A Lack of Burning Desire

It was sad enough when Julie Mott died at just 25 years old, from cystic fibrosis. After her funeral at a San Antonio, Texas, mortuary owned by a family friend, “someone came in and stole Ms. Mott’s remains,” says police Sgt. Javier Salazar. “That person remains at large,” and so does the body, taken from her casket; the family is pleading for its return. “This is a person that I know,” said the owner of Mission Park Funeral Home, Dick Tips. “This is a person that I know and I want her back.” It’s unclear how someone got the body out without anyone seeing it, as the mortuary was open for business at the time. “We think it is possible that the fact that someone didn’t believe in the cremation process, versus the traditional burial process,” Tips says. He offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to the culprit’s arrest. A special phone number has been publicized to take leads. (RC/KSAT San Antonio) ...Yep: a Tips Line.
