Father’s ashes stolen from Adams County home

Posted by: KLKN Newsroom

A family is asking whoever burglarized a home in south-central Nebraska's Adams County to return the ashes of the family patriarch.

The Hastings Tribune reports that a box of cremated remains was among items stolen during a daytime burglary on Friday.

Adams County sheriff's investigator Glenn Kemp says the thief or thieves could take the box to a local clergy member or someone else who could keep the identity of the thief or thieves secret.

Kemp says “the family would like their dad back.''
