As the old saying goes, “It takes a village to raise a child.” But sometimes, it takes a community to bring relief to a grieving family.
According to the St. Louis County Police Department, two suspects were arrested Feb. 12 in connection with a funeral home van stolen from a gas station the day before.
The van contained the body of a woman who was not identified by police.
In a tweet published on the day of the arrest, police thanked the public for spreading the word and ensuring the body was returned to the woman’s family.
“Stolen Vehicle Update: The vehicle has been recovered and two individuals taken into custody,” the SLCPD tweeted. “Most importantly, the body being conveyed in the back of the vehicle has also been recovered. THANK YOU for the re-tweets, amplifying this to your audiences was a great help.”
