TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — An Arizona woman's pleas for help have been answered after her dead husband's ashes were stolen.
Tempe police Sgt. Steve Carbajal said Monday that detectives found the urn containing the ashes over the weekend.
The urn, along with some credit cards, were taken from Karen Dory's Tempe home June 2.
Dory pleaded for help Friday, saying it felt like she lost her best friend all over again.
Carbajal says a Tempe officer recognized one of the suspects in the case on surveillance video, and that led to the arrest of 49-year-old Anthony Edward Jessup Sr. of Tucson.
A subsequent investigation led police to the stolen urn, which still had Grant Dory's ashes inside.
Carbajal says Karen Dory will get the urn back Monday.
Jessup was booked on eight charges, including forgery and credit card theft. It's unclear whether he yet has a lawyer.
