Grandfather of Aurora victim begs for photos back

DENVER — The grandfather of a 6-year-old girl killed during the Aurora, Colo., theater shootings wants a thief to return pictures of the child that were stolen from his home in a burglary this week.

"They're the last photos I have of her," said Robert Sullivan, grandfather of Veronica Moser-Sullivan, the youngest person slain in the July 20 attack that left 12 dead and dozens wounded.

Sullivan said Wednesday that four cameras were stolen, including one that had a memory card with more than 40 photos of Veronica at a school celebration. Other images show her at a playground.

Sullivan said he still has a well-known photo of the girl licking an ice cream cone, but the rest of the shots are gone. Sullivan said he hopes whoever has the pictures will recognize the girl and return the memory cards to him or police, even if they keep the cameras.

Denver police said Wednesday they are investigating the reported thefts, which also included a coin collection and cash.

Former University of Colorado-Denver graduate student James Holmes is accused in the shooting rampage that killed 12 people and wounded 58 others during a midnight showing of the summer's Batman movie.

Veronica's mother, Ashley Moser, was wounded during the shootings. She was left paralyzed and also miscarried.
