U-Haul With Urn Containing Baby's Ashes Stolen in Georgia

Police in Covington, Georgia, are hunting a man who they say stole a moving truck that had an urn inside containing a baby’s ashes.

Local news said the U-Haul contained an Air Force couple’s belongings – including the remains of their six-month-old son, who died five years ago.

The truck and trailer were taken from outside the LaQuinta Inn on Access Road early Wednesday, March 3, while Ben and Kassandra Benton slept, the Covington News said.

The truck was recovered, but it had been ransacked, the Covington News said. The urn was not found, and a reward for its recovery was being offered. Credit: Covington Police Department via Storyful
