Man Holds Girlfriend's Grandfather's Ashes for $40 Ransom


Following an argument with his girlfriend, a Florida man took her grandfather’s ashes and held them ransom for forty bucks.

The girlfriend relented and gave him the forty dollars in exchange for information on the whereabouts of her grandfather’s ashes.  The man was later arrested on battery charges for striking his girlfriend in the mouth with her house key and grabbing her arms and throat.
