Thieves Seeking Cocaine Take Human Ashes Instead

June 05, 1993|Associated Press

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. — Burglars came in through the bathroom window. They didn't touch Nathan Radlich's television or his VCR. They left behind his radio and his watch.

But they made off with the cellophane-wrapped, grayish-white powder kept in a fishing tackle box at the head of his bed. The burglars stole the cremated remains of Radlich's sister, Gertrude.

Detectives say they believe the powder was mistaken for cocaine.
