Porterville Recorder - - HERITAGE -

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 fa­therin-law.

The U-haul was lo­cated af­ter po­lice searched for a black 2005 Chevy Trail­blazer SUV with Ok­la­homa li­cense plates.

Po­lice said the de­ceased man’s daugh­ter and her hus­band were on their way from Ok­la­homa to Kirt­land, New Mex­ico, to bury him.

No ar­rests have been made.
