A Nottinghamshire Police spokesperson says they are keeping an "open mind" over the possibility that Andy Turner's family house may have been targeted by thieves who knew about his mother's funeral.
"Police are investigating a break-in at a house in Nottingham Road, Hucknall, that happened some time between 2pm and 8.30pm last night.
"Thieves gained entry via the back of the house. Keys and a white Range Rover Sport with the registration number L10 RUN was stolen, along with a number of other items including a laptop.
"Detectives are appealing for anyone with information or anyone who sees the vehicle to contact them on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
