Vehicle burglar may have mistaken father’s ashes for drugs, victim says

A Cape Coral man’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 father’s ashes for drugs.

“I’m just trying to think about what they thought when they opened the box up and saw a baggie full of ashes,” said Carraway. “I almost wonder if they opened the baggie up and tasted it to see if it was drugs or something.”

Carraway’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 father’s favorite fishing spot.
