Deaf Woman Gets Robbed Twice in 2 Weeks

Updated: Monday, February 25 2013, 08:25 PM EST
UPDATE:  The owner of these dogs, Pam Estes, was robbed again today.

This is just two weeks to the day when she came home to find her champion dog killed.

She went back to her home to check on it since she had been staying with a friend after the last break-in.

When she arrived, she found the burglars in the back.  They yelled and took off on foot.

The burglars were trying to steal a laptop but they dropped it while running.

Other neighbors as well as Columbus police officers chased them, but the burglars got away.

Anyone with information is urged to call police at 645-4545.

Eight-year-old Shaughnessy was also a certified therapy dog, and would visit students at the Columbus School For the Deaf.

Three other dogs in the home were not harmed during the burglary.

The suspects also stole laptops, jewelry, and photos of Shaughnessy, which were stored in a computer.

"To steal things is one thing," Pam told ABC 6/FOX 28. "To steal a life is something else."

Columbus Police are investigating the crime.  The burglars remain on the loose.
