Molly Ticehurst’s family has been dealt another cruel blow, with thieves stealing precious and irreplaceable items from her home just days after she was allegedly murdered.

Among the items taken from the Forbes property where Molly, 28, lived with her six-year-old son was a gold nugget pendant given to her by her father, Tony Ticehurst, who picked the piece because it looked like a woman holding a child.

Molly was found dead at the property on 22 May.

Her former partner has since been charged with her murder, as well as breaching an apprehended domestic violence order. He was on bail for charges of sexual intercourse without consent and of stalking and intimidating the young mother, according to court documents.

The property was a crime scene and controlled by police for a number of days after Molly died. Tradespeople and other workers also attended the property before her family noticed a number of Molly’s things had been taken.

Among the missing objects was a gold necklace with a pendant given to Molly last year by her father.

“The necklace, I gave it to her. I bought it from a gold detector in Western Australia,” he said.

“The reason I gave it to her was the nugget looked like a woman holding a baby.

“That could have been kept for her son to give to his fiance one day. I know that’s far in the future, but it could have been his.”

Leather travel bags, an expensive hairdryer, shoes and a bracelet were also missing when the Ticehursts were able to get back into the home once police had completed their work.

Tony Ticehurst said the cruel act had “taken the final tie that we had to our girl”.

“They are mementoes and they can’t be replaced,” he said. “It’s more than money.”

Police have commenced an investigation into the alleged theft.

“Officers attached to central west police district have commenced inquiries after reports personal items were allegedly stolen from a home on Young Street, Forbes between Friday 26 April and Monday 6 May 2024,” a spokesperson said.

Investigating officers have called on people with information about the incident to contact the Forbes police station or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
