Sometime between 11:45 a.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 21, a residential burglary took place at the home of Dr. Elizabeth (Liz) Rhea. It appears the burglar(s) entered the back door of her Murfreesboro.
A large quantity of extremely expensive jewelry, coins, flatware and other items were stolen from the victim. The estimated value of the items stolen is in excess of $108,000. Color paper photographs (non-digital) of some of the unique jewelry are available upon request.
