Cremated remains stolen in Florida

A Florida woman says a plastic bag that contained her uncle's cremated remains was stolen during a burglary. Denise Littler of Bradenton kept the ashes in a wooden box. She found the box after her home was burglarized Friday, but the ashes were gone.

Manatee County sheriff's spokesman Dave Bristow says detectives determined that a video game console, two handguns, an underwater camera, a flute, a music stand and some model cars were also taken from Littler's home.

Bristow tells The Tampa Tribune it was a fairly typical burglary, "except for the ashes."

Denise Littler stored them next to another box that contained her father's cremated remains. Those ashes were not disturbed.
