Miss­ing urn mys­tery twist

24 Hours Toronto - - News -

The case of a miss­ing urn took a strange twist over the week­end as the OPP re­ported that a pink urn con­tain­ing the ashes of a re­cently de­ceased woman had been re­cov­ered and re­turned to the fam­ily.

The Pem­broke de­tach­ment of the Up­per Ot­tawa Val­ley OPP are con­tin­u­ing their hunt for the thief. The odd bit has to do with how the urn was dis­cov­ered.

Po­lice be­gan their in­ves­ti­ga­tion Sept. 2 when the urn was stolen from a res­i­dence on Gar­den Street in Pem­broke. The fam­ily had been holding an es­tate/garage sale at the time.

The urn turned up a week later at an­other yard sale, wrapped in a paper towel and left on a ta­ble some­time dur­ing the sale. In­side the pack­age was a note urg­ing the finder to call the po­lice. Af­ter the host of the sec­ond yard sale fol­lowed through, po­lice re­turned the prop­erty.
