Stolen Urn, Ashes Returned
An ID specialist has been called in to check for DNA and fingerprints.
The sheriff’s office says they used a media blitz asking for the public assistance, hoping it would put pressure on the burglar to return the urn. They believe the person didn’t know it was an urn, and thought it was a piece of art. They say they believe the person returned it because he was either afraid to display it as art, or “his conscience got to him.” At any rate, they say they are “happy that the victim has recovered her husband’s ashes.”
