Man who isn’t Keef Richards thinks human ashes are cocaine
SOME bright spark has nearly ended up tooting a whole dead human up their nose after they stole human ashes, thinking they were cocaine.
William Cantrell (no relation to Blu) took an Xbox belonging to his neighbour, as well as the box containing the remains of the victim’s mother. The 28-year-old’s grandmother Wanda said: “William thought it was drugs. He thought he’d found him a box of cocaine is what he thought.”
William’s mother Kathy added:
“They just made it sound like he’s a bad, terrible person who broke in this house and stole this woman’s ashes. I’m not saying he’s not guilty, but he didn’t know what he was stealing.”
William – arrested for burglary – didn’t appear to have opened the bag of ashes inside the box, as it was returned with the original tie intact.
Maybe, if he weighed-up having a toot, the note indicating the date of birth and death of the deceased, as well as her name, put him off.
