Last photos of 6-year-old Aurora theater shooting victim Veronica Moser-Sullivan stolen in burglary

Grandfather pleads for return of memory card

DENVER - The grandfather of the youngest victim in the Aurora theater shooting said the last pictures of her were stolen when his home was burglarized.

"I've been going through hell," said Robert Sullivan. "It's a nightmare on top of a nightmare."

The nightmare started, Sullivan said, when he lost his only granddaughter, 6-year-old Veronica Moser Sullivan, in the shooting.

"There's a huge hole in my heart from the loss of my granddaughter, and it seems to be getting ripped more," Sullivan told 7NEWS reporter Jaclyn Allen.

He said between 9 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. Tuesday, someone broke into his west Denver home and stole money, jewelry and cameras.

One of the cameras had a memory card inside that had special meaning.

"Those are the last photos I have of Veronica before the shooting, and that memory card is still in the camera," said Sullivan.

The photographs of the card were from a special day Sullivan spent with Veronica.

He had downloaded one of the photos -- a picture of her eating ice cream.

But the ones of her at the park and at her kindergarten graduation are gone.

Sullivan said he is telling his story in the hope that someone will come forward with the memory card or information.

"Anybody who has any connection or any knowledge of this, please return the memory cards," said Sullivan. "I'm not sure what the future holds, but I keep hoping things will get better."

Denver Police responded to the report, but had no detail on the case Tuesday.
