That's MY man!

Because we here at Popping Culture strive, as always, to fill in the gaps left by Jerry Springer, there is this story:

A woman was found guilty by the Sheboygan County Circuit Court of possession of stolen property. That property? The remains of her dead boyfriend.

She had originally been charged with digging up the remains herself, but managed this inciteful defense:

“I did not dig up those remains; they were brought to me,” Stolzmann told Bourke. “I should have returned the remains. I did not and for that I apologize.”


Bonus touch of class:
In addition to the cremated remains themselves, the defendent also had possession of a pack of cigarettes and a bottle of beer that had been buried with him.

Full story here.

"She has been humiliated worldwide because this story has been picked up by all the news agencies"

If this statement is true, then why did I have to hear about it in the Sheboygan Press? OR, are these folks now saying that because it appeared on Popping Culture that it is now "worldwide" news? If so, way to go Dan!!!

The dead guys family came off like a bunch of drama queens to me. It's a jar of ashes, not a rotting corpse. It seemed as if they cared more about going after the girlfriend than anything else.
