Today’s Must Read: AJ reports second urn with stolen ashes found
The second of two urns containing the remains of the late Marvin Kent Hockabout has been found, the Alameda Journal’s Peter Hegarty is reporting. Hegarty says a groundskeeper found the urn outside Christ Episcopal Church on Friday.
The urns were in a backpack stolen from the Santa Clara Avenue church on March 5, a half hour before a service for Hockabout was set to begin, Hegarty reports. One of the urns was found by a passer-by in Oakland and returned a few days after they were taken.
