According to Global News, the family said the theft also tore some skin off Hicks’ hand in the process.

Hicks’ daughter, Vel McKee, told the Odessa American that her and her sister Brenda only left their mother’s body for a short time period after touching up their mother’s hair and makeup when the incident occurred.

“We had only been gone for 15 minutes. It’s just heartbreaking,” McKee told the Odessa American.
