A source tells Action News that Kraft reported having items stolen from her home a few days ago. Police executed a search warrant in southwest Philadelphia on Wednesday and said they recovered some of her belongings, including jewelry and designer bags. It’s not clear if this is connected to her homicide.
Police have not announced any arrests, but officials said people who live in the area should not be concerned.
“We never had that type of thing in Ardmore. Hardly ever. It’s enough to make me cry,” said Dave Farina. “I’m praying for them that they find out who did it. And bring them to justice.”
Prosecutors said there “doesn’t appear” to be any concern for nearby residents and asked anyone with information to call Lower Merion police at 610-649-1000.
