BRIDGEWATER (CBS) – A man claiming he was a relative of a deceased 98-year-old woman, allegedly stole jewelry off the woman’s body before her family began arriving for her funeral service.

That’s according to Bridgewater Police, who say last week, the funeral director at Prophett, Chapman, Cole & Gleason Funeral Home told them a man showed up at the home an hour before the woman’s funeral service was set to begin.

The funeral director allowed the man to “say a prayer” alone with the woman’s body.

When the man left, the funeral director noticed a 18-inch gold rope chain with a heart pendant had been taken off the woman.

The pendant was actually the wedding band of the woman’s late husband that had been formed into the shape of a heart.

Bridgewater Police have not filed charges against the man but say they have a good idea of who he is.
