Mother's stolen ashes returned to woman
ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - December 15, 2011 (WPVI) -- A stolen urn containing the ashes of her mother has been returned to a New Hampshire woman, who had been taking the container to bingo games for good luck.
A local television station reports that police said the urn was returned to Diane Bozzi sometime between Monday night and Tuesday morning. They have no suspects.
Police said the urn was stolen from Bozzi's van last week in Rochester by someone targeting unlocked cars. She said the urn was in a bag she was planning to take to a bingo game.
Bozzi pleaded for the urn's return. She and her mother loved playing bingo together. Before her mother died in 2002, Bozzi promised her she would take some of her ashes with her to play. Her mother agreed, saying she would bring Bozzi luck.
