Thieves Swipe Suburban Working as a Hearse and Dump the Body
There wasn’t anything particularlyÂ bizarreÂ happening within the automotive realm last week, so our Freaky Friday posting was absent from its usual rotation. However, while our writing staff was finishing itsÂ day,Â two car thieves threw a Hail Mary of weirdness down the field for a touchdown.
A beige Chevrolet Suburban owned by aÂ contractor working for Daniel & Sons Funeral Home was transporting a corpseÂ when witnesses claim 28-year-old Tanya Albrecht stole it from a convenience store parking lot inÂ Bryan, Texas. The SUV had been left unattended with the keys in the ignition, presumably because the owner assumed nobody would want to steal a car with a dead body in the back.Â
Whether or not Albrecht was aware of the vehicle’s cargo is unclear. We normally associate corpse haulers with a hearse or ambulance, so she might have received quite the shock when she peered into the rearview mirror for the first time. We at least know she didn’t want to keep the body. According to KBTX, policeÂ discovered the former individualÂ dumped with a stretcher near a rural road in Brazos County.
A Brazos County Sheriff’s Deputy spotted theÂ SuburbanÂ a few hours later and arrestedÂ Albrecht and 27-year-old Adam Crow, who has his own last name tattooed onto his neck.Â The pairÂ were charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, whileÂ Albrecht was charged with abuse of a corpse.
The bodyÂ is now resting comfortablyÂ at the Travis County Medical Examiner’s Office.
