ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Police say thieves have stolen an SUV and an attached U-Haul trailer — with a casket inside — outside an Albuquerque motel.
Albuquerque police say the heist occurred early Monday at a Residence Inn and the casket was later found not too far from the site it was taken.
Authorities say the casket contained the body of the victim’s father-in-law.
The U-Haul was located after police searched for a black 2005 Chevy Trailblazer SUV with Oklahoma license plates.
