Friends are still grieving the loss of a man who was brutally beaten during a home invasion robbery last September and died 9 days ago, they said someone broke into his house, adding to the heartbreak.

In addition to kicking in the door and causing damage to Donald Nelson's house in Mountain View, his friend Mickie Karr, who acted as his legal guardian said his beloved electric bicycle was taken some time this past Friday.

"It's just really sad, his life was taken from him, his memories were taken from him and now they've taken the things they loved most in this world, his bikes and it's wrong," Karr said.

While Karr said the state will eventually take possession of Nelson's house as he had no living relatives, she just wants his belongings returned to the property.

David Robinson told Channel 2 last week, he and Nelson spent a lot of time riding together and developed a love for e-bikes about 8 years ago.

"I kind of miss him right now because it's spring time right now and this is the time we'd normally be clicking off some miles and it really hurts because I'm riding alone now," Robinson said.

Anchorage Police Department did not respond to Channel 2's request for information about the break-in on Sunday.
