Stolen CRV

It’s a white Honda CRV with a black trailer hitch. WA License # AKG1121

Got a press release from Everett Police this afternoon regarding a stolen Honda CRV that contained an urn with the ashes of a father inside. Here’s the scoop.

The Everett Police Department is investigating a vehicle theft in which the cremated remains of a family’s father were taken.

On Tuesday evening at about 5:30 p.m., a victim arrived home in the 11000 block of Evergreen Way after picking up the cremated remains of his father from a local funeral home. The remains were left inside the vehicle in a gold colored urn. The family had planned the memorial service for the next day, but the vehicle was stolen overnight.

The vehicle is a white, four-door, 1999 Honda CRV with WA license AKG-1121 and a black cargo trailer hitch.

The urn is described as a gold colored tin box about eight inches square.

The victim also reports that the vehicle contained a firearm and ammunition. Any potential suspects should be considered armed.

There are no images of the incident or suspects, but a similar vehicle is shown below.

Anyone with information about this vehicle theft is asked to call 911, the Everett Police Department TIP LINE at (425) 257-8450 or Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound at 1-800-222-TIPS.

    They found him!

    At some point late Saturday night or early Sunday morning, someone anonymously dropped off Richard’s ashes at Everett’s Evergreen Cemetery, according to members of the Graham family.

    Cemetery workers found an urn Sunday morning with a note attached explaining the ashes were Richard Graham’s. The urn, shaped like a 1928 Model T car, is now back on the mantle of Joyce’s house.
