Man Steals Chevrolet Hearse With Body Inside, Doesn’t Get Too Far

Most drivers probably think no one would want to steal a hearse, so they can’t be blamed for leaving their keys in the ignition. Then again, few men would actually want to steal a hearse with a body inside in the first place.

Or one would assume that’s the case. One man from Mexico did just that – and his only justification is that he happened to pass by the car and see the keys in the ignition, so he thought to himself, “Why not?”

According to The Tlaquepaque police writing on Facebook, the incident happened at the weekend, in Guadalajara, central Mexico. The car was reported stolen minutes after the fact, which gave officers a head start and a good reaction time.

In other words, the thief didn’t get too far. He was caught on the highway and plainly admitted that he took the hearse because he saw it had the keys inside. To put it simply: he took the car because he could, no other reason.

He either didn’t know or didn’t care that there was a dead body inside.

Police say that the body of an 80-year-old man had been placed inside the hearse to be transported to a local funeral home. The hearse driver must’ve stepped out of the vehicle for a few minutes, and when he got back, the car and the body were gone.

Both were recovered in a timely manner and damage was done to neither. The police report identified the hearse as a white Chevrolet Silverado with Escalade front conversion, a 2010 model. It’s a beautiful car that clearly caught the eye of the wannabe thief, dazzling him beyond any common sense – or sense of decency.

The thief has been identified as Annibal Saul N., 40, and he’s already been handed over to prosecutors.
