Re: So my house got robbed today.
I lived "out in the country" on the outskirts of Louisville a few years ago and was robbed too. It's a humbling experience to say the least. You just feel violated and there is a 99.9% the criminals will never get caught.
As for your identity, I have been happy with identityguard.com.
As far as your insurance claim, the more pictures, receipts, etc you have for your stolen items, the better likelihood you will get a good return on your claim. I had a slew of power tools stolen but I had all the owner's manuals with the model numbers. I probably got full, if not more, value in return from the insurance company.
