Burglary leaves East Dallas family devastated

By Diana Zoga

An East Dallas family is devastated after burglars ransacked their home, stealing from them and their young daughter who used a wheelchair.


The family of 13-year-old Natalie Stinson was in their daily routine Wednesday -- Natalie and her younger brother and sister were at school while their dad, Khris, was at work.

When the children's mom, Brenda, brought them home, they discovered thieves had picked apart their house.

Since the burglary, the family hasn't been able to find their cat, Daisey.

"I asked my mom, ‘Where's Daisey?' and she said she might be hiding," said Natalie. "I don't think she's hiding. She gotta run away from the back. They shouldn't leave the door open because she's not supposed to go outside. "

Natalie says her younger sister took it hard.

"I just feel so violated," said Brenda. "This is my home. My privacy, everything…they took everything from us."

The thieves also took a shotgun from the home.

The Stinsons now plan to get security cameras for their house. They don't want thieves coming back.

Dallas police are investigating, saying it's likely that the crooks got in between 11 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. Wednesday.
