Police are appealing for help after a burglary at an address in Victoria Road, Sandown sometime between Tuesday, January 21 and Sunday, January 26.
A number of items were taken in the burglary including a brown metal cash tin with ‘Dad’ printed on it containing £300-£500 in pound coins, a gold sovereign ring, and a plain gold wedding band.
– Det Con Katy Lee
The occupant of the property, a 60-year-old man, is the grandfather of 14-year-old Kiri Jade Hodgekinson who died very recently in a road traffic collision on the Isle of Wight. It is believed that this burglary may have happened on the day of Kiri's funeral as people had access to the address to use facilities and offer condolences. The cash tin in particular is fairly distinctive and would have been quite heavy. If anyone is aware of someone recently coming into possession of items matching this description please contact us.”
Inspector Terry Clawson said: "The page has since been taken down but has already caused unbearable upset for Kiri-Jade's family and friends.
"We're taking this matter very seriously and investigating it from a criminal perspective.
"We're working with Facebook and following other lines of inquiries and we will be taking appropriate action.
"If you have any information that can assist with our inquiries, please contact us directly. If you come across any similar sites, please also let us know and avoid commenting on them."
Kiri-Jade Hodgkinson died after the car she was travelling in was involved in a collision on the Mersley Down road on the Isle of Wight.
In a statement, her family said: “Kiri-Jade is a loving 14-year-old girl with a zest for life. She is adored by her loving mother Carly and her 8-year-old sister Megan. “Kiri-Jade is part of an extended family who all miss her dreadfully."
Police are appealing for information about an offensive Facebook page that was set up after a teenager died on the Isle of Wight. 14-year-old Kiri-Jade Hodgkinson was killed in a car crash last week on the Mersley Down Road.
The page has since been taken down, and the Hodgkinson family said it has already caused unbearable upset amongst friends and the family. Hampshire Police are now considering it as a criminal matter.

The arrested man has been released on bail until Tuesday, January 14, pending further enquiries.
Police have released an image of a man after a spate of burglaries in Hampshire. He was one of four men seen after a house in Avenue Road was broken into on November 20. All four men were white, with two in their mid to late twenties and a third in his late 40s with a 'worn' face.
PC Tom Whittle said: 'We are also investigating a further seven burglaries in the Cove area of Farnborough which happened on November 15 and 20. All took place between 3pm and 6pm and entry was gained by forcing rear doors.
'We would also like to hear from anyone who has seen a silver or white Volkswagen Bora or Passat, which was seen in the area before the burglaries took place.' Anyone with any information is asked to contact PC Whittle at Aldershot Police Station on 101 or the Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111.
More than 40 police officers across Hampshire have taken part in a day of action to enforce new legislation around the illegal trade of scrap metal.
The Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 came into effect on October 1 and brought in new measures requiring traders to ask for photographic ID, and to sign up for a new licence with their local authority. Today marked the end of a two-month registration period.
Officers visited scrap metal dealers to ensure awareness and compliance with the new rules, working alongside local authorities, the Environment Agency and British Telecom. Metal was seized for further examination, along with invoice records, to ensure dealers are complying with new laws.
– Inspector Jackie Willson, Hampshire Constabulary
Today’s day of action is just the start of the enforcement action taking place across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight following the introduction of the new Scrap Metal Dealers’ Act.
The act affects scrap yard dealers along with mobile collectors of metal, who should all take the time to make themselves aware of their responsibilities and listen to any warnings. This type of enforcement action is ongoing and we will be visiting all of our sites across the two counties in the weeks and months to come."
