why are you asking who keeps 10k in cash in their house, it's their right to keep any amount of cash they want in their home. Why do you always judge the motives of the victim?

MD Mom: Because it's stupid to do so, that's why. Categorically stupid.

When police investigate a crime they must leave no stone unturned. By that I mean that a homeowner reporting a large amount of cash that cannot be traced raises red flags for a police investigator. Insurance fraud is a possibility in any crime where large amounts of cash are involved. Then there is the drug connection, something that police cannot overlook. Of course the story does not give many details of the investigation so all of this is pure speculation. But this kind of thing cannot be ignored as a possibility.

Yes, let's keep obsessing over the victims possessions. Why would they dare keep valuables in their home, especially worth more than any of their concerned neighbors would have in their own homes. Or let's accuse them of being drug dealers, or defrauding the insurance company because they couldn't just have been victims of a burglary! No, they seduced and enticed the would be thief into their home. Who cares about what the burglar looked like or what method he used to enter the house or if there were any other clues that the neighborhood should be on the lookout for - let's keep laser focus on the AMOUNT of goods that were stolen and continue to watch CSI to hone our skills to deduce that the real criminal lives within!!
