Pictures show empty, partially open casket thrown in north Houston ditch: 'I feel violated'
Earlier this month, residents of a north Houston neighborhood made a disturbing discovery: an open casket sitting in a ditch.
Lloyd Tucker Jr. reported the casket to the police, hoping that it would be removed as soon as possible. Mr. Tucker discovered the casket outside his home and noted that it had not been there the night before. He believed it appeared to be tampered with and feared that someone was missing their casket.
Police investigated the casket, noted that it was empty, and left the scene. No cemeteries or funeral homes in the area reported any missing caskets or bodies.
