December 5, 2018

SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. (AP) — Cochise County sheriff’s officials say a woman has been reunited with her mother’s ashes after the father of her child threw the urn into the street.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Carol Capas said Tuesday that investigators located the urn’s owner after receiving a tip from the public.

The gold and silver urn was discovered near Nevada and Arabian drives in Sierra Vista on Sunday afternoon.

The woman told deputies the couple had gotten into an argument.

He allegedly kicked her out of the home and kept all of her belongings.

She says he later called and said she could “find her mother in the middle of ‘Nevada.’”

The woman says she went to search for the urn but by then, deputies had picked it up.

Capas said the woman is grateful.
