Home burglarized days after elderly couple dies

by

MARION, Wis (WSAU) Family members say the home of an elderly couple who died was burglarized just days after their deaths in Shawano County.

90-year-old Eldore Mielke and 90-year-old Malinda Mielke died within a day of each other. They'd been married for 68-years. They both died of complications from the flu. Their home in Marion was broken into and burglarized a day later.

A relative says they're in shock that thieves would stoop so low. The couple's will and property deeds were stolen. Cash that was kept in the home was taken and a rare-coin collection is also missing.

Police say they're investigating, but no arrests have been made so far.
