laptop, computer, and a child’s tablet were among the items stolen.

However, the electronics are not what the mom wants back; Boyd is begging for the return of priceless mementos that were taken from a lock box in her bedroom.

“They violated me. They violated my privacy, my son’s security,” a visibly-upset Boyd described. “They violated so much to us, but if they could just return that lock box or just the items in it.”

The lock box had Phillips’ deed to his burial plot, insurance documents, social security cards and more official documents.

But Boyd wants the CDs filled with pictures, the sonogram of their son Jordan, the music he produced while building his rap career.

Those are the items she wants to leave for her 7-year-old step-son and the couple’s 3-year-old son, who was just a year and half years old when his dad died.

“I did not expect someone to come in my home and take that,” Boyd says, yet she planned for natural disasters that’s why she saved these items in the water-proof, fire-proof lock box.

For now, Boyd clutches her late fiancé’s rings, dangling from her neck, and a few photos that were printed and framed in their home.

If these things don’t come back, she questions how she’ll keep the memory of Jordan’s dad alive.

‘That’s the thing I’m having a hard time dealing with that,” she admitted.

And that’s why the mother is filled with conviction to retrieve the stolen lock box.

She wants to help her toddler remember that he’s always Daddy’s little angel.

“I will dig through trash. You tell me and I will go get it, that’s how dear that is to me because like I said they are irreplaceable. You cannot replace what’s in that box,” Boyd pleaded with whoever or whomever committed the crime.

If you have any information about this home burglary,you are urged to contact Trotwood Police immediately.
