Jon Gosselin's Christmas spirit was ruined Saturday, when he retuned home from sharing the holiday with his eight children to find his New York City apartment had been ransacked.
"[He] called me this afternoon...when he entered his apartment in Manhattan and was horrified, disheartened and saddened to observe the devastation of his furniture, clothing and personal belongings, which were apparently slashed with a butcher knife by a very troubled and sick perpetrator," Gosselin's lawyer, Mark Jay Heller, said in a statement Saturday. "Jon immediately contacted me and facilitated the able assistance of the New York City Police Department who immediately dispatched an experienced detective to Jon’s apartment."
In addition to having his CD player, coffee maker and Wii game system stolen, some of the reality star's clothing, luggage and bedding was slashed. There was also a note "speared" into a wooden dresser.
“The police department seized a note that had been affixed to Jon’s bedroom dresser by a butcher knife that was speared through the note into the wooden dresser. The note will be forensically analyzed by a handwriting expert,” the statement continued. “At this time, I will not release the contents of the note or the signator, however, both Jon and I have determined that the perpetrator must be vigorously prosecuted on felony charges.”
"The greatest damage from this vicious, mean-spirited and heartless crime was perpetrated not on Jon’s property and possessions, but on Jon Gosselin himself, who experienced a traumatic, emotional, roller coaster ride having just shared a joyful family gathering with his children during their Christmas."
