LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- A mother, whose son passed away, lost something else that she said means the world to her.
Lisa Kirkland of Conway told THV 11 News that someone recently broke into her storage unit in Vilonia and stole her son's high school letter jacket along with many other items. Kirkland said whoever stole from her can keep what they took except for her son's letter jacket.
It's been 6 years since Kirkland lost her teenage son in a car accident. She said her son, Daniel Carron, was a passenger in a car that wrecked on Highway 67/167 near Cabot.
"He had graduated high school in May of 2007, and three months later, on August 11, he and another girl were killed in a car accident," she recalled. "The driver, she survived. My son and the other passenger were killed. They don't exactly know why or what happened. They were good kids."
"They took a lot, but one of things was my son's letterman jacket," she continued. "They can have everything. I'm not worried about any of the things, but I would just really love to have his jacket. Just please return the jacket. No questions asked. Nothing. I don't even need to know who you are. If we could find a way to anonymously drop it somewhere, that would be wonderful as well."
Despite her pleas for its return, she fears it may be gone forever.
"It's heartbreaking. It had his name on it, and I really don't understand why anyone would have any use for it when it's personalized."
The Cabot High School letter jacket is red with white sleeves. Her son also participated in band, and his name, David Carron, is printed on it.
The Letter Jacket can be anonymously returned to Cabot High School., and Jared Russell from Russell Honda said the jacket could be dropped off there as well. No questions will be asked.
The administration said they remember Daniel as an excellent student and want to help recover his jacket.
