Larceny Complaint Filed After Child's Ashes Taken From Funeral Home

Police are investigating after the ashes of a 7-month-old child were taken from the Bridgeport funeral home where the baby was cremated.

Police said a larceny complaint was filed after the child’s parents arrived at the Luz de Paz funeral home on East Washington Avenue last week and asked to speak to the director.

The secretary left to get him and returned to find the urn containing the child’s ashes had been taken from the desk, according to police.

The funeral home had not been paid in full and a larceny complaint was filed, police said.
