The past weekend a Lubbock family returned to their home only to find it ransacked. Among the items stolen were a television, jewelry, and purses, but most importantly, their beloved patriarch’s ashes had been stolen. The family filed a police report, and officials have dusted for fingerprints, hoping to catch the people who did this and return the ashes back to the family.
