Muskego Suspects Arrested Who Allegedly Stole Safe with Ashes Inside

Arrests have been made in the burglary of the safe with cremated remains stolen on Christmas Eve in Muskego.

The suspects told investigators that they did not realize what they had, and disposed of anything they felt didn’t have any “value”.

On Thursday, December 24, 2015, Christmas Eve, Edward and Carol Bomback reported that their home had been burglarized.  During this burglary a safe was taken.  Among the other personal items and valuables in the safe were the cremated remains of the Bomback’s son, who had passed away in April 2015.  The Bombacks had offered a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects and the return of their son’s remains.

While the Bomback’s reward offer did not result in anyone coming forward, investigating officers were able to identify possible suspects and through continued investigation were able to recover some of the Bomback’s missing property and make two arrests in connection with this burglary.  Sadly, officers were unable to recover Chad’s remains. 

Shawn M. Davis, 28, and Stephanie Lofy, 27, who are both from Milwaukee, were arrested, booked on charges of burglary, and released.  Charges have been referred to the Waukesha County District Attorney’s Office.  Lofy and Davis had previously been employed to clean the Bomback’s home.
