Woman pleads for burglar to return box containing late husband's ashesPosted: Updated:
A woman from South Amboy whose home was burglarized is pleading with the thieves to return one item, a box containing her late husband's ashes.
Jamie Stratton, niece of the victim, says burglars kicked down the front door, stole the box and jewelry that included a commemorative wedding band set.
Stratton says her aunt, Liz Stratton, "just wants the box to be returned," and the jewelry has no value compared to his ashes.
According to police, they are looking for a box with a registration number that should say "Gundrums Service Home for funerals".
Liz Stratton was away from Oct. 24 to Oct. 30, and the family isn't sure when the home was burglarized.
There's a $500 reward for information on its whereabouts.
