ST. LOUIS (AP) – A woman on a cross-country trip with her son has lost nearly all of her possessions, including more than $100,000 in cash, following a downtown car burglary.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that police continue to investigate the break-in that happened Saturday afternoon near the City Museum.

The victim, 32-year-old Priscilla Myco of Pennsylvania, took a job in Oregon and decided to pack everything into her Honda Fit. She and her 10-year-old son, Isaiah, were making the trip to their new home.

They stopped to see a friend in St. Louis and decided to visit the City Museum. She parked a couple of blocks away. They returned to their car to find a window smashed. A computer, clothes, jewelry and all of the money were taken.
