Suspect steals urn with human remains in Aloha
Washington County investigators are searching for a suspect who allegedly stole jewelry, including an urn that contained human remains from a home at the intersection of Southwest 198th Avenue and 199th Court in Aloha.
On the evening of Wednesday, Jan. 19, a woman reported to 9-1-1 dispatchers that someone had entered her home, but she wasn't sure if they were still inside, the Washington County Sheriff's Office said.
Deputies, including a member of the K-9 team, arrived quickly to search the area, but the suspect was not found, according to the Sheriff's Office.
The woman later discovered that some of her jewelry had been stolen, as well as a heart-shaped urn that contained the ashes of her late husband, officials said.
The urn, around 3 inches wide, is described as heart-shaped, brush-painted blue and metallic, with the engraving, "James Arthur Bishop, My Love."
Anyone with any information about the burglary or location of the stolen locket can contact the Washington County Sheriff's Office at at 503-629-0111 and reference case 50-22-951.
