“Why would you do that?” asked Deb Gordon, whose mother’s urn was stolen. “That’s, like morbid. It’s one of the lowest things I think you could possibly do is steal from a gravesite.”

The containers disappeared from Greenlawn Memorial Park, but authorities aren’t sure when they were taken.

The Fort Wayne Police Department is investigating.

The 248 urns are worth $124,000.
