“I spoke with (the victim) who advised that her family left around 6 p.m.,” the report says. “She said they left in a little bit of a hurry and must have forgotten to lock the door. She said when they arrived home they found the front door partially standing open. She said no one was found inside and the rest of the doors and windows were locked and intact.”
