Ashes to ?

One source is an observation; two is a trend; three is a movement. So, we're watching an uptick in the trend of stealing fathers' ashes.

Naturally, we're also on alert for a movement. A "pretty box" containing ashes of the former commodore of the Puget Sound Yacht Club was stolen from his vacant retirement cabin: his daughters want him back. And, near Detroit, the dad who'd been riding in his son's trunk as a sack of ashes was snatched up.

No motive was apparent in either case, although it is not impossible paparazzi are staking out Keith Richard's house in case he has decided to snort father ashes that aren't his own. [Earlier: Fifth Commandment]
