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.
