Julie Mott, a 25-year-old San Antonio woman, died in early August, but her body has yet to be located. Mott’s body was due to be cremated, but within hours of the wake, her corpse was stolen. Police are now reaching out to the public in hopes of finding the person or persons responsible for stealing Mott’s remains. A $20,000 reward has been put up by distraught family members and the funeral home.
According to a police report obtained by The San Antonio Express-News, a 20-something man, who has not been identified, had been "obsessed" with calling and texting Mott. He was also reportedly the last person seen leaving the funeral home after her service. Authorities have not released any additional details on the potential suspect.
It would be speculation at this point to comment on a possible motive, he says. But funeral home owner Robert Tips told the San Antonio Express-News that he and authorities "feel very strongly" that the person or persons responsible could have been ideologically opposed to cremation.
SAN ANTONIO -- A search party looking for the body of Julie Mott was stunned to turn up the remains of a person Saturday. However, in yet another bizarre twist in the case, San Antonio police said they don't believe the remains belong to her. The body was discovered around 10:30 a.m. in a wooded area off the beaten path around McAllister Park, police said.

TeAnother theory is that whoever stole the body could be someone who is opposed to cremation and did it to make a point. xt
Perhaps some family will find closure if an identification can be made.
