A Florida man is set to serve eight years in jail after he was convicted of putting his nose where it didn't belong – an urn of human ashes that he stole from a home he'd broken into.
Jose Diaz-Marrero and two accomplices ransacked the home, stealing thousands of dollars worth of jewelry and electronics, but the victim was most upset at the disappearance of two urns containing the ashes of her late Great Danes and one containing the remains of her father. After cops tracked him down, Diaz-Marrero told them he thought the urns contained crushed pills and decided to taste and snort the contents.
The human remains were found, discarded, by the side of a lake, and returned to the man's daughter. (Ocala Star)
