A reward is now being offered for the return of an external computer hard drive stolen from a family in Washtenaw County.  Reports say it contained pictures of a five year-old boy who died recently from cancer.


You may have heard the story of Chad Carr, the grandson of former University of Michigan football coach Lloyd Carr.  Chad passed away at the age of 5 in 2015 from a rare form of brain cancer.

His family and the Ann Arbor community has been active in raising funds and awareness to combat the type of cancer that took his young life.

His family was on vacation last week and when they returned they found their Pittsfield Township home had been broken into.  The family car had been stolen along with a safe containing hard drives with photos and videos of the now-deceased child.

The reward of several thousand dollars is being offered for the return of the hard drive--no questions asked, according to a Facebook post by the boy's mother, Tammi Carr.
