Thief steals wife's ashes from car in Phinney Ridgeon May 8, 2012 @ 6:39 pm (Updated: 7:44 pm - 5/8/12 )
Inside was a green urn with the ashes of Mark Matson's wife, Michelle. The San Diego man was about to start out on a camping trip to the Cascades
"Before she passed away, we discussed what we were going to do with her ashes, and she decided that she wanted me to spread them in some lakes she'd seen on the Pacific Crest Trail," Matson said.
Matson called police but he's hoping the thief discarded the urn and maybe a neighbor will spot it and contact him.
The small, green biodegradable urn is shaped like a pillow encircled with a white band of pressed floral paper.
