HENRYVILLE — A southern Indiana woman who lost her home in last year's deadly tornado outbreak says thieves stripped her rebuilt home of much of her possessions.

Henryville resident Jennifer McConahay was planning to move into her rebuilt home this weekend. She tells WLKY-TV that most of her things had already been moved into her home when someone kicked in its back door Tuesday night.

McConahay says the thief or thieves stole TVs, computer equipment, jewelry boxes, a knife collection and other items that had survived the March 2012 tornadoes that killed 13 people in southern Indiana.

Among the items stolen was a coin collection she inherited from her brother, who died in October.

McConahay says she's most upset by the loss of "the things that I can't replace."
