GLENDALE (CBSLA.com) — Thieves made off with a bag containing the ashes of a family matriarch and relatives say they’re desperate to get her back.

“It’s really painful. I just want her back. I just want the ashes back,” said Lily Legino, daughter-in-law to the deceased.

The thieves took a purple velvet bag, containing an urn and the ashes, while they were ransacking the Legino family’s vehicle. The minivan was left unlocked while it was parked overnight in the 1200 block of Ruberta Avenue.

The bag had been in the vehicle for three days.

“We were getting ready to do a ceremony. I had just picked up the ashes,” Lily Legino said.

The family admits their sense of security has been violated but what they find most painful is that their great-grandmother is away from her final resting place.

“I hope they have some sort of heart and they [leave] the package somewhere where we can reclaim it,” said son-in-law Steve Legino. “We want her back so we can put her to rest.”

Cremation is barbaric. It desecrates the body and is disrepectful to the dead. I feel no sympathy for these morons who left human remains in a car for three days only to have them stolen.

Typical.

/rant off.

No one to blame but yourself.
