A mother has been left devastated after a heartless thief raided her 14-year-old’s bedroom which she had left untouched since he died in March.
CCTV footage of the sickening incident has been viewed more than a million times after it was shared by the boy's aunt.
Sophie Gaulstain said valuables were stolen from the property in Stockport at about 2pm on Wednesday.
She said the family had been left “absolutely heartbroken” as the room had been left untouched since the teenager passed away in March.
“Valuables can be replaced. We intended for my beloved nephew's bedroom to stay exactly the way he left it, this f****** scumbag has taken that from us,” she wrote.
Greater Manchester Police says it is now investigating.
