Suspect Steals Ring From Corpse
ODESSA, Texas (AP) — Police in West Texas are trying to find a woman seen on surveillance video stealing a ring from a corpse at a funeral home.
Odessa police on Monday announced the search for the woman seen on security images entering a viewing room at Sunset Memorial Gardens & Funeral Home, reaching into an open casket and fumbling to remove something from the female corpse.
The suspect late Friday afternoon spent more than a minute alone in the viewing room as she reaches into the lower part of the open casket and takes something from the body.
The suspect then walks out of the room. Odessa police say she drove off in a car. The theft was discovered the following day.
Police didn't immediately return a message Tuesday.
