Thief Steals Ashes Of Iowa Woman's Father

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — A Waterloo woman is asking the thief who broke into her home to return the oak box containing her father's ashes.

Suzanne Young's father, Edwin Ireland, died eight years ago.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier says two weeks ago, her home was burglarized and the thief took off with the urn containing her father's remains.

The burglar struck early Sept. 16 while Young was spending the night with a friend.

The bandit took jewelry boxes from the top of a dresser, as well as the wooden box containing the ashes.

Young suspects it was mistaken for a jewelry box.

No arrests have been made.
