“Man steals car — and dead body”
A thief got more than he bargained for when he stole a van that belonged to an undertaker.
There was a dead body in the back.
Police say Kijon Griffen, 23, stole the mortuary van from a crematorium parking lot on Wednesday and led police on a chase through Atlanta in Georgia.
As he sped out of the parking lot, the back door to the van opened and a body on a gurney rolled out.
Stan Henderson, the van’s owner and mortician, said: “It’s ridiculous that the dead can’t even rest.”Police chased Griffin until the van hit some parked cars. The suspect then fled the van and ran into a nearby forest. Griffin is still at large.
