I get that Halloween is coming up, but this is taking things way too far! 

According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, portions of a body at the Crown Hill Cemetery were stolen, presumably in a theft that occurred last night.

On the morning of October 11th, deputies were dispatched to the cemetery at 7777 W. 29th Avenue in the Denver area to investigate the report of vandalism to a mausoleum.

The crypt front of a private mausoleum was severely damage, according to the sheriff’s office. The crypt and casket inside were also damaged.

Investigators believe the suspects entered the cemetery sometime overnight, forced their way into the crypt and gained access to the casket. The sheriff’s office said the casket was pried open and portions of the decedent’s body were removed.

The investigation into the situation continues, with the sheriff’s office instructing anyone with information related to the case to call a tip line at 303-271-5612.
