Butterfly sculpture stolen from 6-year-old girl's grave

September 4, 2015

DUNDEE A family is asking for help after a memorial to their daughter was stolen from her grave in Fond du Lac County.

The mother of 6-year-old Tiffany Last says a butterfly sculpture was taken from the girl's grave in Dundee within the past two weeks.

Her family is devastated. Her mother, Christine Krahn, tells WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/1VAaCRS ) her husband made the sculpture for their daughter shortly after she died.

Krahn says her daughter was born with several health issues and went through 52 surgeries in her short life. The girl died in December of 2006.

Her mother says the butterfly sculpture and other ornaments are more than knickknacks for the family. She says butterflies "were her thing."

The family is asking for whoever took the sculpture to return it.
