LDS Mom Reunited with Stolen Keepsakes, Notes Written by Her Son Before His Death

Caylee Lewis told Fox 13 that she always kept her purse close, but for reasons other than what you might think. 

Inside the purse were cards and notes written by her 12-year-old son, Jaxon Lewis, before he passed away in February in a snowmobile accident. 

Each day, Caylee says, she would look at those notes—until they were stolen on May 1. 

While on a hike in Sandy, Utah, Caylee's car was burglarized and several items were stolen, including the purse where she kept the notes written by her son. 

“From the bottom of my heart . . . please, please return my purse and my phone and the stolen items,” Caylee told Fox 13. “They have so much more value to me than they do to anyone else.”

Fortunately, the Cottonwood Heights Police Department was able to reunite Caylee with the notes on Thursday. 

"Good Cop Story. CHPD is pleased to announce they made an arrest in the [vehicle] burglary case wherein personal pics and letters of the [victim's] [deceased] young son were taken with the purse. CHPD [detectives] recovered ALL property [including] letters and pics. Returned to victim. Well done," the Cottonwood Heights Police Department posted on their Twitter page.
