    TX - Body of Julie Mott, 25, stolen from mortuary, 15 Aug 2015

    San Antonio Express-News:

    Police: Woman's body stolen from casket in San Antonio

    SAN ANTONIO — Investigators are scouring the city for any clue that could lead them to the body of a 25-year-old woman that was stolen from a funeral home on the Northwest Side last week.
    ---
    “In my 22 years in law enforcement this is the first time I have ever heard of this happening,” San Antonio Police Department Sgt. Javier Salazar said.
    ---
    “It would be speculation to even assume that it was just one person. It could have been two or several,” he said. “Until we get that crucial piece of evidence leading us to just the right person or people, we just won’t know.”

    Mission Park Funeral Chapels owner Robert Tips said authorities believe the individual responsible for the theft may have an ideological opposition to the cremation process, as opposed to traditional burial.

    “We feel very strongly that there’s a difference of opinion there,” he said.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    Very.

    Will be interesting to see if "opposition to cremation" conjecture holds up, or if this is a case of something even more nefarious.

    Ex-News one working okay for me but did take a bit to open at first -- site has changed layout recently and some links a bit sluggish still. It does feature a video of Sgt. Salazar's statement about the case.

    TX - 25-year-old woman's remains stolen from funeral home

    A $20,000 reward is being offered after someone stole the remains of 25-year-old Julie Mott from Mission Park Funeral Chapels North in San Antonio, Texas.

    A funeral was held for the young woman, who died of cystic fibrosis, August 15 and police believe someone stole her remains after it ended but before the chapel was locked up for the night, as there was no sign of a break-in.

    I'm presuming this poor young woman was cremated, otherwise how the heck was someone allowed to get in there and remove a coffin without being noticed?

    The funeral home hosts both burials and cremations.

    A grieving family is seeking closure after someone stole their petite daughter's body out of her casket at a Texas funeral home before she could be cremated following her funeral service.
    Julie Mott died earlier this month from cystic fibrosis and the 25-year-old's body was stolen after her funeral service last Saturday at the Mission Park North Funeral Chapel in San Antonio.
    The funeral was held on what would have been the young woman's 26th birthday.

    Who does this? Why would someone want the girls body? Someone would have to be pretty twisted to steal a body.
    I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

    They are looking into leads and do have person of interest. Also family said there was a person obsessed with her that had been calling sending text etc up until her death. And was at funeral.
