A funeral home employee left a hearse with a body inside it unattended Friday morning, presumably not expecting anyone would be looking to take a hearse.
They were wrong.
The Brazos County Sheriff’s Office in Texas tweeted Friday that a hearse had been stolen around 5:30 a.m. And while the hearse still hasn’t been found, according to KAGS, the body and the stretcher it was on had been dumped on the side of the road.
Never miss a local story.
The body was found around 7 a.m. when a passing truck driver spotted it, according to the Houston Chronicle.
The body was returned to the funeral home. The thief has not been identified.
