Stolen van carrying dead body recovered in Florida


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (CBS12) — Police in Jacksonville recovered a stolen van, not just any stolen van, but one that happened to be carrying a dead body.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office put out an alert for the 2006 silver Honda Odyssey van on Monday.

The van belonged to a crematorium. The driver left the keys in the car with the engine running when someone stole it.

"The vehicle was transporting a dead body for work purposes when taken," wrote JSO on Facebook.

Police found the van Tuesday afternoon. It was abandoned several miles away with the body still in the back.
