ODESSA, Texas (AP) — Police have arrested a woman suspected of stealing a ring from a corpse at a Texas funeral home in an incident captured on surveillance video.
Odessa police on Tuesday arrested 41-year-old Kalynn Homfeld on a charge of theft from a human corpse.
Police have said the ring stolen Friday was worth about $10. Investigators did not immediately say what led them to Homfeld or whether the ring was recovered.
Police on Monday released security video of a woman seen entering a viewing room at Sunset Memorial Gardens & Funeral Home, reaching into an open casket and fumbling to remove something from the female corpse.
The suspect drove off in a car. The theft was discovered Saturday.
Online Ector County jail records didn’t yet list custody or attorney information for Homfeld.
