Stolen van carrying dead body recovered in Jacksonville
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (CBS12) —
Police in Jacksonville recovered a stolen van, not just any stolen van, but one that happened to be carrying a dead body.
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office put out an alert for the 2006 silver Honda Odyssey van on Monday.
The van belonged to a crematorium. The driver left the keys in the car with the engine running when someone stole it.
"The vehicle was transpoting a dead body for work purposes when taken," wrote JSO on Facebook.
Police found the van Tuesday afternoon. It was abandoned several miles away with the body still in the back.
