ST. LOUIS (KTVI) - Enola Pevey says someone stole a truck that means everything to her especially the mementos left inside that remind her of her mother who died back in 2005.
Pevey says it all happened on Saturday night when the Berkeley artist went to her first art exhibit near Cherokee and Nebraska Streets to showcase her work. Pevey says between 7 pm and 11:30 pm that night someone stole her car keys from her purse, unlocked her black 2000 Ford Explorer and took off. She also says the worst part is she was using the art shows as therapy to get her life back on track after the death of her mother Anne Youngermann who was murdered during a robbery at a north St. Louis store in 2005. She reached out on Facebook to get help from the public.
'Basically I bought this with my own money and I`ve been fixing it up it still has issues. Part of the art thing is I was selling the art to make money so I could fix it better and it has personal effects that I can't replace." said Pevey
The truck has distinctive bumper stickers of horror movie icons on the back window and a picture of her mother in the glove box. Pevey is hoping to get the truck back in one piece because she`s on disability and only had liability insurance on the car.
'I still have two art shows to go this weekend that if I don`t have a car I can`t get to them and that`s sad because I love my art and want to share it with everybody.' Pevey said
