Sue LaDeur said she returned to her house in Elmhurst Tuesday afternoon to find it had been broken into and ransacked. Among the items taken was a small square white box that contained the remains of her infant son, William “Billy” Pax LaDeur, who died in 2014.

“It happened five years ago, but this brings it all up, to have him taken from us again,” she said, weeping at her kitchen table. “Now he has been stolen from us.”

“Billy didn’t deserve this,” added her husband, Jim LaDeur.

A photo of Billy adorns the wall of the LaDeur home, adjacent to a baby picture of his twin brother, Matt, who is now in preschool. The couple also have two older children.

The pregnancy was tumultuous early on, the mother recounted, with Billy suffering from excessive fluid retention in the womb. The parents feared for both babies because Billy was pushing on Matt in utero, and they were born precariously early at about 31 weeks.

Although Billy was heavily sedated in the hospital, his mother recalled how his little foot used to kick at the sound of her voice. His father remembered touching his newborn son’s arm and seeing the monitors respond, an uptick in his heart rate and other vital signs that seemed to indicate he recognized their presence.

“You hope for the best,” Sue LaDeur said. “You pray. But we knew how sick he was.”

Billy died in the hospital 10 days after his birth.

“We held him until he passed,” his mother said. “We fought. We fought for him then. And we’ll fight for him now and do everything we can.”

Elmhurst police said in a news release that the burglary occurred between 8 a.m. and 3:40 p.m., and they believe the offender entered the home by breaking in through a side window.

The couple described the box as a small white square container — about an inch high and roughly 3 inches long and wide — which might be mistaken for a jewelry box. A label includes the name of the crematorium.

The LaDeurs are begging the thief — or any good Samaritan who might somehow come across the remains — to mail the box to the crematorium or take it to any funeral parlor. The ashes could also be left at any police or fire station, the couple said.

The Georgia parents of a baby boy are pleading for thieves to return the silver box they stole, which contains his ashes . It is a sentiment echoed by other grieving parents who have ashes stolen from their homes . In January, a mother from Bakersfield, California, pleaded for the return of a pink urn

They added that the remains are kept in a bag marked by a metal tag with an identification number, so the ashes could be returned even if the bag is separated from the white box.

A few other items were taken from the home, including some collector coins, according to police. The LaDeurs said they don’t care about any of those possessions. They just want their son’s ashes back.

“It has no value to anyone else,” Sue LaDeur said. “But to us, it is invaluable.”

They box was kept on a dresser in the couple’s bedroom, surrounded by the few remaining items from Billy’s short life: His baby blanket. A handmade knit cap. A teddy bear. A bottle filled with holy water from his baptism.

A statue of the Virgin Mary used to look upon his remains, but now gazes at a dusty outline of where the box once rested.

The mother and father planned to one day bury Billy’s remains beside their own graves.

“It’s your baby,” Sue LaDeur said. “He should stay with you. A baby doesn’t get separated from his parents.”

“He lives in our hearts,” Jim LaDeur added. “But this box is something that connects him with us. … We just want to get this back.”
