Young Woman's Corpse Stolen After Funeral Service

San Antonio police are looking for a stolen corpse that has been missing for nearly two weeks after a funeral.

According to KCBD, 25-year-old Julie Mott died of complications from cystic fibrosis August 8th. Her funeral was held a week later on the 15th. Mott's corpse was taken from inside the San Antonio funeral home just hours after her service. The funeral ended around 1:30 in the afternoon -- and the building locked up around 4:30. The next morning, funeral home staff discovered the body was gone.

"We just want our daughter's remains returned so we can have some closure to our grief," her father told KCBD.

According to police reports, there's one potential suspect, a man in his twenties who was obsessed with her -- constantly texting and calling. He was also the last person to leave her funeral. The suspects name and relationship to mott has not been released at this time.

"This is a family business of five generations and I am just not believing that this is happening," said the Mission Park Funeral Home owner.

Abuse of a corpse is a class a misdemeanor, but police say once the body is recovered, more charges could be applied. The funeral home is offering a $20,000 reward to solve the case.
