As the family of Carlton Carter lays him to rest later today, detectives from the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department will be investigating a break-in at Carter's home. 

Carter, 57, was one of the three ABB Power employees shot dead by Timothy Hendron last week

Carter's family left their home on Saturday night for a three-day absence, and returned yesterday morning -- only to discover they'd been fleeced.
Police say the burglar(s) busted through two back windows of the Carter home on Henner Place, and proceeded to steal a DVD player, a computer, a camera and two watches. 

There were no witnesses, but the investigation is ongoing.
