Little more than one week after Teen Mom 3‘s Mackenzie Douthit-McKee and Josh McKee welcomed baby girl Jaxie, the family’s house was burglarized to the bare bones.
Mackenzie’s mom, Angie Douthit, said the perpetrators took virtually everything.
“The idiots took all of Jaxis new baby clothes, all of her baby items, high chair, bath, swing, etc.,” Angie said on Facebook. “They took all of Josh and mics Christmas clothes, lamps, hunting items, washer and dryer, and had everything boxed up ready to come back and get the rest. I mean EVERYTHING.”
A friend added the thieves went out of their ways to damage the house: “Everything was trashed. Picture frames broken everywhere on the floor. The island in the kitchen was torn up and the couch was turned upside down for some reason.”
Although the crimes seem senseless, people close to the family say the criminals likely follow Mackenzie on social media.
“It had to be someone that saw they were out,” Jodi McKee commented on Facebook. “When she posted it on Facebook and knew they wouldn’t be home for a while. So I wouldn’t look too far out of Facebook friends.”
Another source told Radar Online the robbers were likely aware the young family was going to be away from home for the day.
“Josh was working at the rodeo in Kellyville, Oklahoma, which is two hours away, so they were gone for at least six hours,” the friend said. “No one was hurt so that’s the most important thing, but they literally took everything they needed. It’s a horrible violation.”
Despite the upsetting and unsettling incident, the family is staying positive.
Im shocked, heart broken, & creeped out by what happened.But through thick & thin my family will stick together & make it through anything.

Angie expressed the same sentiment on Facebook, “So saddened today, but not destroyed… I know these people need Jesus and lots of prayer.”
Fortunately, the community is rallying around the McKees: Dozens commented they will contribute baby clothes, toys and household items.
