Mike and Christina Wallen were killed along with their pilot on Jan. 14 when their single-engine plane crashed outside Lincoln. The victims’ identities were made public the next day.

On Thursday, relatives discovered that a burglar had taken property valued at about $600, including collections of Barbie dolls and Cabbage Patch dolls in their original cartons.

The burglar also turned off the furnace, allowing water pipes to freeze and burst, relatives said.

A suspect has been arrested.
