BECKLEY, W.Va. -- A West Virginia woman is accused of stealing a hearse containing a body from a funeral home.

Beckley police tell media outlets the hearse's driver left the vehicle's door ajar and the engine running outside a local funeral Tuesday while he went to unlock the door to the building.

Angela Dehart, of Beaver, is accused of taking the hearse and driving it home. Police found the hearse and the body a couple hours later.

Police say the 23-year-old Dehart told investigators she and another person had been in the area in another vehicle. She got out of that vehicle and took the hearse.

DeHart faces charges of grand larceny and displacement of a body.

There was no telephone listing for Dehart in the Beaver area.

I mentioned this before, but it’s been a while, and this article triggered the memory.

YEARS ago the Readers Digest had an article about a driver transferring an empty hearse to a distant state. He had to get it there pronto, so drove all day. As night approached he picked up an Army guy hitchhiking and asked him to drive through Kansas while he took a nap in the back. (This was during the Korean War).

After a couple of hours the Army guy got tired and when he saw a sailor hitchhiking he gave the guy a lift, got on the passenger side and went to sleep while the swabbie drove on.

Around the middle of the night the original driver woke up and wanted a smoke. Unaware of the new driver, he reached through the curtain and said, “Got a match?”

The article ended by saying it took the wrecking crew a half hour to get the hearse out of the ditch.

Uggg—was she from ACORN trying to register a dead voter to vote Dem in 2012?
Register before burials-—those DemRats are an agressive bunch.

I’m just trying to imagine the thief’s thought process: “Oh look what somebody left sitting out with the engine running!”

And took it home.

Wonder if there’s enough mind left to make the withdrawal worth the sobriety...?

FTA: DeHart faces charges of grand larceny and displacement of a body.

So how much time do they cut off the sentence if you open the back gate, then floor it?

Not that I have a need to know, of course...

I wouldn't think so. Most women keep their cell phone in their purse.
