“It’s just the most violating thing to think that someone has been all over their belongings before they even realized what was happening is so upsetting,” a source told the outlet.
“The brazenness of doing it while they were in the house is terrifying, and obviously they’re heartbroken … This is their dream home and they love their life there as a family. Suddenly it feels tarnished, but they’re determined to get on with their lives.”
