Cremated Ashes Found in Fast-Food Drive-Through



Workers at a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant discovered the cremated ashes of a man who died last December -- in the drive-through takeout lane.
How the ashes got there is a mystery, police said, but they weren't waited on.

An employee noticed a suspicious box sitting in the middle of the drive-through lane on Thursday. Officers who investigated found a certificate of cremation on top of the box. Inside, they found a plastic bag with the ashes of Robert Rogers, who died Dec. 12.

The man's daughter told police the box and the ashes had been inside a bronze urn in her home, which had been stolen.

Police said the urn's thief or thieves probably tossed the box out of a car. Officers had no suspects.
