Tucson woman needs help finding late brother's bike

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - Pamela Slavin lost her brother Fred to pancreatic cancer on December 12.

He had a passion for cycling and raced in several El Tours back in the mid 90s. 

"Cycling was like his favorite thing to do," Slavin said. 

A few days after he passed away she believes someone walked into Fred's midtown apartment and stole his TV and his beloved bike, a Motobecane. 

"All I care about is the bike, it was his prized possession." 

Slavin keeps pictures of her big brother pedaling through Tucson.

"I wear his rings, I wear his jewelry, I wear his shirts," she said. 

But, the tangibles don't ease the pain and confusion. 

It's terrible somebody would steal from somebody who passed away and to cause more grief for their family," Slavin said. "That's the hardest part, you know, to accept the fact there are people that don't care."  

She's hoping her faith and her wish for comfort and peace in the new year will lead to the biking coming home. 

"It's huge, it's huge," Slavin cried. "I have a lot of peace about the whole thing about losing him. But, the burglary cast a shadow on that." 

If you have any information on where the bike may be you are asked to call Tucson Police at 520-791-5059
