A Cape Coral manâ€™s vehicle was ransacked and the ashes of his dead father were dumped in his front lawn, authorities said.
Wayne C. Carraway, 35, believes a burglar broke into his 1987 Ford Bronco and mistook a cedar box containing a plastic bag full of his fatherâ€™s ashes for drugs.
â€œIâ€™m just trying to think about what they thought when they opened the box up and saw a baggie full of ashes,â€ said Carraway. â€œI almost wonder if they opened the baggie up and tasted it to see if it was drugs or something.â€
Carrawayâ€™s father was killed in a traffic accident in 1995. He was planning to spread the ashes along the Fakahatchee Strand in the Florida Everglades, his fatherâ€™s favorite fishing spot.
