The childhood home of Louisville native Muhammad Ali is near completion but now its missing an air conditioner unit thanks to a theft.  The home on Grand Ave in West Louisville was renovated to resemble of the home in which the Clay family lived in prior to Ali’s successful boxing career and humanitarian efforts throughout the world.

The owners of the Muhammad Ali Home Museum tell me that they are offering a $500 reward and released some photos and video of the theft.

If you have any information you are asked to call 574-LMPD.
