Precious items allegedly stolen from roadside memorial for tow truck driver

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) — Just one day after friends and family gathered to honor the life of a tow truck driver hit and killed by an alleged drunk driver, another tragedy struck.

They are now searching for the person responsible for vandalizing a memorial set up to honor the life of Troy McGuire. Friends and family had placed a shirt and a hat along the side of road to honor his life, but now they claim those items are missing.

In a Facebook post on Monday night from McGuire’s sister-in-law, Corsandra Yeatman, wrote:

All I got to say, who steals Troy McGuire Shirt and Hat off I75 today, my big brother stuff we put up there for a Memorial for us, his family and his friends is very disrespectful, just something else we did not need, someone stealing his stuff from a loving caring person who got his life taken from him and now someone going to take even more from [our] family, really if anyone knows or hear who did it please let me know.
