BRYAN, Texas – Authorities in Texas say a hearse was stolen when the driver stopped at a fast-food restaurant, and the body later was found dumped on the side of a road.
The police in Bryan, about 90 miles northwest of Houston, says an employee of a funeral home stopped for a bite early Friday and a person jumped into the hearse while it was unattended and drove away.
The body that was in the vehicle was found by a passer-by about an hour and a half later, along with the gurney.
The body was placed along the side of a rural road a few kilometers away from the restaurant.
The police says the investigation is ongoing and the hearse remains missing.
