Truck stolen in Stockton carrying a man's ashes recovered without the remains


 

A large moving truck stolen from a Stockton motel late Monday night was found in an orchard east of Stockton nearly 24 hours later. Unfortunately for the family that had the truck stolen, their father’s ashes are still missing.

Kristi Comstock and her brother Steven are driving their father’s possessions and his ashes from Georgia to Seattle. Their dad died two weeks ago in a traffic accident. They stopped in Stockton Monday night, too exhausted to continue, and then their truck was stolen. 

“Get up at 5, think we’re starting early; the truck and everything were gone,” Comstock said.

Stolen moving truck recovered, father's ashes still missing


A moving truck that once contained the ashes of a Seattle woman’s father, stolen from a Stockton motel has been recovered.

However, the woman, Kristy Comstock’s father’s ashes remain missing.

California Highway Patrol officials are calling it “good police work” that led investigators to the missing Penske moving truck; however, when CHP informed Comstock of the discovery, she and her brother expected to find the ashes as well. That unfortunately was not to be the case.

CHP officials report the Penske truck was discovered deep in an orchard about five miles away from the motel it was stolen from on Monday.

Comstock and her brother were making the haul from Georgia to Washington with their father’s remains following his sudden passing two weeks prior, the victim of a car crash.
