Missing a casket? Authorities have fun with bizarre case

By  | 

FRIENDSHIP, Wis. (WSAW) The Sheriff's Department in Adams County said they're hoping to find the owner of a missing casket in an usual lost and found case.

Officer LeBreck says a property owner preparing for deer season found the casket Oct. 7 in the Township of Quincy near Friendship in the ditch near County Highway Z.

He said the casket was hallowed out and appears to have fallen off a truck or trailer. Investigators said used caskets are sometimes sold to private individuals for haunted houses.

The department humorously stated on Facebook, “We’re pretty certain it did not come out of the ground, and there have been no reports of zombies in the area. So, if this fell off the back of your truck over the weekend, get in touch with us. It’s a little creepy, and we’d like to get it back to you.”
