Woman Allegedly Steals Boyfriend's Ashes
PORTAGE, Wis. - Sheriff's deputies have arrested a woman for digging up her dead boyfriend's ashes from a Columbia County cemetery more than 10
years ago and drinking the beer that was buried with him, possibly out of spite for his family.
Karen Stolzmann, now 44, was arrested Tuesday in a case Columbia County Detective Wayne Smith calls "twisted and bizarre."
Sheboygan County District Attorney Joe De Cecco said Thursday he would likely determine this week if possession charges should be filed in his county
since the urn was found at Stolzmann's Sheboygan home. A call to the Columbia County district attorney's office was not immediately returned
Stolzmann has already been charged with a misdemeanor count of concealing stolen property.
Michael Hendrickson, 27, died in 1992 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His family contacted authorities three weeks ago because they found out his
remains had been stolen.
An exhumation revealed Hendrickson's cremated remains were missing from Cambria Cemetery in Cambria. Beer and cigarettes that were buried with him
were also missing. Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
I don't know why but I find the fact that he was burried with Beer and cigarettes hilarious.
